Snagit 10 Released With New Capture Tools

The Windows (s msft) version of Snagit, Techsmith’s popular screen capturing and editing app, has just been updated. The latest release, Snagit 10, sports a number of neat improvements, including:

  • All-in-one capture. The new all-in-one capture tool lets you select a full screen, region, window or auto-scrolling area during the capture process with a single hot key or mouse click. An enhanced magnifier window and cross-hairs provide extra precision when performing a region capture.
  • Transparency. This lets you to remove the solid white background to allow captured images to float seamlessly on web pages, presentation slides and color documents.
  • Text editing. You can now capture and edit text from websites and applications along with all its formatting. You can  edit text color, font style, size and more using Snagit’s editing tools.
  • Direct output to Screencast.com.­ The new Screencast.com direct output enables any capture to be made public, private or password-protected.
  • Auto-scroll enhancement. Auto-scroll can sense when you’re on a web page that scrolls, and automatically move through the page capturing it both vertically and horizontally. The new faster auto-scroll capture includes a new notification window to signify when scrolling is in progress.

Snagit 10 is available now, and supports Windows 7, Vista, XP and XP x64. A single-user license costs $49.95, with an upgrade price of $24.95
for current customers (a 30-day trial is available). The Mac version of the app, which Will wrote about previously, is still in beta.
