    Have been running both ShareX and Snagit on separate PC's for over a year. Both are good although Snagit can delete your captures if not careful. Will probably drop Snagit for ShareX on all machines.

    Operates from the System tray. Simple start and stop. Great video quality. Easy Trim function. Slower Trim Save As than Snagit.

    Greenshot vs Snagit opinions
    Most users think Greenshot is a great alternative to Snagit.

    The OCR functionality is very useful and the annotation and markup tools are plentiful and easy to use; very small learning curve for a powerful tool.

    If you're looking to make "8x10 glossy photograph with the circles and arrows and a paragraph on the back of each", it can't be beat. Lightweight, does its job, gets out of the way quick.

    can't write! Can't trim screenshots, 'capture new' is destructive of the existing, no shapes like lines or circles to highlight text... list goes on. Skanky.
