to which I've all tested


Tried all of those including PickPick. Snagit has them all beat, in all areas, most importantly in terms of convenience & flexibility.

The best for my needs, but not the latest version!

i still haven't found a successor to snagit over the years, and i've tried a lot of them. some have been really quite good, but none have made the process so easy and added (light-enough) features that are helpful for enhancing the captures easily.

the only thing that truly bothers me about snagit, is that i cannot take screenshots in some games while playing them. i simply have to turn off the program and use the generic windows built-in screen capture to get around this annoyance. this really isn't much of an inconvenience if you're using steam, though, which implements its own screenshot system nicely. that really is the only thing i don't like about it.

i should add though, as many software publishers do, techsmith has been adding bloatware and bloated useless features while at the same time removing some quite useful ones over the years and versions. i will NOT upgrade to a newer version because of this. i have stayed at version 10 and have trying going up and down in versions to find that this is the best version for me. so as long as i stick with this version - i get the features and responsiveness i need, and haven't found the need for moving to another product.

if anyone can recommend one that does all the things that snagit 10 can do essentially, i would be happy to hear about it. to techsmith: it really has been getting worse and worse. if i were to review the latest few versions of snagit, i would definitely give it a negative review, but when i look at version 10 in particular, it really is the best for my needs.

Very long time user of SnagIt, and sorry to say that it's just gotten worse and worse over time. It went from a 5 star app to a 3 star app, at best. Seems like ever since they updated the GUI to the sort of "Material" look (which I normally like), it's just not as good. Too buggy and unreliable now, less easy access to the buttons you customize on the toolbar, etc.

The bug fixes and new releases are very few and far between, the dev team isn't very responsive to feedback (and actually getting the things requested/bugs pointed out) done.

It's gotten to the point that I'm actually starting to seek out a better alternative, which is why I am here right now. ShareX is feature loaded, but it still looks like a Win98 app, and it's dev is also not real responsive (actually, a bit hostile and irritable at times, lol) to suggestions, so it's off the list.


New Version is very slow and crashing a lot of times while working on big images

I have been using snag it for over 5 years now.
So far it was always my favorite tool to take screenshots and edit/comment them.

Since the last update, snag it got really bad.
The performance is very slow and the editor it self crashed very often.
Also using snag it with 4k screens got nearly impossible.


The best...

Without talking about free or not, this is the best. Not only the overall quality or feature numbers, it's superior in many single respects. AFAIK best scroll capture (many capture failed for my Firefox), one of the best window detectings, quite good text capture. Plus it has very awesome image editor, intelligent all-in-one capture mode.


Always innovated!

Snagit has a lot of power baked into a non-intrusive, easy to use interface.
