Snagit 11 released

Are you a Snagit user or like to be one? Version 11 is released today.

I’ve been using it for some time and is happy with how it works even though the Editor still need more performance improvements.

News in this release are:

Video Capture: Using MPEG-4 video format you can now create screen videos for demos or quick reviews, and share them instantly to YouTube, Facebook, and more!

New Stamps: New and improved stamps.

   

   

More Zoom Options: Snagit now shrinks your large captures so they immediately fit on your canvas and offers more zoom proportions for you to edit your images to the perfect size.

Spell Check: Spell checking for text in callouts.

Easier Resizing: Easier than ever to edit the size of your capture.

Paste from Clipboard: Copy and paste from within Snagit and it will automatically make the canvas the right size for your capture.

Centered Canvas: When your capture pops up in the Snagit editor the canvas now automatically creates a border around your image, giving you plenty of room to add annotations, arrows, and other effects.

And a more complete list of news including removed features.

  • Added MP4 support for video output.
  • Added spell checking to callouts and text capture.
  • Added Camtasia Studio output, Screencast.com output, and YouTube output to the default install.
