SnagIt &/or Good Alternative?!

I'd appreciate hearing from anyone who has used SnagIt, as well as from people who might know of a better alternative ... better in terms of comparable features & quality, but for a less money.

    I've never used Snagit so I can't offer a comparative review. But I've always found the last free version of Faststone Capture to be extremely good. Google for faststone capture 5.3 and you'll find download sites.

    SnagIt is very good software for screen capture, you can also record video with it. I also use FireShot a firefox plugin to screen capture which is free. You can also use other screen capture free extension on Chrome.

    SnagIt is a great screen capture software. It;'s easy to use, less hustle and really effective. Also, yes, FastStone is extremely good but I don't think there is still a free version. You should give it a try and see results for yourself.

    Best of Luck.

      I repeat: Faststone 5.3 is the last free version and if you Google for it you'll find it.
      There are a LOT of places to download it. Just Google "faststone capture 5.3" without the quotes.

    ScreenHunter by Wisdom-Soft is an extremely good program. It has a very good free program (one of the best out there) as well as a paid version.

    I do have Snagit as well but I prefer to use ScreenHunter, very user friendly.

      @ Chronic IM -

      I Google'd for it ... faststone capture 5.3 ... like Steve suggested, and I found that their last version, 5.3, is in fact free - and that they switched to a Pay-Ware model with their current version, 5.4.

      Thanks again, Steve.

      EDIT: I think I actually searched for 'faststone capture 5.3 free'.

    I've used SnagIt for years, very easy to use - better than most and intuitive on both platforms (Mac & PC).

    I've today updated to the latest software and successfully used a 50% off coupon - so a nice result!

    so here you go guys a coupon for 2012 - "JINGPRO" this worked 16-5-2012

    You might also look into EverNote.

    It has both free and paid versions as well, plus free storage of the stuff you collect.

    I recently heard about it from Andre Chaperon.
