SnagIt is one of the few utilities I actually bought: V.8 first, then they gouged me for another $15 when 9 was released a mere month later. In V.10 the improvements are minimal: the All-In-One option provides some intelligence during your capture, automatically selecting a window or section as you move the mouse around. It`s arguable whether it`s worth the upgrade cost.
The input and output options are plentiful and flexible, and it`s relatively easy to do a capture, and choose which kind first. Capturing text is possible, but iffy.
The biggest issue is with the bugs. All versions are prone to crashes and TS doesn`t ever seem to fix them -- they just issue a new upgrade. V. 10 is slow to load on my system (Win 7-64, i7-870, 8 GB) and worse on my work PC (Vista 4MB), which takes up to a minute to start and capture.
I use SnagIt if I`m doing some complex editing after the capture -- the editor is its best feature -- but otherwise I use free Picpick.
