Has anyone used TechSmith's "Snagit for Mac Beta"?

I used for years on a PC and loved it because it would grab a .JPG of any screen ......but as a new (two-week) MacMan(?) I do not want to download anything that would spoil the reverie of using this fantastic machine (why did I wait so long?).

I'm not familiar with the product but OS X already has quite a few ways to capture parts of your screen, the screen as a whole and particular windows. While you aren't given options to choose format out of the box (this can be changed with some manual editing), you can nonetheless take screenshots of various things quite easily.

Shift-Command-3 - Whole screen (both screens if you're using two monitors)
Shift-Command-4 - Part of the screen
Shift-Command-4 + spacebar (push after pushing S-C-4) - Window

What are you looking to take a screenshot of?

We have Snagit on our PCs at work. There are a few fans of it that I know but I've never really found it that useful. I may check out the Mac version though, thanks.

Here are a few more ways for a screen captures and a way to change the Save location and image format from PNG to something else.


Screen Capture:
* Command-Shift-3: Take a screenshot of the screen, and save it as a file on the desktop
* Command-Shift-4, then select an area: Take a screenshot of an area and save it as a file on the desktop
* Command-Shift-4, then space, then click a window: Take a screenshot of a window and save it as a file on the desktop
* Command-Control-Shift-3: Take a screenshot of the screen, and save it to the clipboard
* Command-Control-Shift-4, then select an area: Take a screenshot of an area and save it to the clipboard
* Command-Control-Shift-4, then space, then click a window: Take a screenshot of a window and save it to the clipboard

In Leopard, the following keys can be held down while selecting an area (via Command-Shift-4 or Command-Control-Shift-4):

* Space, to lock the size of the selected region and instead move it when the mouse moves
* Shift, to resize only one edge of the selected region
* Option, to resize the selected region with its center as the anchor point

Or you can use Preview's Screen Capture under the File menu to capture From Selection, From Window or From Entire Screen. Then you can give the screen capture a name, Select the file type and save to the Location of your choice.

ThinkerTool will allow you to change the screenshot image format from PNG to jpg or other formats and save to other locations beside the Desktop.

I'm big on SnagIt in Windows. But on the Mac, I discovered TechSmith's Jing, and it does everything I've ever needed SnagIt for.

Liquid and computers don't mix. It might seem simple, but we see an incredible amount of people post here about spills. Keep drinks and other liquids away from your expensive electronics!
