MUST-HAVE NIFTY PROGRAM: SNAGIT

Snagit box


Since I downloaded Snagit a month ago, I have used it almost every day.  I didn't realize how much I needed exactly this piece of software until I found it.

What does it do? Snagit clips web pages and converts the image to a jpeg. I came across it when I was trying to put together a listing presentation on my iPad. I wanted to illustrate current market conditions using graphs from the T.A.R.R. Report website. The Triangle Area Residential Real Estate Report is a subscription-only resource for the real estate industry in the Raleigh-Durham North Carolina area which analyses data from our MLS, public tax records, and Centralized Showing Service.  Subscribers can use their graphs, as long as they give credit to the T.A.R.R. Report as the source.

Snagit turned out to be the perfect tool for my purpose. By manipulating the transparent cross-hairs, I can isolate any portion of a web page, text or image, and save it as a jpeg. Then I can WRITE ON THE IMAGE!  I can highlight, draw arrows, add text, and more.  When I save the Snagit file, my notes are saved as part of the image. I can then insert that jpeg into a blog, print publication, or Keynote slide, and resize it as I please. Quick, easy, efficient.

The box above was clipped from the Snagit home page. I inverted the color to white on black -- added a border and shadow -- threw in a couple of stars -- and underlined "video"to remind myself Snagit does mp4 too.

 

Now that I have Snagit, I find I use it for personal communication as well as business.  I can add Snagit clips to iPhoto and Evernote, or attach them to emails.  It's perfect for creating Facebook posts and Pinterest pins.

Snagit is well worth the $50 cost.  My impressive new Ipad listing presentation got me the listing, first time out of the box. That's priceless!

Thanks, Margaret. I'm so tickled to actually win!  And now a few more people are reading my blog on Snagit  : )

Hi Praful.  I got an email last night about my win, so exciting!  If you have Snagit, dust it off and put it to use.  I wasn't exaggerating when I said I use it almost every day. 

Phil, Mac has a free clipping tool as well but  I could never get it to work right.   And I think Snagit does more manipulations with the clipped image.

Hi Brian, maybe you can use your significant other's identity to download another trial copy.
