Mac OS X only: Many of you are familiar with screen capture tool Snagit, and now Mac users have a chance to try out a beta version of this feature-packed screenshot tool.
OS X's built-in screen capture tool Grab has quite a few options and serves many just fine — but if you're a hardcore screenshot taker, upgrading to a third-party screenshot app certainly has its advantages. Snagit can not only take screenshots of specific sections or windows on your screen, but you can also blur out parts of the picture and add annotations like text, arrows, bubbles and colour, all without having to open up a separate photo editor like Photoshop or GIMP. You can even share the screenshot via email right from the program.
The program is still in beta, so there are a few features missing at the moment, such as effects — but TechSmith says the software will be updated every 30 to 60 days, edited according to user feedback. The Snagit beta is a free download and requires an Intel-based Mac running OS X 10.5.8 and higher or 10.6.1 and higher. Post-beta Snagit will probably join its Windows counterpart as a paid app.
