Snagit - A Screen Capture Tool

Snagit is a visual communication tool that makes it easy to show what’s on your computer screen.  Take a screen capture and enhance it with editing tools and effects or record a quick video.

With Snagit, you can take screenshots, edit your images, and record lightweight screen recordings. It's perfect for giving feedback, creating clear documentation and training materials, and showing others exactly how to do something.
