TechSmith has released the new version of Snagit i.e, Snagit 11. This version of Snagit brings better video capturing to Windows as well as Mac OS. The previous versions of Snagit used to have a 5 minute length and 1 GB size limit of video capture which has been lifted in this latest release making it easier for people to record and show their desktop screens to others.
With the video capabilities of Snagit 11, Jing Pro has been discontinued. The current users can have support of the software for the next one year. The support will be discontinued on 28th February, 2013.
In addition to video recording, there are some other major features added to Snagit 11. Now you can share your captured videos and images on Youtube, Facebook or Twitter right within Snagit 11. A few more stamps have been added to the Snagit editor making it more exciting and fun to edit images.
Now you can copy the image to the clipboard and paste it on the Snagit 11 editor canvas. This is useful especially when you want to copy the images from Microsoft Word or from the web.
