    SnagIt

    SnagIt is a screen capture utility that allows you to capture, edit and organize any image or screenshot on your Windows PC.
    More product information

    At present I couldn't find any release notes about it, although you can download the update. :doubt:

    For general screen capturing, do you know what advantage this program has over capturing with Print Screen and importing into PhotoShop?

    thanks,

    Hi rich
    It does a lot more then just taking a screen capture.
    If I take a screen capture, I can use SnagIt's clipboard afterwards to paste immediately into Paint Shop Pro X. :cool:

    Have a look at their website or view the online tutorials.

    Here's already an overview. ;)

    I can do that with Print Screen and paste directly into PhotoShop.

    I did look at the web site and I think it has a lot of editing features that I wouldn't normally use. Very impressive, though!!

    Thanks for posting that - I'm sending the info to some other people.

    My pleasure Jan. ;)
    Prettig weekend, Eric :)
    Yes, Rich, you can do that with the Print Screen, but can you add text, arrows, effects, ... without even using PhotoShop.
    In the past I always had to open PSP, but not anymore. :cool:
    The best way to find out what it can do for you is trying it out IMHO. It certainly has a lot to offer.
    You're welcome, thanks for letting other people know about this little gem. ;)

    This answers a question I was going to ask - thanks.
    I have so many bookmarks to the various print screen applications to o_O me as to which one would be the best to install.
    I searched about yesterday with Hoversnap/faststone screen capture + others - going round in circles.

    I knew there was one someone recommended to me ages ago and this name rang lots of bells.
    Going to check the details and hope it will stop me wondering & at least have one installed when I need it!

    Edit: just noticed I don't think it lets me re-size image which is important but love the add text/arrows.

    Anybody got a problem with version 7.2.5 ?

    Maybe I did something something wrong....
    But below is a screenie (LOL, made with SnagIt 6 ;)) showing an error (sorry, it's in Dutch).

    Eric, any idea ?
    I still have to look closer at what happened...

    To be sure, I'll always like to start with: do I have the right file?
    So here is the MD5 checksum:
    8e3da7efce799bc4da1fc54fec17b87b

    What I wanted to say: it is the MD5 of the install-file:

    The file <D:\SnagIt\Version 7_2_5 upgrade\snagitup.exe> has the following Checksum(s)

    MD5 - 8E3DA7EFCE799BC4DA1FC54FEC17B87B

    Here is what NIS File Check told me after the upgrade:

    So, what you see, is that for some reason the following file was removed:
    c:\program files\techsmith\snagit 7\gdiplus.dll

    At the moment I don't know why.
    Maybe my fault, maybe something on my system, maybe cause I run W98SE

    Well, nice to have NIS File Check ;)

    I had that removed file in my Nero folders.
    Example:
    So I copied it to the SnagIt 7 folder.
    And now I was able to open SnagIt 7 :)

    As I said above: I don't know why that file gdiplus.dll was removed from my SnagIt 7 folder o_O

    May I ask others:
    1.
    Do you have gdiplus.dll in the SnagIt 7 folder ?
    2.
    What is the version ?
    3.
    What is the MD5 checksum of your file gdiplus.dll ?
    Mine is:
    The file <C:\Program Files\TechSmith\SnagIt 7\gdiplus.dll> has the following Checksum(s)
    MD5 - 871C903A90C45CA08A9D42803916C3F7

    Thanks !
    Cheers, Jan.

    Hi Jan,
    Sorry to hear about your problem. :(
    Couldn't find any gdiplus.dll in that folder, but maybe it's located elsewhere.
    Running XP Pro here, so I'm not sure. :doubt:

    I do remember getting an error at my work, when installing my copy 7.2.3 on my Win98 SE computers.
    I'm however not sure if it was the same error.
    I also remember installing some files into my System32 folder and afterwards SnagIt worked again.
    Hope you'll find the reason as to why that file was removed. ;)

    Hi Eric,

    Thanks for your reply ! :D

    Maybe it has indeed something to do with running an older system; I'm not sure at the moment...

    There is also a thread at DSLR/BBR-software ( ;) ) :

    Most warmest regards,
    Groetjes, Jan.

    Hey, I found it back. :D
    I downloaded the file here and followed the instructions on this page.
    Rebooted and SnagIt was back in business. :cool:

    Oops! Seems we replied at the same time. :D
    Thanks for the link Jan. :D ;)

    In which directory did you put it, Eric ?
    In the SnagIt 7 or else ?
    That might be important to know in case of a future upgrade for SnagIt ...

    I have to admit that I myself am a little bit reluctant to download a file from a site; just only wanting to be a bit cautious, you know ;)
    Well, files can always be checked at online scanners as Jotti and Virus-Total.
    And we all can compare MD5 checksums (those things are important; LOL, it's only me again ;))

    Didn't have any problem downloading that file, but I do understand your reluctance. :)
    Yes, those files can always be checked, which I also did at my work, although not with the MD5 checksum.
    Hope it will work out. ;)

    Hi Eric,



    Sorry for asking again :oops:

    Was it System32 or System ?


    Thanks again !
    Most warmest regards, Jan.

    PS:
    I'm thinking about making TechSmit aware of this ;)

    It was System on my Win98 SE.
    They are known for providing excellent support.
    Good luck Jan. ;)
