For over a year, I’ve been using SnagIt in my day job to capture screenshots for use in the courseware I write for SharePoint Solutions. This program makes capturing and editing screenshots so easy! Occasionally, I would need this functionality on my home computer, but not frequently enough to justify the price, so I continued to use the Print Screen button to capture screen shots and use Fireworks to edit them. I’ve also played with the trial version of Camtasia Studio for creating and editing screen videos. I hadn’t been quite willing to pay to take it beyond the trial though, so I just used the free CamStudio.
I was just catching up on some RSS feeds this evening and noticed where GTD Wannabe had a post called Download Older SnagIt for Free – Get New Version for Half Price. It referenced two articles at the Digital Inspiration site called Download SnagIt for Free – Full Licensed Version and Download Camtasia Studio with Registration Key for Free. This is for older versions of the software, but they are still very feature rich. I also understand that as a license holder, you’ll be eligible for a 50% discount to upgrade to the current version.
I don’t know how long these will be available, so if you’re interested, I suggest that you download and get your license keys quick!
