User guides (or user manuals) help users know exactly how to use a software application or product in a few minutes.
Quickly create a user manual template with a simple and professional look.
Get dozens of professionally designed templates, and customize them in minutes. With a few simple clicks, you can change the screenshots, colors, fonts, and layout to fit what task you are trying to show.
Learn how to create a one from a template, step by step.
To use a template, click the Create button and choose Image from Template or select images from the Recent Captures tray, then right-click and choose Combine in Template.
Depending on what your guide will show, you can choose a template with numbered steps, a timeline, or even a comparison to show the difference between two images.
If your images are not in the order you desire, drag to rearrange them. To make your user manual easy to follow, add title text and brief captions in the text boxes. When everything is set, click Combine.
Images are scaled to fill each space. To adjust the zoom and position of an image, double click the drop zone, and resize and move the image as needed.
When your guide is complete, print it, save it as a PDF or image file, or send it to one of Snagit’s outputs like Screencast.com, Email, or Microsoft Word for quick and easy sharing.
If you're tired of wordy emails, manuals, and documentation there's a better way. Snagit lets you quickly capture a process, add your explanation, and create visual instructions.
