Capture With OneClick

Snagit 4

Access to basic capture options and presets are only a click away. Turn OneClick on to pin these options to the side of your computer screen.

The New Capture Window

The Snagit 4 Capture window might be new to many people, but for some, it could be a welcome return to a more familiar look and feel, similar to previous versions. The new capture interface gives you complete control over your capture:

  • The red capture button does whatever you tell it to.
  • Quickly save your settings as a new preset.

To take a capture, it’s as easy as 1-2-3 (and sometimes 4).
