Snagit (Install)


This package skips automatic verification:

I would like to request that this package be excluded from testing. The installer requires .Net 4.6 but the test environment does not have that installed so the process always fails.

This package was approved as a trusted package on 7/23/2019.

Snagit is a image capture program from TechSmith.

Beyond ordinary screen capture

Snagit's award-winning screen capture software is the only program with built-in advanced image editing and screen recording.

Capture anything on your screen

Snagit makes it easier and more intuitive to capture your screen or record video. Capture your entire desktop, region, window, or scrolling screen.

Deliver results

The human brain processes visuals 60,000 times faster than text. Snagit makes it easy to add videos and images to your email, training materials, documentation, blogs, or social media. Or get a short URL to share your screenshots and recordings with anyone.

Virus Scan Results

In cases where actual malware is found, the packages are subject to removal. Software sometimes has false positives. Moderators do not necessarily validate the safety of the underlying software, only that a package retrieves software from the official distribution point and/or validate embedded software against official distribution point (where distribution rights allow redistribution).

Chocolatey Pro provides runtime protection from possible malware.
