Why should I upgrade from 32-bit to 64-bit SnagIt??

Recently my organization upgraded to 64-bit Windows 10.  I have a 32-bit version of Snagit13.
I need to justify purchasing an upgrade from 32-bit to 64-bit.
I need to address their perception: "...It does the same thing!"

I would advise to wait and listen to the chatter before you upgrade. If you were happy with v13 then v2018 will be fine. Depending on the number of licenses it could be expensive for you.

I still use v11.4.1 which was the best version before features went downhill.

Usually 64bit version are faster because they use 64 bit architecture. Most out of the box systems are now 64bit

I have to agree with you on that (version 11). I am still happy to see SnagIt progress and not rest on their laurels.  I wish that could be said for other technology or software companies.

Hi geekme,

First, your 32-bit version of Snagit will continue to happily work on 64-bit Windows.

That being said, 64-bit Snagit 2018 mostly allows you to work with bigger content than 32-bit because there's more memory to work with.

One of the biggest things about Snagit 2018 is that we support OCR now, so you can grab text right out of images and copy them to your clipboard. You can also edit the text in images.  We can also detect elements within an image and treat them as individual objects, allowing you to grab parts of an image and rearrange them or edit them.

Here's a video that's less than two minutes that's a good overview


If you're talking about multiple licenses, you can reach out to our sales team; they know all the value props :)

I hope this helps!
Glenn
