Improvements do not always mean the product is any better. I hear dozens of people every week complain about Snagit, while there seem to be fewer compliments. I DO NOT understand why, when the software guys are making design changes, that they feel the need to take away features which most of us have gotten accustomed to. Take the BLUR function. We used to be able to select a shape, now (as far as I can determine), we only have a square or rectangular option. The round/oval option was perfect for fuzzing out peoples faces in photographs, but for some reason, ya'll decided to do away with it. WHY??? The black background, who thought that was a good idea, it's not as great as ya'll think. I have the same complaint where I work, where we are bombarded with software programs that our IT people think are the best, when in truth, they just plain suck, like Concur for travel expenses. It took me (literally) a week to do my very first expense report, when I could have done a paper expense report in an hour! Please guys, when you release an updated version, please make sure it really has been improved! BTW, I use Snagit dozens of times a day both at home for my two websites, and at work, and it is one of the coolest programs ever, but ya'll are morphing it into something not as cool.
