If Camtasia does all that and more, why get Snagit?

SnagIt allows easy screen capture and annotation of images. That's its primary function. Sure, it can be used to capture video, but that's not really its strong suit.

Camtasia captures and allows editing video. It really isn't intended for capturing screen shots. 

If you are in a position to get both, I'd highly recommend it because there are things SnagIt can do that Camtasia cannot. And sometimes you encounter situations where it's infinitely helpful to have SnagIt available to do those things that you later use in Camtasia.

Just my own two cents worth. Others may have different viewpoints.

Cheers... Rick :)

Thanks for the speedy reply Rick. I've been plugging along taking screenshots, then importing them to Corel for editing, cations etc., so this will be a huge time saver .
