The wait is over and the most advanced version of Snagit released is now available!

With Snagit 13 on Windows or Snagit 4 on Mac, you can do more than you have ever been able to do before. Snagit 13/4 will allow you to make Snagit yours and provide the fastest way to capture information and share it out in a meaningful way. Not only are we introducing new features into Snagit, we have overhauled a number of existing functions; you asked and we listened.Snagit understands that everyone works differently and as such, is the most malleable version of Snagit available to date. The improved flexibility of Snagit 13/4 allows you to adapt Snagit to your needs, work faster, communicate more effectively, and share what cannot be put into words. Make Snagit yours and see how it transforms into your get-things-done-faster tool. With adaptability comes possibility.

While we have made many improvements and added a slew of new features there are a few improved features that I would like to highlight below. To see a full breakdown of what has been implemented and improved take a look at the links at the bottom of this post, or jump right in and try Snagit 13/4 today by grabbing the free trial here.

Each of these lists are links to separate threads and to keep things organized and on topic, I would love it if you could head over there to carry on conversations regarding these particular features; your feedback is highly valued and I want to make sure it goes to the right people!

New Features:

  •           Create an Animated GIF from Video
  •           Webcam Capturing
  •           Panoramic Capture

Improved Features: 

  •           New Capture Interface
  •           Improved Video Capture Framerate
  •           Customizable Editor Toolbar

These are just a few of the new features or improvements that have been added to the latest release of Snagit and there are more comprehensive materials found at the below links.

A bit irritated that the program downloaded the new version (requiring a new license purchase) without advisement or other notification that a new license purchase would be required.

More than a bit irritated that version 4 STILL does not support sharing with Office 2016 - although you continue to offer the extensions. This has been an issue for YEARS!!! I'm seriously looking for other alternatives.

We apologize for this confusion. Unfortunately office 2016 broke the ability to share files to it. The reason we still offer the plugins is for users who are still using older versions of Office.

I know it isn’t as nice as being able to share directly to it, but one workaround is you can drag a capture from the Snagit tray directly into Word/Excel/PowerPoint. I hope this helps,

Wizbang_fl says a new license purchase is required.... Version 4.0 downloaded, installed and
seems to be working fine.... or am I missing something? Btw, it having just updated can't say
too much except it looks FANTASTIC.

...and to go back to the previous version, it's in the Snagit menu.

Hi fellas. I recently bought snag it 12 (Jun 2 2016 ) also with one year maintenance support.

I cannot seem to be able to register Snagit 13, I copied/pasted the serial from my account. But Snagit won't accept it.

Please don't tell me I need to pay an extra USD 24 for the upgrade. I already paid 69.48 Euro (and Snagit 13 is Euro 46.60)

The new SnagIt 4.0 editor is very SLOW compared with v3 ... It takes several seconds to browse from an image to another.

Rolled back to v3.3.5.

Any suggestions?
