Suggestions for SnagIt

When comparing SnagIt to other screen capture applications, I would suggest adding some features that SnagIt is lacking.

1. A pixel ruler would be exceptionally helpful.

2. The ability to sample a color and get the html or rgb formula would be helpful (aside from hovering around with a temporary formula pop-up with the dropper tool).

3. Also, might I suggest the ability to manipulate the angle of a shape/line by typing in coordinates.

4. Multi-color fill with a gradient option

5. A birds eye view tool that would enable  the user to select a portion of the capture and show it in a zoomed view on top of the original layer.

6. The ability to apply a filter to the capture (e.g., preset tones, 3D manipulation, shadow of shape relating to a designated reference point).

7. The ability to add text to a shape/arrow/line without the second step of adding a textbox.

PicPick recently added several features to their application that are highly useful that you might consider implementing as well.

This list is a set of useful features that would extend to SnagIt's ability to annotate.  

As for the color discovery option, it can be obtained by importing/capturing an image with the required color and then use a SnagIt "eyedropper" to discover the RGB numbers, but that is a slow process.  Instead, I use a free tool from ICONICO named ColorPic.

I've used this tool for a long time.  It works well and allows a user to build a library of colors with the color information.
