Upgrade snagit 2018 to 2019 worth the money?

I read the comparison list of version 2018 vs. version 2019.

In my opinion the four new features are not worth the money for upgrading. The results of these "new features" can be achieved with very low effort with version 2018 functionality as well.

Or did I miss something ?

For me the pricing policy of SnagIT of the last years makes it possibly worth looking around for an alternative.

If you don't think the new features are worth the price of an upgrade.

All I can offer is, don't upgrade. Wait until the next major release. SnagIt 2020 I'm guessing.See if that one suits your needs.

I came to the same conclusion regarding the 2019 upgrade. We have a 10-user license for 2018 and the "discount" for the 2019 upgrade was about the same as buying it new. For our needs, the new features in 2019 are not worth it. We'll wait for SnagIt 2020 and see what comes with that.

I have been in a similar place  for a while. I bought a maintenance agreement then another 2 year extension with a wait and see attitude. 
They have fixed some issues in this version and added some bells and whistles

Yeah, the maintenance agreement is a bit of a crap shoot for updates. Especially if you only use it for the upgrades.

Ahhh nothing like the sheer joy and beauty of a free trial. Download, install, kick the tires and make your decision as to whether you find the new features worthy of your money!
