Tech Note: SnagIt

If you have ever fought with this key, Print Screen, you will be willing to spend $49 on SnagIt. The software from techsmith is user-friendly, supports nearly automatic download of images to PowerPoint and Word, and features plenty of editing tools.

You can find shareware that approaches the issue of screen capture and some free programs actually accomplish screen capture. But everyone I've spoken to who uses SnagIt, raves about the program. I use it for handling images and I sometimes use the editing features for adding text to a graphic.
