What is the best screen capture software that allows for easy capture of screens and allows you to manipulate graphics?

Check out SnagIt. I use that to capture the shots and then I use Macromedia/Adobe Fireworks for editing.

I agree with Dean. I use SnagIt for everything. You can download a free trial if you want to see for yourself. Go to www.techsmith.com/

Thanks for the suggestions. My group just purchased it and I agree, it's quite handy.

Thanks again! :)

Although I am a bit late in this topic, I have been using Snagit as my de facto standard for several years. It is well worth the price and even if you don't purchase it, it will still do the job quite nicely!

Of course, it depends on what you want to capture. A simple "Print Scrn" will do nicely for localized screen captures. But Snagit allows you to do scrolling captures as well as web captures which maintain all the links. And, of course, you can do interesting things with Snagit Studio which comes with it!

SnagIt is a great tool. However, I recommend that you also check out 'HiJaak Pro' by IMSI software. This product has not been updated for several years, but it is a great little tool!

Here is the IMSI web site link: www.imsidesign.com/Products/CreativeGraphicsCategory/HiJaakProv5/tabid/333/Default.aspx?gclid=CJTwmsvdvpUCFQJ-xgod71cJ2A

Fastone Screen Capture does pretty much what Snagit does but is Free.

I recommend Screen VidShot by geovid. That is easy and has no any bugs.

I'm a bit late but I dare say that Democreator does it as well. It also allows you to record screen video.

I am successfully using, SNAGIT. I do recommend it.
