TechSmith has decided to offer both of their award-winning applications as free downloads! The first application is SnagIt, which is used to capture and create screenshots on your computer. The only catch is that they will give you a free license only for SnagIt 7.2.5, whereas the current version is SnagIt 8.2. One of the big drawbacks is that this version will not work properly in Windows Vista.
Here’s what you have to do to get SnagIt 7.2.5 for free:
- Download SnagIt 7.2.5 in your language: English, German, or French.
- Request a free license for the software.
The second application is Camtasia Studio, which is used to make and edit video screencasts. This is a $300 application, but just like with SnagIt you will not get the latest Camtasia 5 that was recently released. Instead you will get Camtasia 3, but it will satisfy the needs of most Windows users with the exception of those running Vista.
Here’s what you have to do to get Camtasia Studio 3 for free:
They may not be the latest versions of the applications, but that doesn’t mean they are lacking in quality. I’m sure these will be more than adequate if you don’t care about running the latest software.
