Today I am reviewing Snagit.
I love this program I learned about it at work and it is one of the tools we use to capture screen shots to make professional looking handouts. I love it so much I purchased it for my own use at home and started using it to make my quilting handouts.
You might ask how does this help me do genealogy? It doesn't but what it does do is take screen shots of documents, pictures, anything that is displayed on your computer screen. After you have captured the screen shot you can highlight, place squares, stamps or other items. One of the other features I like is that the screen shot is not distorted and it can be re-sized.
Let me show you a couple of ways I have used it in conjunctions to doing genealogy.

I have used the screen shots in my blog posts, here, here and here.
I have used it in emails to my cousins asking them for more input. The below screen shot show some of the stamps in the program, check mark, question mark and word ballons.

I am sure you will come up with your own ideas on how to use Snagit while working on your genealogy. They have a 30 day free trial on their website.
I'm not affiliated with them, I am just a happy customer.
