Directly Send SnagIt Captures to WordPress, Typepad, Movable Type, AIM, Skype and More

SnagIt is one of the most popular screen capture tools available today, we have been using SnagIt for quite some time now to create the images for the blog and other uses. SnagIt in itself is a very feature rich tool, providing you with various options to capture images or record screen activities.

In addition to the built-in features SnagIt also provides accessories called as Outputs which allow you to send the capture directly to another service. By default SnagIt allows you to send the captures by email, upload it to a FTP site or to office products such as Word, Excel or Powerpoint.


With the help of Output accessories you can send the output directly to various popular blogging platforms such as WordPress, TypePad, Movable Type, LiveJournal in addition to allowing you to send images directly to messengers such as AIM Skype.

They also have a option to upload the images directly to your Flickr account, for a complete list of supported outputs visit the SnagIt outputs accessories page.

    SnagIT is a cool tool, but there’s a similar tool in ScreenGrab. Screengrab is a Firefox add-on that provides similar functionality and it’s FREE.

    You can copy or select a part of your web screen, right from the Firefox browser and cut/paste the saved .jpeg info into an email or blog.

    Screengrab is for copying what you see on your browser.

    SnagIt can grab any info off the desktop.

    I have and use both, and they’re great to have.

      @Dave thanks for the information, I have tried screengrab too and find it pretty useful while using Firefox.

    Even better than a screenshot is a making a quick video. My Screen Recorder is one of the best screen recording software. It records your screen and audio from the speakers or your voice from the microphone – or both simultaneously. The recordings are clear and look great when played back on your website, uploaded to YouTube or used in your presentation! It will record directly to standard compressed format that works with any video editor or any tool, no conversion required.
