Snagit is my go-to tool for capturing screenshots and converting those into compelling visual aids to enhance my family history narratives and genealogy instruction materials. It is particularly useful for creating annotated images and privatizing sensitive visual information before sharing or publishing. We will walk through navigating around the desktop application interface and using its various features, demonstrate some of my regular use cases, learn how to backup your Snagit Library, and discuss my workflow for accessing projects on multiple computers.
