17-Dec-2007 UPDATE: The free serial number has expired, though you can still download a free 30-day trial. There is another free alternative; I’ll write about it later this week.
We all have our favorite tools, utilities and websites. One of mine is SnagIt, a great product from TechSmith that makes screenshots a snap. SnagIt isn’t free, but it’s one of those tools that I find indispensable.
Now TechSmith is offering free serial numbers for SnagIt 7.2.5! It’s not their latest version, but it’s not crippled or limited in any way. SnagIt gives you tremendous control over how you capture, save and print screenshots. My personal favorite feature? SnagIt can automatically capture long, scrolling web pages into a single image!
Why are they giving away serial numbers? It’s a great idea to introduce people their products, and hopefully convert a few into paying customers. Not only do you get SnagIt 7.2.5 for free, but you can upgrade to the latest version for half price. Not a bad idea.
To get SnagIt 7.2.5 and your free serial number, download one of these files:
- ftp://ftp.techsmith.com/pub/products/snagit/725/SnagIt.exe – English
- ftp://ftp.techsmith.com/pub/products/snagit/725/snagitde.exe – German
- ftp://ftp.techsmith.com/pub/products/snagit/725/snagitfr.exe – French
Then visit the TechSmith website here and give them your name and email address. I got my key in my inbox less than one minute later.
Hats off to Amit Agarwal at Digital Inspirations for the tip!
