TechSmith is a software development company based in Okemos, Michigan that focuses primarily on the creation of screencasting tools that allow users to capture or record their computer screen. Their products, such as Camtasia, Snagit, and Jing, are used all over the world by large corporations, small businesses, educators and individuals.

Snagit, TechSmith’s most popular and best-selling product, is an application that allows users to quickly and conveniently capture their computer screen and annotate the results in a variety of ways.

Our Snagit Power Tools are a suite of four applications that extend Snagit’s functionality, allowing users to do potentially tedious and time-consuming tasks with relative ease

The Screen Recording DVR Tool schedules Snagit captures for a future time and date. The Macro Recorder Tool records macros ending in a Snagit capture.

The Social Media Stream Tool displays images from a user’s Facebook account that can be edited with SnagIt. The Map Maker Tool captures Google maps, which can then be edited with Snagit.

Our Snagit Power Tools are written in C#, use WPF for the interfaces and use the Snagit COM SDK to communicate with Snagit.
