Zight makes it simple to save, annotate and share anything on your screen
I'm a longtime user of Snaggit from TechSmith. https://www.techsmith.com/screen-capture.html
Screencast-o-matic Lives! That made me insanely happy. I used that tool extensively in the early 2000's and was saddened when Techsmith discontinued it.
Zight sounds cool, but that's a big bite for Pro! I use Screenpresso, for which I pay 14.99/year. Off course, it doesn't do half the things Zight does, but I can save, annotate, copy to clipboard (which allows easy sharing via email or Slack.) It does allow you to record video of your screen, but I haven't used that feature.
I discovered Eagle around the time I was working on my first book. Wrapping my head around its database-centric model was maddening but, once it clicked, it made perfect sense.
So, here's how I make the most of Screenpresso and Eagle: Eagle has a feature to let it monitor a folder. If I save a screen shot to that folder, it goes straight to Eagle.
I don't do that directly, because of the way Screenpresso names its files. Instead, I send all screenshots to whatever project folder I'm using. If it's not for a project, I send it to my Downloads folder. Then I rename the file with tag style elements that work well with Eagle. Finally, I drag the renamed file to the Eagle monitored folder and when the Eagle import notification pops up, I click that, add tags and a folder and never have to worry about retrieving it later.
I'm going to go read your review, to see if you have inside information that I can use. 😁
i am mad at how good these recs are because i know they will ruin the productivity of my day lol. for this i thank you
The snipping tool is on win10 too, you don’t need 11. Windows + shift + s is the hot key combo.
Macs have a pretty good managed shot mode now, command +shift+ 5 is the hot key there.
