If you want to make a presentation or a demonstration on your computer, you first need to make sure you have all the needed apps at reach.
The alternative is to use Snip, a comprehensive capturing utility that packs some nifty functions meant to simplify the workflow.
Capture desktop areas or the webcam activity
Once you install Snip on your PC, you can find its main window at the top of the screen. Since it is meant to be unobtrusive, it is visible only when you take your mouse cursor to that area.
When accessing this window, you get several possibilities: you can capture desktop areas, open a whiteboard or preview the webcam activity and take snapshots.
The first option allows you to define the rectangular region you are interested in (no additional shapes are available). The whiteboard provides you with a clean space for you to start sketching or drawing.
When it comes to capturing your camera, you can select the device you want to use, and then manually take a photo by pressing the dedicated button.
Add audio comments and freehand drawings
After you have taken a screenshot, you can rely on Snip to further enhance it by recording audio comments or narrations, then saving the result as MP4.
You can also skip this step and move straight to adding notes and freehand drawings using the available brush sizes and colors. Due to the integrated eraser, you can correct any mistake within seconds.
Save results to images or share them
Once you are satisfied with the result, you can export it to PNG, JPEG, GIF or BMP, and save it to a location of your choice.
Furthermore, Snip makes it possible for you to upload the output file to their custom server, generates a link and copies it to the clipboard, thus making it easy for you to send via email.
All in all, Snip can come in handy to all those who are looking for a straightforward way of taking snapshots, editing and sharing them.
