The Latest News for Jing and Snagit Updates!

Hello TechSmith customers! As you may have noticed, we’ve been busy around here making little tweaks and improvements to your favorite TechSmith tools.

Jing (Windows) – .NET update and Windows 8 compatibility
The latest Jing update (7/31/12) for Windows gives users the ability to capture and share on Windows 8. It also uses a newer version of Microsoft’s .NET framework (v4.0), which provides performance improvements and bug fixes. So the next time you open Jing, keep a lookout for a pop-window with the update.

Jing (Mac) – Retina Display Support
As of August 21, 2012, Jing now works on MacBook Pro computers with the Retina display. Jing should prompt for an update automatically, or you can manually check for the latest version in More > Help > Check for update.

Snagit on Mac – Retina Display
The July 31 release of Snagit on Mac 2.1.1, via normal update channels, provides improvements to Snagit’s functionality with Mac’s new Retina display feature.

We’re still working on a permanent solution, this release does not fully embrace the retina screen. For now, Snagit will capture pixel for pixel what you have selected in your region, and when the editor is on a retina screen, it will show your capture at double its size. This only occurs in editor, and does not occur when sharing or saving your captures. The Snagit team’s current top priority is getting Snagit for Mac to fully embrace the Macbook Pro with Retina display, and we’re hoping to have a permanent solution for you in the near future!

If you have any questions about these updates please feel free to submit them to feedback.techsmith.com.
