Celebrate GIF Times, Come On!

There’s just something about an animated GIF. They’re not the smooth, professional masterpieces we see from professional screencasters. Instead, they’re the link you post to your Tumblr blog, text to your friend or crowd around your coworker’s desk to enjoy for just a moment. When we read this article honoring Steve Wilhite, the creator of the GIF format, we couldn’t help but think of the wide, wide world of animated GIF magic. At TechSmith, we like to think we’ve helped that magic Continue reading

With the help of several TechSmith employees, the Events Committee  turned our largest conference room into a ghostly dungeon of Halloween fun. Along with tables filled with spooky crafts projects, our young guests (Ok, us too) took advantage of a plethora of coloring pages, pumpkin bowling, and Continue reading

DevCorner: Who develops the software you use?

  Who develops the software you use? Well, it used to be me. I developed much of Snagit in the 1990’s and was the lead developer for the initial Camtasia product. Somewhere along the way life happened and I moved on from software development to growing our development staff, now serving as Chief Technology Officer (CTO) at TechSmith. I am happy with the software I developed and how it lives on, but I am even more satisfied with growing the people who are developing the software you Continue reading

This year, some motivated Continue reading
