1. “Engage!” your viewers with the many features of Camtasia


Be “number one” in your office or school by creating amazing screencasts! Incorporate zoom, spotlight, and SmartFocus features to “make it so” awesome! Not editing your vids down is “highly illogical.” Simple, easy, awesome video editing: you couldn’t before, but now you “Kaaaaaaahhhhhhhn!”

2. Don’t let your institutional knowledge go down a black hole

black holeBlack holes suck in everything, including great ideas, processes, and training. Stop your institutional knowledge from disappearing forever! Store it safely and securely as always-viewable video with TechSmith Relay.

3. Honey, I Shrunk the Photo

honey I shrunk the kidsIs your electromagnetic shrinking machine on the fritz again? Try shrinking stuff with Snagit instead. Crop, resize, and adjust your photos in-app. You can resize anything! Your couch. Your kids. Your neighbor’s kids. (Disclaimer: will not shrink apples.)

42. Make your own “Guide to the Galaxy” with Snagit!

hitchhikers guideFirstly, do you know where your towel is right now? Okay, good. Secondly, Snagit is perfect for creating manuals and step-by-step guides. Simply snag and drop into your document. Add arrows, text, and highlights throughout. It’s not entirely unlike cutting and pasting life, the universe, and everything.

5. Send your photos from your smartphone to Snagit at the speed of light using Fuse!


Okay, it may not technically be 186,000 miles per second but you won’t be able to tell the difference. TechSmith Fuse for iOS and Android transports your photos from your smartphone to your computer instantly, with the touch of a button. Come on Einstein, this is a no-brainer!

6. Teleport anywhere in the universe with Camtasia greenscreen!

Camtasia’s built-in green screen capabilities allow you to pseudo-travel anywhere in the known universe. Camtasia: the lazy person’s teleportation device!

7. Snagit is like the Death Star…they’re both all-in-one solutions!

death starWhether it’s having millions of voices cry out in terror and then suddenly silenced, or snagging a photo off the Internet, we like to keep things simple and easy. Snagit is the only capture tool you need. Videos or stills: upload directly to screencast.com, Google Drive, or directly share the URL. If it’s something you want to grab, Snagit is now the ultimate power in the universe!

8. OUTATIME? Grab it quickly and easily with TechSmith Fuse!

Bonus feature: when you take family photos with TechSmith Fuse, your arms and legs don’t get erased from existence!

9. Rock Paper Scissors Lizard Spock Camtasia

big-bang-theory_l12It’s very simple: scissors cuts paper, paper covers rock, rock crushes lizard, lizard poisons Spock, Spock smashes scissors, scissors decapitates lizard, lizard eats paper, paper disproves Spock, Spock vaporizes rock, and, as it always has, rock crushes scissors. And you can record it all with Camtasia. Bazinga!

10. Be the Michael Jordan of your office and save the galaxy!

spacejamDon’t let those other Monstars in the office take all the credit! Use TechSmith solutions to become the Galactic MVP. Take your organization from being a “Moron Mountain” to an Intergalactic Dream Team!

11. Don’t leave home without your screwdriver or Snagit!

tardis2 2Don’t let your coworkers think you’re just “a mad man with a box!” Consider Snagit your Sonic Screwdriver and put your computer to work! Whether you’re picking the lock on a nugget of institutional knowledge or illuminating the correct course of action, use simple tools in the Snagit editor to pull it all together.
