Using Snagit to Capture Items for Your Genealogy Research

Saturday August 24, 2013
1:00 p.m. – 3:00 p.m.

California Genealogical Society Library

Whatever you can see on your screen, Snagit easily captures it for your immediate use. Snagit is a screenshot program that captures images, video, and even audio. Snagit works on PC and Mac.

You can capture specific regions, windows, a full screen, scrolling windows, menus, entire Web pages, and create video recordings with less than three clicks! The images and video recordings can be edited and shared with others or be included in your research project and genealogy database.

This class will show how easy it is to use the tool to do these things:
  • Capture a screen shot of what is on your monitor
  • Enhance these digital images with text and other effects
  • Tag the images for easy retrieval later
  • Record a video
  • Organize the images with easy auto-storing
  • Share images and videos via email and social media sites
  • Insert images into reports and other projects
This class is a demonstration on Snagit and is not an actual class with instructions. Laptops are not required.

Register online.

The class is limited to thirty participants and is a free benefit of membership. Non-member fee is $20.00 (non-refundable) and can be applied towards membership on the day of the class.

Preregistration is required. Walk-ins will not be admitted. Registration confirmations will be sent to the first thirty registrants. Additional names will be collected and placed on a waiting list in case of cancellations.

Tim, wish I could make this presentation. I have Snagit and love it. Would like to learn more about the software. Capturing photos and the ability to enhance them without degradation of the photo clarity is a great feature. A lot of good features so you don't need optional software very often. I haven't tried the video option yet. I recommend this class and software.
