TechSmith, the makers of powerful screencast recording software Camtasia and screen capture app SnagIt, announced this morning that a beta version of SnagIt is now available for the Mac. The Windows version costs $50 but the Mac beta is free for now. It’s great.

If you’ve used Skitch or Little Snapper, SnagIt seems much more full-featured. The best parts I’ve seen so far are far more font options and really easy composite image creation.

The company’s demo video is below. This is just beta software and hopefully it will be more stable and less clunky than early versions of TechSmith’s free cross-platform video and image product Jing Project. The recently released Camtasia for Mac was very well done and appears quite stable.

One thing that’s missing is the ability to quickly post an image to Flickr or any other online site. That would be nice and is a feature that competitors offer. Easy click and drag resize is something that SnagIt could pick up from other services as well. All in all, though, this looks like a very nice product.
