Here’s a quick and easy fun tip for working with SnagIt, the screen capture program of choice for most bloggers and web designers.  This program has probably been the best buy for about $30 that I have made in the last couple of years.  Its excellent if I want to add an image to a mind map, powerpoint, or to a blog article (like the images below).  It only takes about 30 seconds, and if I like I can even push the image out to Photoshop and do some more advanced work.

SnagIt has a number of accessories and stamps for SnagIt to help both automate your work a bit more and to add more options when you put together your images.

I just picked up about a dozen of these stamps (they are free btw).  The call out options and the keyboard stamps are two that I suspect I will get a lot of mileage out of.  I create a large number of callouts in pictures and for my tutorial work, I think it will help to be able to explicitly provide an image of the exact key as opposed to typing something like ‘tab’ key.
