My two cents.

I was evaluating some screen capture s/w over the last couple of days. I
personally feel that SnagIt is the best of the lot-both in features and ease
of use.

One advantage is the ability to store the output in different formats as
mentioned. As you may already know, usage of .jpg format instead of .bmp
results in the reduction of the file size by 90+%.

The other big advantage is the facility for capture of non-scrolling regions
on the screen. This is either not available or is a pain to use on similar

web pages, using the scroll feature, as *.gif. IMO, Illustrator is not
necessary, Snagit can do it all. If you end up >needing to crop an image,
Snagit can even open the file and you can then crop, or whatever.
