Of course, if you use a tool, buy it!!! I purchased two seats of SnagIt and,
if my budget is approved, maybe I'll have six more . . . (no, those users
are not using "trial" software, they are not using SnagIt at all, yet).

However, AFAIK, the only way to *buy* SnagIT is to download it . . . which
is what I did. Of course, our purchasing setup makes buying difficult if the
item being purchased exists only as a download <sigh>. After all, the
purchasing agent doesn't want the software, I do . . . <g>.

So, yes, download *and* purchase SnagIT! Or, purchase *and* download SnagIT.
But, do not abuse the trial privilege if you are using the tool
professionally . . ..
