STORY: SnagIt's pixel-by-pixel editing grid - and romance

Dan the technical writer sifted through the bowl of Valentine's Day
conversation hearts that sat on the break room table.

"Dear one - Hot stuff - Be mine - Sweet talk," he read off the hearts. As
he eyed an attractive technical writer across the room, he lamented the
fact that these pieces of pastel sugar just weren't capturing his
feelings.

With one last glance, he returned to his desk. As he began working with
SnagIt - the leading screen capture tool - he marveled at its enhanced
capture preview window. The pixel-by-pixel grid allowed him to select
just one area of the screen, zoom in and apply the effect, with precision,
just to that area.

Dan gave a sudden start. "If I just told her," he thought . . . Dan
quickly created a card introducing SnagIt and the pixel-by-pixel editing
feature to the technical writer he admired. What better way to express
his feelings than by sharing his favorite technical writing tool?

"SnagIt - Screen capture - Auto Scroll - Web capture," he thought. When
were candy manufacturers going to make some conversation hearts that
really spoke to him?

"Candy makers!" he bellowed. "Emblazon them on sugar as they are
emblazoned on my mind!"
