STORY: SnagIt 7.1 - New Instant Messenger Output

Dan the technical writer was delighted to see that his friend in
Taiwan, another technical writer, was available to chat on Instant
Messenger.

Dan knew it was the perfect moment to try SnagIt's newest feature -
the ability to output to all of his Windows and MSN Messenger buddies
- directly and immediately.

He captured, sent and sat back to see the results. Sure enough, it
worked like a dream, and his friend Josie was chatting about the
screenshot in no time.

Dan mentioned to her that he used SnagIt - the leading screen capture
program - to send the screen capture.

She e-mailed, "This is not the first time you've mentioned SnagIt to
me. It must be very important to you."

"Not just to me," Dan typed rapidly, "but to my job. And the
industry. And the nation. Imagine how quickly employees can
communicate with each other. Communication is improved. People can
quickly show what they're producing. Projects get done faster. All
due to SnagIt's new features."

"Oh, Dan, I can never tell when you're joking," she replied. "But I'm
downloading SnagIt right now, just in case you're serious."

Dan smiled. He was always happy to help out other technical writers .
. . whether they worked across the hall or across the world, they
always immediately understood how SnagIt could change the way they
worked.

ANNOUNCE: Free Release of Leading Screen Cap Software! SnagIt 7.1
Available!

Dan the technical writer moved too close to the car in front of him,
fighting road rage. He squealed to a stop in the parking lot, raced
into the office, and pushed past two coworkers talking the hallway.

"Dan - what's the big hurry?" one called after him.

He didn't pause, but instead turned his head to yell, "New version of
SnagIt is out today - need to know what's new!"

He threw himself down in front of the computer, yanked off his jacket
and panted as he brought up the TechSmith site. He said aloud, much
like a cheer, "New outputs - Program and Instant Messenger!"

"Profiles Import/Export!" he yelled louder.

"Improved Web Capture!" he shouted.

"Better Automatic File Naming!" he hollered.

Dan thought of the hours ahead of him. He was going to play with his
new version of SnagIt all day long. And the best part was - this was
his JOB. He was going to document to his heart's content and get PAID
for it. It seemed amazing to him.

He felt calm for a moment as he clicked to upgrade . . . but suddenly,
a newfound sense of excitement overtook him. Now, he could hardly
wait for the NEXT SnagIt release!
