Funny you should mention that. I've been using HyperSnap for screen
captures, but in our infinite wisdom, we're finally standardizing our
screen capture tool. We're buying SnagIt for the group, but we don't
have enough money to buy everyone licenses at the same time. So I
downloaded the trail version earlier this week to play around with
while I wait for a real license.

The software that we're documenting is a Web based product. Although
I can get some of the spiffy features (dialog box capture, menu
capture) to work on Windows applications, I can't seem to get them to
work on our product dialogs and menus inside the browser. :sigh::
They would have been nice to have. However, the scrolling capture
will be a HUGE bonus for the occasional product screen that scrolls
off the bottom of the page.
