For those of who aren’t familiar with it, SnagIt is an amazing screen capture tool with a slew of features. The creators of SnagIt, TechSmith, have now released their free SnagIt blogging-output accessories. According to their press release, “users can capture any image they see on their computer screens, add text, and post the images directly to their LiveJournal, TypePad, Moveable Type or blogs in just a few mouse clicks.”

The ability to quickly and easily post screen-captures and text to a blog is really useful. It’s just too bad that this only works with the hosted version of WordPress, and not with the self-hosted version. I know this is easy for me to say, but they should probably be able to develop an accessory that allows publishing of screen captures to self-hosted WordPress blogs by using the XML-RPC thingy that applications like Windows Live Writer uses to publish to blogs.

In the meantime, it’s a good start…
