    Annotation software

    This software (see attachment) which has the marquee in the form of a 3D tube, is what I am looking for, so far unsuccessfully. It is used by posters on tenforums.

    What is its name please?

    Have a look at Screenpresso: The Ultimate Screen Capture Tool for Windows there is a free version.
    As usual Jerry is right: that's the one I am using. I recognize OP's screenshot, it's part of a screenshot in Macrium tut I made so I can say with certainty that the highlight and pointer in OP's example are made with Screenpresso :)

    Hi:

    Another option is Snagit from Techsmith, based in the U.S.

    Techsmith - Snagit


    It is paid software, but:
    • Each license may be activated on up to 2 systems;
    • There are significant discounts for educational and similar users, and for renewals;
    • The software is EXTREMELY powerful and full-featured;
    • Support is excellent.


    The current version (13.x) is fully Win10-compatible.

    I use it every day for work and home, on multiple platforms (currently Win7 and Win10).

    Cheers,
    MM

    {Screenpresso seems to have been designed with Snagit in mind.}

    It looks good. I may take it for a test drive.

    Just curious...

    What factors determined the switch?

    How many systems per license?

    Thanks!

    It's a few years since I switched but I think it was just better and prettier at making the types of "click here and here" screen shots that I need.

    I've no idea on the licensing as I only use one PC to work, the laptop and surface are just for travel/emergencies so only need the basics.

    It's also the app that Shawn uses for the tutorial screen shots.

    Yes, their stamps/arrows/graphics do look a bit "fresher" than at least the default offerings for Snagit.
    (There are additional stamps sets available through Techsmith and an affiliated 3rd-party vendor.)

    I have 3 rigs, so Snagit may still be a better choice for me, unless 1 license can be used on more than 1 PC.
    The pricing page only offers a 10% discount for 2 licenses.
    I do not see a similar discount for 3 to 9 licenses.

    But it still might be worth the cost.:)

    Thanks!
