Neat trick in Snagit

Snagit is a simple application which takes screenshots.  I have it configured to automatically take a screenshot, name it with the date and toss it into a specific folder.  Very useful if you are writing a manual or need to send a screenshot to someone.

Snagit has a window snapping feature that can grab a window and exclude the background easily.  However when creating a screen shot of a window on a remote host (RDP) or VMware image I need to clean it up in Photoshop in order to remove borders that I was not able to unselect.

There is a neat feature in Snagit that I was unaware of until today.  When selecting a section of the screen to capture, you can fine tune it with the arrow keys, one pixel at a time.  This can save me the effort of editing the image in Photoshop.
