I've been using this program for a number of years and have seen it grow from a basic screen capture tool, to a pretty powerful one. You can add text, jagged edges, custom shapes (think arrows), highlights, drawings, all within the same program. What's more is the video recording capabilities are excellent--you can set the recording area, the frame rate, and you can actually zoom in while you're recording. The built in ruler is pretty spiffy. I like this way more than Snagit, simply because it offers as much for a 1/3 the price.
Pros: The ability to add blur, spotlight, add edges, captions, # stamps, add text, and so much more
Cons: Maybe add a way to round trip between FasStone Capture and Photoshop Maybe the ability to change codecs for the video recording
