While Snagit does not offer a "red eye" removal tool, it should be as simple as just zooming in a lot, making a selection using the oval tool, then filling that selection with a desired color.

Another way to try which may give you better results is to do as Rick states.

Use the oval shape under the "Selection tool" and do a selection of the eyes.
** You can make your first selection and then hold the shift key and make a selection of each of
the other eyes.




Then instead of filling the selections with a color,  go to the effects and use the "Color Adjustment"
effect.  Play with the Hue and Saturation sliders to change the color of the eyes.

Doing it this way will help to retain detail ie; the reflection in the eyes.
Filling them with just a new color wipes all detail out.



Just another method I thought I would throw out there.

Thank you Dubie!! You provided exactly an answer that makes sense and makes good use of the SnagIt editor. 

Rick, I think Dubie's answer should be posted in the tutorial section.

Sure, but only TechSmith can do that. I'm just another SnagIt user that tries to help if and when I'm able. ;)
