Add additional images from the Library to existing "Combine Images" window

I added 6 images together using the combine images option. After editing 5 of them (20 minutes of work) I realized that image #6 was the wrong one. Snagit didn't provide any way for me to add the missing image. We should be able to simply right click on the background while in the Combine Images window then select "Library" then import an image from there onto the work space. That would have saved me 20 minutes of work.

Once you have combined the images and you are in the editor and your images on the canvas, If you have not Flattened it yet you can click on a image you want to change to select it and then delete it.

Then go back to the library and double click the image you want.

That will open it in the editor BUT also add it to the Recent tray.

Click on your combined image in the recent tray to put it back on the workspace  then drag the image from the library you just added to the recent tray and your good.

It's a monkey around way to do it but...

Someone else may post with another method but this is the way i have done it.

I  only beat you, Joe, because I was not too proud to include misspellings and poor grammar in my post. Try it some time. It takes an enormous weight off your shoulders and shaves an average of 10 seconds of most post times! ;-)

Sounds like a good idea so I voted for it.

You can however if need be, still combine the images.Then delete any image you want from the combined image.

Then copy and paste another from the recent captures tray.

You can also expand the canvas if need be.

Workaround:
Just open the new one to the timeline and combine them again without the one you don’t want.

Doesn’t take but few seconds.

Yup. Still, I'd like this simply right click feature to be added. It seemed so obvious to me I was shocked it wasn't an existing option.
