Add tolerance to region snap mode

Hi guys,

Just thought of this idea. Recently I have had some trouble using the region snip mode when colours on my screen are similar. I often have to manually snip the area I want instead of it automatically snapping to the desired area.
Especially when using programs such as photoshop, where most regions are a dark grey, I think being able to change the tolerance would be so useful.

What do you guys think?

Kind regards,

To be honest, I hardly find region auto-snap useful at all.

As I understand it, it doesn't work on colour differentiation but on modal windows.  I wish that it did use colour differentiation because 99% of my screenshots are from web pages that don't use modal boxes but do use colour to delineate different areas.

I think that as more and more apps move to the cloud, region auto-snap needs a complete rework to bring it up to date.
