I just upgraded from v11 to v 12.1.0 and wanted to add the stamps from the previous version and see that the folder structure is different. How do I add the stamps from previous versions?

TechSmith installs the stamps and other accessories to a variety of  directories without allowing users to specify the install path. It pisses me off to no end, especially since the use multiple directories.

What I did over a decade ago was find all directories where the SnagIt stamps were installed, then:
  •     renamed them using a consistent naming convention
  •     sorted them into new named directories logical to me
  •     moved them all to one directory in MY DOCUMENTS [aptly named SnagIt Stamps]
I now manage and install all the stamps in the one directory, as well as add new stamps I create.

If you still have SnagIt 11 still installed you can,

 Open your SnagIt 11 folder from the C-drive > Program files (x86) > TechSmith > SnagIt 11 > Stamps

Copy and paste any folder from SnagIt 11 Stamps into SnagIt 12's Stamps folder.


You can download a lot of styles by selecting download more and let the installer install them.

All of our stamps are also still available on the website (along with some newer ones).  Plus, Snagit Windows now has rotatable stamps, so if you download the new installers you can get the rotatable versions.  These can be found here:
