While your downloadable stamps are very helpful adding the ability to rotate them would be an even greater help.
Bracket and braces specifically.

I agree. It would also be cool to select part of an image and rotate the selection!

Linda, the most recent version of SnagIt does allow rotating of the stamps!

what version number are you running, Rick? Aside from manually rotating the bottom image and using CUSTOM ROTATE, there's no way to rotate stamps in SnagIt8/Win

Hi Jack

I'm using version 11. I think the rotation was added to this version or to a subsequent update.

Cheers... Rick :)

I will be damned. I have SnagIt set [and verified five minutes ago] to check for updates once a week. Somehow almost three weeks have lapsed without it advising an upgrade was available.

Love it they got to this after 2 years. Now if they would update the SnagIt-to-OneNote2010 to OneNote2013.

Hello, I am a great fan of Snagit - i use it all the time. It is simply amazing software. One little thing that would make Snagit perfect would be the ability to rotate stamps, text and objects being added to a "snag". Is anything like this in the works? I currently still have to revert to photoshop to do these kinds of things but if I could do it in Snagit, I would rarely need to go elsewhere. Again, great software. I am in real estate and as you know, "a picture says a thousand words". Using Snagit I can create images that convey so much information it is simply amazing. My clients love it.

That you (still) can't rotate an image by hand / manually with WYSIWYG precision and flexibility in SnagIt 10 is really silly. There are situation where it doesn't help to put in a degree (most situations indeed!), thus I just need to do it manually and judge by my own eyes through the rotate preview if it is like I need it to be. I don't want to have to save the file and open Adobe Photoshop to do that!!

It's really sad, because SnagIt is already the only screengrab tool that offers image rotation at all! Even Jing doesn't offer this option.

Please add the option soon, it's really a lot of work otherwise!

Thanks for your understanding.

Kind regards.

Strange that Jing - the mini-version of Snagit - can do the rotations.

It is strange since Jing doesn't have stamps.

Yep, I'm sure that is true. But it wasn't a stamp as asked in this thread.

First, they are free ... second, no one ever said they could be rotated ... third, why the aggression about a free enhancement that TechSmith has no obligation to provide, fourth, they are free.

YOU CAN DAMN WELL ROTATE THE IMAGE ALL YOU WANT AND SLAP A STAMP ON IT WHERE YOU WANT. AND CREATING HAS BEEN POSSIBLE SINCE STAMPS WERE INTRODUCED.

RTFM.

Wow, bet it's not a welcomed reply, but it sue as hell gives you the same bad taste I had reading your message -- and I am not tied to TechSmith in any way except as a customer.

Jose, after you insert a stamp, try clicking the Draw tab, then click Arrange in the ribbon. Once you do that you should see options to flip the image horizontal or vertical. That should work to give you some flexibility with your arrows. ;)

As for rotating, here is a workaround. Create a new image (File > New) in the SnagIt editor at the approximate dimensions your stamp will be and ensure you are using a Transparent background. Then click the Image tab and click Rotate. You will be asked to flatten the stamp, but that should be fine. Rotate to your liking, then drag this new image onto the image where you wanted to rotate the stamp!

Cheers... Rick :)

@Rick, This is a good idea and a workaround I've used for awhile for things I'm going to use more than once.

For things I need for a one-and-done job, I use a text box or a callout, customize what I need, and if needed, affix everything to an appropriate small image, crop it as tight and small as possible, using a transparent background, and move on. It's slower, time-consuming at times, but manages to get the job done.

Thanks for the workaround Rick - very helpful. But it would be really helpful if Techsmith can add the feature, they have done such a great job of SnagIt, I just love it!

I've been Snagging the stamps to an image, too. Just sayin', having the rotate option would be a huge time-saver. But Techsmith &Snagit are awesome. With my work, I use SnagIt pretty much every day.

I am REALLY limited in SnagIt by not being able to rotate shapes and stamps. Please add this feature. C'mon now.. this can't be that hard. I just want the little green handle like the TEXT tool has that lets me rotate things. Please make this happen!!

I
often use shapes to draw attention to certain features of my
illustration, but the shapes cant be rotated to match the Orientation
of say! limbs, digits of the fingers e.c.t.  Please allow rotation of shapes.

Hi
I am a devout Snagit user but would ask that you consider the ability to rotate "stamps" >I think this has been asked before so I am just adding my feedback to the list. I would be a great improvement.

I'm not sure exactly which version it appeared in, but TechSmith did give us the ability to rotate stamps. Not shapes yet, but certainly stamps!

We released the new vector stamps in Snagit 11.3 which also allowed you to rotate them. I am sorry that we missed updating this thread.

Thanks Rick :)
