I like the added tools in Snagit 12. It would be nice if you add a Smudge tool.

Hi Phil!

Thank you for the suggestion!

Could you please elaborate on how you would use a Smudge tool in Snagit differently from the Blur tool?

HI Jonathan - I know I'm not Phil, but I do like his idea. One thing I could see it being useful for (and different than) the blur tool, is that when using blur, the edges of the blur are distinctly defined and there is no question that a rectangular area was selected to blur.

If we had something like a smudge, those edges could maybe be a bit feathered looking as opposed to a hard boundary.

Cheers... Rick :)

I was going to mention the Blur option but obviously I've long since been beaten to it, but I know that the process wasn't immediately obvious to me since it involves switching tabs. For those who are unaware of it you can select a region using the Select drawing tool on the Draw tab, and then go to the Image tab to select the Blur option from the Modify group.
