Are vector graphics usable in Snagit?

So I'm aware that Snagit comes with many callout boxes and shapes and so forth. Our creative/marketing team has a particular callout annotation in Adobe Illustrator that I can export to PNG, SVG, so forth. 

Can Snagit handle a vector file that resizes when you stretch or shrink it?

Yes, save it as a PDF file and store it as a stamp, or drag it in.

If you save it at dimensions close to a typical use case  scenario, resizing can be kept to a minimal.

Must be something amiss with the format? I exported mine through Photoshop CC with the newest settings available.This  is not a strong topic for me.

However, theses a free online photo editor.https://www.photopea.com/

You can import a PNG and convert it to PDF.
I just did it successfully.

Heres the PNG I imported and the export  menu.


I chose vectorize text? Why??? Sounded good to me.LOL



I had to add it to Stamps. Then I resized on a 3000 x 2000 pixel image.It came out pretty good.Not perfection, but looks pretty good overall.

How does one "add it to Stamps"? I see an option to organize and download more stamps.
