Camera roll to SnagIt?

I have the Techsmith Fuse app on my iPhone. I want to send an image or video from my camera roll to SnagIt on my Mac. Can I do this? Or does it only work with images/vids I take from within Fuse? It's confusing. I do see a Library button in Fuse, and I can see my video, but I don't see any way to get it to SnagIt. I'm running Snagit 4 on my Mac.

It's convoluted but...   In the Library, tap Select and choose your item. The item displays full screen. Tap the Share button. Scroll right in the top row until you find the Snagit icon. (If you haven't added Snagit to Sharing, you'll need to do so first.)  If it's the first time (or you have changed either the iOS device or the WiFi network), you will be prompted to connect; it includes instructions. Hope this helps.

Thank you! But ... how do I add SnagIt to sharing? It's not appearing now, and when I click the three dots, it doesn't appear as one of the choices I can turn on/off (though there are a dozen others, including Evernote and Pocket. (Sidenote: So ... what's the purpose of the Fuse app?)

Snagit Preferences >> Output Panel.  It should be there to add.

There's some miscommunications here, probably my fault. You're saying in order to add SnagIt to the "Sharing" section of my iPhone (that horizontally scrolling list at the bottom), I should go the Desktop (Mac OSX) SnagIt preferences? I did so, but all I see there in Output Panel are the usual outputs that appear in  the SnagIt Edit window on the Mac ... Facebook, Twitter, Email, etc. I've already added most of those to my SnagIt Edit window.  I don't see any sort of "Send to SnagIt (iOS only)" sort of entry.

If I understand you correct, it sounds like you're trying to share from the Photos app rather than from Fuse?  Snagit and Camtasia aren't currently enabled as sharing outputs from other applications right now.  

To share to Snagit you have to:
  1. Launch TechSmith Fuse
  2. Choose the image or video(s) you want to share from the library
  3. Then share to Snagit
Does this help?

Hiya Michael, no, I was asking if it was possible to use Fuse to select something from my camera roll (images taken outside of the Fuse app) and share w/SnagIt. The first few times I tried, after connecting my device went fine, nothing happened. I'd see the image from my camera roll inside Fuse (start Fuse .. click Albums ... select an image), the image would open but there was nothing else on the screen ... no links or icons indicating how/what I could do with it. So I posted the question.

However just now I tried again, started Fuse > Albums> opened an image, and voila, I see the Share link upper right, and I see the crop/rotate/ etc vertical stack of buttons lower right. So, all is good.

Thanks for chiming in.

I'm glad it's working and thanks for the feedback.  I'll make a note of it so that we can look out for it in the future.

Looks like I also made a wrong assumption. My instructions were based on the photo being in the Fuse library. In the Photos camera roll case, I would have given you the instructions that you discovered on your own. Anyway, glad all is well!  :)
