You certainly can. Using profiles. You can either use a hotkey or you can use the Capture UI by clicking directly on Image or Video. It is explained in these videos:
Let me know if that answers your question!

For those on Windows who would like to reassign the PrtScn key to always launch an image capture, this graphic from our QA specialist Pam shows how to detach PrtScn from the big, red button and attach it to whatever capture profile you prefer. If you are trying to reassign PrtScn and are getting an error that says "The Snagit capture hotkey is in use by another program. Select a different keyboard combination for the hotkey," this is your solution.
