Capture and then transfer multiple captures to MS Word?

Using SnagIt 13, I captured several hundred screenshots of an online presentation/ class over a 1 week period. I need to transfer those captures in time stamp order, to a Word Doc.
Many people I have worked with have had similar needs - capturing an online presentation - just the slides (we can record it). The only available option using SnagIt is to copy each slide individually and paste them into Word.  Took me 7 hours to transfer about 180 captures!

Hello there williamholloway,

You could create a custom profile and save those images to a folder with a date and time stamp automatically.

Then, just open WORD and chose "Insert". Navigate to your saved folder of images, select them all and import them. They will already be in the correct order.

Very Simple and FAST indeed.

See Image Below, Click to Enlarge.If you need further clarification, just ask.I kinda threw the image together.
But I already tested the profile to ensure that it worked on my end.

Regards,Joe

Joe,
Got the Profile setup (looks a bit different in 13.1).  It didn't create the folder automatically - should it have done so?

Hey Joe - thx!  I figured out that I needed to create the folder.  I should be good going forward for captures, right. Can I also use this method to transfer some previously captured items?

This will only work correctly if the Images are date and time stamped at the time they are captured.
