You can currently replace one color in an image with another with the Color Replacement effect in Snagit Windows. There have been some requests to add the ability to replace a color with transparency. That would give people the ability to effectively add transparency around objects by removing the background color.

There was some good conversation on this Idea for sure. There are a couple of ways to accomplish this already. But Fill tool doesn’t allow you to replace all colors because you have to choose a specific location. And Wand does work with global color selection turned on, but it’s not where we see people trying to find this functionality.

We are looking at this now. Given the high number of votes and a couple ideas the devs had, this might be something we could get into Snagit Windows relatively quickly. This is because we already have the Color Replacement effect. For Snagit Mac, it will likely take a little longer, but it’s certainly possible. We will test it out and iterate on Windows first if we move forward with a solution.

Thank you for making your voices heard. This was another one we didn’t expect to rise to the top.

Here are the definitions of what the statuses mean for Ideas.
Here is the overall vote count for the rest of the Ideas in this roundup, as well as what has been implemented since our previous round.

Hi all!

I followed up with the development team on this idea to see where we stand and I have some great news! We're moving this idea to "Planned" and that we'll try to get this out in the near future.
