As far as I know, this is not possible without doing some math, so I'll add it as a feature request. If you can add any detail about why and when you need to do this, I'm sure it would be helpful to the dev team.

I found the math I needed. What I am trying to do is create a graphic that might be 3x4 and I need it to be 200 DPI. I was hoping for ean easier way to figure out an appropriate canvas size.

Hi Jeff,

Thanks for the feedback!

I'm pleased to announce that we have added the ability to resize your images using inches and centimeters with the release of Snagit 11. With the addition of this functionality you will be able to resize the image in inches and also set the DPI that you would like.

If you'd like more information on Snagit 11, here's a brief video that should help: http://www.techsmith.com/snagit.html

You can also download the free trial here: http://www.techsmith.com/upgrade/snagit/

Let us know what you think! If you have any other questions, don't hesitate to ask! We love to help.

I have the latest version of Snagit, and I'm not seeing an option to resize images using inches...?

It would have been super nice if you had added this feature as an upgrade to the version 10 we already have. I've purchased this program twice and I tell all my students and associates about it, too. Constant re-purchasing is not, and has never been, an attractive feature.

Hi Alice - thanks for using Snagit and spreading the word!

You shouldn't need to re-purchase a full license to use the latest version. When we release a new major version, we do charge for that new value...but we offer the upgrade at 50% off the price of a new license. Another option that is growing in popularity with our customers is to keep an active maintenance agreement, which costs 25% of the price of a new license annually and entitles you to any new major versions released during that time. I hope this helps clarify!

I just upgraded my Snagit because I saw that the new version has an option to resize an image in inches instead of pixels.  Tech Support said that this is only available in the PC/Windows version.

Please consider making this an option for Mac users too!

So where did the "pixels" option go? Now I only have inches and centimeters?

For which version and platform?

In the PC instance of version 2018, the Image menu, Resize Image dialog looks like this:



The drop-down offers these options:


"Pixels" is front and centre.

Unfortunately, I don't seem to have "Pixels" in 2018.1.1? Really want to get it back!

Ah! Found it! You have to enable "Resampling" to get Pixels and Percent to be listed! Your screen cap really helped. Thanks Mal!
