I would like to see some instructions for creating my own callouts and other shapes and a sub board on the forums where we can share our custom shapes

After a disclaimer that Techsmith is not going to support it or give Illustrator / Photoshop lessons, tell us how you are doing it and give us instructions to install our creations

This has been out there for a while in carious forms

Hi Rick, 

There's not currently any way to make custom callouts that I know of, but you can do custom stamps:

1 - Create your design in Snagit (or any other image editor)
2 - Export it to a PNG
3 - Open Snagit and switch to the Stamp tool
4 - Click the "Import Stamps" button on the right-hand toolbar
5 - Select you png from step 2 and import!

I can do that. There must be a way that we can make callouts too. Also a way to set up a file so Snagit will allow color changing, stroke opacity etc. I can DO that in other design programs but would love to be able to translate it into Snagit.

A lot of people cry for  more callouts etc and this would fill a need that has been out there for a long time
