Sometimes I screen cap a picture that looks great in 16:9 PowerPoint and when I paste and save it in Snagit, then import into PPTX it gets blurry (imagine wants to save a great slide as a picture in PPT)

Are you able to share some examples?

What does it look like in SnagIt? Acceptable quality I suppose. What image format are you saving in? Personally, I like to use PNG format. If you were to save in perhaps GIF format, you only have a limited number of colors available. Have you tried copying from SnagIt and pasting into PPT?

Cheers... Rick :)

I am using JPG ... was using PNG. I did not try pasting into PPT from SnagIT after capturing it in PPT, but I just did this now and it's very blurry. So it's in the copy ... (good idea) ...

https://feedback.techsmith.com/ Is there a way to share the PPT with you (It's Office 365  latest version on Mac)

Sure, I would be happy to take a look and see if I can replicate the issue on my end. I too am using PPT 365 but I'm on a PC.

You could use http://www.wetransfer.com and my email address is rickstone1975 (at) gmail (dot) com.

Cheers... Rick :)

I never saw anything. Did you give up? If so, that's fine. Just wanted to ensure I didn't miss a message.

Cheers... Rick :)
