There are quite some scans I need to adjust by deskewing these images, among other things. Is there an option for that in Snagit? I have been looking, but I could not find it. Does anyone have a tip? Any help is much appreciated.
Kindest regards,Rob

The only thing that comes to mind is the rotate function. But  I believe it only operates in one degree increments, so it may not be exactly what you are looking for.

And selecting a custom angle only works in one direction. If you want to rotate 1 degree counterclockwise, you have to rotate 359 degrees. You can't use negative numbers.

The short answer is that there is now skewing tool in Snagit
There is a perspective tool on the right hand side that might help along with the rotating tool but it is not really designed for skewing and it is a bear to work with for anything but a quick 3D effect

This is easily done in a graphics program such as Photoshop or some of the powerful free photo editors out there
Here is an on line and free solution that would be a good place to start

When you stop and think about it, it makes total sense as to why one wouldn't find such a tool in a screen capture application.
