I "cut out" and delete portions of my screenshots. When I'm done, I save as a .png and then apply a drop shadow to the image. Snagit also applies drop shadows to cut and moved portions of my image when all I want is a nice edge to my whole image. I have tried flattening and saving, but that does not correct the problem.

How can I fix this?

Hey there,

When you apply the drop shadow, it applies it everywhere that there is transparency. That means there isn't a way to apply it to certain areas, and not others.

Someone else might have a better work around though!
