Enable sending multiple captures by e-mail, please. I use this a lot to send examples of research to colleagues and friends.

Hello anangeli,

There is not a product tagged with your post, were you referring to either Snagit for Windows or Snagit for Mac?

Thanks,
Becky

I'm a new SnagIt user, and this is the first thing I wanted to do but couldn't directly with SnagIt for Mac. So +1 for the suggestions about the ability for emailing multiple images in one email!

Yes... I now see that you can capture several areas on one session, maybe that is their answer?

You click the RED button and then press the Command key (do not release) while selecting the different areas that you want to capture. When you finish they will be floating on one capture, where you can arrange them and mail. That is neat!

I didn't know about this feature. Sounds great. Thanks a lot for the tip!

There are some cases where I need to grab in two distinct steps what I want to email (like to show variations of the same screen areas in different contexts, or show different popup menus), so the multiple areas capture might not always the perfect answer. But that's certainly a great thing to have.

It may not work on your case since it will only capture what is there already on the screen when you click. But...

What I want and think many people will appreciate is the ability to work with multiple captured files: If I made subsequent captures and I can see them on the editor, why not be able to SHIFT-Select them and send them in one e_mail? That cannot be done on my Mac version or any version, I think.

For the moment, I pick a capture from the tray, and drap and drop it to an open Mail composition window. This also allows me to place the captures where I want in the email.
