How do I add my own image as a new quick style to a tool?

I would like to add circles to the shapes tool for example.

The process is either too simple or too complex because either way I can not figure it out.

Thanks.

Put an existing circle from the shapes toolbar on your image.  Edit its properties.  As you do so notice that on the toolbar space your new shape has appeared with a + sign in the corner.  When you are done with your edits, press the  + sign and the new shape  will be added to the toolbar

Thank you but that is NOT adding "my own image" - that is editing an existing image.

Sorry but I didn’t ask how to edit the images that were there - I asked how to "add my own image" but thanks anyway.

Dubie added what  I needed below.

If as you state you want a custom circle the way Paul posted above is the easiest way to do it.

If you want to add your own image(s) created outside of Snagit, than adding it as a "Stamp" is the best way I know of.

Note: Vector images are best to use if your scaling them up very much. I usually just use .png with  transparent background and I don't scale them very much.

Ding ding ding!

Adding my own image is what I wanted to do as I said originally.

Thank you very much!
