How to have screenshots open outside of editor

Is there a way to capture and view screenshots without them opening in editor? In my job it is beneficial to be able to take and have open various screenshots at the same time. I don't need to edit them but rather reference them in performing tasks. If this isn't currently available I think it would be a good option to make available. I'm using Snagit 11.

From recollection the profile setup in version 11 is pretty much the same as v 12.

In effect you can assign a hot key sequence that will enable you to save captures directly to a file in a specified folder.  The file can be of specific attributes (type, fixed or variable name etc.)  You can also do some pretty funky things with the set up of the capture type/area plus any effects that you may want to add - image scale, colourisation and others.

I use this feature a lot to I have CTRL SHFT PrtScr set to save full screen images to a PNG at 50% of the original size - from this I get some reasonable images that allow me work with further.

In v12 the option is under Manage Profiles 

Hope this helps
