How to save a color image, and prevent snagit from saving as a black & white image

So, I snag images in color.  I manipulate them in color in the editor.  I then "save as" (and save as JPGs), and the images in the snagit editor are still in color.  Yet, when I open the file on my computer, it is black and white.  And if I try to reopen the files from my computer in the snagit editor, they are now black and white.

How do I make sure snagit saves my color images in color???

It sounds like you may have the Jpeg "File Format" settings set to "Grayscale"

Save a Jpeg, go into the "Options" tab. Make sure "True Color 24 bit "  is selected.
