I need to change a setting somewhere so i can email my snags as the little icon png and not the whole screenshot. I had it set on my old computer, so I know it can be done, but now i cant figure out how i did it.

Hi there

I think we need a bit of clarification. A snag is the raw file you captured. It contains any modifications such as annotations, shapes, and whatever as different layers.

A PNG is a flattened and saved version of the snag.

A "little icon" sounds like a thumbnail image.

So what, exactly, are you wanting to email? Can you maybe break it down for us a bit?

Cheers... Rick :)

Hi there,

I know where Andy is coming from. I also used to do this. He wants an icon in the body of the message and not as an image or attachment.

So here's how:

1). Open a new message ad click on the Format Text tab;
2). Select the Rich Text option;
3). Click in the Message tab;
4). Place the cursor at the correct place in the message body where you want the Icon inserted;
5). Click on Attach File to insert the Icon, do not paste the image into the message body.

All done, Hope that solves your problem.
