I've downloaded Snagit 2020 to a Windows 10 machine. Can anyone advise where do I find and how do I transfer images from Snagit 11 on an older Windows machine?

The path should be something like this:

C:\Users\<username>\AppData\Local\TechSmith\SnagIt\DataStore

Open SnagIt 11's editor preferences.
Backup the current Library.



Put that file on an external storage device.
Plug it into the new computer.
Open Preferences in SnagIt 2020's editor.

Restore the Library from the Backup.

Joe, great info, not sure if you have published this info before but, it would be a very helpful to all if this step by step information was added to the Snagit Help section as " Transfer library from one computer to another" or something like it.

Actually, TechSmith has a help article covering it. They don't provide images, but they have more specific instructions
