Hello there,
I installed the SnagIt trial version and try to use it for multiple screenshot saves. In other words, I would like to take several screenshots and once they are in the editor I would like to save all of them at once in multiple files. Whereas we expect the GUI to easilly allow us such a simple and obvious task (right clic + save as... for instance), it appears this is not straightforward at all :S

I them try to follow the steps described in the help but couldn't go until the end because some "actions" described in the steps just not occur as they are described in the help page (entitled "Capture and Save Multiple Page Documents as Individual Image Files").

So please try to do these steps by yourself and arrange the description so that is is doable, and think about putting an easy access to multiple files save...

Thank you very much

You can do this in the Snagit Editor by selecting the images you'd like to save, and then use the "Convert Images" option, which is found just underneath the Save As menu.

I made a short Jing to illustrate how to do this: (1:07)

Hope this helps.

Thanks for providing this explanation for how to save multiple files using SnagIt for Windows. But how do you do it in Mac OS X? For starters, I can't see how to select multiple files at once: I asked this question back in 2012 I believe and still haven't seen an answer.

Hi Jeffery,

If you haven't already seen, we've added Batch Export to Snagit on Mac as of version 3.2. This thread has more details.

There is a way to do this in Snagit for Windows using the Convert Images option (see Dave's video above)...but I'm going to change this to a feature request to reflect the sentiment that folks would like an easier way to do this.
