I don't have version 12 installed any longer. But I believe you'll find it under the Effects tab.

They didn't remove it, I can assure you of that. It still exists today.In version 2018.

Thank you for your response. I saw it in the effects tab, but can't figure out how to use it for selection?

I'm wrong, I installed SnagIt 12.4 and couldn't find it either.

Turns out, Magic Wand wasn't available until SnagIt 13.1.0.

I've been using magic wand in Photoshop for years, I didn't make the connection.

Sorry about that.

24 January, 2017: Snagit 13.1.0

  • Shared Styles / Themes
  • Switch between sets of quick styles and colors in the color picker
  • Define multiple sets of quick styles per tool and share those sets with other users within an organization
  • Background Auto-Fill
  • Updated selection tool to automatically fill the backgrounds after moving or deleting content from your captures
  • Allows you to easily change around or remove objects from screenshots without having to recapture
  • Magic Wand
  • Select a point and adjust the tolerance to select like colors
  • Works with Background Auto-fill
  • Translation Workflow
  • Extract text from callouts and text markup within Snagit and get the text translated by exchanging an XLIFF file
  • Capture Info
  • Take any capture and automatically add on the application name, version number, when it was captured and on what OS
  • Panoramic capture now in the All-in-one workflow

Thank you. It's frustrating, because it was available in previous versions. Hard to understand why they'd get rid of something like this, but I've seen this before with SnagIt. I appreciate your feedback!
