While the Highlighter is effective in some scenarios, in can also be effective to highlight an area of an image by darkening everything else around it. Can Snagit Editor do this?

With the Spotlight & Magnify Effect it can be done.

Make a selection with the selection tools of what to want to remain visible
and apply the Spotlight & Magnify Effect .

Increase the Dim option to darken the image around your selection

Perfect, thank you! I knew it had to be somewhere, I was looking on the toolbar for it. I hadn't used Effects before.
