Everytime I click the Outlook Icon the images is added as an attachment.

Hi Bernd, 

If you drag and drop the Snagit image directly from Snagit to the body of the email, it will show up inline (as opposed to an attachment). 

Hopefully this helps!

Hi Jason, yep I know that works just fine. I am just rather lazy and would have liked to push the button right in Snagit and it would open a new mail and put the image inside of it ;-)

Haha.

Gotcha, yeah for that workflow, unfortunately the capture is automatically added as an attachment and there isn't a straightforward way to add it inline. I'll write up an issue for our Product Manager to review with this request. I'll also do a little investigation to determine if Outlook's API supports adding images inline.

The only semi-reasonable workaround I could find is to copy the entire capture (cmd-A, cmd-C), click Share->Microsoft Outlook, and then cmd-V to paste. You'd have to then delete the attachment to avoid a duplicate.

I think it might be the preference settings. I assume you are using Outlook 15 for Mac? 
There are a couple of ways to do it:
1. Drag the screen capture from SnagIt's history panel to your Outlook message. Or
2. Select the image in the SnagIt window and then Paste to your Outlook message.

I don't believe either of those will work if your preferences aren't set correctly.
Your e-mails should be set to Compose messages in HTML by default. This setting is locatedin the Composing dialog box.

Oh I see, you were using the Outlook icon within SnagIt! Yes, that seems to only bring it is as an attachment.
