Hello,

Is there a way to make a picture monochrome and highlight one color. For example like in this picture: 



Is there a way to achieve this in Snagit?

Thank you very much.

Kindest regards,
Rob

With your image in the editor and in color
Use the freehand selection tool to draw around what you want to retain the color.

With the selection still active Right-Click on it and click "Invert Selection"

Then click in the Effects panel use the Grayscale Option under the "Filters" option

Click apply.

I did a really quick selection on this so it's not perfect but shows the results.

To Note:

You can also use the Polygon selection tool and click your way around the part of your image that you want to keep the color if you don't want to Freehand draw around it.

Sometimes that is easier.
