Is there a way to set SnagIt 2020 to age out images after a certain amount of time?

Right now, it keeps lots of history I don't really need. Is there a way to tell it to automatically delete images older than a month?

Open the snagit editor. There is a thin grey line at the very bottom of the editor window, hover over it and it widens. Click on the first image to be deleted, then hold your shift key, scroll to the other side, click on the last image to delete (all in between are selected), then click the delete key.

How to easily select and delete Library in bulk.
Selections are broken down by date captured.

You can open the Library.
Under the Recent Captures heading.
You  can select saved images by the year captured.
You can select the Year and a specific month as well.

Highlighting a month or year will force the Library to display "Just Those Images"
From there you can hit the keys. "Ctrl + A"
This will highlight all the images currently in the Library.

From there you can right click and chose remove from Library. Which will delete them from the Library.

You can also chose to Delete them.HOWEVER! This will delete the ones saved to your computer as well.
This option must be used with extreme caution.

Joe's method allows you to be discreet about what gets removed. However, he neglected to mention that you can also drill down to the day by expanding a selected month. Also, once a selection is made in the library pane, you need to select an image in the image display pane before 'Ctrl-A' will work.
