How do I make a White background in Snagit? I want to upload the picture to eBay? I took the shot with Fuse and uploaded to Snagit 12.

What additional graphic software do you have? I have no idea how Snagit would do it but software like Fireworks or Photoshop have a tool that can isolate your picture's background and remove it. Then using an additional layer add a background of your choice.

Hi,
There are a couple of ways you can do this in Snagit.

Here is a blog post I wrote on the process that might work best for you:

It might be worth trying using the paint bucket tool and trying to fill the area with a fairly high tolerance set.

Hey, Chuck

I'm a Photoshop user myself. I downloaded your image and did it for you. Photoshop is fast. It took me longer to type this response.  Left click on the image to Enlarge First. Then right click and save it. If you don't like the border you can crop it in SnagIt.

Merry Christmas.

Regards, Joe
