I wish the Mac version of Snagit had effect filters (e.g. Spotlight and Magnify) like Windows does.

This conversation has been merged. Please reference the main conversation: Spotlight and Magnify features for SnagIT on the Mac

I miss the color editing features in SnagIt PC. Just switched to Mac and seems like a lot of the filters and editing features I loved in the PC version aren't available in the Mac version.

I have good news for you! The feature you requested was added to our new release, Snagit on Mac 2.0!

How do I use the new color filters feature?
First, you need to upgrade to Snagit 2.0 and either purchase a license or give it a go in trial mode. Once you're working with the latest version of Snagit, select the Effects tab and click the color filters button to apply the selected filter. The default filter is grayscale, but you can change it to sepia or invert inside the color filter settings.

How do I upgrade to Snagit on Mac 2.0?
It's easy! If you already own a copy of Snagit on your computer, simply start it up and select "Check for updates" from the Snagit menu. Snagit will automatically find and install the latest version of Snagit after you click through the prompts.

You can also download the app directly from our website here: http://www.techsmith.com/download/sna...

Is this a free upgrade?
No. Each major release of Snagit may have free minor updates that offer bug fixes and other new features, but major releases of our software require a new license. However, if you purchased Snagit on Mac 1.0 or Snagit 10 for Windows, you're eligible to recieve a nice discount on the latest version. You can find details here: http://www.techsmith.com/upgrade/snagit/

What other new features does Snagit on Mac 2.0 offer?
Lots! Get more details on our website here:

Update 5/07/12:
Get Satisfaction does not allow me to fork this thread into a new thread. While we added some effects functionality to the 2.0 release of Snagit on Mac (2/28/12), this conversation has evolved to highlight the desire for functionality similar to the "Spotlight and Magnify" feature in Snagit on Windows.

I'm going to slightly update the title to help others add their voices and find this information.
