Missing "Save as" preview Window in Snagit 2019 for Windows

  • Updated 1 month ago
I recently switched from Snagit 11 to Snagit 2019 for Windows 10. When I save a captured image, Snagit always displayed a preview on the right side of the "Save as" window in Snagit 11. This was very helpful for judging the quality of the image, e.g. whether to save an image as a GIF in 16, 64 oder 256 colors.
In Snagit 2019 I don't have such a preview window, which is very disappointing for me. Can anyone help me how to reappear this window? Thanks a lot!

I'm not sure that you can. As far as I know there are no previewers for any file types in the 'Save As' dialogue in Windows 10. I just opened an image on my Windows 7 device and clicked on 'Save As' and the dialogue does what you describe. I cannot duplicate it on my Windows 10 devices.

Does not behave the same for other file types I tried in Windows 7 'Save As' dialogue.

I think I remember such a feature. I am going to take a wild guess and say that may have been deprecated

Hi Roland;

I just wanted to let you know I've reached out internally looking for more information on this and that I'll update this thread when I'm able to.

Hi Robert,

Seven months passed. Are there any news about this very helpful feature which I am missing in Snagit 2019?
This feature was very helpful to assess the quality of the picture with different file types and/or quality configurations before saving it (e.g. should I save the gif.file with 32 colors or 128, is 32 good enough in respect to file size).
I would really appreciate your answer about the status of my question regarding the preview feature. Thanks a lot.

best regards

Roland
