This conversation has been merged. Please reference the main conversation: In Snagit, how do you do a multiple file save?

As a first time user, it seems strange to me that I need to use a separate interface for saving multiple images from the Editor. When I have multiple images selected and I hit "File, Save", I expect the app to save all the images I have selected.

Hello,

There are at least a few ways to accomplish this.

1. Snagit automatically saves all of your captures. So, unless you want to save them with a specific name or to a location other than your Snagit Library... you don't need to save each one. You can capture then edit your image without ever having to "save" it. From within Editor you can put that same capture in a Word document, PowerPoint presentation, etc. Or, just copy then paste it. For more information, search the help file for "Open Captures Tray".

2. You can go to the Snagit Library, choose each of the images you want to save, right-click on the images, and choose Batch Conversion Wizard. This will allow you to add effects, choose the file format, and apply a naming scheme to your images. For more information, search the help file for "Batch Conversion".

3. You can choose to name your capture when it is taken by setting up a capture profile. This way, when it comes into Editor, it is already saved with a name and your file format choice. For more information, search the help file for "Snagit Profiles: A Faster, More Efficient Way to Capture ".

Since you are new to using Snagit, I recommend you go through the training videos and tutorials we have on the TechSmith website.

Thanks for using Snagit!

Hello - I am trying to save multiple files saved from the editor also. I want to save them to a particular folder on my hard drive. I wound up emailing them to myself which worked fine, but does not seem like a reasonable solution. I read the info above with no solution.

I searched the help file for "Open Captures Tray" on my computer and found no reference to that. There is even no reference to the word "save"! (Windows 8, Snagit 11 (Sorry, can't figure out how to find the sub version any more)

I also found no reference of any value here.

You also say, "right-click on the images, and choose Batch Conversion Wizard". I have no such choice on my right-click menu.

And lastly, you suggest watching the videos, which do not address saving files from the editor that I can find.

Please advise. Thank you.

Click the folder in the bottom right of the editor to open the Library.. Choose the files you want and then right click to get the Wizard. Follow the prompts and take no other actions if you just want to save them. You'll have the options to save to a specific folder and make up a general filename for your captures.

The other way is to individually save files if you want individual names for each file. This, of course, isn't saving multiple files at once but does give you the option of individualized names.

Thanks, but clicking that folder produces a window above all my saved images labeled "Library|Viewing". Sadly, that window is empty.

Trying to drag my images over that folder results in a "no you can't do that" symbol.

Then that must mean that you have all your captures in the tray already saved since otherwise you would see them there. Click a folder or a tag in the search pane that has content in order to populate that screen.

Yes, this is confusing. Here is how I did it on a Windows 7 Machine. You have to find the Datastore. For me it is on the C drive C:\Users\Jeff\AppData\Local\TechSmith\Snagit\DataStore
Open the Batch Conversion Wizard

In Snagit Editor, select File menu > Convert Images.
In the Library, right-click on a thumbnail and select Batch Conversion Wizard.
In Snagit, select Tools > Convert Images.

The Batch Conversion Wizard appears. Follow the instructions on each page.
Select the Image Files to Convert

This is where you go to the Datastore. The images .SNAG. I had 44 images to convert. I organized the files by Date Modified which made it is to select per below.

Click the Add Files button to select the desired images. CTRL+click to select multiple images.
Click the Next button.

It was easy then.

I just had to do this again, but could not remember. I just search this subject and me to get here. I guess I should write a little document for myself to remember.

Just a note. I copied "C:\Users\Jeff\AppData\Local\TechSmith\Snagit\DataStore" and pasted into top when I clicked on "Add Files."
