I'm new to Snagit and on version 13.1.3 and learning on the fly. I created image and saved it. Now I would like to edit it further, but can't seem to figure it out. Any tips?

Did you save it as a .snag file or as a .png/jpeg file?  A .snag file saves all the components as components.  The others flatten them out so they are no longer editable as individual items.

They are png's.  I didn't know I had a choice, but I do now!  Thanks!

BTW, if you DON'T save them at all, they will stay in the library and on your tray in editable format.  If you save as PNG it gets flattened.  The image is still visible on the tray but you'll notice it has a little flag in the corner indicating it's a PNG file (from which you have to infer that you can't edit the original components.)
