Old Stamps from previous versions

I have used SnagIt forever and had some stamps I downloaded from 2008 named here:
Setup_SnagItStamps_Smiley_2_ENU.exe
Setup_SnagItStamps_Education2_ENU.exe
Setup_SnagItStamps_Smiley_ENU.exe

I'm on Win10 now with Snagit 2020 

I was wondering how to import these into my latest version of Snagit. Unfortunately I work at a large company and I am not an administrator of my PC.  I Ran the 3 EXE's above and don't see anywhere they are available in Snagit 2020. Is there a way to use these in the new version?


=== Snagit 2020.1.1.5510 [enu] Diagnostics ===

Windows 10.0 Build 16299 

Display Information:

Hey George how's it going.
I was curious how you might be able to pull this off myself. I didn't have any old stamps to work with.
There's a website called the Wayback Machine.
I downloaded a packet of stencil stamps.
It's shown below.



I renamed the file extension.exe to.zip



I unzipped the file and gained access to the images within.



Once unzipped, you can use SnagIt's organize stamps feature to import them.
The best thing to do is create a folder that reflects what's contained within.
Folders are created under the my stamps menu.
You could create a folder for each set of your assets, or whatever floats your boat.

Regards, Joe

Do you have a link Joe? I typed the name in the address bar and found a link to a site but found nothing there like what you show.

Ha, the Wayback Machine is unpredictable and hard to navigate at times.
Here is a link to the webpage that has the stencils above and a few others.
This page dates back to 2011.

Going back through the pages there, the version of SnagIt being offered was Verson 10, the first version I purchased for personal use. I first worked with SnagIt while employed as an asbestos auditor at the pulp and paper mill where I worked. That version was 9.

Many thanks. I was able to stumble through adding the old PNG files to the stamps. I did not realize the EXE was a self extracting Zip File that I could look at and save the PNG images somewhere.

I'm not sure when I started using Snagit. The PNG files are dated 2007 so sometime around then.
