Removing white background

Hello! I just started a new company and now using SnagIt 12 Windows (previously was on a Mac). In my previous life I could remove a white background with the transparency and it would turn the white to checkerboard indicating the change. I see where I have the option to use transparency as a fill but it does not seem to make any change to my white background. It will however remove the image if I click on it. Thoughts?

Hi all;

Thank you all for your passion on the subject, and with Snagit especially, though I would like to remind everyone here that our Community Guidelines are built around respecting one-another and sharing knowledge in our User-to-User forum. Educating one another is encouraged as it helps define the TechSmith community forums as a safe place new and existing users can come to when they need peer-assistance or would like to share their suggestions. Attacking other users is unacceptable and repeated offenses  may lead to disciplinary action. Please note that if users need assistance or would like to report a possible bug/issue, these user-to-user forums are not the location to do so; to report an issue or to contact official TechSmith Technical Support channels please open a Support Ticket.

Due to the nature of the responses in this thread I will be closing it; if you have any concerns or questions, please reach out to me directly a

Thank You
