This was the number one request in our beta versions for Combine Images. People wanted more than just the horizontal and vertical layouts. There were requests for things like grids, stylized backgrounds, and wrapping panels. Please let us know what else you’d like!

This is what we have now:

But we’re looking to hear what other options you’d like in terms of layout. Are there common tasks that you would like to accomplish with Combining Images together that you’d like Snagit to help you with?

I'd like more control over the defaults used in the Settings panel.  The standard ones are rubbish and I always have to change them

One thing I think would be most helpful would be if the preview were to actually reflect what you will get. For example, the sample image depicted at the start of this thread shows landscape. And that's great. But if you change it to Portrait, there is no change at all in the preview. I would expect the preview to change and perhaps look like this if portrait is selected:

You can kind of get there by manipulating the Preview size, but it takes fiddling.

Something occurred to me just today that would seem to be hugely beneficial for the Combine Images tool.

An ability to configure all combined images to either the same height (if the combination is horizontal) or the same width (if the combination is vertical). Or even possibly just all images to the same dimensions and allow distortion. Although, I can't see that one being preferred much.

I had hopes that by selecting the different images within the larger combined image, one might be able to right-click the selected images and see an option there. But sadly there wasn't one. 

Seems the only option at the moment is to either ensure each image is the preferred width or height before you choose to combine, or to create the combined image, then futz with it until you eventually get the result you were hoping for.
