Set share option to Photoshop

  • Question
  • Updated 2 years ago
In Snagit 13, I would like to add a new preset so, I first open the capture in Editor, and then, clicking the Share button, the image will be sent to Photoshop.
I've tried the New preset option but there isn't a Photoshop entry in Share dropdown box. I only see File, FTP, Screencast.com etc.
Any help please?

Save it as a PSD but it does not preserve the layers

I just added a request to make the layers available. If you want this,  please go vote and add your comments

You have to add the path to it first.

Open the editor and click the blue share button, then click on the options cog



Next click on "Manage Custom Program Destinations..."



In the next window click on the + sign to add a new program output
and fill in the appropriate info and hit enter





Close down Snagit and reopen and it should now be a "Share Destination" in the
share capture/ presets

To share from the Editor click the Share button and click "Program"



then select Photoshop



To add it to a capture preset you will find it under the share options





:)

The big "BUT" though as you state, it doesn't preserve the layers

SNAG is the only format that preserves the layers. I just added it to the wish list and it fits in with other things they are doing

You can always open the main graphic in PS then open the snagit stamps folder and build it there. Yes a LOT more difficult but occasionally you may need all that a high powered graphics program will provide ... stuff that probably doesn't belong in a scree grab / mark up program (just my 2 cents on that one)
