Simplify tool suggested changes

After upgrading to SnagIt 2019 I’ve used the Simplify tool extensively for modifying screenshots for uses in various documents. Both to simplify a document and to be GDPR compliant.

There are however some changes I would like to see implemented:
  • Transparent background, as suggested by meldoc.
  • Make “Show  Original” button available for all Simplify tools and not only when using “Auto Simplify”.
  • Apply “Auto Simplify” to a selected region of the image instead of the entire image.
  • Quick Styles & Themes for “Simplify”:
    When simplifying multiple images from the same source it would be useful to reuse the same colours in order to maintain a consistent styling. At present this means I have to change each colour manually for each new image.

Thanks for this feedback. We're keeping track of simplify suggestions and I know there's some brainstorming going on around improving the feature.
