We will also be updating other threads to let people know of features that they were interested in.

I want to thank you for participating in this community. You’ve helped shape Snagit 2019, and Snagit in general for the better.

Here are the main features in this release: https://www.techsmith.com/snagit-upgrade.html

A more exhaustive list:

Combine Images

  • Quickly and painlessly explain a series of steps by combining multiple screenshots into a single image.
  • Automatically add step numbers, adjust colors, quickly add a title and captions, and apply an existing color theme to stay on brand with your organization. (This is not yet on Snagit Mac, but will be coming very soon)
Simplify Tool

  • Automatically create simplified versions of your captures that requires fewer updates over time, focuses your viewers’ attention to the most important part, and reduce your localization costs.
  • When the automatic method doesn’t give you the exact results you need, refine your simplified image with our specialized manual tools. Still enormously speeding up the process. Cutting a multi-hour project down to a few minutes.
Favorite Tool

  • Favorite your most used Quick Styles across tools. Keep your favorite tool styles a single click away. No more unnecessary tool switching.

Stamp Searching

  • Use search terms to quickly find and select the right stamp you need among the vast number of stamps that come with Snagit.
