Is it possible to have multiple screenshots sent to a single PPT file. For example I take a screenshot and send it to PPT and it creates a new file. I want to then take another screenshot and add it into the existing PPT rather than create a new one. Any suggestions thank you

Yes, I've done this. Just watch when you click the PPT share icon as it can go to the same file OR launch a new one each time.

Great. Thank you. Do you know if this can also be done when using Profiles?

Meaning Snagit profiles to specify capture specs? I'd say yes. If you mean specifying that output as part of the profile I have no experience with that,.

Hi Artfuldodger,

You can setup a Profile that will send directly to a PowerPoint presentation. If you keep that PowerPoint open, each subsequent image will be sent to that same presentation. The directions I am providing are for Snagit 12, so please let me know if you are using an earlier version.

To setup a profile that sends to PowerPoint.

  1. Mouse over the Capture Window and click Manage Profiles.

  2. Select the profile you would like to use to take your capture or create a new one, and in the 'Share' dropdown select PowerPoint. Set any other desired settings here, too and then click Save.
  3. Make sure the PowerPoint you would like to send the screenshot to is open with the slide you want to add the screenshot to selected.

  4. Find and click the profile you set to send to PowerPoint by mousing over the Capture Window and looking in the My Profiles menu.

  5. Complete the screen capture, You may need to select Finish Profile in the menu if the profile is set to allow a preview or any editing in the Editor. Once you click Finish Profile, the image will be sent to the selected slide in  your open PowerPoint.

If you need anymore help, please let me know!

Have a great day!

Guy
