Is there anyway to round corners of an existing image? There should be a simple edge effect to ROUND CORNERS of an image. Why doesn't this one exist? I'm using an older version 8.2.0, but it doesn't seem like the new version has this option either. Sounds like a simple upgrade request. Please Help!

Hello,
You are correct.. we do not currently have an edge effect for a rounded rectangle.

However, you are able to achieve this effect in Snagit Editor using a little Shape magic and a mask stamp that you create.

You only need to create the mask once and it takes less than a minute.

I uploaded an image I created using the rounded rectangle mask. I think this is the sort of look you are attempting to achieve.

I have created a video to show you how I was able to create this look.

I hope this helps!

Thanks Kelly! Great Video. Do you have to have the latest release of Snagit to do what you describe in that video? My current version is 8.2.0.

Hi Steve, I'm afraid you need version 10 because Kelly is taking advantage of the transparency feature. You can download the 30 day trial and have both version 8 and 10 on your computer. Installing version 10 will not overwrite your prior version.

Thanks Kelly, your mask suggestioned worked perfectly. Plus opened the whole world of SnagIt 'masks' up to me. One to grow on!

This is a very difficult workaround. Why don't you simply update the product to include round corners -- as so many other photo editing software packages offer freely (most recently PicMonkey)?

With the Rounded Edges Input Shape being removed in the SnagIt 11 release, does anyone know how to make a clean screen capture with non-squared edges? I submitted a trouble ticket and received feedback that they could not recreate this feature using the selection tool (which is what was stated in the release notes). A rounded edged screen capture is a nice visual when used for graphics (particularly when this edge can be accentuated with a colored rounded edge line). Almost all Apple graphics have rounded edges for instance.

Hi! In Snagit Editor 11, I did not find any Image Effect to just add ROUND CORNERS to an image. Please implement this, as it is an often needed design feature!

I found the program "PhotoScape" which makes round corners instantaneously. It has also an unique feature called "Photo Frames" which adds a frame from a huge set of very nice frames. It would be nice if Snagit Editor could also support such frames!

I tried creating the rounded corner stamp you recommend, but it is very hard to create and scale rapidly. Uploading an image to http://www.picmonkey.com/ (for free), using the Rounded Corner feature, and saving it is still faster and better than trying to mess with your proposed solution.

Can you license this technology since it seems everyone else is adding filters to their online picture editing suite rapidly.

Thank you. Will.

Yes, I wish SnagIt had a round corners option. When saving a file in the editor it would not come up with a this annoying discard transparency pop window each time.

Kelly, or anybody else, how high is this on the Techsmith priority list?
(Or maybe it isn't at all)

Please add Round Corners as an edge effect ASAP!
It should be easy to implement, as this would work internally in the same way the other edge effects work.

Totally agree. This is one thing that I really miss in this otherwise brilliant software.
Souldn't be too difficult to implement this, or?

Really would love to see this added without requiring any work arounds or hacks.

Maybe in v.12 or 13 ?
I think this thread is 'dead', Techsmith replied two years ago, that's it folks.
Maybe they will add arrow/lines with corners as well.
And triangle selections
And a brush tool
And ....

:-)
