Strange paste behavior after editing captured image

Just upgraded to Snagit 2018, and I'm seeing some weird behavior when editing captured images and pasting them into Outlook.  If I capture an image and don't edit it at all, then do Copy All and paste into Outlook, the image pastes at full size.  But if I edit the image before copying and pasting, sometimes the image appears in Outlook at a smaller size than the original; the Outlook Size and Position dialog shows that the image is at 100%, but it's clearly been shrunk.

Two observations:
  • This doesn't happen with all sorts of editing: if I use Spotlight and Magnify I see the smaller images, but if all I do is draw some arrows on my image, then it pastes at full size.  Haven't gone through every single tool/effect, but it appears that only some of them trigger the issue.
  • In Outlook, if I choose Paste Special and then choose Bitmap (instead of Device Independent Bitmap), then the image is pasted at full size.
Is this intentional behavior?
