Tagging as you capture

I'm new to Snagit 12 and loving it. Wow, I'm now collecting 3 x the screen shots I used to, while still on the trial version. I keep the editor window open to look back on snapshots or add notes on the images.

However there is one feature that would super super charge my experience and totally convince me to buy it!

When I take the screen shot I need a box next to the camera & video icons that I can type in a tag or two. This would mean I'm almost automatically filing every image as I go. (The alternative is to go to the editor, switch to library & add tags; which I just don't get around to doing!)

Evernote promised to make my life easier, but I just didn't get around to it either! I need super easy tagging.

[The other bit I'm a bit confused about is how to get multiple images out of Snagit. For example, I've collected 10-20 images for each of 5 tags (80 images). I want to put them in folders on my PC or cloud drive. I can select them in the library, but how do I export / save multiple images? I've only found single image saving or uploading, so far.]

Hi Paul
By way of a suggestion for your requirement to bulk export images from the library.  There are two ways that you can approach this both of which require that you identify the images that you ant to export.

Assuming that you have 10 images with a tag of ABC-123 - from the library screen - select the tag ABC-123 from the Tags list on the left navigation menu.  This should provide you with thumbs (or a list) of the files that you have tagged.

From here
Option 1 - if you can use Snag files you can copy and paste ALL of the files - upside files have moved where you want them - downside they are Snag format with internal file names

Option 2 - select all files - then Right Click - here you will see the Batch Conversion Option
This option will allow you to save all of the selected files to a specific folder - however, it will also allow you various other options including, Image Type, Image Size,  File Name (sequential names based on your tag e.g. ABC-123-01, ABC-123-02 etc.)

I'll leave you to play with the options - but I find this invaluable as I hope you will.

One other minor point here - if you select a single file from the Library and then use right click <Save As> this will also allow you to set the image attributes of the saved file,

Hope this helps
