I think people would find it useful if there were use case stamps.
If you are not familiar with use cases, they are frequently used in software design.
They are discussed at http://www.andrew.cmu.edu/course/90-7....
Here are some simple examples.

Alex,

This is an interesting idea. If the users of these images is a narrow interest group, I imagine these might not be added into the general stamps TechSmith provides.

However you can make your own custom stamps and keep them in custom folder in Snagit. Once your custom stamp collection is complete, you can share with others.

Have you tried to make you own custom stamps?

Actually, I think you might be surprised how often they are used.
I work in IT support and I see a lot of potential for IT Help Desk, DBAs and developers using Snagit.

I did a search on Google for "use case diagrams" and got over 6 million hits.

There are very few symbols in use case diagrams.
The web page http://www.edrawsoft.com/uml-usecase.php shows only nine.

"Who Need Use UML Use Case Diagram
•Software developers: Represent software applications using the Unified Modeling Language (UML) notation.
•Software developers: Illustrate and interpret software application relationships, actions, and connections.
•Program managers: Show high-level static software structures in presentations and specification documentation."

As far as creating my own stamps, I haven't.
