I'm new to Snagit, new to Mac and new Apple Mail. [25 year PC user] I'm getting there on my Mac. I'm using Snagit 4.1.4.Regularly I need to get a partial screen shot and include that in my description of an issue via Apple Mail.
But when I paste the Snagit image from the clip board, into my apple mail, it's pretty small. When people receive my mail they find the pic not to useful.
As I understand it, Mail presents the pasted pic at original size.
Two pic below
That being the case:
- How can I solve this problem?
- Can I capture at larger file sizes???
- If I do this, will this display in Mail larger?

If you see this at the top right of your email message ,be sure it says "Actual size"

Note this only appears for me if I paste in a larger picture.

Another option is in snagit, choose Edit Menu->Resize Image->enter 200%, then copy from snagit and paste into Apple Mail.

Wow, I just tested the 'Actual size' option in Mail. It works great! Thanks Jack. Appreciate your quick help :-)
