I know Snagit already has the ability to zoom into an area of a snag'd picture. Is it possible to add the ability to zoom to the side/above/below and point to the origins of the zoomed area and display the zoom away, not directly above.... Like the attached photo I found on the internet.

Additionally it would be nice to zoom out via a square and a circle starting point

That is one of the best suggestions I've seen here.

I've been suggesting that for a while now.

I have a small series of steps showing you kind of how to achieve this effect using SnagIt. While not as "clean" as something that might be built into the product, maybe it will be helpful.


Cheers... Rick :)

Hi and thanks for submitting your idea!

As outlined in our New Community Processes post, feature requests are open to voting up through the 1st of the month (this month is slightly different, due to the holidays) where we will then tally the votes and present the findings to our product teams. To ensure we have the most accurate data, on the 1st of the month we will be locking the threads that were listed in the Feature Request Round-up that was posted on the 15th. Once we have reviewed the submitted feature requests, our product team(s) may respond to the request, and if that is the case then that thread will then be unlocked for further discussion.

In the event that your idea is not selected for a response feel free to resubmit the idea and share it with your colleagues to garner as much exposure as possible!

Thank you again for your idea and we look forward to hearing more from you!
