Create & Share Snagit Themes

A key responsibility of content teams is to maintain consistency in style and to champion the brand of an organization. In this tutorial, learn how to create branded sets of quick styles to share with others.


Maintain a consistent look and feel with themes

Snagit themes makes it easy to create and share a set of custom tool styles, called quick styles, to create consistency in your images. Set the theme colors so that shapes, arrows, and text always match your brand guidelines.

To use Quick Style themes, select a drawing tool in the Snagit editor. Then, look to the properties panel to see the available quick styles. Click the drop down to choose a different theme.

Create your own theme

Keeping your images on-brand with your company colors is easy by using Themes in Snagit. 

Choose a drawing tool in Snagit Editor. Click New Theme in the Theme dropdown. For Mac users, click the gear icon in the properties panel then select New Theme in the dropdown.

Add a name for your theme then select the colors you want to include. To match an exact color on your screen, like from a brand guide, use the eyedropper tool. Click Create.

Export a theme for sharing

To share your theme with others, select the gear icon from the dropdown, then choose Export. Choose a destination for the file then click Save. 

Quick Style themes save as a .SNAGTHEME. When finished exporting, send the .SNAGTHEME file to your co-workers.
