Where it all happens

The Snagit Editor is where you markup and edit images with arrows, text, callouts, and effects. At the top is the toolbar, which can be customized to display your preferred tools. The canvas displays the image or video currently selected. The recent captures tray, at the bottom, contains your most recent screenshots.

Select an image from the recent captures tray to display it on the canvas.

Auto-fill is auto-awesome

Choose the Selection tool and turn on auto-fill. Then, select and delete or move the selection. Snagit fills in the space with the surrounding color or gradient.
