Save Source Images for Future Editing
Save images to the SNAGPROJ file format when you may need to incorporate feedback, make revisions, or update an image at a later time.
The SNAGPROJ file format saves the current state of an image and allows for editing of any vector-based objects on the canvas such as text, callouts, stamps, shapes, and pasted captures.
The SNAGPROJ file format can only be opened in Snagit on Mac.
Save an Image as a SNAGPROJ File
- In Snagit Editor, select File > Save As.
- In the Format dropdown, select SNAGPROJ - Snagit Project File Type.
- Click Save.
About Vector Graphics
The SNAGPROJ file format maintains the state vector-based objects. If a capture or image containing vector objects is saved as a format other than a SNAGPROJ file, the vector objects are flattened and made a permanent part of the image. Once flattened, the vector objects cannot be changed or separated from the image.
Flatten Objects on the Canvas
When you flatten a vector object on the canvas, it becomes a permanent part of the image and cannot be edited. To flatten:
- Right-click on the object on the canvas and select Flatten or press Command-Shift-T.
- Right-click on the object on the canvas and select Flatten All or press Control-Shift-T.
