With the release of Snagit 4.1, there's a better way to share your styles across your organization!
Please see the tutorial on Quick Style Themes to learn more.
Maintaining consistency in the look and feel of your website, documentation, social media, and sales communications can help to
Build a .snagproj file to share your custom styles with others. The .snagproj file automatically shares the Quick Style properties, saving you the time it would take to document and set up the properties on another computer. The .snagproj file format saves the current state of an image and allows for vector-based objects on the canvas to be edited at a later time.
Note: The .snagproj file format is only supported on Snagit Mac. To create and share these Quick Styles on Snagit Windows, see the tutorial.
After creating a .snagproj file with the custom styles and labels for your organization, share these styles with your coworkers. Send the .snagproj file with the following instructions:
The new style appears in the Quick Styles. Continue this process until you have added all of the desired styles.
Note: To export only the styles, select Snagit > Export Styles. Select the styles to export and click Export Selected button or click the Export All button. Double-click the exported file to export the shared styles into the Quick Styles.
Here are some tips and a sample style guide to help you get started creating your own Quick Styles to match your company’s style guide.
When using a callout to draw attention, make sure to select colors that stand out from the background or interface. One callout style may not accommodate all images. Make sure to include alternative styles based on the purpose for the images. For example, consider creating separate styles for callouts used on light backgrounds and on dark backgrounds.
Make sure to use a consistent font type across the styles. Establish standard fonts to use for body text, callout text, and for headings throughout your content.
Set up different line and end styles based on what you are trying to convey. For example:
Set up shapes with the approved brand colors or complementary colors for coworkers to build charts, infographics, presentations, or other resources.
Customize the step color to ensure the labels stand out or compliment the colors in the image. Add these labels for diagrams, documentation, presentations, and tests.
If you did not capture the cursor with the original image, you can use Stamps to add the standard cursor at a later time. Include acceptable cursors to use for each platform.
Use the Eyedropper tool to match a color in a logo, image, or on the screen:
You can also enter a HEX or RGB color value into the field in the Color options.
In the .snagproj file, add text to help label how each style should be used. You may also want to include the RGB value or HEX value for the colors used.
