Cut-Out cropping


The ability to crop out the middle (horizontal and/or vertical) of a capture (see attached example), would be fabulous!

Thank you!

+1 the workaround I use is to obviscate but is there a way to drop a rectangle with matching background colour for example over the area?

I’m not sure if you meant to send this email to me or to the person in your greeting (Andrew). I had, quite a while ago, requested the cut-out feature in your forums. Are you needing further explanation from me on what I was requesting?

Thank you,

Re: Cut-Out cropping<>

I've found myself needing a feature like this more and more lately. Like Mike said above, I'd be content with a simple straight-line (horizontal or vertical) cut out. Although possibly useful, it doesn't need to be fancy with different effects/templates.

I am also looking for this feature. SnagIt has a few options where you can cut the middle of the page and allow it to have a “tearing” effect which is good to signify to the user that there is other stuff in the middle. Or a clean cut where it basically just takes out the middle part and stitches the top and bottom together.

Please add, only major SnagIt feature missing preventing migration over to Greenshot. Thanks!
