SnagIt for Mac is a real letdown... They charge $50 for an app that has 1/3 of the features as the Windows version has...
That's exactly what it means. It takes the overlaid layers and forms one solid image.
I have heard from someone else that using things like the "Blur Tool" can be reverse engineered...
If you really want, but unless you've got an image editor that can open the proprietary format (which is the only place the layers are actually preserved), you're not going to see them (if they're not flattened out).
Wait, so you are saying that if I blur out some text, and save it as a PNG - but I don't flatten it first - then I wouldn't see the blur effect?
I wouldn't worry about it. If you're that worried about it, then make sure you crop out the identifying portions. Or make sure the identifying portions aren't visible before using snagit.
I'm that worried about it.
I want to take an e-mail I received and put it up on my website, but I don't want my PERSONAL EMAIL to get displayed, or hacked some way!!!
Someone mentioned it might be better to use the "Cut Tool" in SnagIt so I remove the email and corresponding pixels. But, again, I fear that things could be reverse engineered...
(I'm really paranoid about Photos and Images, because I don't understand the technology well, and because they can contain hidden data like Malware, GPS Info, possibly Layers, and so on...)
BTW, would it be safer to do editing in something like GIMP or PhotoShop, which are probably more robust than SnagIt?
