How to Capture and Save Images Directly to SharePoint Using Snagit and OnePlaceMail – Part 1

Snagit is a great tool for capturing almost anything that appears on your computer screen, adding annotations or editing the capture and then saving the result.

In this article I’ll show you how to extend Snagit by using the powerful features of OnePlaceMail to save the Snagit capture to a location in SharePoint.

If you are not already using OnePlaceMail you can download the Express Edition (free for up to 25 users within a company) from http://www.scinaptic.com/download-express-edition.html

Procedure: Set up OnePlaceMail as a Snagit Output

This procedure will configure OnePlaceMail as a selectable Snagit output. This allows you to create Snagit captures, edit the resulting capture and then select OnePlaceMail as an output when you are ready to save the file to SharePoint.

1. Open Snagit Output Properties (right click system tray icon | Output | Properties…)
