What is an SNAGX file?

A SNAGX file is an image created by Snagit 2022 or a later version. It contains an image captured from a user's computer screen, and it may also include text, vector graphics, and other annotations added to that image. SNAGX files store annotations as "unflattened" objects, meaning you can continue to move and edit them in Snagit.

TechSmith Snagit is a screen capture and image annotation program that technical writers and others use to take and annotate screenshots. For example, a technical writer documenting how to use a software program can take a screenshot of that program using Snagit and then add instructional text, shapes, and other annotations to the screenshot.

If a user wants to continue editing a screenshot's annotations in the future, they can save the screenshot as a SNAGX file. The SNAGX format preserves Snagit annotations as editable objects. Users can also save screenshots as .PNG, .JPG, .TIFF, .GIF, .BMP, or .PDF files, but those formats do not preserve annotations as editable objects.

NOTE: Prior to Snagit 2022, Snagit for Mac saved editable captures in the .SNAGPROJ format, and Snagit for Windows saved editable captures in the .SNAG format. As of Snagit 2022, both platforms' versions of Snagit save editable captures as SNAGX files.

How to open an SNAGX file

You can open a SNAGX file in TechSmith Snagit (Windows, Mac). To do so, select File → Open... from the program's menu bar. Then, navigate to and open your SNAGX file.
