Snagit automatically saves unsaved capture as a SNAG file (Snagit capture file) in DataStore folder, here is the full path to it : C:\Users\username\AppData\Local\TechSmith\Snagit\DataStore. The advantage with .SNAG file format -you can only open this file in Snagit Editor on Windows -is it keeps vector-based objects such as callouts, stamps … and allows to edit them at any time.
Not the case when you save the capture or image containing vector-objects in other formats, then they will be flattened and can’t be separated from the image.
