What do you want to do with the unwanted screen parts. FWIW, you can
crop an image to include only part of the original capture and you can
adjust brightness, contrast, colour-depth etc.

I have version 6, which is well out of date, but I'd be surprised if
TechSmith dropped the image manipulation functionality in later
versions. Do you mean "for 32-bit Windows" by some chance?

I'd agree that SnagIt 6 help isn't the greatest in the world, but if
you search that help for "edit" you should find most of what you need.
If you can't find what you need in SnagIt, you can transfer the file
to something more capable - e.g. PaintShop Pro, Photoshop, PhotoPaint,
or The Gimp (the latter is Open Source) - that will do what you want.
