Snagit (Windows): Yellow Tint in Captures from f.lux

Problem

There is a yellow tint on my image when I take a capture. How do I remove this?

Solution

The likely cause of this problem is from f.lux, a program that adjusts a display's color temperature according to the time of day and location. When taking a capture with the display temperature dimmed, it will display a yellow tint in the capture. The best workaround is to disable all components from f.lux. Please follow the steps below:

  1. Open f.lux.
  2. Click the hamburger menu in the top-left corner of the screen.

  3. Select Disable > when using Snagit Editor.

    Disabling one action may not be enough to remove the tint entirely. If this continues to occur, also select one or all of the following:

    • for fullscreen apps
    • for Generic PnP Monitor

    If there are multiple monitors in use, please select all the monitors listed in the options list.
