    Edge effect are adjustable. You can also save them as a quick style if you want.

    Hi Joe ... picture's great - looks like my wife when I forget to put the dustbins out ... :)

    Thanks for the response - I'm OK with adjusting edge effects it's Cut Out Edges that I'd like to adjust and can't see how to adjust the spacing of the gap or the size of the teeth

    A one stop Cut Out looks like this  



    Working in the Editor and "playing" with multiple copies of the image - you can get the following - the edges aren't the same and the image is not exactly cut - but this took about 60 seconds to put together 


    Ideally - I would like the adjustable edge effect available for Cut Out

    Thanks

    Hey Andy how’s it going,

    I don’t think I have any dustbins around here but if I do I’m going to make sure that I put them out. I don’t want my wife coming around looking at me like that either. Ha ha. Although I might not complain much if she looked that good doing it.

    It would be nice if you could alter the settings for cutouts to taste. However, I’ve got a decent workaround if you’re interested in trying it. The image below is the end result.  You can even adjust the settings of the saved quick style after it’s applied.



    I threw together a quick video because I think it was the easiest way to demonstrate the technique. I’m not a huge fan of workarounds but sometimes that's all you've got to work with.

    That option appears to have disappeared in 13.1. Can you tell me how it is done now please?

    Yes, I would like to change the size of the cut out effect also (snag it 2018). Any chance of seeing this in the new feature?
    Thanks

    Hear, hear.  I would also like to be able to adjust the gap between the two halves of the image after cutting out.  I often have images where the cut out gap is not much smaller than the area I cut out.

    Theres a fairly simple workaround for that.
    If the canvas is set to Auto-Expand in settings.

    Make a rectangular selection of the section you want to move that cuts through the center of the cutout.


    Then drag or use the arrow keys to move the selection.Creating a larger gap.

    Very nice quick easy to follow video stephensterry853 thank you!

    I called Snagit support earlier today to ask how to close the huge gap between the two cut out sections. The agent had no solution, such as your workaround using the Edges Effects.

    I find it a huge over sight that the Cut Out tool properties don't allow you to select a desired spacing before hand and that it doesn't allow you to simply drag the sections together after the fact. A bonus would be to also allow you to adjust the size of the edges.

    I watched the movie and although it does the job, I don't have time for all of that.  It would be nice to just have a toggle to say how large a space between cut outs
