I am using SnagIt to copy images, but when I paste in Gmail the image does not show. What to do?

I tried this solution described here: http://www.itcentralpoint.com/fix-snagit-correctly-paste-images-gmail but it doesn't help. It is for previous versions of Snagit, and now it is not working any more.

I see that it is impossible to copy images from SnagIt when they have a transparent background. It happens in some effects (for example drop shadow).

To fix it go to editor settings, in the file menu:


Then disable image transparency:

It solved the issue for me.
