One can make highlights with two different shapes: Either round (circular/elipisis) or rectangular. But the rectangular highlight has perpendicular corners, which gives them a tough look. If the corners wouldn't be "that perpendicular" the look would be much smoother.

i think this can be done, let me look into it - seems like a good idea to me.
if you add an entry in the bugtracker (see button at top of page) it would help me out to keep me from forgetting.

Hmm - don't see the "bug tracker" link anywhere on the site, so doing a +1 via the forums.

I also came up with a nice workaround, which requires Microsoft Word. Word can do vector based "AutoShapes" with rounded corners, plus gradient fills, which can then be pasted into the ScreenShot Captor editor.

See the attached document (embedded in a ZIP) for some examples. I've got red, yellow, green and blue in various sizes.

On a related note, it seems the ClipArt function doesn't handle vector based image formats :( It does handle .png with alpha channel though, so you can do a reasonable job of it that way

Enjoy,
Shawn
