Markers are a wide variety of colored circles, rectangles, and lines used to draw attention to specific areas of your images. Markers are extremely useful for highlighting specific parts of an image and linking instructions to those parts. Select the Markers button to access the markup editor.

  • Select the Markers button to access the markup editor.

  • Select your markup shape in the tool section.

    • The general rule for shapes is to choose the shape that best matches what you are marking up. If you are marking up a screw, choose a circle. If you are marking up a microchip, choose a rectangle.

Select your markup color.
  • Select your markup color.

    • Choose red as the first markup color. If you mark up a different item in the photo use orange for that one. For the next item, use yellow, etc. Knowing that the first markup in a step will always be red, the second will be orange, and so on, keeps markups from getting confusing.

  • Additional shapes can be accessed by selecting the arrow to the right of the Tools section.

    • Use the arrow marker to convey direction, such as whether to screw a bolt in left or right. Gap markers can be used for anything from showing the gap between two objects to indicating where to measure. Line markers can be used for anything—even creating shapes!

  • Click the Crop button to adjust your image size.

  • Click and drag any of the four corners to crop the image.

    • If a page requires that an image be in a specific aspect ratio (almost always 4:3), then it will automatically keep the aspect ratio as such whilst you drag in the corners.

  • Click 'Save Changes to commit the change.
