- For Your Industry
Here at Dozuki, we emphasize the importance of creating visual work instructions, because we believe visual is always better.
However, visual documentation doesn’t stop with photos. Sometimes, a photo needs a little help in order to be more informative. Just as well, bulleted instructions aren’t always a one-size-fits-all solution for delivering important information to your readers.
Over the years we've helped create visual documentation for tens of thousands of assembly procedures, SOPs, and training materials—and we created a few features specifically designed to help you make documentation more visual.
This simple tool lets you supplement your photos with additional information. Once your photos are in place, use the Dozuki markup system to highlight the location of any important items, such as the locations of specific screws or connectors.
Dozuki markups offer a versatile yet standardized way to identify or highlight information directly on a photo. Use markups to highlight or distinguish important aspects of your photos that aren’t evident on their own.
Don’t overuse it. Only add markups where it is necessary to point out information that is not otherwise obvious in the photo. In many cases, a well-composed photograph that is centered on the action won’t need any markup at all.
Use the markup colors in a consistent manner to increase standardization throughout your documents.
These unique bullet styles help call out information and alerts to your users within your written documentation.
Use a colored bullet to match the color of any corresponding markup(s) on the image. Special bullets include:
Use special bullet types sparingly. Constant use can overwhelm your readers, making the special bullets ineffective.
Don’t write the words “Caution,” “Note,” etc. when using special bullets. The special characters already alert the reader to pay extra attention.
