 Add Markup and Annotations

The HelpStudio Image Map Editor is a unique tool dedicated to the task of adding annotation and effects (mosaic, gray scale, color wash) to screen shots.

A Image Map file consists of a set of regions, each applying markup (e.g. a text or line bullet, label) or an effect (gray scale, mosaic, color wash). Once a map has been defined, simply click the build button to create a marked up version of the original screen shot. Optionally create a thumbnail and a set of bullet images too.

The Map File is saved independently of the original screen shot so the marked up image can be easily rebuilt if the screen shot changes.
