    What software do tutorials use to mark up images?


    I'm looking for image software to add text, arrows, boxes, etc. to images. What's do you like?

    All screenshots in all my posts and tutorials have been made and annotated with Screenpresso: Screenpresso: The Ultimate Screen Capture Tool for Windows

    Will try it. Thanks.

    Hmm. Tried it. Apparently can't annotate an existing image. Tried "Add A Textbox" and "Add Text in a Bubble"; both could be wrestled into a red outline with transparent center but darned if I can find how to actually put text in them. Program is glitchy and sensitive. I know you use it and like it and I've seen your results but I'm still looking.

    Forgot to mention that I am using the free version. The paid for version has more features but I've not had any issues to get my screenshots made and annotated exactly as I prefer with the free version.

    Depending on what you want to do, Windows' Paint is pretty good...

    Just right click an image and open with Paint.

    OK, it sorta works. I'll use it 'til I find something a bit more slick. Thanks for the tip.

    But I don't want to print screen. I want to annotate existing images. Ok, I could enlarge an image and then print screen and then annotate and . . . .

    But I did find one that works: Skitch. It's minimal but enough for my needs.

    Downloaded Greenshot & installed. Tried to edit an image, jpg (6.50 MPixels). Edit screen only has one size, no zoom -- or did I miss that? So a majority of the image is off screen. Anyway, much as I'd like to use it, it doesn't seem useful in my case. Help (internet based) is silent on zoom.
