Please note that the image annotation tool is available to our beta testers only. We're expecting to release it to other users in the near future. If you have other questions please contact our support.
Image annotation tool is integrated into the File preview screen and can be used for all image attachments (.png, .jpg, .jpeg).
When you enter the File preview screen, the Edit button is located in the right upper corner (see the image below). After you click on the button the image annotation tool opens in the same modal window.
Structure of the screen is the same as the structure of the File preview screen, with the addition of the image editing toolbar that appears below the image preview.
The header contains image file name, Save&Close, Download and X buttons. In the body image preview and also the secondary image editing tools are displayed. Be advised that secondary tools only appear after you click on primary tools. Images are displayed in the following default size: 550 x 450 px. In case the original image is larger than the default size, it's scaled back down to the default size. Also if the image is too large to display, the vertical scrollbar appears.
Now you are able to edit your desired image. You can choose between several editing options such as crop, flip, rotate, draw, shape, text, etc (see the picture below).
When you are done with editing, annotating, doodling on the image, you can click Save&Close button (see the image below), which closes the Editing modal and you are returned to the Protocol step screen. The original image is overwritten with all modifications made in Editing mode, and the preview of the edited image starts generating. Be advised that the preview image is displayed without the need to refresh the screen and image resolution is not changed.
Important is to know, all edits to the image and the original image are flattened and stored as pixels. Any objects such as arrows, text, doodles added to the image are not stored as any type of special object. When you will edit this image next time, all the arrows, doodles, etc. will be presented as a part of the image and will be edited like any other part of the image.
