Screenshot automatic annotation

Usually, the authors of a user's guide have to add comments to screenshots and highlight essential software details on them. With annotated screenshots, the user can understand the program and the functions behind the individual interface elements.

Dr.Explain makes it easy for you to create such annotated screenshots. Dr.Explain algorithms automatically highlight elements on the screen and create numbered annotations. All you have to do is to add descriptive text.

How to annotate images in Dr.Explain?

The editor toolbar has a separate section dedicated to image manipulation functions. In Dr.Explain, you can annotate an entire window or a single region of an application screen or a web page. In addition, the program can add an annotation to a picture or photo that is already on your computer.

After capturing the screen, the algorithms will mark the significant elements, and the annotation editor will open in front of you. There, you can change the image, reduce or increase its scale, as well as add additional or remove unnecessary "controls". Controls are shapes that mark essential elements of the screen.
Customize the appearance of the annotations and choose the style that matches the manual and product design. Add descriptions to interface elements.

Once the annotation is completed, you get an informative screenshot that describes the functions and features of the software in detail.

The ability to annotate screenshots will simplify the work of a technical writer who does not need to use third-party programs to describe the interface. Users will be more comfortable dealing with properly illustrated documentation.
