How to add annotations to images

Learn how to add annotations to images using the mobile app.

Why add annotation to images? 

Annotations in an image help in clearly indicating specific areas or features of interest within an image. Drawing lines or circles and adding text to an image allows users to highlight and communicate specific aspects that may require attention or explanation, making it easier for other colleagues to understand the context in which the image was taken.

Take note 

  • For the best experience, we recommend annotating via the mobile app using your device's touch screen. 
  • It is currently available only in Image Input questions and on pictures in a form template.
