Image Annotation

Images can be imported directly as a stamp without having to create and save the stamp. Any of the supported image formats (*png, *jpg, *jpeg, *jpe, *gif, *tif & *tiff.) can be used.

Note: When importing an image directly as a stamp the image will be converted to a JPEG and inserted as is.

Creating an Image Annotation

  1. Select the Image tool by clicking the on the toolbar, going to Comments > Multimedia > Image, or using the shortcut key Ctrl + Shift + I (Command + Shift + I on Mac)
  2. Click on the page where you would like to add the image annotation.

To create an image stamp that can be reused instead of an "on-the-fly" stamp, create a custom image stamp.
