Image Tools

Version 3.6.3 adds new feature: “Image Tools”. It is under the “Tools” node in the project tree view.

For now it contains only one tool: “Move Images To The Library”. This tool allows you to move all embedded topic images to the image library, optionally converting them to the desired format (PNG recommended).

Later we will add more tools like “Resize images”, “Unclone” and more.

How to Add Annotations to Screenshots

Helpinator’s Image Library allows you to add various shapes with text and arrows to your screenshots, making it easy to describe program UI. To enable it, first select image in the tree view, then select “Tools->Activate Shape Editor”. Then you should select style for the shapes, default is “Red and Yellow”, meaning red lines and arrows with yellow background. You can read more on how to create styles.
