Add Text

Add comments to screenshots, provide instructions, and more. Our text toolset includes:

  • Fill, line, and font color: Choose from a wide range of colors to customize your text annotations and make them visually appealing.
  • Font type, style, and size: Select the perfect font that matches your preferred tone. Customize the text style, such as bold or italic, to emphasize important information, and adjust the font size to ensure readability.
  • Line height: Control the spacing between lines to optimize the legibility and overall appearance of your text annotations.
  • Text alignment: Align your text annotations to the left, right, or center to create more balanced and visually pleasing content.

Add Shapes & Arrows

Draw attention to helpful information or important content with a colorful circle or rectangle. 

Refer to specific details you want to be changed or signify the movement of sections with an arrow. 

Pro tip: After inserting an arrow, you can immediately start typing to add text!


Did you capture content that contains sensitive or personal information? Grab our redact tool and blur out and protect that sensitive information – anything on your screenshot can be blurred out (images, text, etc.), giving you peace of mind.
