ImageGear Features: Annotation

ImageGear has a variety of features and functionalities for all of our platforms. See what options are available in your preferred platform.


Discover Image Annotation Tools With the ImageGear SDK

Need an image annotation SDK that allows you to mark up your files? Give your users the ability to add, edit, and burn-in XML-based annotations. When you develop, you will define which annotation options you want to give your user.

ImageGear offers markup annotations including:

  • Text Notes
  • Redactions
  • Lines
  • Arrows
  • Rectangles
  • Ellipses
  • Highlights
  • Protractors
  • Rulers
  • And More


Great for Annotation

Build in Collaboration Workflows

Developers can build collaboration workflows that allow users to attach comments to images. As the comments are reviewed, users can burn-in annotations for permanent redaction of sensitive information.

What annotation tools come in the library? The Accusoft Redlining Toolkit™ (ARTX) component is a flexible and powerful annotation library. It provides a convenient way to add annotations, drawings, hyperlinks, and more to your images.

This feature works with WinForms, WPF, ASP.NET, MFC, or Windows GDI. It offers easy to implement UI elements with XML-based annotation for images and medical data.

GUI and API Annotations

Add ArtX annotations though the included GUI controls. User friendly controls allow users to add annotation elements with the click and drag of the mouse. Alternatively annotations can be programmatically added. Programmatically added annotations are useful for adding stamps across multiple pages of a document or other non-interactive applications.


Keep the Integrity of Your Original File

Developers can also rest assured that their users can merge annotations with other images or keep the annotations in a separate file. The separate file acts as an overlay to display the changes.

When your user decides to keep the annotations in a separate file, the original image is never directly altered.
