    Widget for Image Annotation

    Asked by richardkaplan on December 03, 2013 at 10:31 AM

    Hi - you helped me with a workaround to annotate an image in a form, but you indicated that it may be easiser to do this long-term when your widget feature is released.


    I see that you have now released the widgets (looks great!).  I do not see one at first pass which has image annotation - only a drawing tool which draws on a blank canvas.  


    How could I draw on a background image using widgets?

    Thanks - much appreciated

    My initial thoughts on the widgets is that this is an enormous change which basically opens up a new world to the definition of a "form."   It seems to me there are tremendous uses that will evolve as your users get time to think and create.. I will be pondering the possibilities indeed.

    That image annotating control seems ideal - how could it be used as a Widget?

    Sorry for the confusion. The last post wasn't mean for you. It was an ad posted by the other user which I have just removed.

    You will received an official updates from us here when this is added to Jotform.
