highlighting inside a picture


Is there any way that i can highlight regions inside graphical material? Maybe a specific Plugin?

E.g. I upload and attach a menu screenshot to a confluence site and want to draw a red circle around a button.

Since I want to reuse the image, for instance to mark up other parts in another chapter, it would be handy to upload only the clean screenshot and do all the highlighting via macros/online.

That's also a great tool and I think about integrating it. But it doesn't offer highlighting options though (like a red arrow etc.)

Or does it?

No, I don't think it does...

It's likely quicker and easier to just keep and original and Photoshop the highlight areas as appropriate.

If you can enable the html macro you might be able to do it all through css and js eg http://odyniec.net/projects/imgareaselect/

Use multiple images.

Confluence doesn't have any native image highlightling or annotating.

Using a plugin or some css code might work, then again it might screw up somewhere down the track on different browsers, versions, whatever.

By the time you've done that you might as well have pumped out the set of images and have a simple, robust solution! :]
