Marking up Digital Images

You don't need a grease pencil to mark up your digital images. If your photograph was taken with a digital camera or already has been scanned, you can use Photoshop's layers and annotation features to mark up your image. Press N to select the Annotation tool in the Toolbar, click in an area you'd like to comment about, and type your comments. You can collapse a comment down to a sticky-note icon when you don't need to view it. Choose different color notes for the various meddlers working with the photo. Should your instructions be really complicated, Photoshop includes an audio annotation feature. If you need to "draw" directly on the image, say, to mark cropping, create a new empty layer and draw on that. Make the layer invisible when you no longer need to view the instructions on the comment layer. Figure 4.7 shows a typical marked up digital image.
