Draw or edit images while adding and editing cards! How to Use To create a new image, click the button (A pen scribbling on a paper) on the toolbar. To edit an existing image, right click an image and click 'Edit Image'. After editing, click 'Save' to save the image. If you have the same image across multiple notes, check 'Replace All' to replace all of them with the new image. Otherwise, only the image on that one note is edited. If you are using Anki v2.1.50+, the image should not be selected when you right click on the image. Or the 'Edit Image' context menu will not show up.

Love this add-on. I use this add-on!!!! I see numerous ways to improve my study.
But whenever I type in Korean and re-edit the image later,
It gives me an error. (UnicodeDecodeError: 'cp949')
English works perfectly
I removed all other addons and tried it, but still doens't work.
Is there any way to fix the problem?

Dear Author, thank you for your super fast reply and fix!
It no longer gives the error message, but the language is broken and unreadable
Could you please take another look kindly..?

An essential add-on for me. The editor is user friendly and powerful.
Works great on 2.1.49.
Just one simple issue with character encoding, when you re-open an image you previously edited the characters with accents aren't recognized. It's not a big deal as you can simply put the accents back manually and it will work. Still an excellent add-on !

This add-on would be perfect if you could resize images with it (image resizer isn't compatible with 2.1.49). Still thumbs up since it does everything it claims to pretty well

Actually, you *can* resize images. Right after opening the image, you should see the width and height panel on the right side. Double click or drag to change its value.

This addon was working okay with a just one glitch relating to re-editing images containing accented letters (such as á, é, í..) until recently. Now when I save an edited image, it disappears, leaving a small image icon.

Very useful add-on! I make use of it every day.

Small suggestion: I always have to set fill color, stroke color, stroke width, font size for every image anew. It would be optimal if the addon would remember the last setting. or also suitable: If you could set the standard settings in the addons settings.

I love the addon, but recently when I try to save de the edited image the image just turns into an little icon, its actually hard to explain, but it is what it is, I save the edited image and after this it becomes an little icon on the card I was creating, this litteraly leave me with no condicions of using the addon and put mty work on

I think the add-on doesn’t work with ankiv2.1.45+ right now.

UPDATE(2021 Sep 10): Fixed in the latest update!

Great tool, I'd love to be able to save my settings on stroke size and stuff.

Amazing add-on, highly under-appreciated!

Thank you for this

is there any way to pre-set settings?

I have a lot of snips from pdfs of my textbooks. I would love the ability to quickly highlight some texts as I review cards. However, in order to highlight, I have to create a shape, change color, change opacity, etc so it takes a lot of extra time just for 1-2 highlights

Should be implemented in Anki
Must have add-on

A real time saver!

Great add-on, wish I knew about it sooner!

Amazing add-on. Couple suggestions:
1. It'd be nice if it remembers the previous settings (i.e. remember that I've changed the rectangle fill to transparent) instead of having to change every time.
2. Could you add an 'area highlight' tool?
3. A dedicated 'arrow' tool would be better than the shape library since the arrow shape tool looks ugly when stretched

This helps me a lot to fix or update images in cards quickly without an external tool. It also works great so far. Thank you!

great help

Nice work! Thanks for sharing.

Absolutely amazing. Is there a way set default shape properties? Right now I have to always manually change the stroke size when drawing boxes.
on 1600528572
Amazing addon. A suggestion would be if you could copy/screenshot and paste another image into the picture you're editing.

Exactly what I needed! Thanks!

Wow! Wonderful!
on 1595193187
Really really useful! Great idea

(I am having trouble using the "arrow" function. Also, I think it would be useful if you could edit the parameters on the right by typing e.g. after a double click and, while using the lens, if you could zoom-in with left-click and zoom-out with right click)

Thank you for your extremely useful contributions!
