As add-ons are programs downloaded from the internet, they are potentially malicious. You should only download add-ons you trust.

This add-on previously supported Anki 2.0. You can download the last version supporting 2.0 here. As Anki 2.0 has been discontinued, no support is available for this version.

Thanks for your development!
I am a chinese anki fans, and download your add-on recently.
Some errors happen. Here is the feedback from anki:


Traceback (most recent call last):

self._addButton("mybutton", lambda s=self: button_pressed(self),

Here is some information may help you find the problem:
1.the way I use the add-on:
I review a card and I click edit button then choose an image that I want to edit by clicking the button "Edit Images".but some errors happen.
2.my running environment:
anki 2.0.47
3. I choose the default mode: open_command = "", and I can open an image by double click an image and the execute softer is window' own.
4. I also try to use PaintDotNet.exe , but still call errors.

I really need an add-on to provide the function to edit images while reviewing.
hope you can help me!

Really good ! It would be even cooler to be able do edit the image by right-cliking on it during review.
