How to add a photo?
Please drag and drop the "Photo" object to the canvas. You may add multiple photos and PDF files to be annotated on the same canvas.
Please note Orion Markup does not open the image file directly (your original image remains unchanged). Here is why we designed it this way:
When editing the image directly, all your changes are static one time changes, this means you will not be able to reopen the annotations and edit changes. Orion Markup saves the file in its own "editable" format, this allows you to reopen the annotated file at any time, make changes and export the newly updated version.
