HI kriss ,with which program you add the arrows in the pictures?

GM Zach,

Open screen shot with MS Paint, not MS Paint3D! I just haven't spent enough time with Paint3D, but I do
know enough about the old Paint program!

1 Chose the proper pointing arrow
2 Choose if you want a transparent (default) or a 'filled in' arrow. 
3 Choose the two colors, Red and Black. First color is the arrow, second color is the fill if selected.
4 Click and drag on image to place an arrow.
5  You can always use the 'Undo' or 'Redo' buttons in upper left if you don't like what you see.
     Also, type of fill and colors can be changed as long as the object drawn is still highlighted with the dashed lines.
6 Click Text and draw a box and enter text, move box until text is exactly where you want and click.

Hard part is finding a color that has good contrast with the original image! LOL

FWIW, I use to create, view and edit my screenshots.

I start the program at windos startup and have assigned a key sequence (Ctrl + F11) to take a screenshot which is automatically saved in a designated folder with a date/time stamp.

Extremely usefull and above all easy to quickly take one or multiple screenshots while something interesting appears.

Also, IrfanView has a Paint dialog under the Edit menu (F12) which allow you to annotate picture files (with circles/arrows/text...).

I have eventually gone to preferring Paint3D, because arrows and text can be tilted in any direction.
