Markup Hero is a powerful, free application to take & share screenshots as well as annotate images, PDFs & websites. Add text, arrows, lines, rectangles, circles, drawings, highlights, images and more. Images and PDFs can be uploaded via our website or directly from our desktop screenshot app, Chrome extension, Google Drive integration or even Slack. Markup and annotations are layered on top so they can be edited and merged into images for sharing and embedding.
