Introduction

This guide demonstrates ways to edit images within Dozuki's Media Manager platform.

  1. In the Step Editor (or Media Manager) to see the different editing options, click the Edit gear symbol in the lower-right corner of an image's thumbnail. A box will pop-up above the symbol giving you the option to:
    • In the Step Editor (or Media Manager) to see the different editing options, click the Edit gear symbol in the lower-right corner of an image's thumbnail.

    • A box will pop-up above the symbol giving you the option to:

    • View the image Full-Size.

    • Edit the images with Markers.

    • Crop the image.

    • Delete the image.

    • Copy the image to your Media Manager.

  2. Markers are a wide variety of colored circles, rectangles, and lines used to draw attention to specific areas of images. Markers are extremely useful for highlighting specific parts of an image and linking instructions to those parts. Select the Markers to access the markup editor.
    • Markers are a wide variety of colored circles, rectangles, and lines used to draw attention to specific areas of images. Markers are extremely useful for highlighting specific parts of an image and linking instructions to those parts.

    • Select the Markers to access the markup editor.

    • Select the markup shape in the Tool section.

    • The general rule for shapes is to choose the shape that best matches what you are marking up. If you are marking up a screw, choose a circle. If you are marking up a microchip, choose a rectangle.

  3. Select your markup color.
    • Select your markup color.

    • Choose red as the first markup color. If you need a second mark up in the photo, continue using colors in the spectrum order (ROYGBIV) and select Orange.

    • Following this order, for the next item you would select yellow, and so on.

    • Knowing that the first markup in a step will always be Red, the second will be Orange, and so on, keeps markups from getting confusing.

    • Additional shapes can be accessed by selecting the arrow to the right of the Tools section.

    • Arrow Markers can be used to convey direction, such as whether to screw a bolt in left or right.

    • Gap Markers can be used for showing the gap between two objects, or even to indicating where to measure.

    • Line Markers can be used for anything—even creating shapes!

    • Right Arrow Key: Move the marker slightly to the right.

    • Left Arrow Key: Move the marker slightly to the left.

    • Up Arrow Key: Move the marker slightly upwards.

    • Down Arrow Key: Move the marker slightly downwards.

    • Shift + Arrow Key: Increase the size of the marker in that direction.

    • "+" or "-" Key: Directionally decrease or increase the size of the marker from the center.

  4. Click Crop to adjust your image size. Click and drag any of the four corners to crop the image.
    • Click Crop to adjust your image size.

    • Click and drag any of the four corners to crop the image.

    • If a page requires that an image be in a specific aspect ratio (almost always 4:3), then it will automatically keep the aspect ratio as such whilst you drag in the corners.

    • Click Save Changes to commit the change.

How do I ROTATE pictures, once uploaded?

Hi Dominique,

To rotate images, you will need to do this prior to uploading the image to Dozuki. It is common to use PowerPoint or your computer’s native image preview software to make this edit.
