Tool to annotate pictures (screenshots) for documentation purposes? [closed]

Long time ago, I saw someone use a software (on Windows) that was specifically created to annotate pictures. It made it simple to add arrows, boxes, circles in "outstanding" colors to the image. Unfortunatly, I don't remember what program that was.

Have a look at Greenshot (GPL). It's the best Windows-Screenshot maker I've seen so far, including direct editing of the taken images.

Maybe Jing is what you're after:

Windows 7 includes a great utility for this purpose called "Problem Steps Recorder". It allows you to highlight certain parts of a screenshot and attach comments to them, and then exports them to a zipped MHT file.

"I used FastStone capture which was free but is now a shareware, and also Fireshot add-on for firefox, to take screenshots of my web apps and annotate it. Note that there's also a ""Pro"" version and a standalone software.

Otherwise, Screenpresso seems promising, and I'd give it a try."
