Drawing Tool

The Drawing Tool allows users to support their submissions with a digital image made online while posting content. Users can edit the image through various options like cropping, drawing, adjust lighting, etc.

In the Journal, Stepboard and Challenge modules you are able to add a Drawing Tool image to a Challenge, Stepboard or Journal object. When a member uses the Drawing Tool in one of these modules, the image that is attached will appear along with several tools and effects which they can use to customize the image.

Even if you don’t attach a Drawing Tool image in the admin section of your platform, Community Managers and Users will still be able to attach a digital drawing to a Forum topic, Forum comment, Journal entry, Stepboard Step or Challenge idea when the Drawing Tool is enabled.
