[No Target Defined] > [No Target Defined] > Annotations > Annotation API: ART

The ImageGear ART component includes low-level functions for fine-tune image annotating and high-level functions for the most typical operations.

If you have an application that can read, display, and print images, with ART component attached you can add marking capabilities, such as arrows, highlighting, and sticky notes to documents images, and use them as though you were working on printed sheets of paper. Some of the marks, such as the Ruler and Protractor, are especially useful when combined with DICOM images.
