Annotate Expert - New Release Available

Annotate 1.30 is now available for download. Now supports tethered shooting, annotation of PDF and TIFF files and user definable colors during export. Several of the new features target architects and civil engineering, construction site audits and similar.

Main new features include:


  • Support for PDF and TIFF files

  • Tethered shooting support

  • User customizable colors in Export tab

  • Fixes for Adobe Lightroom plugin issues

  • New setup and updater

  • Bugfixes for bugs reported by current users


The new version detects any older version installed and offers to remove it on first start. This may happen twice (after first two start ups) depending on which version previously was installed.

Tethered shooting
On Windows 7 and Windows Vista the tethered shooting does not require any additional packages to be installed and works "out of the box". On Windows XP it requires the “WIA 2.0” (Windows Image Acquisition) to be installed to work. The WIA redistributable package is offered to be installed on the fly as soon as you start tethered shooting on Windows XP for the first time. No matter which Windows version you are using, the camera must be in PTP mode.

Adobe PDF Support
PDF support requires GhostScript to be installed. The application provides step by step guide to install GhostScript in case you open a PDF file for the first time. Note: You may be required to run Annotate as Administrator on Windows 7/Vista when the GhostScript dll needs to be registered.

PDF documents version 1.4 and later can be opened in Annotate Expert. Earlier versions cannot be opened since they do not support the required XMP standard - which is used to store annotations into the file.
