Project Idea: Annotate Screenshots, Easy Instructions

As part of my IT job, I sometimes have to put together instructions for how to install or use a program.  Would be nice to automate this.  The hardest part of the whole thing is taking the screenshots and integrating them into a document.  The more visual the instructions are, and the less words, the generally more effective they are.

I’m thinking of a webapp where you could import screenshots, and then easily mark up the screen shots with instructions.  Draw a box around the ‘OK’ button in a screenshot, and enter ‘Click this’ and an arrow with the text is automatically painted on the screenshot.

It would also be cool if you could customize certain fields based on a query string.  So if I am sending instructions to user ‘szissou’, the user field in the screenshot is automatically filled in with szissou.

    Let’s say this from madden fan to madden fan. I’d like to mention that I wasted
    a heck of a lot more time than I usually like to admit watching nfl and playing literally anything madden related, I’m not feeling bad about
    it or anything. I think its odd how a simple idea attracts millions of players
    into one single crowd. My 7 year old son seems to enjoy
    it aswell! That’s why I love this community! Go Seattle Seahawks!
