Can an image file be annotated with DocViewer in Canvas Teacher?

Jump to solution

I am new to Canvas teacher, and I struggle to annotate images on Chrome with my iPad and pencil, since the whole images moved when I write. I want to have the pleasant experience of DocViewer annotations with images like I do with PDFs on the Teacher app. Maybe I’m missing something, or maybe my students are uploading a weird image file? They are JPEG images. I’d hate to ask them to convert all their image submissions to me to PDFs. Is there a way to have a student submit an image in the student app or from a computer, and allow me to annotate that image on Teacher?

Thanks!

Hi!

You're right. Currently, you are able to annotate on .jpg and .jpeg images in the browser, but not Canvas Teacher. I see you created https://community.canvaslms.com/ideas/12285-annotate-image-files-in-teacher-app?sr=search&searchId=2...‌! Like I said in a comment there, I'm glad you submitted the idea.

Thanks for bringing this up. After encountering this problem, I found instructions (https://www.howtogeek.com/209951/the-best-ways-to-scan-a-document-using-your-phone-or-tablet/) that helped my students scan all image files from their phones into PDF documents following a pretty easy process. It also improves the quality of the images.
