Sometimes, you may need more than a generic arrow or a stock smiley face stamp to spruce-up your documents. Fortunately, with iAnnotate PDF, you can create reusable custom stamps from your photos, images, and pencil annotations. Read on to learn more…
Photos and Images
To get started, tap on the Toolbox button on your iAnnotate toolbar, tap over to the Annotation Tools tab, and select the Stamp tool. You’ll then be able to tap the page location at which you want to place the stamp.
When the stamp library appears, select the “+” sign in the upper-right. You’ll be prompted to select a preexisting photo or image from your iPad’s photo library, or to take a new one with the iPad camera.
Hint: Images with transparent backgrounds overlay well on text!
You can also create a custom stamp from a pencil annotation you’ve already made on a document.
Tap any pencil annotation, and then select Stamp from the annotation ribbon that appears in the upper-right. You can then name the stamp and add it to your stamp library. Stamps (both ready-made and custom) are listed alphabetically in the stamp library.
You can make a stamp out of any pencil/ink annotation
Saving Frequently Used Stamps
Do you have a stamp you use all the time? Did you know you can create a custom tool on your toolbar that is preconfigured to use that specific stamp? Just click the wrench icon on the top of your toolbar and select “Stamp with a Specific Image” and drag and drop it on your toolbar. You’ll be prompted to select what stamp you want to associate with it and the new stamp icon in the toolbar will even include a small image to remind you of the stamp content. If you frequently use more than one stamp, make a tool for each one to make stamping even easier!
