This is sort of a usability issue question about screen captures. If you
have no interest, stop reading now :-D


So here's my question: In screen capture, what do you use for screen
annotations (circles, squares, arrows, nothing, color, no color?) and
do you have any research or sources to back up your choices?

I will, of course, check the STC and other sources I have.

Feedback appreciated.



I'm interested in this myself. I do a ton of screen captures and wrestle
with this all the time.
