Edit Images

Images are a great way to explain difficult concepts and express ideas. A simple graphic or diagram can do a lot to help identify and solve a problem.

YouTrack includes its own image editor. This feature lets you add illustrations and comments to an image. The image editor is a handy tool for communication and collaboration.

Open an Image in the Editor

You can open and annotate any image that is attached to an issue or comment. To open an image file in the editor, click the Edit icon on the image thumbnail.
