Hi! How do you add your own image without videoscribe converting it to a line drawing?
I've got the exact same problem here. As soon as I try to import a PNG, VideoScribe proposes me different ways to draw the lines. There is no way to ask "bring it as it is"n without drawing. You can do it afterwards in the image properties but the quality is already lowered by the first "line drawing" operation.
Is there a way to avoid that ?
You can set the animation time to zero if you want the image to
appear instantly instead of being drawn.
You can use "move in" instead of draw to animate the image, and you can change the hand to "no hand" if you want something to move in without a hand.
(Request to Sparkol: Version 1 provided the option to change the quality/size setting for each image individually at the time of import (in addition to the global default setting). Please bring that option back or explain if that feature still exists in some new form)

Thanks for your suggestions but I would love to bring in an image in its original quality without it being redrawn. Is there any way to do this?
-Choose the lower middle option
-set the draw time to zero for them to appear
-choose 'move in' to move the image in from off screen
If you're thinking of something else, please explain! :)
What I want to know is this (and I think this is what other users like Amy are asking)
When I try to import a non-line-drawing image, like a jpg or a png, into Videoscribe from my computer, I cannot do it without Videoscribe converting the image to a line drawing, thereby rendering the graphic UNUSABLE.
Previously, I could import any kind of image without this happening. It's really annoying. Can you help?

To increase the size/quality of imported images in version 2.0.1, close all scribes and click the gear/cog icon in the lower right corner. Then adjust the bottom value: "default image quality" from 400 to a higher number."

I think you are using the bottom right option when you are importing your jpg file - this option does do that.
If you try the bottom middle option you will not get the background.
It would be helpful if you would put an indicator on the image above that shows us what you mean by the "bottom middle". Thanks.
I have never had a software frustrate me so much, in so little time.
Having a 4 hour video to listen to, to find a 4 second reference to a setting that's obscure, is not how to make customers happy. Long videos are great for product overviews but need to be short and to the point when used for tutorials. Direct questions need direct answers.
You continually hide settings in obscure locations, rather that placing them in the . . . i don't know, "Settings" area. The moment a software brings in an image, it should either make the decision for you or give you the option. I.e. if it's not an SVG, bring it in automatically as a JPG etc, using the "bottom middle" choice. Companies want to use their logos and photos without having them destroyed on impact.
The check box for zooming the animation should not be while the video is playing, because users spend hours looking for the check box in the menu, settings area, and on the software interface.
If you insist on keeping these items intact in their current locations, then there should be multiple opportunities/locations for the customer to perform those features.
