We saw some brilliant tools for Mac to markup, annotate images and PDF files. They’re also useful to type and highlight texts, edit files and share them via email, social media, SMS etc.

Now we’re going to show you how to quickly annotate a PDF file or image on Mac.

Mac has inbuilt tools for doing the job. You can preview most of the files on Mac OS using Quick Look. Click the desired file and press spacebar on the keyboard to open it in preview mode. Alternatively, you can see preview in this way too- Choose File > Quick Look.

Click View from the menu bar and choose Show Annotations Toolbar option.
