How to add images for your moments

In this post you will find some cool tips how to add images to your moments. Images help you highlight and communicate significant moments very effectively. Viewers can quickly get a gist just by looking at the picture and quickly connect with the moment. When you share a moment with image on social media, your followers will see this image which is relevant to the moment (unlike the default image for the video).

You need a screen capture tool. Many screen capture tools area available for free - such as . Here we have given example with Skitch by Evernote, which can be downloaded from (Disclaimer: This is not endorsement or recommendation for any product, it is simply for illustration purpose here).

Now follow a few simple steps to capture and add images for your moments:
  1. Start the video that you are tagging, insert moment(s)
  2. Start Skitch. Take the video to the point from which you want to capture the screenshot
  3. Switch to Skitch and click "Screen Snap". The focus will move to the browser where you were adding DrawTyme moments to your video

  4. You will see the cross. Click the left top of the area that you wish to select. Keep left mouse pressed and drag mouse to cover the entire area that should be captured. When mouse is released, this area is copied to Skitch
  5. In Skitch, click "Crop" button. Adjust four corners of the rectangle to select the required part of the image. Once done, click "Apply"

  6. From the Skitch Menu, select appropriate option to save image locally on the computer
  7. From DrawTyme Moments tab on the browser, click the "Insert Image" button. Insert the newly created image and click "Upload". Your moment with image is ready.

 Below is a video that would guide you through the steps.

DrawTyme Lauches Apps - Learn Yoga from 'Yoga Guru'

We are glad to announce launch of our first app, where we have taken the technology behind navigable videos to mobile app.

Yoga Guru App on Google Play
Yoga Guru  - Collection of some of the most popular Yoga videos taught by some of the well known and qualified Yoga teachers from the world. You can learn Yoga with these videos - for general fitness as well as for specific purpose, such as for weight reduction, back pain relief, office yoga, stress relief etc.

This app is created using DrawTyme APIs that allow viewers to bookmark their own moments. In such self-learning videos, viewers often have a strong need to create their own bookmarks for future reference and for sharing. We have made it possible which was not available due to lack of convenient tools on mobile.

All the DrawTyme functionality - such as creating bookmarks, navigating through the significant moments, sharing the interesting moments and sharing the video parts selectively - are all now available on mobile devices.  Given that viewers often want to share only small clips while watching a big video, now they can do so without searching for such small clip without worrying about physically cutting a smaller video. 

We encourage you to download and install this app on your android device from Google Play Store. Whether you are regular yoga practitioner or wannabe yoga student, this app will be very useful to you. Please share any interesting moment from these videos on your social media and influence your circle to take up Yoga!

We are keen to hear your feedback, and are always looking to include your suggestions. Your feedback will indeed help us create an awesome experience for all video viewers.
