Capturing screenshots, editing them ("annotating"), converting to a PNG, removing the background to make a transparent version, saving to google drive, creating large+med+sm sizes, uploading thumbnails, is an example of a workflow you could create. The list goes on... You'll find the same strength & depth in features for image handling also for text, videos, other files by type, and on and on.. See More
