Whether you get feedback on images of your website designs or design illustrations, or you need to review PDF files like logos or brochures before printing, Pastel is here to help.

To get feedback directly on PDFs, animated GIFs or PNG and JPG images, create a canvas by using the "Upload images or a PDF" button in your dashboard to create a canvas in Pastel. Then just send that canvas link to your clients and all they need to do is click to leave a comment anywhere on the files you've uploaded.

Updating PDF and image canvases

On image canvases (PNGs and JPGs), you have the option to upload more image files to your canvas or update existing ones if you've made changes according to feedback. Just replace that image using the ··· button when hovering over an image in the right-hand sidebar, and all comments that were previously made will be kept pinned in place.

You can also update an entire PDF in a canvas by clicking "Update PDF" on the bottom right of a PDF canvas. This will replace the entire PDF and retain all comments made on the corresponding pages.

Show/Hide Pins

For both PDF or image files, comments in the sidebar are based on an absolute position on the page rather than tied to specific content or elements on said page.

Use the show/hide pins located on the bottom left-hand side of your canvas to keep comments pinned on the page, or hide them when you’d like to view your file without feedback overlaying it. You can also use the zoom controls on the bottom left to get a better view of what you're giving feedback on.

You can search and filter comments, as well as export them to your favorite project management tool. Read more about exporting here.

To create a PDF or image canvas, just head on over to your dashboard and start getting better feedback.
