LaTeX Overlay Generator (Demo)
Source code on GitHub

It creates the whole source code needed to create annotated figures as shown on the right directly in LaTeX without modifying the underlying image file. You can also use the tool to embed any text on top of your figure (e.g., use \cite commands on top of an image). Give it a try! 🙂
