I want to add sequential numbers through a keyboard shortcut to a single image. Ultimate goal is to use a single key on the keyboard and hover over an object in an image with the mouse, everytime I press the key, a number drops on the image sequentially.

Where would you want this number to end up? Metadata? Filename? Can you explain a bit more about the purpose of this sequence number?

I would like the numbers to show up as an overlay to the image. I am looking to quickly number different areas of an image sequentially.

Sounds like you want to write a script.  What you're describing is not something that the application natively does.

Thanks,
