    "ToolName": "My Demo app", // name of the tool
    "Executable": "path\\to\\the\\DemoApp.exe",
    "Argument": "<file>", // file path to pass to the tool
    "Hotkeys": ["X", "Ctrl+E"], // press X or Ctrl+E to open/close the tool
    "IsIntegrated": true|false // true: if the tool supports 'ImageGlass.Tools'
  1. Save the file, and you're done!
