Get to Know: Photo Measures

Photo Annotation

Photo Measures is an innovative app that enables anyone from construction contractors to homeowners to record, save, and share measurements and dimensions—by directly annotating their own photos. Say sayonara to napkin sketches and illegible numbers, Photo Measures makes it easy to see and remember the exact measurements—any time, any place—no matter who took them. Never wonder, "Will this fit?" or "How much paint do we need?" again.

Key Benefits

Photo Measures is well-suited for:

  • Contractors
  • Construction Workers
  • Engineers
  • Homeowners
  • Real Estate Agents

With Photo Measures, you'll never have to wonder, "Will this fit?" or, "Do I have the right dimensions?" That's because your measurements will go wherever you do! Photo Measures successfully eliminates any unnecessary back-and-forth--and saves you time and sanity.

Record: Simply snap a photo of an object or room, or grab a pre-existing photo from your camera roll. Draw lines and angles with your fingertip (don't worry, Photo Measures ensures they're straight and accurate) and record your measurements using whatever form of measurement you prefer. While Photo Measures will not determine those measurements for you, it will determine angles. However, you may want to double check the accuracy of those angles--it works pretty well if you're facing the angle head-on, but pictures can skew perception. Change the line type and color, insert text boxes and comments, and record as much information as you need.

Save: Photos with recorded measurements are automatically categorized within the app. The default categories are Recent, Favorites, To-Do, Important Rooms, and Objects--but you can create as many categories as you need. Drag and drop photos into the desired category and access them anytime, any place. Lock photos to prevent unintentional changes, or save them to your photo library.

Share: Export your photos as a high resolution JPEG or PDF via email—so you can easily share your measurements with anyone in your contact list. And because Photo Measures automatically syncs with your Dropbox account, you can access your recorded measurements on any computer or tablet with Dropbox. Never leave home (or the job site) without your measurements again.

Runner Up

Photo Measures Lite: The free version of Photo Measures includes all the same amazing features as its $6.99 counterpart, but limits users to only two photos within the app and watermarks any exported photos via email or photo library.
