How to mark up photos in the ServiceM8 app

A picture can be worth a thousand words. Marking up job photos can help you give clear and precise instructions when describing work requirements, communicating issues or findings, or quoting jobs.

The ability to mark up job photos directly is available on ServiceM8's iPad app, and supports use with Apple Pencil. Here's how it works:

Take a photo with the ServiceM8 camera, open it in the job Diary, and tap the Markup icon in the top-right

Mark up the photo!

The markup toolbar will appear on screen, which includes:

  • Three different pen types, with the ability to set a wide range of colours (tap once on a pen type to adjust its weight and transparency)
  • An eraser 
  • A lasso tool, enabling you to pick up and move other markups you've made
  • A ruler, enabling you to draw straight lines, at certain degrees
  • Undo & redo tools
  • An ability to minimise the markup toolbar, providing more space to draw

Once you're finished with your markups, tap 'Save'.

The edited photo will save as a separate, marked up version in the job Diary, with the original photo still available.

Photo markup is also available when a photo is taken while completing a Form through the Forms Add-on
