Edit Background

The Edit Background tool enables you to add a background image to your measurement.

The Edit Background tool can be used to show clients or colleagues a visualisation of the measured project relative to a photographed area as the measurement would then lay over the background.

To add a background to your measurement, follow the steps below:

  1. Tap on Edit in the bottom navigation bar to open the Edit Toolbar.

  2. Tap on Edit Background.

  3. Tap on Add Image located in the footer at the bottom.

  4. An Image Picker will be shown that enables you to select an image from your phone to use as the background. Once you select an image, it will be uploaded to the app and used as your background.

Once you have added an image to your background, you can edit the image. The following image editing tools are available:

  • Rotate (rotates the background image by +90° degrees). To rotate the image, tap on the rotate icon in the right upper toolbar.

  • Zoom (zooms the background image in/out). To zoom, pinch by moving your index finger and thumb up and down).
