Available for:
Start learning the "CountThings from Photos" app by drawing some X’s on a piece of paper and let the app do the counting for you.
You can count something else by changing the Counting Template.
1
Select Counting Template
The Counting Template tells the app what kind of items to count.
If the "Current Counting Template" does not match the items that you would like to count, tap "Change Counting Template" and get the appropriate Counting Template.
To Count the Xs select the "Xs on White Paper" Counting Template.
If you do not see the Counting Template, tap "Counting Template Store" to get the appropriate template to your device.
2
Take a photo
Tap to take the photo. The image needs to be taken from the same point-of-view (perspective) the Counting Template expects and all the items that need to be counted should be clearly visible.

Count
After taking the photo, you’ll be directed to the "Prepare" screen.
Tap "Count" to initiate counting.
To restrict counting to a specific area of the photo, tap "Count Area" to show the menu for defining the count area. Do this before you tap "Count".
If you do not need to define the area and you do not need to use any of the tools available in the "Prepare" screen, you have the option to change the settings to skip this section. Go to Settings->General Settings->Workflow turn off Show "Prepare" Screen.

Count From Another Photo
