A) Click a new photo or pick a photo from gallery.

- New photo taken through the app captures the date & time as well as
location information (if GPS is not enabled, user will be taken to settings). This feature is useful when user wants to take only photo and add the
PhotoWrite elements later on.

B) Photo can be rotated to the desired orientation.

C) PhotoWrite elements that can be written (with selectable font, color, thickness and through touch - position, scale, orientation) on the Photo:

1.Text, Signature - They can be added multiple times as needed
2.Date & time (picked or retrieved from the captured info when the new photo was taken)
3.Location address along with Latitude and Longitude data (picked or retrieved from the captured info when the new photo was taken)
- If GPS is not enabled, user will be taken to settings. If the address shown is wrong, user may cancel and try again.

Initially, PhotoWrite element is shown in a window where the text can be edited as required. Finally, the PhotoWrite element entered will be added to the photo at the top left corner. Drag the element and place it anywhere on the photo. You can also scale it up or down and rotate using Pinch actions.

Undo deletes the last added element on the Photo.

D)Share : Share the photo with others using available services (respective apps should have been installed) on your device such as
• Facebook
• Gmail
• Twitter
• Instagram
• Messaging
• Whatsapp
• Skype
• Picassa
• Google+
• Gpix
• Evernote
• Note Everything

E)Saving the photo: When a new photo is clicked the app saves the photo.

Photo is also saved automatically upon sharing the photo or prompted to save at the time of quitting the app, if PhotoWrite elements have been added.

App saves the photo in /sdcard/PhotoWrite directory with name format photowrite-DDMMMYY-HHMMSS.png. It also in /sdcard/PWClicked directory if the photo is clicked. Photo in PWClicked directory can be picked through
gallery to make many PhotoWrite outcomes as needed.
