About this app

With ImageMeter, you can annotate your photos with length measurements, angles, areas, and text notes. That is much easier and self-explaining than drawing only a sketch. Take photos in buildings to plan construction work and insert the required measurements and notes directly into the picture. Organize and export the images directly on your phone or tablet.

ImageMeter has the broadest support for Bluetooth laser distance measurement devices. Most devices from various manufacturers are supported (see below for list of devices).

A special feature is that ImageMeter enables you to measure within the image once you calibrated it with a reference object of known size. With this feature, you can also easily measure the dimensions for places which are too difficult to reach or hard to measure for other reasons. ImageMeter can take care of all perspective foreshortening and can still compute the measurements correctly.

Features (Pro version):
- measure lengths, angles, circles, and arbitrarily shaped areas based on a single reference measure,
- Bluetooth connectivity to laser distance meters for measuring lengths, areas, and angles,
- metric and imperial units (decimal and fractional inches),
- add text notes,
- freehand drawing, draw basic geometric shapes,
- export to PDF, JPEG and PNG,
- adjust brightness, contrast and saturation for better readbility of your annotations,
- draw sketches on empty canvases,
- model-scale mode (show original sizes and scaled size for building models),
- show values in imperial and metric units simultaneously,
- context sensitive cursor snapping to draw quickly and accurately,
- fast and correct value input with autocompletion,
- measure the height of poles using two reference markings on the pole.

Features of Advanced Annotation Add-On:
- import PDF, measure drawings at scale,
- audio notes, picture-in-picture for detail images,
- draw measurement strings and cumulative strings,
- sort your images into subfolders with color codes.

Business version features:
- automatically upload your photos to your OneDrive, Google Drive, Dropbox, or Nextcloud account,
- access your photos from your desktop PC,
- backup and synchronize the images automatically between multiple devices,
- generate data tables of your measurements,
- export data tables for your spreadsheet program,
- add data tables into exported PDF.

I don't often rate apps, but this is just great. Trying to shoot reference photos to add dimensions to... I tried every app I could find. Went through all the free apps first, came back to this one last because it costed 5 bucks. But it is well worth it. It has settings like a PC program it can do anything. Totally customizable. Super easy to use. If I could lay back and describe the perfect dimensioning app, this is even better. Someone put a lot of thought into this one. Great purchase.

I really wanted this app to work and be awesome, but unfortunately, I was very disappointed. Inaccurate results, user interface isnt easy to get the hang of, and I never felt like I could get the little arrows positioned exactly right. But even if they were off a little bit, the measurements the app provided were wayyy off.

This is great, take a picture, mark the scale of a known item, even add perspective if needed, then measure anything based on that scale. Like, exactly what I was looking for. Upon using it a while, measurements next to each other horribly overlap, even if I change the unit from above, horizontal, within, just bad at placement. Removed some stars

There is an icon in the top right corner, which looks like this: (2->2). When enabled, you can move the measurements along the line so that they don't overlap anymore.

What's new

- fix image orientation when loading some detail images
- improve length of initial marker lines for dimension strings
- add option to hide measurements in exported images
