Using Photos in ArcSite


ArcSite has 2 different photo tools. Background photos and Embedded Location-Based Photos.
Using embedded location based site photos in ArcSite allows you to easily capture on-site details, set expectations with customers and installers, and seamlessly document photo locations. With the photo tool, you can snap photos and easily mark them up, directly in the app. 
Using the background photo tool, you can easily add a photo directly to the canvas where you can draw/markup the photo on the screen. This tool is great for blueprints, existing plans, or Google Earth images that you'd like to draw over top of.

  1. Tap the Camera icon on the lower right-hand side of the canvas

Once the image has been added you can:

  1. Delete photo(s)

  3. Adjust the placement and direction of the icon on the canvas
