First introduced with iOS 9, the Markup feature lets users annotate email attachments using a suite of tools. And iOS 10 brings this feature to the Photos app for iPhone, iPad and iPod touch, letting you annotate your photo. You can write, draw, and markup on any photo stored on your device so that you can highlight or emphasize something on the photo. This tutorial will show you how to use Markup in Photos on iPhone/iPad. Take a look.
Steps to use Markup in Photos on iPhone/iPad
Step 1: First off, you are supposed to launch the Photos app on your iOS device.
Step 2: Once you are in, you need to find the picture you want to markup, draw or write onto.
Step 3: Next, tap the photo again to bring up the toolbars, and then tap the edit icon (three lines with three dots) located in the upper right corner.
Step 4: Next up, tap the Extensions button (three dots inside a circle) located in the lower right corner to reveal additional editing options.
Step 5: You now tap Markup to access the feature. Here, you can draw, write, emphasize, and scribble on the photo using the tools located at the bottom of the screen:
- Pen (the pen icon): Use the pen to draw something or write notes on the photo.
- Magnifier (the magnifying glass over a letter icon): The magnifier tool lets you zoom in on parts of your photo. Text (the T text icon): Tap the text tool to create a text box.
- Colors: Choose which color to use.
- Undo (the reverse arrow icon): Tap the Undo icon to reverse the changes.
Step 6: Once you are done marking up and drawing on the photo, tap Done in the upper right corner.
Step 7: You need to tap Done again to complete editing the photo and save changes to it.
