The Photo Annotation feature in Fulcrum allows users to sketch graphics and add text stamps on top of photos, without ever having to leave the app. This enables data collectors to quickly call out features of interest directly on the photo immediately after it has been snapped in the field.


Annotations are available on all plans.

How it works

There is a setting for photo fields in the app designer to enable annotations for that field.

For photo fields where annotations are enabled, mobile users will have the option to annotate the photo after it has been attached to the record.

Additional Information

  • Saving photo annotations will overwrite the original attached photo with the annotated photo. If you want to retain the original and attach it again, make sure to enable saving to the camera roll.

  • Annotated photos will retain the original photo's EXIF attributes, including any geographic information.
