iPhotoMEASURE Standard Edition is a revolutionary software tool that enables you to measure anything in a photo taken with your digital camera. This is very useful when physical measurements are difficult or unsafe to perform.
The iPhotoMEASURE program comes with DigiTargets, which are placed in any area you want to photograph/measure. The DigiTarget provides the software with an accurate scale to base its measurements on.
All that's required is to:
1. Take a digital photo.
2. Open the photo in the iPhotoMEASURE program and select the DigiTarget in the picture for reference. The software automatically measures anything in the photo with 95% to 99.5% accuracy (depending on the angle of the photo).
3. Save, print, share and/or archive the photo with the measurements embedded.
How Precise? Just how accurate are measurements taken from a photograph? According to their website, from 40 feet away, the program has about 93% accuracy. From 30 feet, that increases to 98%, and only gets better the closer you get to the target. “The software is always 100% accurate — but it's the quality of the camera lens that will determine the true accuracy."
