    App to Draw on top of Photos?

    We recently acquired a few Dell Latitude tablets for use at my work and I'm looking for an app which will easily and quickly allow me to take a picture, draw notes on top of it, and then save the file to be transferred to our server later. We need to document certain conditions at various locations while working in the field and this technique seems to be our best bet. We're currently doing this with ease with our iPads but I can't find anything for Win8. I'd be happy using the iPad to do this task but that would mean we would need both tablets since the other program we need is a Windows only program and the reason we bought the tablets in the first place.

    Any help would be greatly appreciated! Thanks!

    Thank you, however I already tried that and it sucked. One big problem is the lack of pinch & zoom. There's a zoom tool but it only seems to zoom in. In order to zoom out you then have to move to the view tab. Also, I would prefer an app that allows you to take the photo, mark it up, and save all within the app so that I can streamline the process. Paint makes you take the photo and then load it in paint from the photo gallery folder. This process is time consuming for what we are doing, and as they say - "time is money".

    I love love love Skitch. I use it for the screenshot stuff when I try to help people out with troubleshooting...

    very easy to use. you don't have to change the original photo (easily copies to a new file).

    there's also OneNote which is great for more serious work and more options (though a little more complicated).
