Things to Consider

  • Required User Permissions: 'Read-only' and above on the project's Drawings tool can add markups to their Personal layer.

  • Photos added to drawings will automatically populate in the Photos tool under an album called "Photos from Drawings." This album will be visible in the Photos tool by users with 'Standard' and 'Admin' permissions on the Photos tool.


  1. Navigate to the Project-level Drawings tool.
  2. Click Open in the drawing log next to the drawing you're going to mark up. 
    Note: You can also click Info in the drawing log next to the drawing you would like to add an item to, then click Open in Viewer / Markup in the right pane.
  3. Click the Markup icon in the upper right of the page.

  4. Select the Photos icon from the Markup toolbar, or select an existing Photos markup in the drawing to which you can add additional drawings. See Mark Up a Drawing.
  5. Click on the drawing where you'd like to place photos.
  6. Select Upload Files from your Computer or Select Photos from Procore
    1. If you select Upload Files from your Computer, you will be prompted to select photo files from your computer. 
      NoteOnly the following file types can be uploaded to the Photos or Drawings tool: .jpg, .jpeg, .tif, .tiff, .gif, .png, .x-png, .bmp. The maximum file size of an uploaded photo is 2 MB.
    2. If you select Select Photos from Procore, you will be prompted to select an album, and then select a photo from the selected album. You may also select all of the photos in that album by clicking Select All
      Note: You will need both the Photos tool on your account and photos within the photos tool to select photos from Procore.
  7. Click Done to add the photos to the drawing in the selected place.
    Note: You may move the camera icon around after you have added photos to your personal layer, but you may not move the icon once you've published the photos for everyone on the project to see on the published layer.
