  • I want to annotate a photo I took through the app. When I click on the Gallery it brings up my iPhone photos. The photos in the app are not stored in my iPhone photos.

  • Actually photos selection is labeled Choose Photo not Gallery.

  • Hey Steve, thanks for reaching out.  This is a known bug we are working on fixing.  For now you would need to screenshot the photo and then re-import as an annotation
