How to Sort and Count Grape Berries by Size

This Guide walks you through the steps to sort and count grape berries by size using the CountThings from Photos app.
For each type of object to be counted, you need to add the right Counting Template to your device.
You only need to select the Counting Template once, before counting multiple photos of the same item type.
Step 1 - Adding a Counting Template From the Counting Templates Store, select the Grapes, Beans, Cherries & Berries ID: 022 Counting Template by clicking on the GET button and click Done.
Step 2 - Open Image From the CountThings from Photos app, open the image file.
Step 3 - Sort by size using forms Open the Settings window by clicking on the Settings icon (top right).
Click Forms
In the next window, do the following:
Click on Add new form and give a relevant name to the newly created form.
  1. From the right, add "Count Radio Group" by clicking on the plus sign
  2. Select the Count Radio Group to enable editing options
  3. Make sure the "Auto count clustering" checkmark is checked
  4. Based on your grapes size, add items to the list (e.g. small, medium, large)
Click Save & exit button to apply the changes.
Step 4 - Optional: Define Area of Interest Defining an area of interest is optional, but may be useful in some cases, it allows you to count only a portion of the image.
Make sure the "Define Area" button on the left is selected.
Hold down the left mouse button and drag around the area.
For more details, see the Define an Area guide.
Step 5 - Count Click Count.
Step 6 - Review the Results - Make Modifications if Necessary The count results are shown on the right, sorted by size (as specified in the form created at step 3).
If you notice any counting mistakes, you can easily correct them by adding, deleting, or moving tags.
It's very helpful to use the “Count Review,” which divides the image into cells that can be reviewed one cell at a time.
You can add, delete, or move tags: left click to add, right click to delete, and left press and drag to move a tag.

The results folders are structured by date: the top level folder is named by year, inside each year folder are folders by month, and inside each month folders are folders by day.

Troubleshooting

Step 1 - Calibration Tool If the counting results are not accurate enough, use the Calibration Tool to create a new Counting Template that's optimized to your photos.

Turn the Calibration Tool on by selecting it. The tool will appear over your image.
To make changes to the Calibration Tool, select the pencil icon to edit.
The circular Calibration Tool and its ToolBox will be displayed over the image. Move the Tool over a grape.
Use the Calibration ToolBox to specify the minimum and the maximum size of a grape.
