How to Count Metal Sheets

This Guide walks you through the steps to count metal sheets using the CountThings from Photos app.

Select the Metal sheets ID: 076 Counting Template by tapping on the GET button. When multiple Counting Templates for similar items are available, use the one "Recommended" first. Later you can explore other Counting Templates to identify the one that works best for your needs.
Step 2 - Take a Photo Verify that your selected template is shown on the main screen.

Then Take a photo of a stack of sheet metal you would like to count.

Hold down your finger and drag around the area.
