What is Count Tool?

The count tool is just found in the extended version of Photoshop. Its main use remains in areas such as scientific as well as medical imaging, where it serves for recording the number of items that appear in a specific photo. For example, in the Figure 1 example, I chose the count tool and also clicked on all the red/brown pebbles in the picture to count how many there were. You could see exactly how the individual rocks have a count number overlaying them and the total count number shows up in the count tool Options bar shown in Figure 2.

Figure 1 in this photo you can see an example of where I used the count tool to count all the specific red/brown pebbles. The count numbers are displayed overlaying the picture, yet these will not show when you print the image.


Figure 2 the count tool Options bar. You could choose a custom label color that will certainly finest offset against the color of the items that you mean counting. This color could also be transformed retrospectively, so you can make adjustments to the count number overlays after you have actually finished counting them.
