About Datgel Photo Tool
The Datgel Photo Tool gINT Add-In makes it quick and easy to link, organise and print core box photos, test pit photos, surface photos, sketches and more in gINT.
The photos are recorded in a table in gINT and sorted by depth or image number. Metadata such as date taken and description are also retrieved automatically. Included with the Photo Tool are graphic table and log reports, which can output your photos, grouped by PointID, ordered by depth or image number, and layouts of 1, 2 or 4 photos per page are available.
