I have a 5 story building I am doing an estimate on and the receptionist's counter on the top floor is about 5 meters long and made of Corian, with lots of detail including built in lighting etc. So I sketched it separate from the actual room and made it into a "room" all by itself. I know, maybe I could have done reference blocks etc, but I am self taught so I do what I am comfortable with.
After I made all kinds of little text notes and arrows regarding the stainless steel toe kick, custom package delivery shelf etc, I realized I couldn't easily copy the room to put it on a separate XM8 level (page) because the notes don't copy automatically when you copy and paste a room. I should have put it on a separate level to begin with, but I am learning as I go.
I needed to get a sub bid because it is such a custom item so when the carpenter asked me for more details I just enlarged that area on my computer screen and photographed it, and then emailed the photo. The carpenter gets a full 8x10 image with all the detail so it worked very well.
I actually do that a lot, take photographs of my computer screen and email it.
When I worked Hurricane Ike the carrier actually instructed us to take photos of the insured's computer screen, if neccesary, to document BI losses.
I also take photos of the insured's photos and sometimes the photo images displayed on the insured's smart phone. Obviously I could wait to get the promised emails but sometimes they never come and sometimes there is only one chance to get the documentation.
Now with a smart phone an adjuster could take a photo of a specialty item and email that photo to a subcontractor for price opinion while the adjuster is still at the loss site. And the adjuster could even look up subs on the smart phone. So for example if there is some damaged stained glass in a town you've never been in before, you could look up 2 or 3 stained glass shops while standing at the loss and shoot them an message right there in real time.
I really like my old camera but I am finding my smart phone often takes better pictures even with its tiny lens.
