    Dimensioning Software that Supports JPG files?

    Hello,
    Does anyone know of a simple CAD type software that will open JPG files and has a dimensioning (lines and numbers) function that can add them to the JPG photo? I don't need it to be able to scale or calculate any dimensions, just draw and save already established dimensions on the photo file. Thanks!

    Hi Larry,

    maybe Word is enough for your dimensions.

    I like Corel Draw Essentials (that is the light version). This software can draw easy objects, text and export it as an JPG or PDF. I do not know if CD is still offer a light version.

    Hello Lothar,

    Thank you for the response but what I am looking for is a CAD dimensioning software that will import jpg, or tiff, or gif files and allow me to plot dimensions on them. Know of such a program? Thanks!
