Photoshop Count Tool

How many? 300, you say? In fact there were exactly 179 people in the choir. The reason I know is that I use Photoshop’s Count tool to put a number on the head of every member of the choir to get a precise count of the number of singers on the risers. No ambiguity; not a cell of indecision: 179, pure and simple.

Originally designed to help cytologists to count cells in microphotos, the Count tool puts a readable number down on the photo each time you click your mouse on a subject. It’s very valuable for determining things like how many white cells are in a blood sample, how many trees in a forest photo… or how many singers are in a choir photo.
