8,000 photos a month is what the average adjuster takes.  That is a lot of photos!  An adjuster should have a good system for getting those photos imported into Xactimate and labeled or he/she will soon find themselves up at 2 am, smashing their computer or sadly out of work because their running further and further behind. 

Here is the FASTEST and EASIEST way to import and label your photos in Xactimate.  Works all the time and for any type of property claim.


A good photo description answers these questions:

  1. Where is it at?
  2. Is it damaged?
  3. What is it?
It's a pretty simple description but from time to time it can be challenging to put these details in a photo description.  

Here is an example of good photo description created in Caption Builder that answers all the questions needed.
