Mini-tip: How to use the ‘Markup’ feature of iOS Messages

With Markup in iOS 14 (and versions back to iOS 12), you can edit screenshots and photos, select different opacity and font thickness, and even add a signature to a PDF document. Here’s how to use it in Messages:

° Open Messages and tap the compose button   to start a new conversation. Or go to an existing conversation.

° Tap the Photos button and select a photo.

° Tap the photo in the message, then tap Markup. From here, you can add a sketch to the photo, or tap the plus (+) button for other Markup options.

° Tap Save, then tap Done.

° Tap the blue arrow  to send.

(This how-to is based on my experiences and info on Apple’s support pages — where the images sometimes come from.)
