Title: Provisional Patent Drawings
Post by: sherimilner on March 12, 2017, 07:32:30 AM
When I create my Provisional Patent, am I allowed to use Photos in lieu of drawings?  Should I include photos at all in my Provisional Patent or wait until the final Patent?

Photos are okay for the provisional (but not ideal).  The patent rules say you should use black and white line drawings.   A good patent draftsman should be able to convert photos to proper patent drawings for about $30-$50 per photo.
