This app is an augmented reality tool for painters and artists who want to trace an image onto a paper or a painting without using a projector or other tools. With this tool you trace an image by looking at your pencil and surface through the camera of your device.

1. Select an image to trace
2. Adjust the image settings, hold to drag, pinch to zoom. Image position can be locked from menu.
3. Use a smart phone holder or place your device on something steady and adjust the composition. You will probably not be able to hold your device steady enough. Still, hold the device with one hand if the device is positioned in way that it might fall down. Be careful. Don't drop your device! You might want to turn vibration off before you start.

It's a bit difficult in beginning but you'll get the hang of it.

Meh. I guess it works okay for what it's for, but is it so hard to simply get an app to trace a photo on your screen, as in just put a transparent photo on your screen while you go to some drawing app. It probably deserves a better rating but ugh seriously it's not too much to ask.

As like a shocker app u will use it with happiness. Really mazza as gaya .

great, except for 1 thing.... best app I've found for this, love that you can increase the contrast so lines can be easily seen, but I wish there was a way that it would freeze the image so the touchscreen would not respond to EVERY touch. Like, if you press and hold in one area, it ignores touch on every other part of the screen until you lift and press and hold somewhere else, or if there was a "lock image" option in the list.

Only used it briefly after i already faffed about using a computer screen to trace then taking painfully long process to copy it again onto a wood project when i could use this app which works pretty well. I dont know if its possible as im not an app programmer but when the pic has set a location for the trace then the pic should lock to the background so if the camera moves then the image moves to match so everything stays in place. Including rotations so you can flip the project for easier angles

Perfect! Changing my review to five stars - gotta love a company that listens to feedback! With the addition of focus this app is now perfect. I've downloaded and tried out all the augmented drawing or "camera lucida" style apps for Android that I could find - and this one is the best, by a long shot. Ignore the one star reviews (they seem to be by people misunderstand the purpose of this app) and download now!

Love it except one tiny thing I love it except for when your trying to trace your phone moves and it's hard to trace the image.other than that it a thumbs up. :-)

gabriel knights

Awesome I been looking for something like this thanks a million

DJN 71

what no lock screen for trace no option to turn camera off

Dmitrii Kniazev

Only one thing Excellent, but could you make it full screen please?

Al Charstein

What? How can I trace anything?

paolo C

Great art tool It's the best app to help in drawing on surfaces using reference images, interface is clean and easy to use, plenty of settings to allow customization. Best app around.

Jaclyn Duell

Almost but no cigar Maybe its different for other people but just trying to get some quick laydowns for some ideas and rough drafts and don't want to spend hours trying to hold my phone straight...I'd rather just draw than do that ...maybe we could just make an app somewhere where it just locks the darn picture and you put the paper over it! Just an idea :) id make it myself if I knew how : / unless there is a function on my phone I'm not noticing ....just very weird with the backwards tracing???

Brianna Stephens

Can't do it So hard can't figure it out

Freya Brown

Omg This game is not the best game! I hated it it was the stupidest rubbishest pooey game ever been seen. ?and good poo to you!?

Tiny Tim

Terrible! It didn't have a pen/pencil like screenshots show. The only options useful was alpha and line settings.

tristan buza

EXACTLY DO WHAT IT DOES Thank you for this app..for those who rate them lower than 5 maybe your just not good at drawing.

Jon Horn

Completely Useless Not good for tracing and it's a tracing app... Uninstalled almost immediately after trying it.

Promise Baier

How How do you draw I don't get it, nothing happens when I try to draw

Rosie Pinsent

Brilliant Great for getting proportions down before doing a sketch. Works with my photos and screenshots. Exactly what I was looking for! :D

- #WolfStar -

Meh. The opacity is too high to see what I'm drawing. Its alright I guess

Dont Matter

Love. Love this app.

Ricky Jordan

AMAZING Just what i wanted, perfect! Does what its supposed to with cool extra features ?

Kat Phantomhive

Sucks Omg the worst thing ever save your phone won't even stay still so you can draw.

David Devine

Instructions would help? Why does it overlay an image you choose with the camera still on behind it? Why cant I lock images I choose? I just want to trace an image on my phone without it moving? What am I doing wrong?

Amanda Edwards

Mmm What game is this it dosent even work

Agnibarna Hassan Nirvana

Exactly what I've been looking for!!!

Kamran Danish

Rubbish app I really don't know how it works, it should to trace the design on tablet but it's rubbish please delete this app.

colin reid

Not very good

John Smith

Could not actually trace Not sure if app not compatible with phone size, but all I saw was the camera view. I opened a picture and the camera view was still in the back. No way to actually take a picture, no button visible. Could not do anything with opened picture either. This is not ready for Google Play store.

shikara sky

Not what you're after Doesnt actually ley you draw over photos and trace them keep moving

Lykesya Aslan

Works perfectly The main problem is not from app, but holding smartphone above paper for long time is painfull, unless you have something to hold it

briana gremillion

I like this app It's very useful.

Nyx Shimizu

Nice! Does what the description says!

Dixie Harrison

Works perfect After I built a phone stand it works great. I can move my phone close or away for a bigger trace. They have a great phone stand on Amazon.

Kimbal Joseph

Camera wouldn't turn off. The camera wouldn't turn off, even after an image was selected. I could not understand how to draw lines.

Las Agne

Easy to use.great you can pick up reference and drawing from your gallery..... but PLEASE put a lock for the Image.I'm actually tracing with real tracing paper on top of the screen and will be perfect if it doesn't moveeeeee. still looking for the perfect app ?

Freya Brown

Omg This game is not the best game! I hated it it was the stupidest rubbishest pooey game ever been seen. ?and good poo to you!?

Niklas Oberfeld

Fine simple app that does exactly what it says. Out of several lightbox apps I tried, this one ended up my favorite. The controls take some time to figure out, but after a couple of drawings they become intuitive. Drawing is actually easy and gives surprisingly good results, especially when you use a stand or tripod (you can fashion yourself a simple one out of a cardboard box in five minutes) And for a free app with NO ADDS, what more can you want?

Josh Mussetter

IMAGE LOCK!! Kinda makes it difficult to trace something when it keeps moving. Would be a great app if you could actually use for its intended use.

matthew wickline

Crap This be good app if it had a screen freeze for the pic so you can trace and pic don't move or resize

Jason Lowenthal

Upside Down on Nexus 5x I can't really use this on my Nexus 5x. The image coming from the camera displays upside down. Fix this and I'll 5* it.
