Description

First released in June 2010, CopyIt is the original and most feature rich grid drawing app available anywhere! See why so many artists, teachers and students are using CopyIt as an essential tool in their workflows. NEW USERS - PLEASE NOTE: Due to the large number of features in CopyIt, the toolbars are scrollable. Try scrolling each toolbar to access all of the available buttons. Used by artists such as Vincent Van Gogh and Leonardo da Vinci, the grid drawing method has been brought to digital life with CopyIt. CopyIt assists you in copying, enlarging or reducing your chosen reference image using the grid drawing method. You do not even need to be artistic. The grid drawing method has been used for centuries. It breaks images down into smaller work areas allowing you to focus on the actual lines and shapes within each square, rather than trying to draw the whole picture at once. You can't help but achieve with this method. Using CopyIt as your reference object, it saves you from having to print your photos and ruin them by drawing grids over them, but unlike a real photo, it gives you the ability to zoom into the fine details. With a pencil, you then draw up a grid with the same number of squares using a separate medium, such as paper or canvas. Working square by square, you CopyIt! If you want to draw an image larger or smaller than the original, the pencil-drawn grid should be drawn larger or smaller than the original grid on the device with the same amount of squares.  All that matters is that the contents of each square are drawn to scale. FEATURES: - Comprehensive Help - Portrait or Landscape orientation - Universal App, compatible with iPad, iPhone and iPod touch - Fullscreen mode (hides toolbars) - Built-in Music player - Audible feedback (can be turned off) - Extra options in the Settings App - Set your Maximum Zoom level from x1 to x20 - CopyIt can resist entering standby while in use - TubeMatch™ for approximating tube colours - Mosaic to average surrounding colours into coloured squares - Tonal Strip to help identify values - Media types (Imperial and Metric) Grid Options: - 6 Grid Types - Preset or custom Columns, Rows and Points grid sizing options - To maintain the grid visibility regardless of your photo, choose from 9 grid colors, Black (default), Gray, White, Red, Green, Blue, Yellow, Orange and Magenta - Grid transparency is adjustable in 5% increments - 5 different Grid Line thicknesses - Grid letters and numbers (now 8 different formats) - A center point in each grid square - Guidelines: 1/4 and 1/16 to help you copy your subject - Solid or Dashed Guidelines - Guideline colour can be set independently to Grid colour - SmartMove: Just touch a square once to zoom to that square - SmartMove: takes advantage of your maximum zoom setting, never zooming in more than that amount - Target mode highlights the current square and dims the rest, helping you to focus your attention Filters and Effects: - 12 Primary Filters - 6 Secondary Filters - Onion Skin Feature: Overlay your reference image above your work to quickly assess your accuracy - 12 different image aspects - Rotate the image in 90 degree increments - Vertical and Horizontal Flip image Import Options: - Cameras are supported - both front and back - Load Project - Load From Photo Album Export Options: - Save Project - Export Photo (AirDrop, email, message, print, export to Facebook, Twitter etc) For detailed instructions on how to use CopyIt, a user guide is available within the App and on the Support website.

    Besides the grid I would like to crop the photo to standard canvas sizes before I put on the grid so I can grid my canvas with the same proportions. I also can’t find out how change the picture to show the tonality.
  • Awesome!

    This is the best for learning proportions for me. Also being able to zoom in on target areas is tremendous help because my vision is bad. I love it so far. All seems great. Thanks. Almost Didn't buy it because of the price but took a chance and it was a winner. I've tried so many apps but nothing compares to this that I've tried. Buy it and you won't be sorry. No.. I wasn't told to say all this 🤗🤗 I never used grid method and succeeded. I hate the erasing but worth the trouble.
  • Incredible

    Best app I have found for applying a grid over a photo. photoshop does not even do this. I often paint with accuracy in mind an a grid is imperative. Sometimes Expressionism is fine, but when I need to grid something this app has made my life a lot easier. Just set my iPad up next to painting and go. I admit I am fairly neat when I paint - no messy brushes,spills, or paint any place but the canvas. GREAT APP.
  • Not worth it

    There's no reason to fight with this app when it's far easier to download a free app that works. I can't get my whole image to fit, I can't get the grid size I want. This app is not worth paying for.
  • Excellent Artist's App

    This is a really amazing app for artists who need a grid program for laying out and working on their art. Highly recommend!

    I wanted an app which would allow me to create sketches based on photos while traveling. This app is perfect. Lots of options for grid sizes, zooming, numbering the grid squares, etc. I shoot a photo with my iPhone, transfer it to my iPad using iCloud sharing, create a grid version with this app, create grid lines in my sketchbook and then start drawing. You can save the project with the grid lines imposed and come back later and finish.
  • App's great
