Grid Painter for iOS

By bigpantsgroup $1.99

Developer's Description

Grid Painter lets you quickly and easily place a grid onto an image for the purpose of using the grid technique of drawing and painting, the same method even Leonardo da Vinci used in his work.

With the portability of our devices and access to thousands of images at our fingertips, more artists than ever are using them as a reference for drawings.

With GridPainter, the process of drawing accurately from your device is easier than ever. Simply select the photo you wish from your photo library or using the "Open In" functionality in Messages or email, the app will scale your image and place a default 2" grid over the top.

From the toolbar select the settings button and decide how big you want your final drawing to be under "canvas size", change the grid color for a nice contrast, and size of the grid. Keep or change the aspect ratio.

You can also crop the photo if you only want a portion.

Everything is saved and you can work with your image in the app, or using the share menu, print, email, or export it to your photo library.

To create a drawing from the photo, simply draw a grid of the same proportions onto a piece of paper as your selected final project size and grid size.

From there you can easily transfer the image by drawing whats in each square, letting the grid take care of the proper scaling and framing within your picture.

Great for when you need to draw a large drawing from a small reference photo, or for drawing complicated imagery.
