|Use your camera to take a new photo, or open a photo from your Camera Roll to trace. If you have an image on your clipboard you can start with that too.
|Position your device above your drawing surface. For best results use a tripod or a stack of books to hold the device steady while you draw.
|Position the image on your screen so you can see what you're doing. Use one finger to reposition the tracing image or the camera view. Use two fingers to stretch, pinch, or rotate the tracing image. Tap twice quickly to reset the position and size.
|Use the slider at the bottom of the screen to change the transparency of the tracing image until you can see both what you're drawing and what you're tracing. If your device supports Force Touch (iPhone 6s and later) you can press hard anywhere on the screen to "peek" through the tracing image to see how you're doing.
|Use the flashlight to light up your drawing while you work! (Caution, consumes battery faster.)
|Tap the Swap Camera icon to switch between the back camera and front camera so that you can draw on yourself. (Your tracing image is automatically flipped like you're looking in a mirror.)
|Tap the flower icon to lock the focus while you work. (Prevents the camera from hunting for focus and blurring your view.)
|Tap the hand icon to lock or unlock the camera view to the tracing image so that you can position and resize them together.
|Try different filters to make your image easier to trace!
