Catchbook lets you insert images from your gallery, the cloud and by taking photos.



Once an image has been inserted, you can make it a trace image.  This increases the image's transparency and pins it to the background, thus allowing you to draw or trace over it!

Can I trace over a photo of a building and then make the perspective orthographic?

Hi @lking


There is currently not a way in Catchbook to switch to an orthographic perspective automatically. You would have to manually draw it that way. 




Thanks. It would really useful for making photos into drawings and I think autodesk sketcher does it. I'm sure you couldn't tell us if it might be in development, could you?

I am not sure whether it is in development, but you're right, I wouldn't be able to say anything regardless Smiley Happy
