CopyIt assists you in copying, enlarging or reducing your chosen reference image using the grid drawing method.

The humble Grid Drawing Method has been around for a long time.

Throughout history artists were using it to aid them in keeping their proportions correct as they copied their subject.

The ancient egyptians at the beginning of the Middle Kingdom (around 2055 BC - 1650 BC) used it by ‘snapping’ a string soaked in red dye against their drawing surface to create their grid lines.

Renaissance artists would build a wooden frame, hammer in nails spaced equally apart and tie lengths of string from one end to the other to create their rows and columns.
They would then place the wooden frame where they could look through the grid and see their subject from where they would begin work.

More recently, The Grid Drawing Method evolved to where artists would print out a photo and draw their grid directly onto the photo or overlay it with transparent film.
Now with the availability of digital devices such as the iPad, iPhone and iPod touch, CopyIt supersedes all these methods and allows the artist to do more than ever previously possible.
