The best art related app ever! It motivated me to draw again after a decade long pause. It let me rediscover passion for art. Thank you Pete. The best gift I could hope for.

The recent 9.0 updates to this app make it even more useful! Buy the app - you will not be sorry. Join the Facebook group to see all of the great art it makes possible. I do both watercolor painting and relief printing. This app is very useful in getting the image to the paper or directly to the Lino or woodblock. One can do a simple outline or even just indicate points accurately to later be completed by brush or by cutting the plate. It can easily be used to create a complete drawing though this Is not how I use it. It is a very versatile tool with many applications.

I'm not a techie. Not even remotely. So, when I had a question I emailed the developer, Pete. I've never had such awesome customer service and response from an app before. Super helpful and friendly. So nice to see this in today's world. He helped me out and now I'm off to use this app for making cookies. I didn't want to invest in bulky, expensive equipment. Now, why would I?? This is perfect for projecting (or overlaying) the image and tracing it on to my cookie. I'll definitely be passing this app along. Thanks Pete!!

This is a very, very clever idea that has been superbly-translated into an application. Smart, highly-useful features, an intuitive, uncluttered interface, and great support all make this a clear winner.

In 15 minutes I had sketched out my first drawing. I'm in love!
Hutch376's Review of Camera LucidaReviewed on 12/14/18 1:11 PM
Ever since I purchased the Camera Lucida app four years ago, I have been using it to make pencil drawings onto my painting surface before painting from a digital photograph - no more transfer paper, no more inkjet printer! I've probably saved hundreds of dollars not buying ink. While I am painting, I turn on the posterize feature and refer to it in order to guide my color/value choices - the app helps A LOT to identify the light and dark areas of the photograph. It's also great to zoom in on details, like eyes, and draw them accurately. For most paintings, after making the initial drawing, I do not attempt to paint while looking through the app/ipad - just have it next to me as a reference. Sometimes, however, I do the whole painting using the app, and skip the pencil drawing altogether, especially if I am using pastels. There is a Facebook group for Camera Lucida users, and I've learned a lot of tricks there, including ideas on how to build a stand to support the iPad. I love this app!

OMG! This app is just what I wanted. I have been using a clunky lightbox to trace art onto my drawing surfaces and it just wasn’t practical for the large size art I want to create, 22”x30” for example. This app makes doing huge art easy and effortless. The developer, Pete, was super helpful in walking me through how to mirror my iPad to my flatscreen and now I am making large art with intricate detail like a master! Thanks Pete for this amazing app and the affordable price. When you release an IPO for this app, I want to invest! Thanks!

The app as stated in other reviews is worth every penny. The zoom function that allows you to get into detailed sections of your picture to add more detail to your drawing is phenomenal. As a serious watercolorist, this app has allowed me to reduce my sketching times by at least 4x and sketch subjects I probably wouldn't have tackled before, such as portraits. This program is really a great piece of software and coding by the developer.
