Vermeer’s Lens is an "augmented reality projector" for drawing.
It allows you to make real pencil sketches on paper.
It enables even beginners to make stunning drawings.
Through it’s precise algorithms, what is traditionally difficult, such as portraits, can now be done without the need of construction lines.

How it works :
> a photo is chosen from your photo library and “projected” over the paper to draw on.
> This projection is achieved by imaging the paper on the phone screen, and overlaying the translucent photo onto it.
> With the phone held in a phone-holder, you can use its screen as a lens, through which you trace out the photo onto the paper.
> Phone can be tilted and rotated to the angle most comfortable to you, while "Vermeer’s Lens" transforms the photo to match the perspective of the paper.
> Not just the outlines, even the different subtle tones and contours of a face could be captured, to get that 3-D effect.
> Opacity of the overlaying photo could be adjusted to allow close comparison between your drawing and the photo.
> The overlaying photo responds to on-screen gesture: you could move, scale and rotate the photo during sketching.
> A zoom option allows you to zoom in on your drawing for delicate pencil work.
in addition :
> A Vermeer’s Lens channel is also created on youtube to provide our users with additional "instructions & tutorials"on the use of this app to create art (videos updated every Wednesday).
This is linked directly to the app via the “Demo” button.
> You can email us for support/feedback directly via the “Contact Us” button on the main menu of the app. Or leave a message (go to the “about” tab) on our youtube channel (see “Developer’s website” below).
