TraceBox for the Apple iPad is a simple utility to allow users to use an iPad as a light box and trace a photo onto paper.
Many photo apps exist, but they allow the photos to be moved around. This app locks the photo and screen orientation in place so that you have the freedom to trace without moving the photo.
Follow these steps.
- Launch the program
- Select a photo
- Lock the screen.
- Tape a piece of tracing paper to the iPad with transparent tape.
- Using a pencil trace the lines you want to transfer.
