Camera Lucida review

Functionality 4/5

After you start the application, you should fix your phone in a certain position. After that, open any image with the help of your gallery that you would like to draw. You can access the gallery by tapping the button that is located at the bottom left corner. The application will display the image over your camera. You can manage the transparency if you tap the “Hand with a pen” icon. There you can also enable your flashlight or even start recording your drawing process. So, after you set everything up, you should just redraw the picture with the help of the smartphone.
