Create, customize and export grids on top of reference images, for drawing guidance, a tool for artists and those learning how to draw.

The Grids produced allow you to learn following the Leonardo Da Vinci method.

With Grider you load a reference image, customize different grids on top of it and then export the grid and import it into your your preferred drawing application to use as a drawing guidance. Since the exported grid is a PNG image, you can also print it or modify it as needed.

Grider also exports the grid on top of the reference image, as a separate file.

How to Use
(See the example GIF screenshot.)

  1. Load a reference image
  2. Choose where the grid will be saved to (Set Save Path)
  3. Scale the image if you want (the grid will be exported at the selected scale)
  4. Customize each grid type available. You can choose the line width and color, and also toggle grids on and off.
  5. Export
  6. Import the grids into your drawing application and draw/paint (or print it).

Known Issues

  • An image at full size may appear clipped in Grider, but it is correctly exported at full size. This will be fixed as soon as scrolling is implemented.
  • No way to scroll.

Hello, the x32 version does not work. Perhaps the grider0.1-win32.zip archive contains the x64 version)
