A Proportioner is a Great Tool for Resizing Drawings

 

Resize Images Quickly and Accurately with No Math Involved!

 

With a new ingenious tool at their disposal, artists can now resize images the way that artists have struggled to do for centuries. In the past, correctly enlarging, reducing, and transferring images without ruining the proportions has been a nightmare. Artists have tried getting results from everything from grids to calipers, expensive cameras made for measuring and even lasers, however none of those tools offer the promise of getting and transferring the right proportions like the Acurit Proportioner!


The Acurit Proportioner is an innovative new tool that can correctly transfer proportions between drawings or between objects and drawings, and without any math involved. No rulers or real measuring involved. The Proportioner works by consisting of two moveable indicators on a scale. By rotating a knob, you can move the indicators to find the appropriate proportions. The proportioner can be easily set to any proportion ratio!

 

 



The Acurit Proportioner can:

  • Quickly resize images with the right proportions
  • Great for working in the field
  • Does the work for you- stores the proportions you set with no math required
  • Perfect for drawing from reference photos or from real life!

How to Use the Proportioner:

 

Use in the Field

Proportioners are much more accurate than grids or compasses when finding the right proportions. From there, resizing images is easy, quick and precise. And the proportioner is great for field work too. Plein Aire artists can greatly benefit from using the Acurit Proportioner by taking it into the field and drawing and creating artwork from real life. The best part about it is it requires no electricity or math to measure out the proportions. It' so simple to use and artists are guaranteed to get perfect proportions every time.

 

School and Workshop Use

Art teachers and instructors should buy these for classes and art students. Remove the guesswork, freehand drawing, and use of clunky equipment: ensure all your artwork proportions are exactly to scale with the new Acurit Proportioner! The Acurit Proportioner can be easily set to any proportion ratio by rotating the knob (without depressing) until the reference indicators line up with two fixed points — say, the eyes in a portrait image

would you care if I retweet this page?

It looks neat but using a scale ruler works just as well. What would be the advantage of using the proportioner in place of a ruler?.

Kerian, the Acurit Proportioner can slide the indicators to adjust to less convenient measurements and is much easier to keep track of your proportions though the indicators rather than keeping count of inches or centimeters.  The proportioner gives you the exact measurements with which you can make adjustments. It really is a revolutionary tool.

Are there any reviews for this new product-or is it just that new? Looks like an awesome product-A product that we need for a long time.

Need written instructions. I am normally a visual learner but the video is to fast and information ambiguous. I have watched numerous times and still can't use this tool. Lots of information on what it does but no step by step instructions on how to use it. Maybe l just have a blind spot on this. Help.
