What is Proportioner? How Do You Use It?

Resize Images Quickly and Accurately with No Math Involved!

Capture realistic proportions

What is a Proportioner? A proportioner is a tool or technique used to measure and compare proportions accurately when creating a drawing or painting. It helps artists ensure that the proportions of different elements in their artwork, such as the size and placement of objects, figures, or facial features, are rendered correctly and in proper relation to one another.

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 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
