PHOTO TRACER

The MyCaseBuilder Photo Tracer allows you to upload a photo and turn it into the perfect custom shape.

1 UPLOAD:
Click on Photo Tracer icon to begin. Upload a photo from your computer by clicking on the Trace a Photo button. Once you find your photo, click OPEN to upload. 
 

PERFECT PHOTO:
 
 
THIS IS A PERFECT PHOTO BECAUSE:
  • High resolution
  • Contrasting background
  • Good lighting in the photo
  • Taken straight on, without shadows
  • Edge of the picture not intersecting with the object to be traced
  • Enough white space around the object to be traced



THESE AREN'T PERFECT:


TIP
: If you have a tall item, you must rotate your photo by 90 degrees so that the item's longest dimension is left-to-right. This will ensure accurate scaling.


Example: A tall item that has been rotated for proper scaling.


 

2 TRACE:

i. Auto Tracing
To activate auto trace move the slider to the left. Then, click Continue to Next Step to proceed. If your PNG is transparent, and there is only one shape contained in the image, your image will be auto-traced by the program.
 

 

ii. Manual Tracing

Here, tracing is done using point-to-point lines - connect your traced line to the starting point to close your shape.

Manual Tracing can be activated if Auto Tracing is unable to generate a shape.
To activate Manual Tracing move the slider to left and click on Start Manual Trace.

 

3 EDIT & SCALE:
Precisely measure the length of your item

 

 

Edit with the Add Points, Move Points, and Delete Points buttons.

Scale by adding in the length.

 

Scale by adding in the depth.
