Reference in drawing and painting is an auxiliary image that artists study during their work. It can be a photo or sketch that may reflect the main idea as well as provide additional details.
After launching, the user has to select the path to the images. It is also possible to drag-and-drop pictures from a folder directly.
PureRef can be used together with other drawing tools like Sketchable. The utility allows you to select the size of the reference image and pin it to anywhere on your screen.
It is possible to change the size of each image, group them, control transparency, and select the background color. Additionally, you can create text notes. The utility also supports keyboard shortcuts.
