Morpholio Trace

Trace, essential to any design or creative process, allows users to instantly draw on top of imported images, or background templates, layering comments or ideas to generate immediate, intelligent sketches that are easy to circulate. Morpholio Trace is ideal for architects, designers, photographers, artists, or members of any image driven culture.

What People Are Saying...

"users can draw upon imported images or backgrounds as well as adding comments or ideas which may be emailed to colleagues, increasing global design communication."
"the architects of Morpholio still see a future for the hand-drawn, and they want to fuse the way design was traditionally done with new technology that gives creatives the ability to digitally sketch on "old-fashioned" trace paper and seamlessly share their ideas with one another."
