(Did you click on the crop button?)
- Select the AR button, and scan a wall with your device’s camera to place the virtual canvas print on it
What should I do in AR?
Once AR mode opened, you will see the virtual canvas print and your camera feed on the background. Slowly move around a bit your device, enabling your camera to scan for a wall surface. When a wall surface found your virtual canvas print will be placed on that. You can move it around by swiping with your finger on the screen.
If your device does not find the wall, make sure there are some reference points on it: wall detection uses the camera image, so if it only sees a white wall, it will have hard time detecting the orientation of it. Place some sticky notes where you want to place to canvas print to help it.
Wow! Who needs tape measure anymore?!
While the AR experience is created in 1:1, its precision depends on your device’s momentary performance. Whenever it is a tight fit, always double check carefully with tape measure!
What AR button?
If you do not see AR button in the lower right corner, make sure you are using the latest Chrome browser on your Android device. In case you are using it, it is probable that your device does not support AR. See the list of the supported devices here.
I tapped the AR button, but Google Play Store is opened. Why?
In case you are redirected to install Google Play Services for AR it means that your device is supported, but the AR services needs to be installed. You will need it to view any AR experiences.
I tapped the AR button on my iPhone, but nothing happens. Why?
In case you are using iOS Chrome, it is a known bug of the browser. Please try again in Safari!
