There are two ways to start creating your own 'join-the-dots' design. You can either upload your own 'JPEG' or 'PNG' 'inspiration' image (1), or start with a blank 'portrait' or 'landscape' canvas (3). Once loaded an image should appear on the canvas.
You may want to adjust the size or position of your 'inspiration' image. To do this click and move the image with the mouse, or adjust the size of the image by clicking and dragging the green anchor point in the bottom-hand left corner of the image (video 1).
Once positioned, you can how click 'coarse' editor button (5) and then start adding your points. Keep adding the points until you have created the broad strokes of your design (Video 2).
With the broad design laid out, it is now possible using the 'fine' editor (6) to fine-tune the location of the points and the text labels (Video 6). Position the labels so the text does not conflict with the design and points and text labels use the space well. If you want to add more points to smooth the design you can add point by clicking the line in-between two points, or remove points by clicking those points (Video 3)..
Once you are happy with your design you can click the export pdf button (11), which will download to your computer a 'pdf' document with your design. Don't forget to name your design with the box to the right of the button. Finally you can also download your raw data points (13), which allows you to edit the design in the future, by uploading them with the Reload 'Pts File' button (2).
You should have now correctly made your first join-the-dots image. Enjoy completing it yourself or sharing with friends.
