How to import "pencils" into LayerPaint

I've been sharing a lot of sketches I've created on my Galaxy Note 10.1 with LayerPaint (https://play.google.com/store/apps/details?id=org.nattou.www.layerpaint&hl=en). And in some cases I've started the sketch in another app like +Papyrus (another great sketching app) or on a piece of scratch paper, then imported the drawing into LayerPaint for finishing.

But when you import the art into LayerPaint, you may have noticed that the app will resize your canvas to the dimensions of the imported image. I may start with a 2300x1500px canvas, but if I import a sketch that's 590x600px, it will reset the canvas to the latter.

However, LayerPaint offers a way to import your sketches without resizing your canvas. I've put together this visual tutorial that explains all the steps.

    Thanks for sharing! I've actually been doing pretty much the same thing, but I had no idea how to rotate my selection! That's going to be exceptionally useful.

    Glad it was helpful! I got some emails asking about this bit of functionality, so I thought I'd put together a quick tutorial.

    LayerPaint is awesome, but there's very little in the way of tutorials/documentation! After the nuttiness of KRC organization, I think I might do some more tutorials.

  3. Thanks so much for this, Jerzy. It's tough figuring out a new program when you've only got a few minutes here and there to fiddle with it. Now I can make better use of the little time I have with Layer Paint!
