We included 3 variations of Golden ratio visualization for you to choose from:
#1 – Goldie – Gives a general idea of the ratio proportions.
#2 – Goldie Square – Is more effective for exact alignments.
#3 – Goldie Thirds – Lets you check the rule of thirds in golden proportions.
#4 – Thirds lets you check the regular rule of thirds.
#5 – Diagonal thirds – Lets you check the diagonal rule of thirds.
#6 – Baroque – Lets you check the baroque proportions.
That’s an experimental feature we are trying. It allows to start from a fresh ratio every time.
When engaged you can open the ruler by clicking, holding down and dragging. Every time it will start from zero in stead of from the previous position.
