What is Pic It!?
Pic It! is an app that allows you to view more content when you scan an image. It also allows you to create the additional content that people see in a variety of ways.
How does it work?
To view additional content simply open the app and press ‘Scan’. Your screen will become a camera and you press on the **icon icon at the bottom of the screen it will scan the object to reveal additional content.
The additional content is created all within the app when you press ‘Create Pic’. Here, you can take photos, videos and audio or retrieve them from your device to allow other people to view them whenever they scan your Pic.
What is a Pic?
A Pic is an image or object created by someone that can be scanned on a device allowing additional content to be viewed. Additional content that you create is linked to a Pic.

What can I view?
After scanning an image you can view photos, videos and listen to audio clips.
What are the best things to create a Pic?
A Pic is best created using a still image that is printed. However, Pics can be with screen images, live objects or even people. Remember, the image or object that is being scanned must be an exact replica of what was used to create the Pic.
How do people know what is a Pic?
Normally the **icon icon will be printed on the page that is a Pic which people understand as something to scan. You can always just tell someone too or have a little slip of paper that gives them instructions to scan.
Why not use a QR code?
Because they are ugly. Who wants a big square icon on the page when you don’t have to have anything at all? And if you do use the P icon we’ve designed it so it blends in enough to not ruin your well-designed image.
It’s also not as versatile as Pic It! You can do so much more with Pic It!

You can create your own Pic by pressing on ‘Create Pic’ on the opening screen or by going into ‘My Pics’ from the menu.
