S Pen drawing over a picture of a woman's face

Sometimes, transferring photos from a screen onto paper is difficult. That won’t be a problem with your Galaxy Note. You can take photos from your Gallery and trace right over them with your S Pen in the PENUP app. Looks like you’re going digital.

Trace over photos

If you have a beautiful photo on your phone, you can trace over it directly on your phone's screen.

Navigate to and open PENUP. Tap Add in the lower right corner, and then tap Photo drawing. Tap either Take picture or Select from Gallery. Next, take or select a picture you would like to draw over. Choose your desired settings for the photo in PENUP, and then tap Done.

Now you can draw, color, or trace over the photo! When you're finished, tap Done.

Next, choose from the following actions to post or save your piece:

  • Save and post: Save the drawing into your Gallery and also post to your PENUP account.

  • Save draft: Save the drawing into the Gallery where you can view it later.

  • Choose a filter: Apply a filter to your drawing, tap Next, and then tap Post.

Note: Tap the Hide background image icon to see your drawing without the photo. Tap the Show background image icon to make the photo return.
