Product Description:
Artograph PRISM™ Opaque Art Projector The Artograph Prism is an Opaque Projector. You put a picture from a magazine or a photograph or any image on it and it projects it, enlarged, onto a wall or canvas for you to sketch out.

The Artograph Prism is a superb artists’ projector to capture much detail and not requiring very dimmed room lighting to work.

Original picture is loaded on top. Magnetic door-latches and a spring-clip hold image secure in place.
Will accept pictures up to 7-in. x 7-in. (18 x 18 cm) – which is more than most projectors on the market! (For larger images, just do one portion at a time, first top right half, then top left half, then bottom right half etc…
You can even project from books of 3-d objects!

Projection is horizontal.
You would need to purchase Prism Table Stand (#A225-206) for overhead vertical projecting with up to 3-½ times enlargement onto a table-top.

Enlarges up to 20 xs size of original.
Reverse the lense and it can reduce up to 80% too.

The plastic sleeve of the light socket and the bulb on one side were broken when it arrived. I'm replacing the bulb and ignoring the broken socket. Otherwise it seems I will be satisfied when I finally get to use it.

Hello,

I'm a painter. I mainly paint with oil on various sized canvas on stretcher bars. I've been looking into purchasing an Artograph Prism projector however, I've yet to have it explained to me by anyone exactly how to a photo to fit the overall canvas.

Example: A 5x7, 6x4, 5x3, etc, picture placed into the projector doesn't seem to project perfectly onto a 16x20 or 24x30 canvas. An artist friend purchased the above projector at least a month ago and still can't figure out how to get the image to fit any canvas size. He has changed the sizes of the images in his computer software program (I think he uses a full version of PS) and still cannot manage to get it to scale exactly onto the canvas. He has all but given up trying to use the projector. I tried to help him and neither of us could figure it out with various sizes and resizing photos...

I considered buying one but this seems like rocket science and I don't want to waste my money.

Frankly, your site is the only one I've found so far that offers as much info as you do about projectors (Artograph doesn't even have that sort of tutorial!) and yet, I can't find any easy/simple answer to my question... anywhere. Are we missing some kind of math, etc that is so simple that we've overlooked it? As I am sure you are well aware... once you get out of the small sized canvases, the standard dimensions seem to be 12x16, 14x18, 16x20, 20x24, and then those that are 24x30 and up... I mostly paint on those that are at least 16x20 and 20x24 but also 24x30 and up.

If by chance you have an easy fix or some special equations or guides to go by and would share the info, I'd be ever so grateful! :)

Thank you for your time and attention and I hope you have a solution.

Sincerely,
Donna...

Dear Donna,

Opaque Projectors all enlarge sizes in direct proportion to the original.
i.e., if the original is 5" x 7" and you enlarge it to double it's size, it will be 10" x 14".
if the original is 5" x 7" and you enlarge it to triple it's size, it will be 15" x 21". You can go down a bit under 15" x 21", but the length and width will both reduce proportionately. You can not proportionately enlarge a 5" x 7" to exactly 16" x 20".

What artists do, is enlarge it as comfortable as they are on the 16" x 20" and just work the border art in.

Alternatively, you can measure the projection size that you like, and then stretch a canvas to exactly the custom size that you want.
We carry custom canvas stretching supplies here:
