The image can be used to make a copy or to experiment with layout, allowing the artist or designer to see what the finished design will look like on another surface. Imagine painting a mural on one of your walls. You can use the projector to see what it will look like before committing yourself to the painting. Allowing you control to change colours and contrast, to add and remove items before deciding on a final design.
