Home Design FAQ’s

Can I save my design?

Absolutely! Just make an account using the menu on the top right of the visualizer and you can save any of your projects. Then you can go back at any time to visit your saved items in My Projects.

What do I do if the size of my stone looks off?

When uploading your own photo, if you forget to set the scale of the project, your stones might be smaller or larger than they would normally appear. However it’s easy to set this right in the Instone Visualizer. Just Edit your photo with the set scale option. Choose something you know the size of like a door, which is normally 6′ 8″ will fix the issue. You can see more on how to do this in the Advanced Editing: Set Scale video. Or better yet take 20 minutes and watch the Pro Tips Video that will explain how to do this and more!

What if the stone looks skewed?

That could be an issue with your perspective. In edit mode, go to perspective and be sure the guides match up with how your photo is oriented. See how to do it in Advanced Editing: Set Layer Perspective. Or better yet take 20 minutes and watch the Pro Tips Video that will explain how to do this and more!

What’s the best way to compare different combinations of stone?

Just use the snapshot tool to toggle between different versions of stone combinations. See more in snapshots.

What do I do if the photo importer didn’t get my outlines correct?

Not a problem. You have full control. In edit mode you can use handles on the outlines to redefine them. You can also add and remove surfaces easily. And for even more customizations watch the complete video on how to use the Instone visualizer. Or better yet take 20 minutes and watch the Pro Tips Video that will explain how to do this and more!

How can I add more surfaces to a sample photo?

Are you looking for even more customization options on a sample photo. No problem. Just open the sample photo and save it as a new project. Now you can edit it like you would a photo you uploaded yourself. Add surfaces, change perspective, group items and more.
