I have a kopykake and I LOVE it!! I get what ever kind of picture I need for my cake off of the internet and print it the size 3 by 5. Put it in the kopykake, so you can see the picture, using the little bar things to hold it, turn it on and it will reflect the image on to your cake. You will have a cylinder with magnifying glass on both ends. One end will make the picture larger and one end will make it smaller, you have to work with the cylinder to get it the size you need for your cake. You also can move the projector up and down the pole to adjust the picture also. You really just have to work with it until you get what you want. I also find that the darker your room is the better you can see the pic on your cake. I always outline the picture on my cake with black gel then I either airbrush the colors on or I use colored gel. Hope this helps.....have fun, when you get the hang of it, you will wonder what you ever did without it!!!!
