These documents explain how to use and make the most of Camo. If you're yet to install it, please check out getting started with Camo before returning here.

The Camo Studio window

When you first run Camo Studio, the Camo Studio window will open and should look like the image above. It’ll be showing its “Welcome” popup.

If your iOS device is connected to your computer and running Camo, you'll likely be seeing a preview of its camera feed. If not, you'll likely be seeing a prompt to connect your device.

If you click “close” on the welcome screen, you’ll see the Camo Studio window. (You can always get back to the welcome screen by clicking “Help” on the top-right of Camo Studio.) Below you can see examples of the window with a device connected and without.

Note that the “No devices connected” screen will show if a device is connected that isn’t running Camo. To connect a device to Camo Studio, it must be plugged in, and the Camo app must be running on the device.

If you’re using your computer in Dark Mode, Camo Studio will automatically adjust itself to fit that, along with any custom accent colours a user has set.

The Camo Studio window can be safely closed at any time: its window doesn’t have to be open for Camo to work.

Camo Studio's menus

When Camo Studio is running, you’ll see there’s always a Camo icon shown in your computer's menu bar, at the top of the screen. If you click it, you'll see a menu appears with a number of options and sub-menus. You can use this to open the Camo Studio window if you’ve previously closed it.

The Camo Studio icon in the menu bar indicates the state that Camo is in. In the screenshot below we show the OK, paused, and disconnected states.
