Adding Photos

There are two methods for adding a photo to a page:

Photo Box Method Use this method to replace a dark gray photo template box on an project page.

Direct Method Use this method to add a photo directly to a page, whether the page has photo boxes or not.

 

Photo Box Method

To replace the dark gray photo box on a page with a photo:

1.       Double-click on the photo box.

2.       In the Add Photo window, use the left side of the window to browse to the folder with your photos, either by double-clicking the names of folders to open them, or by clicking on the drop-down menu near the top of the window.

3.       To select a photo, double-click the thumbnail of the photo on the right side of the window, or click on it once and then click the OK button.

4.       The photo will appear in the Photo Editor.

Any parts of the photo that are grayed-out will not appear on the page.

           The Reset button will undo any changes you make in the editor.

           The next set of buttons will rotate the photo 90 counter-clockwise (left button) or clockwise (right button).

           The magnifying glass icons will adjust the cropping of the photo to include more (left button) or less (right button) of the photo.

           To change which parts of the photo will be displayed, click on the photo and hold the mouse button down while dragging the mouse around.

           Click OK to place the photo.

5.       The photo replaces the photo box on the page.

6.       To move the photo, click on it and hold the mouse button down while dragging the photo to its new location. To resize the photo, drag one of the light gray handles (small boxes) that appears at the edge of the photo. Corner handles resize the photo proportionally, while side handles stretch out a single edge.
