|Image (page 1)|
||Description: An Image is a non-vector (bitmapped) graphic.|
Creation: Images are usually imported into Create. You can drag and drop an image file (in JPG, TIFF, GIF, PDF, or PNG format) from the Finder into a Create document. You can also copy and paste an image from another application.
You can create an Image from Create graphics by selecting the graphics, choosing an image format in the Image Well and dragging from the Image Well to your Create document.
Modification: Create is not an image editing program. In Create, you can scale, rotate, shear, and crop (see Mask Groups) images. You can also dissolve (add transparency) to an image.
To open an image in an image editing program of your choice by double-clicking on the image, check the Double-click to edit in Image Editor checkbox in the Image pane of the Preferences window. Only files can be opened in an image editing program. This means that images that are pasted into Create cannot be edited in an external program. It also means that if an image is copied into Create (rather than linked), the Create document must be saved before the image can be edited.
