Our image editor offers various ways in which you can modify your images. The first you will need to do in order to begin the editing is select the specific image you would like to edit. Once selected our image editing menu will appear above the album editor. It looks like this:
We will go over the options from left to right.
1.The effects are discussed in much more details in the following page how to use the effects in the image editor. In short though, the effects are manipulations that can give a vintage or instagra look to your image.
2.Clicking he enhance button will open another menu. In this menu you will have the ability increase or decrease the image contrast and brightness. In addition an Enhance button is present which makes the colors of your image appear more vivid.
3. The Crop button will allow you to crop out parts of the photo you don't want in your albom
4. The border button will allow you to create a colored border around your picture as well as give you the ability to modify the roundness of the image corners.
To use these you will first need to enable the border by clikcing on the button most to the left seen below:
To the left of the acticavation button you can determine the border size, the corner size (more means rounder) and the color of the border.
Adding a border and a rounded corner will result in something similar to this:
5. Next up is the shadow option. This option will add a shadow effect around the picture you are editing. This is what the menu looks like:
Just like with the border, you will first need to enable the shadow by clicking on the siwtch located on the far left of the menu.
Once enabled you will be able to select the shadow's color, change the size, angel, opacity, blur and offset of the shadow.
The shadow size will determine the size of the shadow around the picture, in the angle you have chosen.
Changing the angel will move the shadow around the image.
The opacity will change the intensity of the shadow (more means darker)
The blur option will make the shadow seem more blurry and pixeli.
The offset will make the shadow more further or closer to the image in the angel you choose.
The results can be subtle like the example below:
Or pretty extreme like in the following example:
If you don't like the result of your shadow you can just diable it.
Get creative, that is what the editor is for!
6. Opacity - Opacity simply makes your pictures more (or less) transparent. The setting is modified using a slider. By default the slider is at 100% meaning 0% transparency. The lower you set the slider the more transparency you will see.
7. Orientation - This option is explained in detail in this KB articles: How to rotate your photo
Basically, this option rotates your photo.
8. Shape - The shape option allows you to turn your picture into an oval one rather than the detault rectanguar. Please note that thi means your image will get cropped in the corners.
Here is an example of how this will look:
9. Align - Clicking on the align option will open three options of alignment. Vertical, horizontal and spread.
The vertical alignment will snap the picture to the center of the find on the vertical axe.
The horizontal alignment will snap the picture to the center on the horizontal axe.
The spread alignment will snap the picture to the exact center of the page on the horizontal axe.
10. Fit - Fit will make your picture fit on the entire page (just one page), spread (two pages) or within it's designated box. To do each of those just click on the fit you want to have.
