Editor Tools

Use the mouse-based tools in the Editor to make precise edits to individual pictures. These tools are grouped together in the Side Panel. Activating a tool makes the Side Panel display options and settings appropriate for that tool. One tool, no more and no less, is always active at a time.

After using certain tools (e.g. Crop), you need to Apply or Cancel their effects by clicking the Apply or Cancel button, or pressing the [Enter] or [Esc] key

To return any tool to its default state, click the arrow icon in the header of the tool’s settings. For some tools, you can save their settings as presets and load them in later. To do so, use the diskette (for saving) and the list of saved presets (for loading) in the Side Panel.
