Top Menu Bar Images

All Image settings are located at the Image feature icon in the top menu bar. If a frame with the Image feature is selected the tab shows the settings for images.

Image Placement

Image Fitting
Every image can either fit into a frame fully visible (fit) or fill out a frame entirely (fill). Additionally one can crop an image to apply an individual clipping.

Image Fitting
In both modes one might use the Fit Frame To Image button which will adjust the frame to the size and position of the full image, also removing any cropped area.

Fill Mode & Focal Point

When using the fill option the focal point setting is taken into account. E.g. if set to the center-top it will center the image and move its top to the top of the frame. This ensures that the focal point area stays visible even with differing aspect ratios between frame and image.

Crop Mode

By using the Crop button one can choose the visible area of an image. In crop mode, the frame changes and shows the visible area surrounded by larger white bars and the complete size of the image as a slightly grayed out area with normal frame manipulators. Both frames can be manipulated independently and by clicking the center of the visible area one can also move the image inside the visible area. Press the Close Crop button or use Esc to leave crop mode.

Image Mask

Image Mask

Images can be masked by either a shape or a single line text. To use this option the frame must contain either a Shape or a Single Line frame feature. To switch on masking, click on either the Shape or Text button and the image will be masked with the selected feature. Only the fill area of the feature will be used for masking. If a stroke is present it will be drawn without masking.

Change Image

Image Mask

If a frame with an image feature is selected, one can also change the image shown by clicking on one of the loaded images in the Change Image area. If the former image had crop selected the frame will automatically switch to fill mode to ensure the new image is not distorted. If Fit or Fill was selected the setting will stay.

Image Manipulators

Printess allows users to easily change basic image properties like brightness, contrast or saturation directly in the Image tab.

Additionally, one can use an adjustable sepia effect or rotate the hue of the image, effectively rotating all colors in the image:
