Clicking on the Edit menu option with a single image selected will display the Edit window, this is split into two panes, the left shows a preview of the final image, the left the working image and adjustment controls. Various functions are available in two groups: Image and Filter. Image deals with the rotation, resizing, cropping and distortion of an image. Filter provides control over image balance, color, sharpness and also as a red-eye reduction option. Once you have finished editing you can choose to save over the original image or save a copy of the newly edited image (JPEG, TIFF or BMP). A composite of the Image / Filter menu options is shown below.
Backup Images [PRO]
Backup Images is a tool only available in the Pro version of Camedia Master. It allows you to backup folders or albums of images directly to removable media or to numbered folders of a certain size (useful for writing to multiple CD-R discs). In 'Create Folder' mode the software simply creates numbered directories which repeat the file system folder structure of the selected images.
There are six different print options available in Camedia Master Pro which cover almost all of the potential printing requirements of the average user. Images are added to the print templates by either drag and drop, select and click Add or 'Add All' (not available in some options). Each option is shown and explained below.
Create and Share
The Create and Share tools provide output options as well as panorama creation. You can produce everything from slideshows to wallpaper, HTML albums and email. Each option is shown and explained below.
|Slideshow - create custom slideshows based on selected images or all images in a folder / album.
