Ultimate Features (4 out of 5)
In a separate editing window you’ll find the most important drawing function. It provides the flexibility to edit more than one photo at a time. The main menu of the program is separated from the editing window and contains the most frequently used functions as well as the undo/redo and zoom controls. We can zoom in between 1 to 32, or zoom out between 3/4 and 1/10. The drawing tool displays the name of the icon when you move the mouse over a certain icon. You can also change the tool bar position by dragging it.
The drawing color window allows you to select color for background, shadows, or a color parameter in a photo. Via the dialog box you can change the hue, saturation, intensity, and red, green, blue (RGB) component of the color. It also provides hexadecimal code for the selected color which you can use in the HTML field. For enhanced color editing you get a separate fast palette toolbar. Here you can see different colors in adjacent boxes. These boxes help you store and restore the most often used colors and perform different operations on these colors. On the histogram panel you can see the statistics of the current image. It provides information about the number of color shades and their distribution. You can also enhance the photo quality with the optimizing image dialog. It helps you to optimize your images and to find the image format and parameters that best fit your particular needs.
