The Image Editor

Top  Previous  Next

The image editor allows you to resize, trim and adjust the colors of any image that Compass is going to display. This is particularly useful when you have very large images because Compass may be slow in displaying the images especially when the image has to be rotated. The changes made by the Image Editor are different from the resizing and clipping that the Viewer automatically does as you pan, zoom and rotate. Changes made by Image Editor are premanent.

 

If you have already loaded an image, you can edit the image with the Image Editor by selecting the “File|Edit Bitmap” option from the menu bar. You are also automatically given the option of using the Image Editor whenever you load a bitmap image for display in Compass.  The Image Editor allows you to perform the following operations:

 

Resizing Images.

Clipping Images.

Brightness/Contrast/Gamma.

Undo, Copy and Paste.
