Image size and placement
Use the controls on the Size & Shape tab to manipulate the size and aspect of your picture. The following list explains the major areas on the Size & Shape tab:
  • Image work area. The image work area is the space in the center of the photo editor window. A white rectangle (the cropping rectangle) will appear inside the image work area representing the boundaries of the image frame in your document. The image you chose in the HP Real Estate Document Assistant photo import wizard appears inside the cropping rectangle. If you move the cursor over the image, the cursor will change to the shape of a hand. Then it enables you to move the image around the image work area by clicking and dragging it. This is useful for centering objects for the final image.
  • Slider bars. The slider bars at the left and bottom of the image work area change the height or the width of the image. Click and hold the arrow-shaped icon on a slider bar, and drag the arrow to change the height or width of the image.
  • Maintain Aspect Ratio. Select the Maintain Aspect Ratio check box to make the two slider bars work together. This allows you to bring objects closer to view or further from view without distorting the picture. You can zoom in on an image to fill in the cropping rectangle and avoid having spaces in the image frame of your document.
Image to frame
The buttons in the Image to frame area reshape your picture to fit the image frame on your document.
The Center image in frame button centers the entire image within the cropping rectangle.

The Enlarge to fit frame button increases the height and width of the image so that the smallest dimension fills the cropping rectangle. It also maintains the aspect ratio.

The Stretch to fit frame button changes the height and width of the image so that the image fills the frame. It does not maintain the aspect ratio.

Frame to Image
The button in the Frame to Image area reshapes the frame in your document to fit the image.
The Resize frame to fit image button changes the size of the image frame in the document to match the size of the image.

Image Adjustments

The Rotate Right button rotates the image 90 degrees to the right (clockwise).

Image quality settings
The options in the Image Quality Settings area enable you to select the print quality of the picture. This also affects the document size.
To select the Image Quality Settings, do one of the following:
  1. For the best print quality, and if the document size on the hard drive is not a concern, select High (larger file size). This is the default option.
  2. For good print quality and smaller document size, select Standard (smaller file size).
  note:
The Image Quality Settings that you select for an image in the photo editor do not affect other images in the document. Once you import an image into a document, you cannot change the Image Quality Settings unless you double-click the image in the document and reopen the photo editor.
