* Right-clic ing on the canvas captures the color. Shift + Right-dragging captures the image of the dragged area. * Freehand drawing with Shift ey down draws only the first stro e. * Selection: After selection, right-clic ing on the selected area pops up the sub-menu. * Palette: Left-clic chooses colors. Right-clic registers colors. Single colors or bitmaps can be registered and used. There are two inds of gradations: rectangular and straightline. * On straightline gradation palette, draggin from the ">" button toward the right adds a color, and dragging a color pointer toward the ">" button erases the color. * Left-clic ing on figures in palettes adds and right-clic ing substracts. You can alter figures by directly dragging the pointing lines in palettes. Right-clic ing draws the lines toward the mouse pointer. * Left-dragging with CTRL ey down moves the top layer among the ones where the mouse pointer lies. Left-dragging with CTRL and SHIFT eys down moves the current layer. * Pasting as a new layer is influenced by the settings of Tone Filter and Transparency control. * Filling with a color also gets influenced by Tone Filter. * Layers: A layer consists of three planes: Image, Mas , and Transparency. Copy a layer into the clipboard and all the three planes are copied. Paste is also done affected by transparency and selection of the original image. When you paste onto the Mas Plane, or Transparency Plane, only the contrast information is pasted. Pasted on a new layer, all the three planes are maintained exactly as the original layer. * Registering bitmaps to the palette ma es duplicates of the original images in the "palette" folder, which means registering many big size images to the palette will result in consuming a lot of hard dis space. * Help files do not come with this program. You need to download a separate file from the Pixia website. ________________________________________________________________________ ** Liability ** ________________________________________________________________________ * In no event shall the author of this Software be liable for
