The Picture Editor - Part 2

NOTE: This feature is only available with Little Reader Pro.

 

Other Major Editing Options

The Picture Editor also has other editing options that allow you to change your images:

  • Brightness

    Make an image lighter or darker by adjusting the brightness, contrast and gamma of your image. This function allows you to make parts of it stand out or blend in more.

  • Color

    Adjust specific colors or adjust the saturation of your image.

  • Auto

    This will automatically adjust your image's color and brightness to achieve the best contrast between focus image and background possible.

  • Sharpen

    Using this function makes edges stand out more distinctly in an image.

 

Drawing Options

The Picture Editor has many very easy to use drawing options that create lively and vibrant strokes on your photo.

 

How to use the Pencil Tool

Manually draw free-form shapes using the mouse as your pencil and the document as your paper. This is useful in creating irregularly shaped objects.

    1. Click on the Pencil button.
    2. Choose the pencil width and pencil color in the side panel. (You cannot change this after you have drawn it)
    3. Draw on the image.
    4. When you have finished drawing, click Done.

 

How to use the Arrow Tool

    1. Draw arrows in varying colors, lengths and thickness with this function. This is particularly useful to draw your child's attention, especially in a busy image.
    2. Click on the Arrow button.
    3. Choose the arrow width and color in the side panel.
    4. Decide where you would like the arrow to start (the end without the pointer), click and drag this to where you would like your arrow to point.
    5. Let go when you are satisfied with it.
    6. When you have finished drawing, click Done.

 

How to use the Ellipse Tool

    1. Draw an oval or oblong over the image to highlight a specific area of the picture. You may also choose to fill the shape with a color, creating a full colored ellipse on your image.
    2. Click on the Ellipse button.
    3. Choose the pen width and color in the side panel.
    4. Choose whether or not to fill the ellipse with color by checking the box beside Fill Color.
    5. Decide where you would like to position the circle or ellipse (starting from the top left), click and drag this to adjust the size and shape of the ellipse.
    6. Let go when you are satisfied with it.
    7. Click Done.

 

How to use the Rectangle Tool

    1. Draw a rectangle over the image to highlight a specific area of the picture. You may also choose to fill the shape with a color, creating a full colored rectangle on your image.
    2. Click on the Rectangle button.
    3. Choose the pen width and color in the side panel.
    4. Then you can choose whether or not to fill the rectangle with color or not by checking the box beside Fill Color.
    5. Decide where you would like to position the rectangle (starting from the top left corner), click and drag this to adjust the size and shape of the rectangle.
    6. Let go when you are satisfied with it.
    7. Click Done.

 

The Draw Tool Layer

A Draw Tool Layer (.DTL) is a separate file which is laid over your original picture, very much like a transparent piece of paper over your photo. This layer is where you draw on all of your additional graphics in the Picture Editor, and you can always choose to take away everything you've drawn onto your original picture by using the Remove Draw Layer button.
