  3. While having an image selected in the files area of the Remote File Explorer window, you click the Edit Image button in the Remote File Explorer window:

 

The D-Web Image Editor window looks like the user interface below:

 

The operations that you can perform to edit an image are accessible through the buttons on the left:
 

  • Crop/Resize
           

  • Rotate Left/Right
           

  • Flip Vertically/Horizontally
           

  • Blur/Sharpen
           

  • Increase/Decrease Contrast
           

  • Increase/Decrease Brightness
           

  • Compress Image
           

  • Zoom In/Out
           

  • Reset Zoom
           

  • Reset

 

Note: Except for the zooming commands, when altering an image through any of the other ones, the changes will take place server-side (the image on the server will be modified).

 

In the lower part of the interface, you are offered some information about the current image (path, name, dimensions, size):

 

To learn how to use each control in the Image Editor window, read the instructions below:

  1. When clicking the Crop button, a 100 pixels/100 pixels square is displayed on top of your picture:


                         
    You can change its position by dragging it around, and its dimensions by using either its handlers, or the Width and Height text boxes that show in the lower part of the interface:


                         

    • Once you click the Apply button near the text boxes, the image part that is covered by the rectangle will be cut out from the initial picture and will become the new picture.

    • The Cancel button annuls the crop operation.

  2. When clicking the Resize button, two text boxes (Width and Height) will show in the lower part of the interface, displaying the image dimensions (in pixels):


                         

    • You can modify the image size by using the Width and Height text boxes, and the Keep Aspect Ratio checkbox (similar to the Constrain control) as explained here.

    • Once you click the Apply button near the text boxes, the image will be resized according to the values entered for its width and height.

    • The Cancel button annuls the resize operation.

  3. Click the Rotate Left button if you want to rotate the current image to the left:


                         
    Note:
    The operation was applied when the image was in the status displayed here. This same observation remains available for the next examples (steps 4 - 15).

  4. Click the Rotate Right button if you want to rotate the current image to the right:


                         

  5. Click the Flip Vertically button to flip the image with 180 degrees vertically (the new image shown will be the old one seen in a horizontal mirror):


                        

  6. Click the Flip Horizontally button to flip the image with 180 degrees horizontally (the new image shown will be the old one seen in a vertical mirror):


                       

  7. Click the Blur button to give the current image a blurry effect:


                       

  8. Click the Sharpen button to give the current image a sharp effect:


                       

  9. Click the Increase Contrast button to secure more contrast in the current image:


                       
    Note:
    To obtain the image above, the Increase Contrast button was pressed twice (to make the effect clearer).

  10. Click the Decrease Contrast button to secure less contrast in the current image:


                       
    Note:
    To obtain the image above, the Decrease Contrast button was pressed twice (to make the effect clearer).

  11. Click the Increase Brightness button to secure more brightness in the current image:


                       

  12. Click the Decrease Brightness button to secure less brightness in the current image:


                       

  13. Click the Compress Image button to modify the image quality in order for its size (in kb) to decrease. You will notice in the lower part of the interface the Quality text box, where you can enter a number between 1 and 99. This number represents how many percents from the initial quality you want the quality of the modified image to be:


                       

    • The default value of the Quality text box is 80. Say you enter 20; the compressed image will look like this:


                         

    • Once you click the Apply button near the text box, the image will be compressed according to the value entered in the Quality text box.

    • The Cancel button annuls the compress operation.

  14. Click the Zoom In button to enlarge the image proportionally. Each click will increase the image a little more. This operation is used when you need to see certain image details up close:


                       
    Note:
    To obtain the image above, the Zoom In button was pressed four times.

  15. Click the Zoom Out button to diminish the image proportionally. Each click will decrease the image a little more:


                       
    Note:
    To obtain the image above, the Zoom Out button was pressed four times.

  16. The Reset Zoom button becomes active only after you clicked the Zoom In and Zoom Out buttons for an unequal number of times (the image size is no longer the initial one). Once you click the Reset Zoom button, the image will be brought to its original size.

  17. The Reset button is not active when you first launch the D-Web Image Editor. It becomes active after you perform at least one operation on the image. By clicking it, all the operations that you just performed on the image will be canceled, and the image will be displayed in its initial state.

  18. The Help button on the top-right corner of the interface has the same role as described here, just that it regards the D-Web Image Editor interface.

  19. The OK button changes its label to Finish after you perform the first operation on the image.

    • If you click it while its label is still OK, the window will close (no change was made).

    • By clicking the Finish button, the D-Web Image Editorwindow will close and all the changes that you performed on the selected image will become visible in page.

  20. By clicking the Close button, the D-Web Image Editorwindow will close and no change will be performed on the current image.
