New Feature: Image Export

New Feature: Image Export

Overview
With the new Image Export feature, you can easily save images from your projects to use anywhere. This in-app upgrade ($5.99) lets you export each page or photo in your project as a standard JPEG image file. To use the export feature, click the Preview or Save button on the Edit screen.

When you purchase the upgrade, the features will be added to your account and ready for immediate use.

Benefits:

  • Import the image into another app, such as Word or Powerpoint.
  • Use the creative tools in this program for everyday photo editing
  • Attach the image in an email
  • Post the image directly to blogs and social media sites
  • Take the exported image to a local printing service


Tip:
The Image Export feature is an addition to the standard Save and Share features. With the Share feature, you create a link to an online copy of your project. People with the link can view and edit the copy. With Image Export, you save a single, finished image of your project instead.

A Guide to Export Settings
Here are some tips on using the Size and Quality controls to get the ideal output file.

Preset Menu:

  • Full Size: This sets your output file to the maximum size (100%).
  • Email Small: This sets your output file to dimensions and a quality level optimized for quick emails (640 pixels wide, 80% JPEG quality).
  • Email Large: This sets your output file to dimensions and a quality level ideal for detailed email, websites, and social media (800 pixels wide, 80% JPEG quality).
  • Highest Quality: This sets your output file to the maximum dimensions and quality level. Ideal for submitting to printing services.

JPEG Quality Slider
The JPEG compression process creates smaller files by reducing the image quality. A setting of 80 is a good compromise: The quality looks very close to the original, yet the file transfers faster over the internet and takes much less space on your computer.

Size Slider
This setting controls the size of the exported image in pixels (dots). Dimensions are shown below the slider. Typically a width of 800 pixels is ideal for posting to social media. For printing, choose the maximum size (100 on the slider).
