You will be prompted to confirm that you have copyright to use the image.

The image will begin uploading.  Once the image is finished uploading, an image thumbnail will appear in the Image Tab on the left side of the application. 

To place the image on the case, left click and hold on the image and drag it onto the case in the middle of the screen. 

 

Ensure the picture fills the entire Box surrounding the case within the application.  This box represents the sides of the case where your design will wrap around.  Note: If your image is not large enough or is an odd size, you can use a Background to fill the Box.

 

Background Color:  To fill the case with a background color, use the color eye dropper to select a color on the color wheel on the left side of the tool.

 

Saturation Slider:  This controls the Saturation of Color of the color wheel.  To make the color more saturated/vibrancy, slide the Saturation slider to the right. To reduce the color saturation or to mute the colors, slide the Saturation slider  to the left.

 

Brightness Slider:  This controls the brightness of the colors within the Color Wheel.  To brighten the colors, slide the brightness slider to the right. To darken the colors, slide the brightness slider to the left.

Text:  Select the Add Text button. Enter your text in the box in the right side menu (directly below the button). You may select a different font, color, and/or size by highlighting your text and selecting the desired styles/effects.  You may then move, resize and/ or rotate your text box within your design in the same way as an image (as described above).

 

Inner Image Opacity Meter:  This feature allows you to adjust the transparency of an image/text/texture.  Select the Image/Text/Texture you wish to adjust by left clicking on it to make it active, and then move the slider to adjust the desired transparency level.  This is a useful feature if you are using multiple images and you wish to blend those images together, or make one image more dominant.
