Understanding & Adjusting Photo Properties

Once you've selected the image file you want to import, you will see a Properties modal window that allows you to adjust the following settings:

  • Frame: Zooms in to fill the screen and removes the frame if the image is smaller than the screen.

  • Edge Spreading: Fills the screen by spreading the outer edges of the image.

  • Outer Color: Allows you to set the background color (if your image doesn't take up the entire screen).

When you are satisfied with the settings, tap Done in the top-right corner of the Video Properties window. Your video will appear in your Sources / Production panel.
