Edit photographic images you add to your design canvas in the Venngage Editor with crop, resize, shape crop, rotate and opacity tools.
Select the image and use the bounding box
Move the image by clicking and dragging it into position on the canvas. For more precise positioning, click on the image to select it and use your arrow keys to nudge it into place.
The bounding box that appears around the image when you select it has three main tools: resize, rotate and crop.
Resize using the square handles in the corners of the bounding box.
Rotate with the circular arrow that appears at the top of the bounding box.
Crop the image with the long rectangular handles on the tops and sides of the bounding box.
How do I resize or rotate images?
Drag the corner handles of the bounding box to make the image proportionally larger or smaller.
Rotate the image by clicking and holding the circular arrow icon on the bounding box. This appears at the top of the image, and your cursor will appear as two arrows in a circle you're using the tool.
How do I crop an image?
Crop an image by dragging its side handles inward. This creates a frame that displays the visible area of the image.
Reposition the visible area of the image by clicking 'Crop' in the top toolbar. The entire image becomes visible, with the part of the image that appears in the visible area highlighted and the rest of the image in shadow. Click on the image inside the visible area and drag it into position.
How do I crop an image to a shape?
Crop an image into a pre-defined shape from the top toolbar.
Select the image. In the Frame Type drop-down menu in the top toolbar, select a shape and click to apply it.
Adjust how the image looks in the shape frame: select the image, then click Crop in the top toolbar and click and drag the image so that it appears in the frame the way you want.
How do I change the image opacity?
Customize the opacity of an image to change its appearance, letting colors and textures from the background filter through.
Click the image to select it. Click on Opacity in the top toolbar and choose a number.
Lower numbers make the image more transparent; higher numbers make it more opaque.
Click anywhere outside of the Opacity menu to confirm the change.
Placing a colored shape or other element behind an image with lower opacity can create an interesting visual effect. You can also use a semi-transparent photo as a background image for your entire canvas, or create a gradient filter image background with a photo and a gradient background.
