Chapter 10. Fine-Tuning Images > Modifying Images

Modifying Images

Unless you're deliberately trying to achieve a muddied look, every image that you scan requires color correction (if it's a color image), tonal correction, and sharpening. Even synthetic pictures created with a painting program may require these adjustments. However, the place to do these things is in an image-editing program like Adobe Photoshop. Nonetheless, XPress gives you a few image-editing controls that may be useful, especially if you're looking for a special effect. Here's what you can do to a bitmapped image.

  • Replace its contrast curve with preset high-contrast or posterized effects.

  • Apply a custom contrast curve.

  • Invert the image.

  • Add a clipping path to create a silhouette.

  • Change the picture's on-screen or printed resolution.

  • Apply a color or tint to the picture.

  • Change the picture's halftoning parameters.
