In Canvas X Draw there are several ways to import raster images into your document. You can open an image file directly, place an image in your document, or import the image. When you use the Import command, the Import dialog box filters the files you see, so that you can easily find your image files.
When you export an image from a Canvas X Draw document, Canvas X Draw creates a file on disk from a single selected paint object. Using Export is similar to using Save As, except that you must select a paint object before you choose Export.
Images in Edit mode can't be exported. Press Esc to exit Edit mode.
In the Export Image dialog box, type a file name, select a location for the exported file, and then click Save.
If the image mode of the selected paint object is not supported by the chosen format, the Render Image dialog box appears. In the dialog box, select an image format supported by the file format. If an image mode is not available in the Mode menu, the selected file format does not support that mode. (See Rendering Objects and Images for more information.)
EXIF (Exchangeable Image File) is a format that stores information in digital images. Almost all new digital cameras use EXIF to store information on the image such as shutter speed, exposure compensation, F number, what metering system was used, if a flash was used, ISO number, date and time the image was taken, white balance, auxiliary lenses that were used, and resolution.
Canvas X Draw provides quick and easy access to most of the information that is attached to these images.
If the image does not contain any EXIF information, the DCS information (EXIF) option is not available.
When you export an image, if you choose JPEG (8-bit/channel) or TIFF (8-bit/channel or 16-bit/channel) format, you can export the EXIF information with the image. (See Creating Web Pages from Canvas X Draw Documents.) However, the EXIF data is only preserved if you have not made changes to the image in the Canvas X Draw document, or if you have made changes to the image's pixels, such as if you've fixed red eye. If you have made other changes to the image, such as rotated, skewed, or adjusted the transparency, or if you have composited other objects with the image, the EXIF information is not preserved.
