1) First we will zoom in on the image.
Holding down your left mouse button, draw a square to match what you see in this image. If the square is not where you want it to be, maybe off center a bit, you can left click inside the square & holding the mouse button down, drag the square where ever you would like it.
Once you have selected the part of the image that you wish to zoom in on, either click on the magnifying icon on the side toolbar, or hit enter on the keyboard.
2) Filters & Julia mode. Time to change the image again! There are many, many "filters" to experiment with in this program. For now, select "Filter-3, 03 "Moving Average 1" from the toolbar, and allow the new image to be drawn.
This is a good time to show you how to save an image. Right click over the image, and then select "Save As" from the menu that pops up. Name the file, and choose save. Now if you make changes and are unhappy, you can go back and open this stage of the image. Do this frequently, or you will lose your images forever! Name each file differently every time you save an image, and you will then have copies of every step.
3) Let's move on. Holding your left mouse button down, draw another square to match the image, and then select "Julia" mode icon on the side toolbar. (Orange icon).
Julia mode can only be used once on an image until it is re-drawn using one of the draw parameters, or the unique editor, which we'll cover later. You can still change other parameters such as color, filters etc. as well as zooming in or out. It will also create a totally different image, depending on what part of the image you select to zoom in on.
I have written an entire tutorial dealing with this feature & would recommend going through that tutorial once you are comfortable with all of the basic features that I cover here.
4) Note: This is where your result may look different than mine, this depends entirely on where you draw your square over the image. Even a slight change, up, down, right, or left, will produce a different result.
Don't worry if it is not exact, remember, the purpose of this tutorial is not to reproduce this image, but to teach you how to use the program, and how these functions can change & modify the image.
Remember what we started with a few steps back? Quite different already! Let's move on!
