Add a photo on a page
01. Go to Uploads
Click on the uploads icon.
02. Drag and drop
Choose the image you want to use and drag it onto your page.
Crop a photo
01. Select photo
Click on the photo you want to crop. This will load a menu bar on the top with a set of options that can be done on the photo. To start cropping, click on Crop.
Drag the photo's resize handles or the photo itself to crop it. Don't forget to click on the check mark to save your cropped photo.
Flip a photo
To flip a photo, simply click on the image, go to the menu bar that appears on top and then select Flip Horizontally or Flip Vertically. Here's how it looks like after flipping horizontally:
And then flipping vertically:
Add photo filters
01. Select a photo
Click on a photo element to select it and load its toolbar. Then press the filter button on the left-hand side of the toolbar to open the filter menu.
02. Choose a filter
Along the top of the filter menu you’ll see several preconfigured photo filters to choose from, such as “Cali,” “Drama,” “Epic,” and more. Each filter comes with a tiny preview of what your photo will look like, and you can click the preview to apply the filter to your photo. Click the scroll arrows on either side of the preview images to scroll through more photo filters to choose from.
03. Adjust your filter
Each of the preconfigured photo filters you can click on makes adjustments to the many filter sliders that affect your photo, such as brightness and contrast. This can be helpful when it comes to fix images that are too dark or too bright. If you’d like to view and experiment with all the photo filters, click the advanced options arrow to reveal them all. There’s an endless variety of looks you can create by adjusting these sliders.
04. Change back to normal
After applying photo filters or adjusting the filter sliders, if you’d like to revert back to your original photo, simply click on the very first photo filter on the left, named Normal. This will restore all of the filters to zero, and bring the photo element back to its original state.
05. Copy and paste filter code to reuse the same filter on another image
If you create a truly inspiring photo filter you’d like to save for later or apply to other elements, you can save all your slider configurations by copying the element’s filter code. To find the filter code, open the filter menu and click on the advanced options arrow. Click on the box marked Filter code # to highlight the code, then press CTRL and C to copy it.
To apply the filter code to other elements, open up the filter menu in the same way, click on the Filter code # box, and then press CTRL and V to paste the code into the element.
