Place Texture

Create a new file

From “File” menu, click “New”.
“Save Settings” window appears, and enter the pixels for Width and Height.
It is recommended to set up the size according to the guide image.

Here we have an example with the guide image of 1024 x 1024, so make a new file with a little larger size of 1000 x 1024.

If you click the frame in background color on the lower left of the canvas pallet, a color picker appears to select the color of your choice.






Place the guide image

First, place the guide image on the canvas.

Drag and drop the raster guide image on the Modeler tool, it will be loaded and “Image Settings” window appears on the screen.
Make sure that “guide image” is selected for “Purpose”, and “Fast” is selected for “Type”, and click "OK".

The image is stored in “Guide image” parts of “Parts” pallet.
Adjust the size, position, and opacity (25% as a default) if needed.


After placing the guide image, it is recommended to lock “Guide image” parts not to interfere when placing other Texture.




Tips
After adding a check mark in “Show the Grid” check box which you can select from “Show” menu, you will be able to place a guide image using grid’s line that will be convenient in the following procedure like creating symmetrical movement as well.
