  • The Image Drawer

    The Image Drawer
  • The Image Drawer slides up from the bottom of the window whenever you select an individual image, and presents you with tools and information about the image, including:

    View the selected image in the Lightbox
    Add a new Image Tag, viewing existing Image Tags or remove existing image tags
    Add or Modify an Image Caption (used when creating a Scoop Image Gallery)
    View the embedded EXIF image data (if any)
    View Image tools (Add Image to Active Gallery and Move Image to new Directory)
    View a Map of the location where the image was taken (if the EXIF data provides latitude and longitude)
  • Viewing the Image in the Lightbox

    Clicking on the small "Lightbox" icon (the magnifying glass) in the image preview will launch the image in the Scoop "Lightbox". The Lightbox shows you the image at almost full screen so you can get a good look at a larger version of the image:
  • Adding and Removing Image Tags

    In the center of the Image Drawer you will see the Tag section. The Tag section is where new tags can be added to the image, or existing tags can be removed. You can add as many different tags as you would like to an image.
  • You can add multiple tags at once by separating the new tags with commas.
  • Viewing Image Information

    The right side of the Image Drawer contains a tabbed section for displaying information about the image:
  • Adding a Caption to An Image

    When including an image in an online Scoop Image Gallery, you can optionally set an Image Caption for the image - this will be displayed with the image online.
  • Viewing Image EXIF Data

    Below the Caption text entry area you will find a scrollable window that contains the embedded EXIF information for the image (if any). Note: Not all images contain EXIF data, but most cameras (including smart phone cameras) will add EXIF data to your photos when you take them.
  • Viewing Image Location Data

    If your photo contains the Latitude and Longitude (part of the image EXIF data) then you will see a Map Tab that will show you a small Google Maps image with the physical location the image was taken.
  • Using Image Tools

    Within the Tools Tab you will find the ability to:

    Add the image to the Gallery Browser
    Move the image to a different directory
  • Closing the Image Drawer

    You can close the Image Drawer by clicking the small "close" button in the upper right of the Image Drawer.
