  20. Resizing photos.
  21. Photograph is already in the PrintMaster Workspace.

    The pointer will change into an arrow.

  22. Rotating photos.

    Click on layer and Send to Back.

    Place the "crosshair" pointer where you want to add your title, then click the left mouse button and draw a text box.

    Release the mouse button.

    Type in your text.
  28. Formatting Text
  29. Is writing off center? Click on text box to select it and then use the arrow keys on the keyboard to move the text box.

    You can also use the alignment icons to center, left or right justify the text.

    Use the Standard Bar to change the font and font size.
