A new window opens up with some tools we can use to edit the image. The first group of tools lets us adjust the brightness, contrast, transparency, and color of the image. We could also make the image gray scale or invert the colors.

The second group of tools lets you flip the image, rotate it 90 degrees in either direction, or crop it.

  • Edit the image using the tools in the Resize / Crop Image window.
