squares on the left of the Color Palette show you the active (top) and alternative
(bottom) colors. You can change the alternative color to the active color simply by

- allows all the colors on the same layer to be shifted by the same degree (hue), and adjusts the
intensity of the colors (saturation).
- can be used to adjust the highlight, midtones, and shadow of the selected layer. It offers more
control than Brightness/Contrast.
- decreases the contrast between adjacent pixels, creating a fuzzy effect over the entire layer.
- pixelates the entire layer, eliminating smoother edges in the image.
- evenly redistributes the grayscale or color values of the pixels in an image. The effects are varied
depending on the image, but in general, the lines in the highlight and shadow areas will be
sharpened.
- inverts the grayscale or color brightness values for the entire layer. This will make your image look
like a photographic negative.
Effects
PhotoImpression includes a variety of special effects to transform images in a number of
interesting ways. Click on a desired effect to preview it on your image. You can use the Intensity
slider to adjust the intensity of the effect. To keep the effect, click Apply. To cancel, choose any
other effect or click a different button.

highlight around the thumbnail. Toggling the green light above the thumbnail on and off displays

purchase of the Software for a period of ninety (90) days (“Warranty Period”), provided that the Software is properly installed on approved
hardware and operated as contemplated in its documentation. D-Link further warrants that, during the Warranty Period, the magnetic
media on which D-Link delivers the Software will be free of physical defects. D-Link’s sole obligation shall be to replace the nonconforming Software (or defective media) with software that substantially conforms to D-Link’s functional specifications for the Software
or to refund at D-Link’s sole discretion. Except as otherwise agreed by D-Link in writing, the replacement Software is provided only to the
original licensee, and is subject to the terms and conditions of the license granted by D-Link for the Software. Software will be warranted
for the remainder of the original Warranty Period from the date or original retail purchase. If a material non-conformance is incapable of
correction, or if D-Link determines in its sole discretion that it is not practical to replace the non-conforming Software, the price paid by
the original licensee for the non-conforming Software will be refunded by D-Link; provided that the non-conforming Software (and all
copies thereof) is first returned to D-Link. The license granted respecting any Software for which a refund is given automatically
terminates.
Non-Applicability of Warranty: The Limited Warranty provided hereunder for hardware and software of D-Link’s products, will
not be applied to and does not cover any product purchased through the inventory clearance or liquidation sale or other sales in which
28
D-Link, the sellers, or the liquidators expressly disclaim their warranty obligation pertaining to the product and in that case, the product
is being sold “As-Is” without any warranty whatsoever including, without limitation, the Limited Warranty as described herein,
notwithstanding anything stated herein to the contrary.
Submitting A Claim: Any claim under this limited warranty must be submitted in writing before the end of the Warranty Period to an
Authorized D-Link Service Office.
·
The customer must submit as part of the claim (a written description of the Hardware defect or Software nonconformance) in
sufficient detail to allow D-Link to confirm the same.
·
The original product owner must obtain a Return Material Authorization (“RMA”) number from the Authorized D-Link Service
Office and, if requested, provide written proof of purchase of the product (such as a copy of the dated purchase invoice for the
product) before the warranty service is provided.
·
After an RMA number is issued, the defective product must be packaged securely in the original or other suitable shipping
package to ensure that it will not be damaged in transit, and the RMA number must be prominently marked on the outside of
the package. Do not include any manuals or accessories in the shipping package. D-Link will only replace the defective
portion of the Product and will not ship back any accessories.
·
The customer is responsible for all shipping charges to D-Link. No Cash on Delivery (“COD”) is allowed. Products sent COD
will either be rejected by D-Link or become the property of D-Link. Products should be fully insured by the customer and
shipped to D-Link Systems, Inc., 17595 Mt. Herrmann, Fountain Valley, CA 92708. D-Link will not be held responsible
for any packages that are lost in transit to D-Link. The repaired or replaced packages will be shipped via UPS Ground or any
common carrier selected by D-Link, with shipping charges prepaid. Expedited shipping is available if shipping charges are
prepaid by the customer.
D-Link may reject or return any product that is not packaged and shipped in strict compliance with the foregoing requirements, or for
which an RMA number is not visible from the outside of the package. The product owner agrees to pay D-Link’s reasonable handling and
return shipping charges for any product that is not packaged and shipped in accordance with the foregoing requirements, or that is
determined by D-Link not to be defective or non-conforming.
What Is Not Covered: This limited warranty provided by D-Link does not cover: Products, if in D-Link’s judgment, have been subjected
to abuse, accident, alteration, modification, tampering, negligence, misuse, faulty installation, lack of reasonable care, repair or service
in any way that is not contemplated in the documentation for the product, or if the model or serial number has been altered, tampered
with, defaced or removed; Initial installation, installation and removal of the product for repair, and shipping costs; Operational adjustments
covered in the operating manual for the product, and normal maintenance; Damage that occurs in shipment, due to act of God, failures
due to power surge, and cosmetic damage; Any hardware, software, firmware or other products or services provided by anyone other
than D-Link; Products that have been purchased from inventory clearance or liquidation sales or other sales in which D-Link, the sellers,
or the liquidators expressly disclaim their warranty obligation pertaining to the product. Repair by anyone other than D-Link or an
Authorized D-Link Service Office will void this Warranty.
Disclaimer of Other Warranties: EXCEPT FOR THE LIMITED WARRANTY SPECIFIED HEREIN, THE PRODUCT IS PROVIDED
“AS-IS” WITHOUT ANY WARRANTY OF ANY KIND WHATSOEVER INCLUDING, WITHOUT LIMITATION, ANY WARRANTY OF
MERCHANTABILITY, FITNESS FOR A PARTICULAR PURPOSE AND NON-INFRINGEMENT. IF ANY IMPLIED WARRANTY CANNOT
BE DISCLAIMED IN ANY TERRITORY WHERE A PRODUCT IS SOLD, THE DURATION OF SUCH IMPLIED WARRANTY SHALL BE
LIMITED TO NINETY (90) DAYS. EXCEPT AS EXPRESSLY COVERED UNDER THE LIMITED WARRANTY PROVIDED HEREIN, THE
ENTIRE RISK AS TO THE QUALITY, SELECTION AND PERFORMANCE OF THE PRODUCT IS WITH THE PURCHASER OF THE
PRODUCT.

Limitation of Liability: TO THE MAXIMUM EXTENT PERMITTED BY LAW, D-LINK IS NOT LIABLE UNDER ANY CONTRACT,
NEGLIGENCE, STRICT LIABILITY OR OTHER LEGAL OR EQUITABLE THEORY FOR ANY LOSS OF USE OF THE PRODUCT,

(INCLUDING, BUT NOT LIMITED TO, DAMAGES FOR LOSS OF GOODWILL, LOSS OF REVENUE OR PROFIT, WORK STOPPAGE,
COMPUTER FAILURE OR MALFUNCTION, FAILURE OF OTHER EQUIPMENT OR COMPUTER PROGRAMS TO WHICH D-LINK’S
PRODUCT IS CONNECTED WITH, LOSS OF INFORMATION OR DATA CONTAINED IN, STORED ON, OR INTEGRATED WITH ANY

WARRANTY SERVICE, OR ARISING OUT OF ANY BREACH OF THIS LIMITED WARRANTY, EVEN IF D-LINK HAS BEEN ADVISED
OF THE POSSIBILITY OF SUCH DAMAGES. THE SOLE REMEDY FOR A BREACH OF THE FOREGOING LIMITED WARRANTY IS
REPAIR, REPLACEMENT OR REFUND OF THE DEFECTIVE OR NON-CONFORMING PRODUCT. THE MAXIMUM LIABILITY OF DLINK UNDER THIS WARRANTY IS LIMITED TO THE PURCHASE PRICE OF THE PRODUCT COVERED BY THE WARRANTY. THE
FOREGOING EXPRESS WRITTEN WARRANTIES AND REMEDIES ARE EXCLUSIVE AND ARE IN LIEU OF ANY OTHER WARRANTIES
OR REMEDIES, EXPRESS, IMPLIED OR STATUTORY
Governing Law: This Limited Warranty shall be governed by the laws of the State of California. Some states do not allow exclusion
or limitation of incidental or consequential damages, or limitations on how long an implied warranty lasts, so the foregoing limitations and
exclusions may not apply. This limited warranty provides specific legal rights and the product owner may also have other rights which
vary from state to state.
