8.1. Introduction
Concept
In contrast to the previous functions, the Pictures tray is operative in any of the menus.
In it you can always find the pictures added from the “Pictures” menu or from the
“Editing” menu in a miniature format (see section 3.2 Functions)
The Pictures tray is located in the lower part of the application and it contains all the
pictures in which you want to work. It has a maximum capacity of 50 pictures.
You have to bear in mind that the “Composition” and “Web Album” menus can only
