The IMAGES feature lets you access the photos in your iPhone photo album, including the Camera Roll (where photos taken with the iPhone camera are placed, as well as screen-captured images) and other albums created and sync'd using iTunes.

Tap the IMAGES button (1) on the MAIN TOOLBAR and a popover appears. You can select "Get from Photo Album" (2) if you wish to import a photo from the photo album, or "Camera" (3), if you wish to take a new photo.

If you select "Get from Photo Album", the iPhone photo album selection appears and you can select the album from which to choose your photo.

Select a photo from any albm. You can then choose to open the photo to "Fit screen" (2) or as a "Re-sizeable image" in the SELECT BOX (3).

Get picture to fit screen

If you had selected "Fit screen", the photo will be pasted to fit the screen (1), keeping its original proportions. The photo then becomes part of the screen image.

In the image on the left, the original photo was taken in landscape mode and is being imported while fotoCrop is in portrait mode.

Get picture as re-sizeable image

If you had chosen to open the photo as a "Re-sizeable image" ", the photo will be opened in SELECT MODE and placed in the SELECT BOX which may be re-sized and positioned as necessary.

The SELECT MODE TOOLBAR (1) is displayed.

You can drag the image in the SELECT BOX to re-position it.

Tap the PASTE button (2) when you have sized and positioned the image as required.

Drag one of the ARROWHEAD HANDLES to re-size the image. If you drag one of the corner handles, the image proportions will be kept.

Drag a DOT handle instead of an ARROWHEAD to reposition the image. This is sometimes more convenient and accurate than dragging the box itself. Further, the side and top handles constrain the re-positioning in the horizontal and vertical directions respectively.

You can rotate the image in the SELECT BOX by adjusting one of the rotation controls in (1) and (2).

You can also use the ROTATE buttons (3) to precisely change the rotation.
