If you are working with images and bitmaps within the program, know how to add them is where to start.
Next to importing images and bitmaps, is being able to scale them to the right size to fit the design better.

Yes. Hey, guys, in today's video flexi starter, we're gonna be looking at working with maps, and we're going to be importing and scaling it with the first video. But before that, let's have a quick intro first. Yeah, uh, so today's video can be found on softwaretraining.co.za c o dot z A. We make sure easy to watch problem solving videos also have daily updates. Otherwise, back in the programme. Yeah, just a little note. This is we're going to be about a two part, maybe three part miniseries on working with maps. And, uh, I will leave relevant links in the description, and you can actually follow it along. So now when it comes to importing the bit map, um, there's two ways you can go about it. You can simply just drag and drop it from your file browser. Or what you can do is you go to your top main menu, click on file and we navigate to find input. Then you navigate to where your father is located. I just made a smaller version so we don't blow up the whole screen here with the image, and then, for some reason, you do not see it. Then just make sure your file type is say to readable, all readable. It's said to something which it will not see for. It's not the same format ones here. So just on top or readable, select your file. And then on the right here, we've got two options. We can obviously preview it. So in case your thumbnails are not on like mine, another option is to link it. So then it's not directly in your file but linked towards. And I'm gonna leave mine off and we can import here. It's gonna give you this little bounding box to where you want to implicate me, too. You're gonna click here for now, As you can see here, we've got our image. So now what we're gonna do in this first video, we're just gonna look at some basic ways of scaling it. And then the next video, we'll look at re sampling it. So now, to set the scale, you can simply just use these control points. Click hold your left mouse button and scale it. If for some reason, it scales it not proportionately like this. I mean, like this. Then just keep shifting so if it's scaling it like there's not proportionately keep shifting and or readjust, another way we can do this is if we open our design central panel, which is your next to the undo and redo its the first icon next to them, to the right click that we've got our designs Central year at the bottom. Here we can see we've got proportional enabled. So that means if I scale, um, with all the height, it's gonna keep it proportional to each other. We select that they were to scale is individually, but I would correct, man, if it's a bit map, keep that enabled. So then and this is the other way we can do it so we can simply just scale it from here. Uh, because proportional on whether we do the with or the height they both will be scared and at the bottom. Here we've got the origin, or when it's scaling, too. So let's say we want to scale up to the top left corner, click on that little icon, and then now we scale it or scale it towards that corner. No, you scale it to the size you want it and then you don't even have to click inter or hit into nothing. And you can just simply move it to where you want it. And yeah, there we go. That is ready. So now, like I mentioned in the next video, we're gonna be looking at re sampling this. So if you wanted to reduce the quality as well because at the moment, this is still the original quality it was when we imported. It just looks smaller. But for that we head into another video. So for now, if you guys head to softwaretraining.co.za uh, you guys don't know if you've got a variety of different Softwares would you cover? And also, you can isolate your search on the top of right. If you do not, however, find the video looking for you can always go here, request a training video, and then we'll make that video for you. But otherwise thanks, guys, for watching and cheers
