Hi there, guys. In today's video flexi starter, we're gonna be looking at importing bit map Fox. But let's have a quick intro first. Mm. So today's video can be final softwaretraining.co.za y. You guys want, as we do have a variety of different software to recover, and also we upload videos daily. So just by different new content, Otherwise we're back on the programme. Yeah. Now, the BMP for far format is also quite popular. The known as but Okay. But before we go into that, let's just quickly just a quick reminder rather that, uh, this is part of a miniseries, like importing files. So, uh, I will leave relevant links in description so you can follow along so back to the bit map. Also, the abatement file format is it's a basic rights that you can say type image that stores, uh, personal information and culture and so forth. But it is also quite popular among windows. So for most of you that's been using windows and a few different operating systems, you'll know that this is quite popular among windows so otherwise to import it where first of all we can do is we go to our standard tube on top here. And then we navigate to the little, um, save icon that has an arrow point out of paper over your mouth over this icon, it will say import and then alternatively close for a while. And then you never get import. Once we click this or pop up to import options. Now you want to navigate where your father's saved your butt map. And if you do not see your bit map, you can always go on the bottom two files of type. And then, um, set this two bit map or that bmp As you say, they even named your Windows bit map. But in any case, so after you've located your file, then with this preview button on, you can see a preview of what you have selected in case you don't have your thumbnails like me. And then we have this link option. No, I've covered this in a few videos before, but we'll just quickly run through again. So with link on, it will just put a link to the actual file in your image. So the image is seen in your file. It's not actually embedded. So if you move your main project file, copy it somewhere else without copying the image along in the folder structure. This image will not be there. Uh, if you click this off well embedded. So that means you will be saved into your project file or make your project file a little bit larger, The file size. But that is great. If you're sending it to, let's say, a printer or cut a company And the image is part of the final design. Linking is nice for using this reference. Otherwise, we click import here, or give us this blue little direct angle to kind of where you want to place your image. So I'm gonna place here and then there you go. I got a bit map imported as simple as that. Otherwise, if we're here to softwaretraining.co.za Uh um, like I mentioned, we've got a variety of things to do cover here. And also you can search for training videos on top here to the right. So if you can isolate your search and then if you don't find what you're looking for, you can always go here, request a training video, and then we will make that for you. But otherwise thanks, guys, for watching and cheers
