  • Rotate images

    Images from digital cameras always have the same aspect ratio. If a photo is taken upright, the subject will later be shown in a horizontal position in the image. In general, cameras have a position sensor. Instead of rotating the image correspondingly, they will write the positioning information to the image. With this setting, the positioning information will be evaluated by Intrexx and the image will then be rotated as necessary.

  • Maximum size: Width / Height

    The image size is limited to the pixel value entered here.

    • Crop image

      Allows the width and height of the image to be adjusted to the aspect ratio of the button.

      • Enlarge smaller images

        Smaller images will be enlarged up to the stated maximum size.

    • Optimize file size for thumbnails (reduce)

      Reduces the file size for the sake of increasing the application page's loading time.

  • Adjust control size to maximum size

    If the size of the button is changed on the workspace, the current width and height are automatically written in the general properties. If this setting is not active, these values and the size of the control on the workspace will not be synchronized.
