8.2.  New View

Revision History
Revision $Revision: 1.9 $ 2006-08-10 scb

The New View command creates a new image window for the current image, which you can set up differently from the existing display. You can create multiple views of any image, which are numbered .1, .2, etc., but only the zoom factor and other viewing options may be different. Any changes, other than viewing changes, which you make in one window also appear in the other displays which show the same image. The new views are not separate image files; they are simply different aspects of the same image. You might use multiple views, for example, if you were working on individual pixels at a high zoom factor. You could then see the effects your changes would have on the image at a normal size.

You can delete a view by closing its window. If you close the last window displaying an image, the image itself is closed. However, if you have made changes to the image which you have not yet saved, you are asked for confirmation.

8.2.1.  Activating the Command

  • You can access this command from the image menubar through View->New View.
