Resizing the Canvas

The canvas is the area behind an image, the element that the image rests on. When you capture an image, the canvas is automatically the same size as the image itself. If you create a new blank image, the canvas size is 600 x 600 pixels. Either way, you can resize the canvas whenever necessary. You can do this on the individual image, or you can set the canvas size on a profile.

You can also manually resize the canvas using handles around its edge by dragging the canvas edges to your desired size, and you can choose to expand the canvas automatically if you place objects (e.g., callouts, shapes, text boxes) outside of the canvas boundaries.

If the image is resized for the output (e.g., on the Format tab), the canvas size is adjusted automatically.
