 Working with photos is easy in uMake through
 the photos panel.
 0:00:04.230,0:00:08.580
 To access the photos panel, first open the
 side panel.
 0:00:08.580,0:00:13.730
 Then select the second option to open the
 photos panel.
 0:00:13.730,0:00:21.430
 Once open you will see three options for My
 photos, Textures, and Atmosphere.
 0:00:21.430,0:00:25.880
 Tapping on My Photos will open up a panel
 with more options.
 0:00:25.880,0:00:33.360
 You can use the camera to take a photo, access
 your photo library, or access your files folder
 0:00:33.360,0:00:35.610
 on your iPad.
 0:00:35.610,0:00:38.200
 We are going to select photos.
 0:00:38.200,0:00:43.240
 To import a photo, tap on the image you want
 to use in your project.
 0:00:43.240,0:00:47.220
 This will import it into your uMake photos
 library.
 0:00:47.220,0:00:52.290
 Once imported, tap and drag the photo into
 your canvas.
 0:00:52.290,0:00:57.340
 Dragging a photo onto a canvas will create
 a new surface with that image.
 0:00:57.340,0:01:02.860
 Dragging the photo onto an existing surface
 will place the image onto that surface.
 0:01:02.860,0:01:08.560
 This may result in image distortion depending
 on the shape of the surface.
 0:01:08.560,0:01:13.320
 When you have a surface selected with an image
 on it, you will notice options in the side
 0:01:13.320,0:01:19.180
 menu to flip the image, repeat the image,
 rotate the image, or clear the image from
 0:01:19.180,0:01:20.610
 the surface.
 0:01:20.610,0:01:25.630
 When you are done placing or editing an image,
 tap the green check mark on the side menu
 0:01:25.630,0:01:29.299
 to exit the photo editing tools.
 0:01:29.299,0:01:34.100
 Imported photos and textures will reside in
 the lower half of the My Photos panel to make
 0:01:34.100,0:01:38.210
 it easier to access the images again if needed.
 0:01:38.210,0:01:43.880
 Tapping ‘clear’ in the upper right will
 clear previously used images.
 0:01:43.880,0:01:48.780
 Try importing and working with some images
 to get a better feel for how using images
 0:01:48.780,0:01:50.330
 can help you create in uMake.
