Despite the software has a simple interface, it’s not easy to learn the functionality during the first launch. The main menu is on the top part of the screen. There you’ll find the 3D tab that allows you create cube or globe using your image and load 3D models. The Browser tab will help you to view picture galleries. If you want to apply visual effects to your photo, you should try to use Filter tab. Besides, this tab includes Photoshop 8BF filter manager. You can install plugins to get effects as in Adobe Photoshop. If you want to create a GIF file, add new layers for animation in the Layer Manager and open GIF Animation tab. You are allowed to make a GIF using layers. If you want to adjust color balance, you should open the Layer Manager and choose this option. Also, rotation, resizing and flip operation are available there.
