One of the beauties of Pressto! is that it allows you to set the exact page layout you want, positioning images (and text) precisely where you want them. Each image is an object within the page… Pressto! doesn’t “rasterize” the page creating a big, heavy image to display. This is very powerful as the objects can be combined and effects can be applied.
Multilayered images and moving backgrounds on pages
Images can be placed on top of each other and backgrounds can have subtle movements to make the pages come alive.
Image Blend effect
Pressto! supports image blending with dozens of blending modes.
Darken – Normal – Multiply – Screen – Overlay – Lighten – Color Dodge
Color Burn – Soft Light – Hard Light – Difference – Exclusion – Hue – Saturation
Color - Luminosity - Clear - Copy – Source In – Source Out – Source Atop
Destination Over – Destination In – Destination Out – Destination Atop
XOR – Plus Darker – Plus Lighter
Two zooming methods are supported:
For smaller images the most effective method is “pinch to zoom”.
When you want to display really big images efficiently you may want to use “tiled images”, a method commonly used for maps online that improves performance and memory management at any reduction the user wants.
When zooming an image with “pinch to zoom” the user can also freely rotate the image on screen with a clockwise or counterclockwise movement of both fingers.
Pressto allows positioning as many Image Galleries as you want anywhere on any page. Galleries can be full screen or smaller. The reader can view images in the gallery just by swiping right or left. You may assign names to images that may be displayed and even an indicator that shows the number of images in the Gallery.
Pressto!’s Free Move option for Images allows readers to reposition the image anywhere they want by dragging them with their fingers.
