The image tiling tool creates multiple down-scaled copies of the image in
the area taken by the original image. This feature can be used to create
backgrounds. The meaning of the numeric value is easier to understand
when the image has its original size (Format > Image > Original Size).
By setting 1, you make the image ﬁt the frame exactly. Setting 2 makes the
image as twice as smaller (that is 4 copies per frame). A value smaller than 1,
makes the image bigger than the frame. Resizing the frame itself doesn’t scale
the image inside it.
To tile an image, select it and choose Format > Image > Tile in the menu or
click on Stretch drop-down menu in the Inspector and select Tile. Use the Tile
slide bar to adjust the number of tiles and their size.
Click on the Mask image well in the Inspector and select a mask in the library.
To use a custom mask, click on Custom Mask... below the library and select
a graphic ﬁle.

show the desired part of the image. To exit the crop mode, click once again on
Crop in the context menu.
You can move the image inside its frame when the crop mode is activated.
