Add or remove images and hotspots in a composition

Expression Studio 1.0

After you have added images to your Deep Zoom Composer project, you can create a composition in the Compose workspace. To change to the Compose workspace from the Import or Export workspace, click Compose Dd409091.a942460f-aa6c-4f8e-8660-875e053c644e(en-us,Expression.10).png at the top of the application window.

tip noteTip

You can add images to your project in the Compose workspace by clicking the Add image button Icon_AddImage.

As you add image and hotspots to your composition, you can layer them by placing one on top of another.

To add an image to a composition

  • In the Composition workspace, drag the image you want to add from the Images panel to the artboard. The image now has resizing handles that you can use to resize it proportionally in any direction.

    You can also add multiple images to your composition. Hold CTRL and click multiple images to select them, or hold SHIFT and click a range of images to select them, and then drag them to the artboard.

    tip noteTip

    You can also add a hotspot to your composition by clicking the Add hotspot icon Icon_Hotspot.

    For more information about hotspots, see Create a hotspot.

To remove an image or a hotspot from a composition

On the artboard, do one of the following:

  • Right-click an image or a hotspot, and then click Remove from Composition.

  • Click an image or a hotspot, and then press DELETE.

  • In the Layers panel, right-click the image or hotspot, and then click Remove from Composition.

  • In the Images panel, right-click an image, and then click Delete from Project.

    Caution noteCaution

    Deleting an image from the project will automatically remove it from your composition. If you want to remove an image from your composition but not delete it from your project, use one of the other options in this procedure.
