Changing the image scaling and position on a strip

If the image you're using on your strip is a different size or shape to the strip itself (or column inside the strip), part of the image might be cut off or simply not appear as you wish. You can play around with the image scaling and positioning to fix this.

To change the image scaling and position on a strip:

  1. Select the image on the strip.
  2. Depending on whether the your image takes up the whole strip or just a column, do one of the following:
    • Whole strip: Click Change Strip Background.
    • Column only: Click Change Column Background.
  3. Click Settings.

  1. Scroll down to Scaling & Positioning.
  2. Click the How's the image scaled? drop-down and select an option:
    • Original Size: The original size image is displayed. Parts of it may be cut off.
    • Scale to Fill: The image is resized to fill the available space. You may want to reposition it.
    • Tile: The image is displayed in tile formation across the available space.
  3. Select a position for your image under Where is it positioned?.
    Tip: This is helpful if your image is not centered or is focused on the wrong area.
