Use this command to open an existing image file or several of them. You can also use this command to preview images without opening them. If you choose this command, the Open Image dialog box will appear with the following options:

Look in
Shows the drive or folder in which you can look for image files to open. To select a different drive or folder, click the arrow next to the box and browse through the folder list. The contents of the drive or folder you select appear below in the box.  

Up One Level
Click this button to move to the folder above the current one in the folder list.  

Create New Folder
Click this button to create a new folder in the current one.  

Click this button to display only the names of the files in the list.  

Click this button to display the details about the files in the list.  

File Name
Type a name for the file you want to open. If you highlight a file in the list, its name will appear in the File Name box. To make a multiple selection, hold down the CTRL key and then use your mouse or the SPACEBAR. If you select the Preview option, a thumbnail of the selected image (or the last image in case of multiple selection) will be displayed in the preview window.  

Files of Type
Lists the image types supported by ImageWarp. (See Image File Formats for more details.) Select the type for the files you want to be displayed in the list. If you select All Formats, ImageWarp will use file extensions to identify the formats.  

Image Frame
Displays the number of the frame in which the image will open. By default, ImageWarp sets it to the first available number. Type or select another value if you want the image to open in a different frame. In case of multiple selection, images open in subsequent frames which are numbered starting with the selected value.  

Select this check box to watch a thumbnail of the selected image or image sequence (or the last of the images in case of multiple selection) and the basic information that is associated with the selected file. Clear the check box to disable the preview function for time-saving purposes when working with large images.  
Note – Preview image is not available for RAW type.  
Closes the dialog box and opens the selected image file(s). If you chose RAW file format, Raw Options dialog will appear with the following options:  
Width – Select image width in pixels  
Height – select image height in pixels  
Offset – select the offset of the actual image information from the beginning of the file in bytes  
Depth – select pixel depth in bytes  
Grayscale – select this option if the image is gray  

Closes the dialog box without performing any action.  

Note – At the bottom of the File menu, ImageWarp maintains a list of the last eight image files you have opened. You can open any of these files by simply clicking the file name.  

Note – If your user-defined image file has a different extension than *.raw, rename the file and then chose RAW format to read it.  
Note – you can import an image into ImageWarp by using drag-and-drop operation. Simply drag an image file from the Desktop, Windows Explorer or any other drag-and-drop compatible application and drop it on the ImageWarp client area.
