Image Preferences

The Image Preferences page is a member of the Mira Preferences dialog. Use this page to configure the properties of an Image Window. You can change these preferences after an Image Window is opened or set the Parameters for all future Image Windows.


Show Image Toolbar

Check this box to show the Image Toolbar, or uncheck it to hide the image toolbar. Click [OK] or [Apply] to apply the change to the current image window. Click [Default] to apply it to all future image windows.

Tracker Magnification

Selects the magnification used by the zoomed view on the Image Toolbar. The options are 1, 3, 5, and 9 times the original image. You can also change the tracker magnification for an image window by double-clicking on the zoomed view itself.

Thumbnail Cursor

Maximize Window Size: Mira makes the image as large as possible and keeps the image magnification at 1x.
