How to open photos

inPixio offers multiple ways to open pictures and navigate your folders with ease. You can quickly access recent images and save favorite folder locations. There are also sample images that you can use for editing practice.

Here are 3 ways to open a photo:


1. Opening a photo from the start screen

On the start screen, there are 2 options for opening a photo:

  • Select an editing option, for example “Erase Objects”. This will automatically open an explorer for you to choose a photo before taking you directly to the tab selected.
  • You can also select a recently edited photo from the “My photos” list at the bottom of the start screen. This will open automatically in the “Edit Photo” tab. Right-click the photo in the list to select a different tab.
