Have a look at this tutorial for more info...

Select an image and it will appear with a context menu allowing you to Copy, Duplicate, Delete and Replace.

The image will also appear with adjustment handles (the little blobs!)  which allow you to edit the image in a number of ways. If you mouse-over or tap the handles the status line at the top of the Xara Cloud window will give you a brief description of each handle’s function. 

You can…

  • Resize and crop the the frame.
  • Rotate the frame.
  • Push the photo around within the frame - use the little 'hand' icon.
  • Rotate, zoom and scale the photo within the frame.
  • Round the corners of the frame.

As you drag the handles to adjust an image, a faint copy of the full uncropped image is shown behind. This makes it easier to make adjustments because you can see parts of the image that fall outside the crop area as you drag the handles.
