This Kaleider screen shot displays a photo after the L-R Side Angle
pre-defined Diamond Mirror Pattern has been selected. The Mirrors have
been created within a diamond shaped 'Mirror Box' that has been adjusted to the
desired size, and positioned on the screen with the mouse. (Exact position and
size values can also be set via the Effect Controls panel at the top of
the screen.) The Mirror surfaces (in this case 2 of them) are outlined, with
the red lines representing the 'plane of reflection' for each Mirror. The
Kaleid Tools panel along the right edge of the screen contains buttons for
most of the common options and Kaleider effects. Edit Tools along
the bottom of the screen provide controls for manipulating images and Tiles.
Both of these can be toggled on/off via keyboard commands. A Popup Menu
is also available to access all Kaleider commands. Just press
Render (or the Space Bar) to render an effect. The Shifting Effects
feature can then be used to reposition the result as desired with the mouse,
essentially re-rendering the same effect based on different relative positions within
the source image.
The Appearance Options
function allows you to set preferences for the
interface. This sample screen shows the Kaleider Original Interface
, with colors on a dark background (the button colors are somewhat dulled
because the image was saved in the JPG format). Click here to see what the same
screen looks like with the Standard Windows
. The interface can also be scaled to a larger size,
perhaps making it easier to read text and buttons on large, high-resolution monitors.
