The style of the Phota interface can be adjusted to suit your taste, and can
vary from one album to another. The default Original Appearance choice
uses mostly dark colors for dialog and control backgrounds, and often colored text
on buttons. Select the Standard Dialog Appearance option if you prefer
a more traditional Windows interface style. The Custom Appearance choice
allows the selection of custom colors for Dialogs and Panels, Button and Label Text
and Entry Backgrounds. The size of text, buttons and other controls can be
adjusted by switching the Interface Scale from Normal to Large,
Jumbo, Huge, Enormous or Gigantic.
Either a solid color or a pattern can be selected for the Album Background
surrounds photo images on album pages and full-screen displays. A collection of
patterns is included with Phota
(several were created by Kaleider

for the Album Description
and photo Titles
can be customized.

button to select a font type and size. The Set
button allows specification of the text color. A color can also
be selected for the background that text is displayed upon by pressing Set

option is checked, text is
displayed directly on the album background (except for the Album Comments
which will still use the text background color).
