To edit an image, right-click an image in Selected Images area and select Edit Image to launch the Image Edit Wizard where you can apply effects to the currently highlighted image (rescale, apply effects, retouch, add text message etc.). The edited image is saved as a new file in the same folder as the original image with a new suffix: "_ezg". For example: if you edit an image called "mypet.jpg", the edited image is saved as "mypet_ezg.jpg". Further edits of the original image are saved as: "mypet_ezg1.jpg", "mypet_ezg2.jpg" etc. See Image Edit Wizard for more information.

Click the Finish button when done.
