 +===== Basic Changes =====
 +
 +  * To add an image, right-click it and choose **''​Add an image''​**. A window will pop-up and let you choose a file. A new image will be named like its source file and added to the list;
 +  * Right-click on an image to access other properties and to copy, cut and paste it.

 +----
 +===== Properties =====
 +
 +You can access to an image properties by simply selecting it. Properties are shown in the bottom-right part of the editor by default. You can then modify the image file, its name, choose if the image must be smoothed (''​True''​ by default; deactivate this option if you want a pixel-perfect display) and if the image must be kept in memory (useful with drawing actions and if no objects use the image).
 +----
 +===== Folders =====
 +
 +You can use folders to organize your images. Click on the ''​**Add a virtual folder**''​ icon in the ribbon or on the toolbar in the **Images Bank** to open the window below:

 +Multiple folders can contain the same image, and all the images in your game are visible in the **''​All images''​** folder.
 +To add a folder, right-click and choose **''​Add a folder''​**. You can rename the new folder by right-clicking it and choosing **''​Rename''​**. To add an image to a folder, right-click on the folder and choose **''​Add an image''​**. A window will appear and let you choose a file. The image will be added to the folder and to the **''​All images''​** folder. You can remove an image by right-clicking on it and choosing ''​**Remove from the folder only**''​.
 +----
 +===== Other features =====
