This feature also includes automatic face detection and tracking. This option is especially helpful when creating large numbers of badges.
After the image is captured the face area can be manually or automatically cropped. Check off the “Apply Crop Frame” box for automatic cropping.
If the face on the image is not recognized automatically you have the choice to outline the face area manually. You can adjust frame size and position using the zoom, vertical offset, and horizontal offset tabs to fit specific badge requirements.
Once you take the image by clicking “Capture to file,” the settings will appear. You can adjust size, brightness, contrast, hue, saturation, gamma, white balance, and sharpness while comparing to the original photo.
