Image Composer 1.5

Now incorporated within this section and with his kind permission is:

Robert Crooks  - "Beginners Guide to Microsoft Image Composer 1.0"

Robert originally created the material  as part of the Web Worker's Toolbox, and he has now moved on to become the Curriculum Manager for Allaire Corp and will no longer be updating the old site. 

Note: Of the material used I have updated it from 1.0 to 1.5. Having incorporated Robert's site any changes that I have made or make, that turn out to be mistakes are my own!

Note: There is so much information about Image Composer, it is impossible to cover  everything, the help topics in IC do quite a good job. So in this Image Composer Guide, I have covered Palettes and what each one does, then shown in detail one section of each of the buttons in the palettes. I then list the headings for the other buttons available, under which you can look up the information yourself in Image Composer help files.

This section of AccessFP on Image Composer is not completed and is in Beta. However there is a lot of content that may be useful so I have made it available despite it not being completed. If you spot anything inconsistent etc etc.. please let me know.
