More questions about replacing an image in Linearity Curve

Can I replace multiple images at once?

Currently, Linearity Curve (formally Vectornator) does not support replacing multiple images at the same time. If you have more and one image in your design, you will need to repeat the same steps mentioned in this article for each replacement image.

Can I replace an image inside a mask?

Yes. Once you replace a previous image with your current image, enter crop mode to freely position it inside your mask.

Does replacing an image affect its quality?

No. Every image layer remains crisp and clear, even when it's replaced. The image size on your canvas is directly influenced by the dimensions of the preceding image, as it will be placed precisely in its original position.

Can the position and size of an image be affected by replacing it in the Linearity Curve?

When you replace an image, the new one will take the place and size of the original image. If you want to move or resize the image, you can use Linearity Curve’s editing tools, just like you would with any other element.
