  2. Click the Produce Card button or select File > Produce Card ...
  3. Enter the required values in the Data area of the Production view that opens. The data will then be displayed in the relevant card layout (in the Preview area).

    The data that has been entered will not be saved.

    2. Hold down the left mouse button, and drag it to a new position.

    3. Release the mouse button to drop the field into place.

Add image object
  1. To start the image capture, double-click on the image object (provided that the configured data source supports it).
  2. The Image Capture dialog box opens, which allows you to switch between the different capture sources:
    1. Paste an image from the clipboard, or
    2. Read an image from file.
  3. Click Selection Frame >> to select the image area. To do this, move the frame.
  4. Click Manual Enhancement>>, and then use the sliders to adjust the brightness, contrast and sharpness settings. The changes you make are instantly visible on the right-hand image. The original image remains unchanged.
  5. Accept the enhanced image by clicking on it, or by clicking Accept Enhanced Image. You can also click on the original image to accept it.

See Configure Card SDK for a detailed description of how to capture an image.

The procedure for capturing a signature is very similar.
