    The checkbox will keep the original quality. Unchecking this box will allow you to set the image quality using the slider.


    Use the slider to adjust image quality.

    The farther the slider is to the right the sharper the image will be.

  • B: Set the scale of the blueprint. If you need to set the scale manually please see the article Scaling Imported Blueprints.
  • C: If needed you can also rotate, flip, shear, and crop the blueprint.
