Rendering Images

Rendering images is the process where Spectra/myStratus builds new image files from the your originals, using the changes you’ve made in the software. You may render out images for proofing or preview purposes – such as printing proofs or loading images up to a website – or you may render images from an order for printing.

Please note: Because we are continually updating our library of training videos as new versions of our software are released, this video will likely show an older or newer version of StudioPlus Spectra/myStratus than you have installed. Don't worry! The video will still give you a great overview of this feature.
