The method for saving an image is somewhat different in Kooka
than in many other applications. Click the
Gallery tab to open a small file browser. This is
~/Documents/KookaGallery. In the
window, your current subfolder in the gallery
is shown. This is where all scanned images are first saved as
files. When starting Kooka for the first time, you will only see the
subfolders by clicking this
folder. The selected folder, highlighted in blue, is the first save
location of the scanned images. The scans are labeled in ascending
numerical order as in
To save an image permanently, use and give a new name and the appropriate ending for the image format chosen when scanning. If you enter a different extension, you will get a message that it does not correspond to the scanned format. Although you can still save the image under this name, it will retain its original format. At present, “On-the-fly” conversion is not offered.
If you do not want to use this method of managing your images
~/Documents/KookaGallery/, you can,
of course, save them to another location. To do this,
image name and select Save Image. Choose any path
here. In addition, close or permanently delete images here.
To incorporate other images in the gallery, use → or add them by dragging and dropping. Open the filemanager to the folder containing the desired images. Then add them to the Kooka gallery by dragging them and dropping them into the gallery.
