The program gives you the possibility to upload files into the working environment using “drag and drop” operations.
You can view the contents of the gaming sprite sheet displayed in the primary panel, use the built-in magnifier, and export the selected parts or all of them to PNG, BMP, GIF, TIFF, or JPEG file format, provided that you have picked the saving directory.
