of various file formats of 'bmp', 'jpg', 'png', 'tif',

2.2 Setting Properties of Blendable Image
To set properties of a blendable image, click twice on an item of the 'imageListView', and the properties
of the selected image in the middle area and the image in the 'imageView' of lower area. See Figure 2-2.
To change the transparency of the image, use 'Transparency setter' slider.
To change the size of the image, use 'Size setter' slider.
To change alignment of the image, use 'Alignment setter' comboBox.
Please note that this free version cannot blend large image files properly.
This is mainly because the current SolImageBlender event handlers for 'Transparency' and 'Size' sliders
may take a few seconds to change the blend properties and create a new image for the large images.
