The image will be automatically formatted: this process may take a few seconds,
and the formatted image will then be sent to your friend;
both of you will see the progress of the transmission on the progress bar at the bottom of the uSeeToo window.

You can also drag and drop image files from any folder onto the uSeeToo window.
You don’t need to worry about the size of the image in pixels or bytes: all images will be converted before transmission.

Finally, you can load pictures using Open from the File menu (selecting image files in the file chooser).
