The main purpose of an Image component is to display an image asset in a scene. This is the most compact and reduced form of media components in Touch Creator.
Creating an Image Component
Simply drag and drop the Image component from the Library into the Stage. Also, a corresponding entry will be created in the Scene Manager. You can drag the entry to its place in the Scene Manager.
Using an Image Component
Image components simply display an image asset in your multi-touch scenario. You may use one to display a logo, or perhaps act as a background for the scenario. However, by assigning actions to them, Image components can also be used to trigger changes in the scenario.
Note: If you drag an image asset into the Stage, an image component will be created on the spot and the dragged image asset will be assigned to it.
