Say you upload an image to Smart Builder and realize it needs a bit more finetuning.
Smart Builder offers built-in image controls that allow you to customize, edit, and stylize images, directly within the builder from the editing canvas, such as:
- Finetuning, and
- Adding Filters to your images.
This article will explain how to edit your images directly in Smart Builder.
