A PhotoPad project consists of a number of layers (such as images, text, and effects). A new project is created when an image is opened, or a collage or panorama is created.
Multiple projects can be opened at the same time in PhotoPad. Each open project is kept in the thumbnail browser at the bottom of the screen and can be opened by clicking the thumbnail image of the project. When enough projects are open, a scrollbar appears below the thumbnails to allow you to scroll left and right to see all the open projects.
