It’s easy to get into a habit and miss the simple little things you can do to make life easier.
Here’s a somewhat embarrassing example of mine (but sadly true): Finally moving the coffeemaker next to the water faucet after going back and forth dripping water on the floor for three years!
So, I’m here to point out what you might be missing in your graphic creations… so you don’t end up saying “why didn’t I do that 10 years ago”!
You might find one or two little features in The Graphics Creator that you’ve never tried (or have forgotten about)… and they could just make designing your images even easier.
See if you can check these off your design list:
Text Styles: Create a solid background to your text as you write- Perfect for helping text on an image stand out (look for “Text Styles” in the Text Menu)
Circle Text Generator: Design curved text- Add a text circle to your logo design or advertisement (find under “Insert” menu)
Photos & Videos: Add them right from inside the software- No need to leave your design… just drag and drop your selected image onto the canvas. These make social media creation fast and easy (click on Photos/Videos menu and pop a keyword into the search box)!
Rule of Thirds Grid: Line up text and images perfectly- Stop messing around with trying to manually line up images and text (click directly on the canvas and use the check box to your left)!
Shapes: Choose the desired shape to use as an overlay- Gives your design a professional look and helps your message stand out. Make sure to use the Opacity slider to get the right level of transparency for your design (find under the Insert Menu).
…and take a look at what you can do to simplify your design life.
