SCROLL DOWN FOR DETAILED INSTRUCTIONS ON EDITING YOUR TEMPLATE.
YOU MAY USE THE TEMPLATES FOR YOUR PERSONAL USE ONLY. PLEASE DO NOT SELL THE DESIGNS OR ANY ELEMENTS WITHIN THEM. EACH ITEM PURCHASED ARE ONLY USABLE FOR ONE EVENT. THANK YOU FOR RESPECTING MY WORK.
IMPORTANT NOTICE: I lock some text/elements for the protection of my designs and the artwork I use, so you won't be able to edit everything on the template. If a grey box appears around the object when you click on it or if you can't select the text or object, you won't be able to edit, resize or delete it.
HOW TO OPEN YOUR TEMPLATE:
♡ Click on "TEMPLATES" on the menu on the left to open all the files you purchased.
♡ Select the file you want to edit.
♡ Double click on the wording you want to change.
♡ When the text box changes from blue to green, delete the sample text and add your own.
♡ When the box is blue, you can change the font, text size and color in the text panel and you can also move, stretch and resize/scale.
♡ To make the box blue again, click anywhere outside the green box, then click on the box again.
ADDING A TEXT BOX
♡ Click on the "T (TEXT)" icon on the left.
♡ Select "Add text box" or "Add heading."
♡ The text box or heading will appear in the middle of your template.
♡ Follow the same steps as stated above in "Editing Text" to add and change the text.
CUT, COPY, & PASTE
♡ If you'd like to cut, copy, and paste an element anywhere in the template area, select the object or group of objects and right click.
♡ A context menu will open, and you can select all elements, cut, copy or paste.
♡ When pasting an item or group of elements, they will be inserted in the same position as the cut or copied elements.
♡ Click on the object/text you want to rotate.
♡ The box has to be blue.
♡ Click on the little circle at the top of the box and hold the button while you rotate the object.
RESIZING, MOVING & STRETCHING
♡ Click on the object/text and hover the mouse over one of the four corners. Hold and drag to resize.
♡ To move an object, click anywhere on it, hold and move.
♡ To stretch, click on the object and hover the mouse over one of the circles on the left or the right.
♡ Hold the mouse and stretch.
EDITING BACKGROUNDS AND COLORS
♡ Changing the background is not possible for all designs.
♡ To change the background, click on "BACKGROUND" on the left.
♡ Double click on the background of your choice to add it to your template.
♡ To use a solid color as the background, click the paint bucket and pick a color.
ADDING A PHOTO
♡ Click the "IMAGES" icon on the left.
♡ Drag and drop/upload the photo.
♡ After you uploaded your photo, you can resize and position your photo where ever you like.
♡ If your picture is larger than the template, click, hold and drag the photo until you can see one of the four corners. Click on the corner of your picture and drag it with your mouse until it's the desired size.
HOW TO SEND PHOTOS BEHIND OR IN FRONT OF OTHER OBJECTS
♡ Send your photo behind other objects by selecting your photo and clicking SEND BACKWARDS button several times (icon in the top menu 4th from the right).
♡ To bring your picture forward, select your photo and click on the BRING FORWARD button several times (icon in the top menu 5th form the right).
MADE A MISTAKE?
♡ Use the "UNDO" button in the top blue panel to undo most mistakes.
♡ If you accidentally delete the template or would like it reverted to the original, email me at firstname.lastname@example.org.
SAVING YOUR FILES
♡ When you're happy with your template, you'll need to save it before downloading.
♡ Click on "FILE" > "SAVE" from the top blue panel.
DOWNLOADING YOUR FILES
♡ After saving your file (you have to save before downloading), click “DOWNLOAD” at the top left.
♡ You can download as a PDF, JPEG or PNG.
HOW TO DOWNLOAD AS A PDF
♡ When printing with a backside or multiple templates on one page, this is the best option.
♡ Save as a PDF with the choice to select trim marks for easy trimming and multiples on one page to save paper.
♡ Select the paper size you prefer (A4 or Letter size).
♡ Perfect for printing at home or a print shop.
HOW TO DOWNLOAD AS A JPEG
♡ Save as a JPEG if you’re printing as a 5" x 7" or 4" x 6" photo at a photo lab.
♡ Please ensure you print the correct size. You can’t print a 5" x 7" as a 4" x 6" and vice versa.
♡ JPEG is also perfect if you want to send the file digitally as an E-vite via email, social media, etc.
♡ You can print with or without bleed; please check with your print shop.
♡ Multiple pages will be downloaded as a separate JPG in a zipped folder.
♡ You’ll need to extract or unzip the files once downloaded.
DOWNLOAD AS A PNG
♡ The only time I would recommend downloading as a PNG is when you purchased a Geofilter.
♡ The PNG is compressed so it won’t work for printing.
♡ To send the invitation digitally as an E-vite, I would recommend saving it as a
JPEG, because the PNG quality is lower and will be blurry when zooming in.
