Customizing Your Text

Once you’ve added text to your project, you may want to customize it further with additional styling. Follow along for some guidance on customization options for your text.

Step 1: Open your Photo Editor, Graphic Designer or Collage Maker to your latest project.

Step 2: Find the Text option in the sidebar menu, shaped like the letter 'A'. Click into that menu then click Add Text to get started.

Step 3: Click into the text box and type in the text you'd like to add on your keyboard.

Step 4: You'll see when any text is added, a Text Properties box appears. Here you'll have several different customization options.

All of these options also have an 'Intensity' slider in the color picker, which lets you change the strength of the effect you're adding.
