Hello and welcome! I’m going to take you through a quick tutorial on how to make your designs look more professional. If you want to try this tutorial yourself, jump onto a desktop computer. So firstly on dark backgrounds, make sure your font is white. and on light backgrounds, make sure your font is black. Sounds simple? It is but it makes a huge difference. So you can see in this demo, it’s hard to read the texts All I have to do is double click on my text and highlight it. Choose white from the color palette and
then all of a sudden, my text is much more visible. Let’s go on
to the second tip. Always use frames for your images. So you can see here in this demo, the images have just been placed on the page and don’t
look very good at all. So I’m going to search through frames and choose one that I like. I can then drag it onto my page I can then drag my images into the photo
holders and you can see my design looks much
better already. When placing an image over a photo, try using a text holder. You can see in this demo that it’s difficult to read the texts. So I come over here is the text tab choose a text holder I like I can change all the text and then I can change the color making sure
it has nice contrast to the background and moving into position. To crop an image in a frame, all you have to do is double click on it. So here, you can’t see the children’s faces in the frames so I double click on the image and I can
move it down into position. And the final hint for today is to layout your photos and grids. So I come over here to the search bar and type in grids Choose a grid that I like and drag it
onto my page I’m going to upload my own images choose the ones I want and then drag them into the grids. You can see they automatically resize. Again if you want to crop the image, we simply double click on it. So that’s all we have time for today. I look forward to seeing what you guys design.
