How To Upload An Image OR Choose From Our Library
To upload your own image in our APEALZ Art Board, select one of the upload options in the toolbar on the left side of your screen. You may upload from your computer library, Facebook, Instagram, or use a link.
To choose from our artist library, you can search by image or creator, or browse our design categories. You can then customize the selected image in our APEALZ ArtBoard.
Can I Use Multiple Images?
You can use as many of your own images in your custom creation as you’d like. However, you may only use one image at a time from our Creator Library. This is to ensure that our artists receive proper commission on their work.
How To Scale Your Image
Once you’ve uploaded your image, you may resize it two different ways. The first way is using the Scale Up or Scale Down buttons in the toolbar located at the design area. The second is to use the tabs on the dotted line that surrounds your image. Click, hold, and drag to scale. Make sure that your image completely fills the space indicated by the black dotted lines to ensure full product coverage.
How To Rotate Your Image
You may rotate your image two different ways. The first way is using the Rotate buttons (rounded arrows) in the toolbar located at the top design area. The second method allows for more precise rotation. To do this, locate the tab at the top of the dotted line that surrounds your image. Simply click, hold, and drag to rotate.
How To Upload A Background Color
Perhaps you’d like to start your custom APEALZ with a solid background color? All you have to do is click the Color button in the top toolbar. From there, you can select any shade you’d like and click on it.
How To Add Text To Your Image
The APEALZ Art Board offers a variety of different fonts and text sizes to personalize your image. You may also choose from our library of famous quotes. You access these features in step 2 of the design process. Once you’ve uploaded your image and arranged it to your liking, click Next in the top right corner. Use the toolbar on the left side of the page to add your text. There is a box where you can type your message, and drop down boxes underneath to change the font, size, and color. You are able to scale and rotate your text in the same ways you can with your image. You can add a custom outline around your text using the options at the bottom of the toolbar. Please note that the text must be added to your design before you can style your text.
What Kinds Of Images Can I Use?
Choose from your family or vacation photos, something you’ve created, or make something entirely new in our APEALZ Art Board. See our sizing chart to make sure your creation prints at the highest quality. We can’t, however, print copyrighted or explicit materials.
