Want to learn how to add text and personalize them for your use?

Check it out below! I’ve put together a tutorial on using your phone and computer to do this.

On your iPhone using the WordSwag app:

  1. Save the stock images to your phone. You’ll need to unzip them on a computer and transfer them back to your phone using an app like Dropbox or AirDrop if you’re an Apple user.
  2. Open WordSwag app.
  3. Select the right button, that looks like two polaroids, to open an existing image.
  4. Tap “Camera Roll” at the top.
  5. Select your stock image from your camera roll.
  6. Choose your size at the bottom – I like square for social media.
  7. Move your photo around in the box to get the parts you want in the frame.
  8. Tap “Crop.”
  9. Double tap the text on the photo to change it and type your desired quote or phrase.
  10. Select your “Style” of text. You can play around with how it’s displayed using the numbers and dice underneath the styles.
  11. Select your “Color” of text. There are lots of options from plain text, to patterns, to a gradient.
  12. Tap the “+” at the top to add more text, if you’d like.
  13. Tap “Save” in the top right once the image looks like you want it to.
  14. Now it’s saved in your camera roll and ready to upload to social media!

Here’s one I made on my phone!

On your computer using Photoshop:

  1. Save the stock images to your desktop by unzipping the file and moving them to a folder you can find easily.
  2. Open Photoshop.
  3. Click File > Open and find the image you’d like to use.
  4. Click the Crop tool and select your size. I like square for social media.
  5. Move your photo around in the box to get the parts you want in the frame.
  6. Hit enter to crop.
  7. Select your Type Tool and type your desired quote or phrase.
  8. Play around with the color, font, and orientation.
  9. Click File > Save As once the image looks like you want it to.
  10. Save as a JPEG or PNG for social media and upload!

Here’s one I made on my computer!

 

I hope that helps! I’d love if you tag your photos online with #LTMstock so I can see the awesome ways you’re using them!
