Click any of the "Tools" icons to get started.
"Text" - Replace the "Your Text" with your personal text. Choose your font above it and click "Add Text." Your personal text should now appear on the luminary and your text settings can be adjusted in the floating settings to the right. You can still adjust the font style, color, bold, or .
You can grab and move your text to put it wherever desired. Grab any corner square and resize the text to your liking. Above your text is a blue rotating icon. You can grab the icon and rotate your text.
Make as many text lines as you like by clicking in the luminary but outside of your text so the text tool to the right is restored and you can continue adding more text lines.
"Upload Image" - To upload your own image, click the "Upload Image" icon and then click the "+Add files" button. Locate the image you desire (jpg, gif or png) and upload. Give a few seconds time while your image is uploading to the server. Once the image is loaded, it will appear on your luminary. Most likely, you will need to resize your image by grabbing and dragging any corner box of the outline in or out. If you grab an inside box on the outline, you can alter the size, but your image will not stay proportional. You can grab the middle of your image and move it into your desired position. There is a blue rotating icon above your image. Grab it to rotate your image as desired.
A floating image settings box has opened and you can make further adjustments to your image.
"Clipart" - Click the "Clipart" icon in order to access our library of free clipart. Click the button to the right of "Choose a category" and browse through the topics. The available clipart will appear below. Click on your desired clipart and it will appear on your luminary. Most likely, you will need to resize your image by grabbing and dragging any corner box of the outline in or out. If you grab an inside box on the outline, you can alter the size, but your image will not stay proportional. You can grab the middle of your image and move it into your desired position. There is a blue rotating icon above your image. Grab it to rotate your image as desired.
You can continue adding more clipart, your own images or more text.
"Deleting" is possible by selecting the text, image or clipart you want to delete, then click on the "Delete" button above.
"Move to Front" "Send to Back" - You can make a design where text, images or clipart may overlap one another. Control which design element is behind or in front by selecting an element and clicking one of these buttons.
"Frames" - In the clipart sections is "Frames." You can put a frame on one of your images. Add a frame and your image. After you have done so, it is usually best to select your frame on your luminary and click the "Move to Front" button so the frame is on top of your image. Then, adjust the frame size to fit your image by grabbing and dragging the corner or side boxes outlining the frame. You can adjust the proportional shape of the frame by adjusting it through the adjustment boxes that are NOT in the corners of the outline.
"Masking" - Clipart under "Masks" has intentional blank white areas which are for masking. This is best described through illustration (see below). White areas are not printed areas on your finished luminary design, therefore creating the opportunity to hide areas of another image behind the white mask.
