The Creatorpreneurs Newsletter – Issue #31 – BE THE BEST GRAPHICS MAKER

Hey Creatorpreneurs!

It’s easy to get into a routine and completely miss the simplest way of creating graphics.

More time doing things the hard way means less time making progress in your business or enjoying life!

For example, if you continue to open the Graphics Creator and make graphics the only way you know how, you might do it the hard way.

Plus if you use only the functions you KNOW how to use, you might be missing out on ways to make your graphics even more stunning!

Don’t find yourself saying… “Why didn’t I know that 2 years ago?”!

Take a look at what’s next…

And check out our newest graphics here!


CREATORPRENEUR TOOLS & RESOURCES

The Graphics Creator

It’s time to get to know your Graphics Creator better (this is all about making you an outstanding graphics maker)!

Let’s start here. Do you know about these simple graphics-making design tools INSIDE the Graphics Creator?

  • Text Styles: Create a solid background to your text (jump to 3:31 when watching if you’d like) as you write… and change the color of just one word in a string of text! Perfect for helping text on an image stand out (look for “Text Styles” in the Text Menu)
  • Circle Text Generator: Design curved text like this– Add a text circle to your logo design or advertisement (find under “Insert” menu)
  • Photos & Videos: Add them right from inside the software- No need to leave your design… just drag and drop your selected image onto the canvas. These make social media creation fast and easy (click on the Photos/Videos menu and pop a keyword into the search box)!
  • Rule of Thirds Grid: Line up text and images perfectly- Stop messing around with trying to manually line up images and text (click directly on the canvas and use the check box to your left)!
  • Shapes: Choose your desired shape to use as an overlay (watch at 4:00 minutes)- This gives your design a professional look and helps your message stand out. Make sure to use the “opacity” slider to get the right level of transparency for your design (find it under the Insert Menu).

Have you used all of these?! Log into your Graphics Creator account or open your desktop Creator… take a look at what you can do to simplify your design life.

All you need to do is add a little text…

How about creating a simple quote from a well-known person, adding a business-related tip, or designing an inspirational message?

You can even create them in bulk so you’ll have one to pop into social media consistently!

Of course, these make perfect social graphics at this time of year as well 🙂

The Creatorpreneurs Newsletter – COLOR POWER! Issue #27

What effect do colors have on you?

You buy a sky blue shirt because that color goes well with your skin tone. You wait a month to have a new car shipped to you because you wanted it in "Cherry Red", instead of the basic black one on the sales lot. And you very carefully choose the color of a new rug or carpet... after all, you have to look at it every day for many years to come.

And I'd bet you spend way too much time selecting just the right colors for your next design!

Why all of this focus on choosing the best color? Because you need a helpful color... one that pleases, encourages, excites, calms, warms... or just stands out.

Whether you're choosing a color for prospective buyers or to attract a mate (LOL), color is power!

Continue reading below as Marc and I show you a couple of tools that'll make it easy to choose design colors, whether it's for your graphics or your home renovation!
