In today’s blog post, I am going to show in this PixTeller Editor Tutorial how to create a color overlay to your image without Photoshop.
PixTeller Editor Tutorial – How To Create A Color Overlay
What exactly does it mean to create a “Color Overlay”? I always thought a color overlay was difficult to create because of my stupid and impatient bouts with using Photoshop. Then came PixTeller and the clouds parted showing the rays of sunshine making it super easy.
PixTeller Editor Tutorial – How To Create A Color Overlay In PixTeller
Step 1. Launch PixTeller
Open PixTeller on your computer and begin with logging into your PixTeller Account.
Step 2. Create A New Design From Scratch
Select Create From Scratch and size your image, for this demo I have set it to be 1080 X 1080 which is recommended for social media posts you can upload with the best clear resolution.
Step 3. Create A Gradient Effect
Pick out your colors and create your gradient background image first after you click ok you can move on to the next step.
Step 4. Select Your Photo As Your Background Image
Click on the tab Images and choose your photo or you can upload your own photo. Once you selected or uploaded your photo, click on set as background and the whole canvas will be filled with the photo.
Step 5. Decrease The Opacity To Bring The Gradient Forward
Click on the Opacity tab at the top where it says 100% and drag the slider to where you want the opacity to show the colors from your gradient background on the front. In this demo I am going to drag it down to 55%.
Step 6. Add Text
Now you have your color overlay and you can add whatever text you want, in this demo I will text for a special promo for example as you see in my video tutorial.
PixTeller Editor Tutorial – Final thoughts
As you can see how simple and easy it was for me to create a color overlay in PixTeller Editor and I did it without any CSS or Photoshop program. Why go against the grain by feeling you need to buy Photoshop and spend hours learning it when it’s as simple as this with PixTeller.
