Text is a crucial component of design, carrying the message and enhancing the visual appeal. In Ellty, adding and editing text is a seamless process, allowing you to effectively communicate your message while maintaining aesthetic harmony. Whether you're creating a social media post, a business presentation, or a custom invitation, mastering text manipulation is key. This guide will show you how to add, customize, and perfect text in your Ellty designs.

Adding Text to Your Design

  1. Start with the Text Tool: In the Ellty editor, locate and click on the Text tab. This will open up a range of text options, including various fonts, sizes, and styles.

  2. Insert Text: Choose a basic text style or a pre-designed text template. Once selected, it will be added to your canvas. Click on the text box to start typing your content.

  3. Position Your Text: Drag the text box to position it where you want it on your design. You can place it anywhere on the canvas.

Editing and Customizing Text

  1. Adjust Font and Size: To change the font or size, select the text and use the options in the editor toolbar. Ellty offers a wide range of fonts to suit different styles and needs.

  2. Modify Color and Style: Change the color of your text to match your design. You can also bold, italicize, or underline your text for emphasis.

  3. Text Alignment and Spacing: Use the alignment tools to align your text left, right, center, or justify. Adjust the line spacing and letter spacing to ensure your text is readable and aesthetically pleasing.

Advanced Text Features

  • Layering Text with Elements: Experiment with layering text over images or shapes for a dynamic effect. Ensure the text remains legible against the background.

  • Adding Effects: Explore text effects like shadow, glow, or outline to make your text stand out.

  • Using Text as a Design Element: Sometimes, text isn't just for reading - it can be a design element in itself. Play with large, decorative fonts to add a creative touch to your designs.

Text is more than just words on a page; it's an integral part of your design's narrative. In Ellty, you have the tools to add and edit text with ease, giving you the freedom to express your message creatively and effectively. Whether it's through bold headlines or subtle captions, the right text treatment can significantly elevate the impact of your design.
