How often do you scroll through your social media feed and ask yourself, “How does that friend with no graphic design experience create these professional-looking posts?” The Over app may have had something to do with it.
Explore what Over can do through its Learn tab. Select a task or a project that interests you – examples include putting together a dreamy inspirational quote against a striking visual backdrop, or creating the illusion of depth with multi-layered images.
Each activity is focused on teaching you how to achieve a specific visual effect, and some tasks come with ascending mastery levels, from beginner to pro.
As you practice the techniques using images provided by the app, new ideas for editing your own photos will start popping into your head pretty quickly.
Next, move on to the Templates tab. Spend some time studying how to make a beautiful postcard with multiple layered images.
Templates are conveniently tagged into plenty of categories so you are guaranteed to find something for your needs. Pregnancy announcement? Party invite? Sale banner for your online shop? Pick an existing template and play with the elements – change the text, update the background and switch fonts.
Let your imagination run wild with a custom canvas. Click the central plus button and off you go! Don't be intimidated by a blank space – you're now in the realm of unlimited possibilities!
Hundreds of backdrops, fonts, icons and graphic elements can be customised using the app's editing tools.
Using Over is like being in on a secret. The secret to creating good-looking graphics without having to use professional software.
So go on, create your masterpiece and have your followers wondering how you did it.
