Tips for faster editing

If you really want to cut your template editing time, here’s our best take on the subject:

  • Select a template with similar amount of text so that you don’t have to spend time on adjusting your texts fields just right and struggling to keep the balance of the design.
  • If you want to use your own background, choose a template with a similar background image so that you can easily swap the picture without ruining the coordination of template fonts, frames, color blocks and other design elements with the background image.
  • When you want to use your logo, opt for a template that has the spot for the image as is, so that you don’t have to move the design elements and text boxes around in order to make the space for your logo.
  • If you need to fit a lot of text on your design, go for a template that has a solid background or at least isn’t very busy and won’t visually clash with your text.
  • Whenever you need to switch fonts in your design, try to maintain contrast between your selected fonts. To play it safe, pick fonts that are similar to the default ones (e.g. if the font in the template is sans serif, wide and doesn’t slant, select one that has similar characteristics).
  • When adding additional design elements, like stickers, borders, lines, icons, shapes or text badges, make sure the template has enough space for them or, alternatively, remove as many default decorations as you need to make room for your new additions.
  • To avoid accidentally moving or editing the items you’ve completed, use Lock function. Located in the top left corner of the central control panel of the Crello interface, the button will seal your design elements until you are ready to download your design or go back to editing them:
