How to Make Amazing Web Graphics Quickly Using Pixteller

Posted on at


Hello, Bitlanders. For the past few weeks, I had been using Pixteller.com to make my graphics for bitLanders. So, I thought I would post a quick basic tutorial on How To Make Amazing Web Graphics Quickly Using Pixteller.

I have already shared with you the features and the environment of Pixteller in my post Why I Love PixTeller

Just like in the video above, in this post, I will share with you how to make a web graphics in less than a minute using an existing template. For this particular tutorial, I will use one of the photo collage for the background.

Note, you can do this in less than a minute if you have a stable Internet connection.

How to Make Amazing Web Graphics Quickly Using Pixteller

  • Open Pixteller.com

Using your web browser, preferably Google Chrome, go to Pixteller.com. If you don't see the page as shown in the image below, click the 'Create' link. In this tutorial, I clicked on 'Social Media Post'.

 

What do you want to create?

  • Search For a Photo Collage

After selecting 'Social Media Post', I searched for 'Photo Collage" on the search box. Pixteller will display at least two pages of templates to chose from. On the second page, I found a template with four pictures with the text 'Las Tic en La escuela'

Search for "Photo Collage"

  • Use Design

Once you have selected a template, Pixteller will show you a preview. On the bottom left of the screen, you will the 'Use Design' button.

Clicking on the "Use Design' Button will clone the template so you can make changes on your copy without changing the original work.

  • Edit The Text and Change the Font

The next to do is to edit the text and change the font.

  1. Select the text 'Las Tic en La escuela'.
  2. Using the text box on the left, you can enter the new text. In this example, the text is "How To Create Awesome Web Graphics Using Pixteller"
  3. Just below the textbox, you will find the "FONT" option. I changed it to "avoid"

  • Adding shadow (No image)

Just below the "Font" option, you will find the "Filter" option. I added a shadow on my text. I will make a separate tutorial on adding filters soon.

  • Replace Image(s)

You can easily change any or even all of the images used in the template. To do this,

  1. Select one of the images. Then on the left panel, select "Replace Image"
  2. Browse through the existing images or you can filter the images or even upload one of your own.

Replacing an image this way is faster. You no longer have to resize, crop or move the new image. Instead, it will automatically adopt the properties of the previous image.

In this example, I selected the image on the lower-right corner. Filtered the images using the keyword "computers" and clicked on the image that I wanted.

Replace one or all the images used in the template.

  • Change the Title of Your Project

Before you save your project, you have to give it a descriptive name. The box to the left of the Save button is the title of your project. Always give each of your projects a descriptive name. Otherwise, you will have a hard time looking for it when you need it later.

I originally named this project "How to Create Awesome Web Graphics Using Pixteller", which was the original title of this post. I will explain later why I changed it.

 

 

  • Save

Always save your work from time to time. Especially for bigger projects, don't wait until you finish everything before saving. Anything can happen between you start editing and before you finish your work. Your Internet connection might fail anytime. Saving your work every few modifications will save you time later.

For a free account in Pixteller, all your work will be saved as a public file. Meaning all your works can be seen by others. For premium accounts you have the option to save your project as a private file.

 


Save your work.

  • Download


After saving your work, the "Save" button will change into "Download" button. If make any changes afterwards, however, it will revert back to "Save" button.

If you choose to download your work, click or tap the "Download" button.

After tapping or clicking on the "Download" button, a preview of your work will open in a new tab. On that new tab you can choose which format you want download. The options are:

  • . PNG (Portable Network Graphics)
  • . JPG (or JPEG- Joint Photographic Experts Group)
  • . PDF (Portable Document Format)

We Are Done!

Congratulations, if you have followed this simple tutorial, you have already created your first web-graphics using Pixteller.

Post Edit.

After creating this tutorial, I made additional changes on my work.

  1. Instead of adding a shadow, I changed it to border.
  2. I changed the title to get a better score at coschedule https://coschedule.com/headline-analyzer.

To cap off this tutorial, I created a short video slideshow of some of the works I did using Pixteller.
