Getting Started

In order to begin editing, open the Recreate Picture Editor app and upload your photo. You can upload PNG, JPEG, JPG, and SVG files. 

After opening your photo, you should see your photo pop up in our editing window, with a sidebar containing a number of editing options on the left of the window. The editing options are:
  • Crop,
  • Finetune,
  • Annotate,
  • Filter,
  • Sticker,
  • Frame,
  • Resize

For this exercise, we will be using the crop, annotate, sticker, and frame tools. 

Crop Tool 

Grab the corners of the photo (indicated by the black dots), and slightly crop out the left and right sides of the photo. After doing this, select the zoom option on the bottom of the screen and slightly zoom into the photo by 5%.

Annotate Tool

We will use this tool in order to add our text. Be sure to identify the open space that occupies the frame of this photo, and take advantage of this space. There can be a lot of different ways to creatively fill this space, so the choice is always yours! 
Once your open space is identified, select the text option within this tool and draw a square rectangle. Make sure to play around with different fonts and colours.

Sticker Tool

Next, we will use the sticker tool in order to place another image on top of the original photo that we are working on. For this project, we'll be using our logo. 
Make sure that your stickers are easy to see, without being too distracting.

Frame Tool

Now for the finishing touch! Let's add a border to this project by using the frame tool. We'll add a rounded white border to this poster, matching the white text we placed when using the annotation tool. There are many options to choose from in terms of what frame you would like to place on your project, so choose wisely!
