Create your own personalised GIF

You can create your own GIF templates in two ways:

  • Clone an existing template within the Public or My Template libraries.

  • Clicking on Create a New Template to start from scratch.

To create a new GIF template from scratch, click on Create a New Template from either the Public or My template Image libraries. This will launch the image editor.

Setting the base/ background GIF

1. Begin by configuring the background. For a GIF template, the background for the template must be a GIF.

In our demonstration we have added a GIF from our files as the background for our template

2. Once your Background GIF is configured, you can start to add components to your template. 

The layout of the editor

The editor is divided into 2 sections:

  • The Canvas: This displays the Image being created and edited. The components are added directly on top of this.

  • Components & Properties: This displays the available components and their corresponding properties.

Adding personalized text

1. To add personalized text to the Gif Template, click on the Text Component tile. The text component appears on the canvas and its corresponding properties appear on the right.

2. You can drag the text box on the canvas to reposition it, and drag the corners out to re-adjust its size.

3. The text content can be edited within Content Tools, under Properties on the right. You can also adjust the font size, alignment, and color from here.

4. You can view the available personalization variables by clicking on the Select Variable dropdown. 

You can always add additional personalization variables through the Enlist Variables tab. 

5. Copy the variable you would like to use within your text component and then paste it within the text editor.  

6. Under Design Tools  you can adjust the text box size and set the 3D Warp.

Adding additional components to your image

From the components tab, you can click on any of the available components to add them to your image. 
These include: 
- Shapes 

Article guides for each of these components have been linked above

Template Meta Data

Once your personalized Image template has been designed, you can click on Define Meta to configure the template details such as the Template Name, Template description, and Category.

You can also configure the social preview for the image here. 

Congratulations! Your personalized GIF template is ready!

Remember to click on Save Template to save any changes

All your created templates can be found within your My Templates library.
