Common Questions

How do I create a text mask? 

The first step in creating a text mask in Piktochart is finding and choosing the letters for your text mask. You may find the text frames within the Photo Frames library. 

Within the Graphics tab, select Photo Frames. 

Scroll the library to search for the letter frames.  

Next, select the letters needed to spell your word. For this example, 'W'. 

Drag the image from the Photos library or Uploads library directly over the letter frame and release your left click on your mouse. 

Double-click the frame to resize, reposition or Unmask your image. Click Done once finished.
