Basic Help with the designer


Our online personaliser is the latest and greatest from EatYourPhoto and we are very proud of the latest addition. We aim to make it as simple and a functional as possible, this is the first how to article about the software. Showing and explaining how to upload your images and add clipart to any image.

Adding Your Images
One of the best features of the software is that your able to add as many images as you like. Previously on EatYourPhoto users have been limited to 6 images only, however with the latest software you can have as many as you can find. There are multiple methods of uploading your content, you can upload your own local file, use your webcam, add some of our clip art (more on that later), social media and more! Anyway, the most popular and important method of uploading is local files identified as "Browse File".

  1.  Click Images in the top left corner to ensure that image options are displayed to the left.
  2.  Click the first option "Browse File" on the list
  3.  Your device will open a file explorer find and open the file that you would like to use. Please note that this is where is it saved on your device and to upload one at a time
  4.  Your image will now appear within the workspace on the product that your designing and will have a transform box surrounding it.
  5.  Click your image and various options will be shown to the left. However most importantly there are 4 options on each corner of your image, if your image is large and this is not visible click and drag your image to view, from top left to bottom right they are: Rotation, Scale, Delete and Move.


Multiple images can be added and the order of the layers can be seen and adjusted on the right side by dragging and dropping.

Please see the animation below.

Next up, Clipart!
Adding clipart to personalised products is a great way to add a bit of fun to any image. From elephants to emojis, we have a vast and growing supply of clipart to choose from. And most can also be coloured to your liking (shown in the animation below).

  3.  Click clipart and a box should appear

  4.  Select the category you would like to look at and click the image that you would like to add

  5.  The image will appear on your design. Same transformation tools apply as on your first image (see instructions above). Scale and position your image

  6.  On the left will be the different colours that can be altered for that particular clipart, to change, click the colour box

  7.  There are preset colours to the left, just click to apply. Or create your own colour to the right by changing the palette with the slider to the right, when your done select choose.

  8.  Voila! Job done, your image is now personalised with your own added clipart.
