ONE- Overlays

One of the simplest ways to customize an image to match your brand is to add a transparent colour overlay. You can overlay any image with transparent colours that match your brand’s specific colour palette. Have a soft and muted colour palette? Add a white overlay. Have a bright and vibrant colour theme? Add a bright blue overlay. Your options are limitless!

You can even take the overlay process to the next level by adding in some custom font and messaging. With the right colours and the right brand message, you’re sure to make any image perfect for your next blog or social media post!

TWO- Cropping

THREE- Shape

A great way to customize a stock photo is to change its shape. Spice up your website with some custom buttons by changing a rectangle photo into a square or circle...or get crazy and make a triangle!

Customize that stock photo with your own words! We try to leave lots of negative space (white space) in our photos so you can easily add in some custom messaging.
