What is the online design editor?

There are 2 different ways to create files that are printable with Gelato: you can either upload a print-ready file (PDF or image) or you can use our online design editor to create your file from scratch (using a PNG/JPG file and/or adding text boxes).


Accessing the online design editor

In order to open the design editor, just go the Product Catalogue, select the product you want to print, select the format and orientation and any other customizable options, then click on "Design your print".




The most important section of the editor in Layers. From here, you can add images or text to your design. Just click on "Add new" and select "Add image" or "Add text". 


Depending on whether it's an image or a text box, you will see different options on the top bar, e.g. change font, font size, position, etc.





In the Settings section, you can review some of the settings of the editor, e.g. show a grid to simplify your editing.




In the Gallery section, you can find all the pictures that you have added to the document.




The Layouts section provides a number of premade layouts to help you create a beautiful design.
