Video Tutorial: Shape Outlines

Video Tutorial: Shape Outlines

Here’s how it works at PicMonkey: you ask, we deliver. You want shape outlines for your geometric overlays? You got shape outlines for your geometric overlays, plus more color options. Check your struggles at the homepage, because the days of solid shapes eclipsing your creativity? Those days are over.

You can create shape outlines because Geometric overlays are now two-color, and you can make the second color transparent. After you’ve placed your overlay, go to the palette and pick a color for Color 1 (edge), then check “Transparent” above the color picker for Color 2 (fill). Now you’ve got an outline for text boxes, frames within your image, infographics, coupons, grids, you name it. If corners aren’t your bag, use the circle overlays to annotate your image, ride the trendy wave of circular design, or quickly end a game of Where’s Waldo. Easy peasy lemon squeezy.

Two-color functionality also means you can go nuts color coordinating the edge and fill of your overlay. Want to give that chartreuse triangle some cobalt trim? Just pick your poison from our color palette. If you have a more specific color in mind, select from anywhere in your image with the dropper tool, or input your hex code of choice.

Here it is in action:

P.S. The line thickness adjusts automatically with the scale of your shape.

Oh hey look we’ve talked about shapes before: Shape cutouts give your image an edge.
