Create a new Artwork
Go to Artworks page, click on + New artwork button to open Artwork editor.

The New artwork from PSD button is for users who want to import a photoshop file to create an artwork. This feature will convert each groups of layers in the psd file into a template in artwork. If you don't want that, you can click on "+ New artwork" and upload psd inside Artwork editor, then all groups are uploaded as layers in one template.

Upload Layers

In Artwork editor, click on Upload Artwork button to start uploading images, or click on Add Text to write text.
The layers will show up in Layers list on the left.

Additonally, you can upload a photoshop (PSD) file via the "Upload Artwork" button, or via the "New artwork from PSD" button on the Artwork page.

However, for personalizable layers, you should upload the layer images one by one, not through psd file, to maintain the image ratio.

We do NOT recommend to upload the whole PSD file because:
Photoshop will trim the empty space of a layer by default, making its shape and ratio different.
Example: a Dog layer in Square shape, with empty space around, will be trimmed to rectangle shape which fits the dog's shape. It creates a different ratio from the original layer, and leads to incorrect re-position of personalized cliparts (if other cliparts are in square shape).

If a PSD file contains a text, our app cannot recognize and will turn all text into normal layers, so you cannot customize or make the text personalizable. In this case, we recommend to add text to your artwork using the "Add text" button within Artwork editor.

Manage Layers

To show or hide a layer, you can click on the "eye" icon

Hidden layer cannot be clickable or movable. Therefore, you can hide a layer if it overlays another layer that you want to edit.

To change the order of layers, drag and drop it to the correct order.

To delete a layer, hover on the layer and click on “x” button

To change layer name, double click on the layer and rename; enter to finish editing.

To re-size and move a layer in artwork, just drag and drop the layer in artwork preview:

To rotate a layer, click and hold the circle button on top. It will show the degree (deg) when you rotate:

To enable snap guidelines, click on the settings icon ➡ enable toggle "Snap":

To show grid guidelines, click on the settings icon ➡ enable toggle "Show grid":

To select multiple layers and edit at a time, hold Ctrl key ➡ left mouse click on the layers to select:

To select a range of layers and edit at a time, hold Shift key ➡ left mouse click on the start-range layer and the end-range layer to choose range:

To replace a layer with another image, without setting the layer again, you can use the "Change default image" feature. The new image will replace the original layer and keep all the settings, including: size, position, personalize options, reposition...

To add personalization options to a layer, click the pencil icon to open personalization panel.
