How to start with more
When you launch About, the first thing that prompts you is to select an image to use. On the left, you’ll see a series of thumbnails of the photos in your Camera Roll or Photo Gallery. You can click on the thumbnail to open the image. If you can’t find an image, click the button Library to find the image on your device. Press the button Camera take a picture.
How to use the About interface
When the image appears, you will see several tabs – Text or Art – on the left side of the screen. It allows you to enter and format text or add some pre-made images. You can also make in-app purchases for images and fonts if the current offerings don’t meet your needs.
The yellow triangle on the right opens the options wheel, which you can rotate by dragging. Options:
- New † Delete the current project and start a new one.
- photos † Open a photo on your device.
- To score † Make an in-app purchase
- To add: Add text or art.
- Change † You can crop or colorize the image. (Hue is misnamed. It’s more of a brightness control than anything else.)
- Font style † Choose an installed font or make an in-app purchase.
- Save † Saves the image to the camera roll.
- Lake † Think of it as an app info bar.
- Part † Post the image to Facebook, Twitter, Path, Instagram, IM, Email or Pinterest on iOS or your Google Photos account on Android.
How do I add text?
When you click on the “Text” tab, you will be prompted to “Double tap to edit text”. When you do this, a keyboard, colored chips and a text entry cursor appear. In the Twitter handle example, @TomGreen was used. When you are happy with the color, click Finished.
Then drag the text into place. To rotate text, place two fingers on the screen and rotate them.
Formatting text in more
When the text is in place, you can format the text by selecting Edit in the options wheel. Your choise:
- Colour † Slide the color bar to change the color of the text.
- The size † You have two options. Press and hold the + or – button to increase or decrease the font size. Another way is to compress or shrink the text to decrease or increase the font size.
- cover † Hold down the button or press the “+” or “-” button to increase or decrease the opacity.
- To spin † Click the up or down arrow to rotate the text.
How to change the font to more
The first thing to know about choosing fonts in About is that they differ between the iOS and Android versions. However, you can add your own fonts to About.
To change the font, select Font style in the options wheel and click the font. The text changes to the selected font. You can also purchase fonts and font packs from within the app.
How to add images to About
About contains several packs of pre-installed images, although you can purchase other collections in the app.
To add a clip symbol, click To add in the parameter wheel “About”.
Select the icon you want to use in collections, choose a color, then click Okay † From there, you can use the Pinch-Zoom technique to make it larger or smaller, or open the editing options and make your changes there.
If you are satisfied, click on Save on the options wheel and the image will be saved to your gallery (Android) or camera roll (iPhone).
