Colors are critical to your designs. So, knowing how to use them in PIcmaker is the first step in creating awe-inspiring stuff.

In this FAQ, we will explore different ways how you can apply colors to your designs.

Step 1: Log in to your Picmaker account.

Step 2: Click on any design that you are creating. Now, click on the font that you've inserted in your design. In the below design template, we will change the font in white to yellow and see how the effect is.


Step 3: Now, click on the font to select it. Then, click on the color selector on the top menu. In the below image, it is white in color (since the font you're trying to change is white).


Step 4: Clicking on the color selector opens up the color menu for you. You will notice the colors that you have on your design appear at the top of the color selector. Choose from a wide range of colors to make changes.


In our case, we changed the color to red, and here's how the image looks.

Now, you can even select a color of your choice (other than the options that you have in the color selector). If you know the hexadecimal code of the colors that you need, then you're all set.

To do that, click on the 'Selected Color,' and type in the hexadecimal code of the color that you prefer. Notice how the color changes. In the image, we applied the hexadecimal code, '#FFFF00' to replace the earlier red.


That is not all.

You can change the color of any object, shape, frame, etc. on your designs.
