Step 1: Log into your HM account. Click on “Template Gallery” (upper, right hand corner). Use the middle, drop down menu to search for which size Canvas template you would like to create (16×20, 20×20, or 18×24).

The template you chose will go into your “My Templates” folder. From there you can browse for more templates or click on “Start My Own.”

Step 3: Open your project in the Studio Editor. Click on the Photos tab (bottom right corner) and upload photos if you don’t have them uploaded already.

Step 4: Click on the photo boxes on your project, then drag and drop your favorite photos into the “drop photo here to swap” box.

If you photo does not drop into the box, perfectly squared, you may need to adjust it by going to your Tool Box and click on the “Adjust” tab to move your photo.

Step 5: You may also double click on the text box and change any text. From here, you can click on the Tool Box and change the text font, color, etc…
