How to Add Images to your design in the My Sister & i Product Designer
- Adding a Image to your Design
Our Design App offers 2 options for adding images to your design.
Option 1 – Add an image from your PC.
Option 2 – Choose a Image from the Pixabay image Library.
Both these options can be found under the Add image feature highlighted in the image below.
- Adding an Image from your PC
Click the Add Image button. Then in the window that opens, Either drag and drop your image onto the block labeled ” Click or Drop Image here”, or click and navigate to your image and click open.
Uploaded images are given a rating(out of 3 stars), once uploaded to view your image rating hover over the image.
1 star is the minimum requirement for a fair print. If your image does not score even 1 star we’d suggest not using the image in your design as the image might print pixelated. The solid filled stars indicate the image star rating.
- Pixabay Library
To use images from the Pixabay Library click the Pixabay Tab in the Add Image window. You can enter a search phrase or keyword into the search bar to filter the options to what you are looking for.
Adding images and understanding the ratings is fairly easy as you can see. Now that you know how to upload images to the designer. You can use any Design program to create your design. Then export it as a PNG or SVG with a transparent background. Then import it to our designer and place onto a garment you want printed.
