In this article, we explore the vast posibilities to create a template image for your outros. Outromaker works with PicMonkey, the premium online image editing software.
Creating your own outro template image is a piece of cake with OutroMaker.
First of all, you need to access your template editing screen:
Then, on the template screen, just click new. You will be taken to the template editor.
There, just click on the “Create” button
This will transfer you to the image editor. The first thing you will want to do, is to get rid of the default image. It would not serve as a great background.
Adding a texture to the background will make it seem much more interesting. You can do so by:
You can add more layers to your texture. Here we added a light burst, comming from the top.
To have a sense of the size of the videos we will be adding later on, we need a box (which we will remove later if we wish) with the correct aspect ratio of the videos (16:9)
Quick way to do so is to draw a full rectangle over the whole image:
… and resize it while holding SHIFT to maintain the aspect ratio. (change the color as well!)
If you want to create exact copies, right clicking on the overlay, will allow you to create a duplicate.
We want to name the videos and add our subscribe call to action and twitter/facebook data as well.
Let’s see how easy it is:
After placing the text layer wherever you want, you are Done!
After placing our texts, we can add embelishments (well, sort of…)
The image editor sports many themes on which you can improvise
Here, we add a blood drop on one of the videos.
The internet is full of them (or any other graphic in this case)
Just make a quick google search for any icon you want (e.g. twitter and facebook in our example).
Save the results in your own computer and then:
Since all your elements are still on layers, you can adjust the background. Here we tweaked the exposure so we can make it show more.
After flattening the image (1), any effects take place over the whole image. Here, we applied a “Miniature” effect, to enhance the gloomyness of the image (2,3)
Just save the image from the editor menu, and it will be set as your template background on the Template editor on OutroMaker
Adding the video elements, the subscribe button and the social links is easy:
Just click on it to make an outro!
