Post Designer

Pagemodo Post Designer is a quick and easy way to create engaging images for marketing campaigns on your Facebook page.

NOTE: For the best experience be sure you are using the latest version of Internet Explorer (version 9 and above), Firefox, Safari or Chrome.

Select the profile you want to work as then click Post Designer from the left column. This will default you to the Themes tab for Posts.

Under the Themes tab are a number of pre-designed images that you can select from and customize. Select the image you want to customize by clicking Edit Photo. This will take you to the Post Designer interface.

Click through the following topics to learn more about Post Designer.

Begin Editing

Each theme has a number of objects that you can customize. You can reveal the borders of each object by using your mouse to hover over different areas of the image. The image in the example below has six objects - four image objects, one text object and one shape object.

To edit an image, click on the image object as it appears in the image preview.

You can crop to the portion of the image you wish to use by dragging the handles in the thumbnail in the upper right corner of the Post Designer.

You can also change the image by uploading a new one, searching the database for pre-loaded images, or using photos you may have used recently in Post Designer. 

Use the handles in the image preview to re-size or rotate the image object. You can also click and drag to move the image object elsewhere on the image.

If your company has an official logo, use the Logo option to upload it. When formatting your logo you will have the same options like layering, opacity and scaling.
