Hi guys! Today I want to show you how to customize your premade logo using Corjl. If you’ve made it to this page, it’s likely you have recently purchased a premade logo that is intended to be edited using Corjl. If you haven’t already purchased one, feel free to check my awesome designs out HERE. Just in case you’re unsure about whether or not designing your own logo is for you, you can TRY IT BEFORE YOU BUY IT!! How great is that?!
So first things first, my screenshots will look a bit different than your screen due to the type of account but it is still very similar and should lead you down the right path. I’ll also show some screenshots from the demo version to give you a better idea of where things are located on your screen. If you want to try it out for yourself using the demo below, simply CLICK HERE.
The great thing about this program is that it has a layers pane. To access the layers pane, click the arrow in the bottom right corner. To select a layer, simply click the layer name. If it’s a text layer, you will now see the text box to edit your text about the layers pane. To lock a layer, click the lock to the left of the layer name in the layers panel. This will lock the layer preventing you from editing it or moving it. This is especially useful if you want to move other layers around but keep a particular layer in it’s place. Once you’ve locked the layers you don’t want to move, you can click and drag your mouse from corner to corner of your logo to select all of the other layers then simply drag them where you want them.
There’s two ways you can edit text, the first is the simply click the text you want to edit and this will pop up the text pane on the right. The second way to get this to come up is to click on the text layer in the layers pane. Once your text pane is up, you’ll see multiple options. To change your text, click in the box with the words you want to change and write what you want it to say. Down below, you can also change the font, text color and text size and placement. Below that is “Style Text” which has even more customizations that you can make. Just click the arrow to expand the window.
Start by writing out your words. Then click the glyph icon (to the right of the font drop down box). This will show you all of the glyphs for your font. Click on the one you want to use then click “copy” at the bottom in blue. Back in your text box, select the letter you want to replace in your text and delete it then paste the new letter by either right clicking and selecting “paste” or use the shortcut (COMMAND+V on Mac) (CONTROL+V on Windows). This will place the special glyph in your text.
Editing Your Watermark
If you purchased from me, each logo comes with two versions, a colorful version and a similar version but with plain black text. This is so that you can make watermarks out of any logo you purchase from me. You can also change the black text color to white (or any other color) so that your logo shows up on dark images. (I’ll show you how to do this down below!) To get to the black text logo, simply click the next page button.
To change the text color to white after you have edited it how you want it, first duplicate the page. Do this by clicking the clear paper icon with the gray page behind it (see below). You’ll know you’ve duplicated the page because you will now have three pages instead of two. Now select the text layer you want to change in the layers pane (or by clicking the word on your logo). Click the color swatch in the text pane then choose your new color. (I usually do a black and a white one in addition to the colored version so that you have one that will contrast any image you need it to in the future.) Do this for each text layer.
Save and Download
To save your file, just click the save icon to the left of the logo. (Your save button will be in a slightly different place than mine in the image below.) Then click “download” to download your file. It will then ask you what file format you want to download it in. For logos, it’s good to keep a JPEG version and a PNG version of each logo. JPEG files have white backgrounds and are what you would typically use across the web. PNG files have transparent backgrounds and are used for watermarking images (laying your logo over a photo for branding purposes).
That’s all for today. I hope this gives you a good idea of how to edit your new logo(s)! If you end up purchasing a logo from me and have any questions, please feel free to reach out!
