Placing an image inside a Shape

To place a photo image inside a circle or other shape, you need to use a Shape Mask element.

To locate Shape Mask elements, go to the 'Add Graphics' tab on the right side bar, and click on the 'Shape Masks' sub-category icon.

  1. Scroll through the results, and once you find a shape you like, add it to your design by clicking on it or dragging it onto the design.
  2. Once the element is on the design canvas, go to the Add Images tab in the right sidebar, and find the image you want to add.
  3. Drag the image from the sidebar over to the drop-zone shape on your design.
  4. When you hover the photographic image over the drop-zone shape, you should see a preview of the image appear in the shape. Release the mouse to place the image in the drop-zone.
  5. To edit the image further, including cropping the image, double click and the control handles and options for editing will appear in the top Actionbar.
