Just some customization examples that I tried myself.
Let’s add a clipart
- I chose to add a Funny Clipart.
- I then selected “Bang”: click on this image and it automatically is inserted into the template.
- Next you can relocate (drag to position), resize, and rotate the clipart.
- In addition, a clipart dialog box opens allowing you to perform additional edits.
How about adding some text
- On the toolbar, click on Text.
- I chose Add Subheading.
- Next, I selected the font as shown.
- After inserting on template, you relocate, resize, and rotate the font.
- In addition, a Font dialog box opens allowing you to perform editional edits.
To fully comprehend the full potential of all the elements that are available, you need to play and experiment with each element to see what they can do. The final result is dependent on how creative you can be.

Everyone has one time or another had to create a poster or flyer for personal and work-related reasons.
Just a few examples:
