Code Like A Girl

Make amazing facebook images in under 60 seconds with Vintage Font

Some girls code. And some girls are app designers, app marketers, QA apps and publish apps.

I run my app business by concentrating on the marketing and design elements of my apps. This is where I am strongest, and I outsource the rest. There was many ways to be involved in technology. Coding is just the beginning!

For some of the facebook groups I manage, I needed a great app to make fast, cool, commercial use images for sharing on social media.

I looked through the app store, and all the apps there had commercial limitations. So I decided to make a premium typography app called Vintage Font

Here is my step by step guide to create a beautiful social media image in under 60 seconds, with Vintage Font for iPhone and iPad.

You can download Vintage Font for free on the Apple app store.

STEP 1: Download the app to your iPhone or iPad from the app store.

STEP 2: Open the app on your device.

To create your new image, you can use a picture from your camera roll, or you can take a new photo with your camera.

You can also use the supplied backgrounds in the app.

For this example you can tap the ‘Backgrounds’ button on the middle right of the screen.

STEP 3: Choose your favorite background. We are going to use the coffee cup. Then choose your preferred size. We are going to choose the ‘facebook post’ size, as we want to publish this final image to facebook.

STEP 4: Select an size to crop your image.

STEP 5: On the next screen, you can edit the text you want to layer on top of your photo. Double tap the screen to type in your text.

STEP 6: This is the fun part! Choose your favorite typography and layout for your text. You can pinch the text to make it smaller, or expand the text to make it larger.

You can also change the color of the text.

STEP 7: Tap SAVE in the top corner of the screen when you are finished.

Congratulations! You have now created an awesome Vintage Font image ready to share to facebook.
