    Your Frequently asked questions answered

    Can I maintain margins while designing on Picmaker?

    An image that neglects using margins - is a mess.

    It looks rushed and communicates that you don't care about what you are selling. It all boils down to 1️⃣ simple thing: If you don't care, why should your audience❓

    This is why we have our Margin Feature to rescue you from such fiascos. Think of it this way: it i  as simple as using a box shape to give us a boundary to work to.

    Can I link my Picmaker design to an external website?

    You can now add a hyperlink 🔗 to your text, pictures, icons, or elements within your Picmaker design❗️

    No need to open a new tab and manually type a link. No need to scroll through numerous slides to show a reference.

    Just add hyperlinks to any design element in your artboard.

    Yes, it's that easy. ANY design element❗️

    Does Picmaker have a Print Bleed option?

    With our hottest new update, you can now activate Print Bleed on Picmaker.

    Print bleed is the part of the document 📄 that’s beyond the trim edge of the page. It’s ⅛ of an inch, serving as an allowance for potential cutting misalignments.

    If you don’t add this allowance, you’ll risk having white gaps on the edges of the final product.

    Think of it as a universal instruction to cut off until this part of the document, leaving no white gaps to the edge of the paper. Also, this serves as a guide for the designer itself to extend the image or elements of the design beyond the trim line.

    That’s all for now. Stay tuned for more updates❗️
