Step 3

Now you have a wanted poster template—a wanted poster example ready to be filled with your own information. Let’s start with the photo: go to the right and click Custom Image.

Step 4

Pick your photo and give it a second to upload. I used this photo.

Step 5

To make the photo fit its space in the poster, you need to crop it properly. Use the slider to resize the photo, and then drag it for the best frame. When you’re done, click Crop.

Step 6

A special filter will be added to your photo to give it the style of a traditional wanted poster. Now, let’s add the text. To the left you have all the text fields currently used—you can remove them or add another one. You can also change the font and color, and you can resize or move the text.

Personally, I like the style of this wanted poster, so I’ve just replaced the text with something custom.

Step 7

You also have control over the other colors in the poster—the background color and the color of the ornaments. Play with them to see what works best.

Step 8

Additionally, you can add a graphic to the poster. You can choose from a very extensive list of symbols, or upload your own image.
