Ever since I started blogging, Stencil has been the only image design software I use. I can’t remember exactly how I discovered it but I think it was recommended in a blog post.

After one or two designs, I figured out how to work my way through it. I started creating amazing images with Stencil and today I will show you how to create amazing images with Stencil too.

An Introduction to what Stencil is

As earlier mentioned, Stencil is a software application for creating beautiful and unique image designs. It’s an easy-to-use graphic design tool. With over 245,000 users.

There are over 2 million stock photos to use, 1000+ templates, 3000 Google web fonts, 100,000+ quotes to customize and make yours, browser extension( my favourite), 2 million-plus icons & graphics, 75+ custom sizes to pick from and you can create your own templates.

Stencil works perfectly well on any modern browser and it has extensions which makes accessing it easy.

4 Reasons why you will love Stencil

1. Stencil is very easy to use. It didn’t take me long before I knew how to navigate around the entire app.

It’s not one of those apps you crack your brain figuring out where all the features are. They are visible and boldly written.

I have tried using some software to design images and none was as easy as Stencil. Perhaps I’m the one who couldn’t figure it out but I assure you you need little brain work to get Stencil working for you.

2. You can use it for free for as long as you want. For a beginner trying to understand it it’s okay starting free.

However, there are limitations to a free account. Like having just 10 images every month. What! It is too small if you need to create lots of images to share on all the social media platforms you’re on.

Hence, upgrade your account as soon as you are done learning how to use it because it is very affordable. You can upgrade with $9/month.

3. It has a WordPress Plugin which allows you to create your photos while writing your post which makes work faster. Read how to install the plugin and use it on WordPress

As a content creator, the last thing you want is an app difficult to navigate. Time is never our friend hence, we need to save it. Stencil helps you with that. I spend little time creating images and once I am done imagining how the design will be, I go straight to work.

4. This post is created to save you tons of time. I will be showing you everything about stencil and you don’t have to spend too much time navigating. All you will do is go straight to work.

How to Navigate Stencil for Beginners

Below is how stencil looks like once you log in. However, if you don’t have an account this tutorial is useless. Why don’t you go ahead and create one here? I am using a free account for this tutorial.

I believe your account is set now so let’s move on.

At the left side menu where Stencil is boldly written, you will see photos, templates, quotes, uploads, logos/watermarks and saved images.

Besides the menu, are the featured photos. Where you have thousands of photos to choose from. Above is a search bar, where you can search for the type of photo you want.

Not too far from the left in the middle to your right is the canvas. That’s where the magic happens. Below the canvas is where you choose the size and shape of it.
