SampleBoard consists of components. Each palette, panel or toolbar contains specific tools and controls to help you accomplish the task at hand quickly and efficiently.

The areas where you’ll find all of your editing and design controls:

  1. Main toolbar: upload images, search stock photos, browse templates, add text

  2. Right side toolbar: canvas size, image editing and product details management

  3. Bottom toolbar: canvas manager, preview moodboard and preview purchase list

  4. Top toolbar: group images, crop, clone and delete images

  5. Top navigation bar: save your moodboard or create a new one

Let's learn about each area and what it does
