I fell in love with rose gold when I first spotted my engagement ring. From then on, it was rose gold everything. Naturally, I wanted to add rose gold to my graphics. In this quick tutorial, I’m going to show you how to get rose gold, or any metallic color text with PicMonkey.
Before we get started, you’ll need to pick your rose gold texture. You can find an array of metallic texture images on creativemarket.com. They sell them at all different price points. My favorite set is a collection of 25 rose gold textures including foil, glitter, brushed metal, and vintage gold. Now that you have your rose gold texture, let’s get started.
1. Create a new document in PicMonkey.
2. Type your text on your document, choose your font, and scale it to the size that you want.
3. Click on “Graphic” on the left (the butterfly), then click “add your own” at the top of the page. From here you will upload your metallic swatch.
4. Make sure that your swatch is covering your text completely.
5. In the “Graphic” box, click the drop down under “Blend Modes” and select “Add” from the drop down menu.
Once you click on “add”, the black text will take on the color of your uploaded swatch.
6. Now it’s time to save your image. Click on Export at the top, then name your image and save it as a JPG by clicking the green “export to computer” button.
Now that you have saved your image, you’ll want to make it transparent. The JPG image that you just saved will have a white box behind it. In order to get your text transparent, you’ll want to go over to www.lunapic.com. LunaPic will allow you to make your image transparent.
7. Hover your cursor over “Edit” at the top of the page, then select “transparent background” at the bottom of the list.
8. Click on “choose file” and upload the rose gold text image that you saved form PicMonkey. Once your image is uploaded click once anywhere on the white part of the image.
9. Once you click on the white area of your image, it will now become transparent. Save your new transparent image by clicking “Save” at the bottom of the page.
That’s it! Now you can use your metallic rose gold text anywhere you want.
