My Space is where you can see all your creations.

Backgrounds

Go to the background menu on the left sidebar. The canvas background is the area of your creation that’s always visible.The base background is only visible on bigger screens and is designed so that content fits and looks good regardless of the size of the device.Find images and GIFs or upload your own.Backgrounds can be solid colors, premade ones from Genially, or search Pixabay. They even have animated backgrounds.

Text

Just click in a text box to start editing or add text from the left sidebar. There are preset font combinations and text boxes to make it easy. All the standard options to change font, size, bold, color, etc. is available across the top.

In the top toolbar, click on Edit image for options, like crop, flip in all directions, or zoom.You can change the size by dragging one of the corners of an image. Change the transparency and play with the order of the layers .

This is cool!

Interactive question

Publish

It will ask you to publish before you can share or move to present mode. To publish your genially for the first time, and to be able to share it, you need to indicate that it’s ready to go. Click on All set and you’ll see the publishing options.

1. In the Editor, click on the Share button in the top right corner of the screen. If you don’t see this option, it means you need to publish your genially.2. In the Link tab, you’ll see the Social page option, where you can copy the link or view your creation on its social page.

Share

The URL of your genially is unique and never changes. Even if you modify your genially, its web address stays the same, and the people who have the link will always see the latest version.

Trick:

Interactivity is the key to capturing the interest and attention of your audience. A genially is interactive because your audience can explore and engage with it.

Use if you want something new to be discovered by hovering the mouse over the text/image. This is best for short messages, labels, and descriptions.

Did you know...

Every month there are new free templates. Premium templates (paid subscription) have a star sticker on them.

If you’re looking for more ideas, go back to the main Panel (on the left) and go to the Inspiration section. Here you’ll find treasures from the whole Genially community. Want to know the best part? Lots of them are reusable, so you can use these geniallys like templates. Use the filter to find the treasure even faster.

Did you know... We retain 42% more information when the content moves? It is perhaps the most effective resource to capture your audience's attention.

With this function...You can add additional content that excites your audience's brain: videos, images, links, interactivity... Whatever you want!

Is it a bird? Is it a plane? It's a space where you can talk about the mission and vision of your project.

Visual communication is a key tool. We find it easier to 'read' images than to read written text. That's why disciplines like Visual Thinking facilitate visually rich note-taking through the use of images, charts, infographics, and simple drawings.

WOW Effect

The interactivity and animation can be your best allies to make the content fun.

When you click the Window option, a box with text, images, video, or other content opens. Choose the size of your window and add all the content you need.

Therefore, animations are perhaps the most effective resource to capture the attention of your audience and make a match with the public.

You can add a link to an external website or to another genially. Select the new tab display option if you don’t want them to leave your genially.
