Did you know you can not only download icons from the huge Icons8 library but also edit and customize them right there? Check the brief video tutorial to see how.
This quick guide will give you a deeper glance at special effects and features you can use to customize an icon. That’s one of the important aspects that make Icons8 not just a library of icons but an interactive design tool. You can change the icon color, add various visual effects like background, padding, circle or square frame, and even add text to the icon right there. It saves time and makes life much easier for our users that need custom images for their social media posts, slides, web, and graphic design projects. Welcome to try by yourself!
Look closer at some features you could try for the icon you need to edit:
- choose and change the color of the background, either from the offered palette or by color code
- recolor any element of the original icon
- overlay another icon
- add text to the icon
- add the shape such as a circle, square, or stroke around the icon
- customize the shape properties such as size and corner radius
Try it for your creative projects and have fun!
