Creating Your Own Project
We will begin by creating a new document in Comic Life. We will learn how to choose a page style and a page template for our document. Next, we will add an image, and learn how to resize and reposition that image. We will add and edit caption text and comic lettering. Finally, we will print and save our Internet safety poster.
