Ripl 101: post template selection guide

Updated: Sep 16, 2020


We add new post templates weekly to your Inspire page on the Ripl app, and we're continually expanding our collection. With so many options to choose from, sometimes it can be challenging to find the best post template to showcase your content.


Here's a quick guide to the types of post templates available in the Ripl app:



COLLAGES

Collage post templates are perfect to show a combination or collection of various images. Collages are more visual -- they have limited text and short animation so that you can add lots of photos.

SLIDESHOWS

Slideshow post templates are great if you want to tell a story or narrative because you can have different text for each slide. Each photo you add will become a new "slide." Some slideshow templates will have a cover slide for your logo or call-to-action. Learn how to create a slideshow post here.

BANNERS & OVERLAYS

Banner & Overlay post templates are a great way for the text to be the focal point because your text will stay persistent throughout.


The banner or overlay adds context to your photos. Some banner templates have transparency so your images can still peek through.

STICKER & SHAPES

Sticker & Shape post templates are a fun way to quickly create a post. These templates tend to be great for quotes or a simple call-to-action.


The shapes themselves will typically animate and most have pre-set text so you can quickly promote a sale, new deal and more.


SEASONAL

Seasonal post templates can help you share a themed message for holidays or seasons.


You'll find post templates in this category are great for all the seasons. There are sparkling firework designs, floating shapes and more so you can put a unique seasonal spin on your marketing.
