How to Customize the Colors in Your Videos
Tis the season for all things spooky! And with the season’s change – it’s time to update that color palette. Fun fact: DYK – if you are a professional or business user you can easily swap out your brand colors for any color you want? It’s true!
Instead of sticking with the same ‘ol same ‘ol. Try swapping your brand colors for any of these hex’s that will make you feel like, dare we say it – a “real designer.”
