What style are you using? Ink or Limelight?

If you mean making the character hold a phone using full body animation (click on the image above to enlarge it).

If you mean a closeup of the phone with just a part of the hand, if you go to overlays and type in SELFIE, you’ll find really cool ones to use.

Hey, I need a little help. I want to use an app “iFake”. If I want to make the text messages step by step, should I do several backgrounds with messages?

Yes or use format phonetext will be easier

Hello! @Apes
So I’m using the format phonetext, and I’m using my own background. Is there anyway to change the color of the names from gray? Otherwise you can’t see who’s talking. :confused:

No, unfortunately, you can only change one character to a blue bubble (and have their name blue)

Eeeee I’m excited, this is very helpful!!
