Hangout Lower Third Graphic - Add Your Name to Hangout Screen - set up tips


Hangout Lower Third Graphic - Add Your Name to Hangout Screen - set up tips

Using the Hangout Lower Third Banner is very important if you use Google Plus Hangouts. Find Ronnie on G+ This training video shows you how to turn it on and customize it for your use.

A couple G+ers asked me if I had a video showing how to use the Hangout Toolbox's Lower Third sub-App. I did not have one handy, so we made one. This handy tool allows you to add your name or website or whatever short piece of text you like on screen when you are in a Google Plus Hangout.

Besides using the standard options shown here, you can also build your own *Custom Overlay* graphics...(examples here: 6:00) to do so, use the size of 640 x 360 and save as a .PNG format if you have any areas that should remain transparent. You can save as a JPG, but that will totally cover the screen (good for branding) which may be what you need.

Remember that your graphic should be a transparent PNG with dimensions 640 x 360 (or up to 1280 x 720). And design it so that it doesn't cut of your chin while you talk. :-)

Hangout Tip - Custom Overlay Special Effects (Lower Third)

Here's a Cool Hangout Tip: When making a Hangout Lower Third Custom Overlay Graphic this evening I discovered a cool trick... Glowing Edges! Visit Ronnie on G+ at:

I loaded a PNG Graphic for my Custom Overlay Image, Saved it, Kept it ON, and then turned it on *Again* as a Custom Overlay... Instant Neon Glow Special Effect! Very appropriate as the hangout I was using it for was one with Daria Musk performing Live at Stonehenge in NYC... The Live HOA was being shown on one of the Massive Billboards in Times Square! So my special effect had extra meaning!
