3 Social Media Design Tools We Love
Do you want social media images that are of high quality? If you want all your images to have a consistent look and if you are in search of easy to use tools, there are some good options for you. When it comes to maintaining your social media brand image, quality pictures are essential. Here are three outstanding social media design tools to use.
The first option is called Canva. This tool is respected, well known and most importantly, free! You do have the option to purchase premium photos and graphics, but the basics do not cost anything. When getting started, you must either sign up or log in if you already have an account. First, you will choose a canvas size. If you are creating a graphic that is to be used on a specific platform, choose your canvas appropriately. For a general canvas that works for everything, pick the social media option. This one is 800 by 800 pixels. The social media option is best for things like Facebook, Instagram, LinkedIn and Twitter. When creating your graphic, there are options to choose a background photo, upload an image, add text, add a color overlay and upload your logo.
When it comes to social media design tools, Google Slides is another great option. Google Slides is free, and it is part of Google Drive. So, you will have access to this feature if you have a free Google account. Basically, this tool is just like Microsoft PowerPoint, just simplified and cloud based. It is very easy to use, and it is excellent for group work and collaboration. It allows more than one person to work on the document at the same time in real time. When you are finished, you will be able to download your graphics in JPEG, PDF, PNG and in PowerPoint formats. Getting started is a breeze – simply sign in to Google Drive and choose Google Slides in the upper left corner. Just line with Canva, you can upload your image, create a background and add an overlay, logo and text.
The third of these design tools is called DesignBold. This one is quite similar to Canva, but it has some different template styles and features. You can choose to get a premium membership for additional features, but you don’t need one. Like with the other two, you can create stellar graphics with DesignBold. Now that you know of three good tools for image creation, get started with making some attention-grabbing pictures for your business!
