In the past couple of months, I have been using three image creation tools to help with my blogging that I wanted to share with you.
It’s a free web based tool (although there is an upgrade option that I’ve not used myself) and is really easy to use. It helps you make modifications to your picture so at the end you get a better looking picture.It is simply an online photo editor.
I am not a Photoshop expert. It's been a long time since I have even used it and even longer since I was able to really use it well. I'm grateful I work with a graphic designer that can. However, I need to be able to use great images for my blog.
A new tool that I am using it more and more. It’s currently in beta but thanks to ProBlogger, I received a VIP account.
Canva is similar to PicMonkey in some ways in that you can pull in images and text to create great visuals. However, it comes with a lot of cool templates for different types of documents to get you started. It’s free to use but if you choose to use some of their images in your designs you will pay $1 per image for their use. I haven't paid yet. I have used all of my own images so far.
It is all drag and drop. I'm still learning about it's features.
Finding and using good quality images are important to bloggers.
The beauty of this website is that they email you monthly high-res photos that you can use for free on anything. How great is that? As of yesterday, I have received three emails and they have been great.
You can sign up here and once a month you’ll receive 10 free high-res photos that fit within a certain theme.
These are just a few of the things that have been helpful and make the visual elements for my blog more manageable.
