Having an image get a detailed message across at just a glance is one great way to market your business, products or services. Even Twitter is adding images as they are re-tweeted up to 150%.
To add Infographics and powerful images to your social media campaigns check out these 7 tools below:
1. PicMonkey: PicMonkey is a really easy-to-use photo editing tool that runs in your browser. You can quickly and easily edit a single image, create a collage or put together a design–say, for a background or your Facebook cover image. I love how easy-to-use PicMonkey is, and that you can jump in straight away and give it a go without creating an account or even uploading your own photos.
2. Social Image Resizer Tool: The Social Image Resizer Tool is an absolute must-have if you need to quickly resize images for your social media profiles often. It lets you upload your own photos and easily resize them to set sizes for Facebook, Twitter and Google+, as well as custom sizes and common icon and avatar sizes. For Facebook in particular, getting the photo size and aspect ratio just right is crucial to have it appear large and clear in the newsfeed.
3. Timeline Slicer: Timeline Slicer is a brilliant tool for designing images for your Facebook Page or Profile. You can add your own images from your computer to pretty much any section of the mock-Facebook Page or Profile, and then edit them to fit. Once it’s in the right spot, you can resize, move and rotate the image until you’re happy with it. Afterwards, you can hit one of those green arrows to download the edited version of your image or click “Download All” to grab a .zip file of all the images you edited.4. Photovisi
5. BeFunky: Most of the tools on this list do one thing well, and make it easy. BeFunky is closer to a full photo editor that lives in your browser. The editor is still really easy to use, but it has features like cropping, red-eye and blemish fixes, filters, borders, text and collages. It also lets you grab your photos from more places than most, including your computer, Facebook, Flickr and your webcam.
6. Find and make Infographics: Infographics are especially popular on Pinterest or in blog posts. We’ve even shared some social media infographics here on the Buffer blog. A few tools have popped up to make creating infographics easier. Here are just a few you could try:
7. Make images from quotes: Another great way to make your social media posts more visual is to use quotes to make images. Here are some tools to help you do this, so you can share quotes on Pinterest, Instagram, Facebook and Twitter.
