5 Best Social Media Image Sites

Whether you’re posting images for your blog or for your social networks – from Facebook, Instagram or Google+ to Pinterest, Twitter or LinkedIn – here are my 5 favorite free tools that help you create cool graphics that rock!

5 Free Social Media Image Sites

1. WordSwag is one of my favorite apps for the iPhone (and one reason I selected an iPhone vs. an Android). You can pull in an image from your Camera Roll or search WordSwag for an image. Then, select from a variety of fun and creative fonts, brand it with your name, URL and/or logo and VOILA – you have created an image unique to you and your brand. The “Hello World” image above was created with WordSwag.

2. Pixabay  is a fabulous source for free images. They call themselves “a repository for stunning public domain pictures.” The site includes royalty free stock photos and copyright free vector graphics and it states that, “You can use any Pixabay image without attribution in digital and printed form, even for commercial applications.”

3. Canva provides you with choices to create images not only for your social networks, but for documents (such as letters and presentations) or marketing materials (i.e., posters, flyers, business cards). It even allows you to insert your own dimensions and create a custom size. They are just now releasing Canva for Work (a free trial and then there will be a monthly fee). They are calling it the social media marketer’s dream because it makes it simple to resize images for your social networks. Here’s an image I created in Canva for the launch of my book Millionaire Marketing on a Shoestring Budget.

4. Pixlr is an online photo editor that allows you to create a new image or open one from your computer or specific URL. I often use my own images with this tool and insert content such as a quote from my book.

5. Picmonkey allows you to create collages. I use it to create fun collages for Facebook Cover images such as this one below that I posted at the beginning of 2015. I actually created the collage in Picmonkey and added the text to it using Pixlr.

Have you used any of these image tools? Or do you have one you’d like to share? Please post your comments below because I’d love to hear from you.
