Even though videos are attracting more social media views lately, images are still a strong second. I have come up with this image editing resource for social sharing so you can create images that will make people share.
65 percent of the population are visual learners. It is no surprise then that images produce a large amount of engagement for social media networks. Being an artist you have an upper hand over others business owners. You will be able to produce breathtaking images that have a great chance of going viral. The more people that you can reach more the more you are building your brand. Eventually, people will be interested in learning more about you and what you have to offer.
I have come up with this list of image editing services to make your job easier to create eye-catching images.
Image Editing Resource
Picmonkey is one of my favorite image editing sites. There is a free plan, or you can pay for a premium plan for extra features. The free program offers more that you need to create beautiful images. You can edit, resize and add effects with one click. If you would like to add text, PicMonkey has a broad range of text that you can pick from. The best feature is that it is very easy to use. You will not have to spend lots of time learning how to edit and create images.
Canva is my other go-to site for editing and creating images. If you are going to create an image from scratch for social sharing, Canva makes it easy. Most social media sites have different image dimensions. Canva has the most popular social network image sizes as temples. Pick what social network you are going to share on, click and create.
BeFunky is another great image creating a site, similar to Canva and PicMonkey. BeFunky provides templates for social media headers, blogs, and business. You will enjoy their user-friendly interface.
