Share

I have written before about being graphically challenged, and I know there are a lot of people who cannot use Photoshop (or simply cannot afford it), so I have done some more research and found 6 ways that you can create some super cool images – really simply and easily – promise!

Images are very popular, and get lots of likes and shares which helps your Facebook edgerank, gets more of your fans seeing your posts, and friends of fans too, therefore increasing your online visibility, leading to more leads and sales.

So it is well worth trying these tips, and it’s fun too!

To create my pins these days I tend to use the LOGO CREATOR which is a paid tool, but I will shoot you a video on that very soon. These are all free sites you can use…

Pinstamatic

You can do such a lot with this one:-

Roflbot

This is a site where you can use a RANDOM IMAGE from their database, and add text or add your own image. With this site though you will need to save to your computer before pinning it, so it is a bit more trouble than others, but you can post directly to Facebook from this site, so that is a bonus.

Quozio

This is a site which allows you to type in a quote and then choose a background for it – couldn’t be easier – HERE”S AN EXAMPLE

PinWords

You can upload an image of your own or you can use one of the PinWords backgrounds. Then select your text type, enter your own text and click the pin it button to upload to Pinterest. You can also save the image and upload it to your blog or post on Facebook. Don’t forget to brand the image with your website url.  HERE”S AN EXAMPLE

Picmark

This one allows you to upload your image and frame it, and add your title text – you can then upload directly to Facebook, Twitter or Pinterest – simple to use and very effective. HERE”S ONE I MADE EARLIER

So there you have 5 quick and easy ways to create those all important Pinterest images – do give them a try and let me know what you think.

    I’m becoming less graphically challenged the more I experiment with all the cool appliations out there, so thanks for these. I’ve found PicMonkey good as well – they have seasonal images and layers you can add.

  2. I don’t think I’ll EVER become less graphically challenged – just looking at the pins you produced for this post makes my brain curl up into a corner and threaten to stay there until I move on to something else! lol

    Thanks for the great ideas, though

  5. Hi Sue,

    This may only be a short post but yet again you’ve over delivered in my opinion.

    I must be sounding like a complete newbie as everytime I read one of your posts I learn so much.

    Thanks for these great pointers.

    Regards,
    Dean.

    Now I am getting better with images as time goes by but I appreciate you sharing all these cool sites with us. Dang, I’m going to have to spend some time on them all.

    Thank you Sue for all these wonderful resources and for showing us all the ropes.

    Hi Sue,

    What a range of useful resources! I have always wondered how those lovely images with quotes were created, but somehow never got round to learning. Will go research it and learn at last. I have noticed that there are other interesting articles in your blog – must catch up with my reading!

    Have a lovely Christmas! :)

  9. Hi Sue,
    I’m going to have to start following you closely. Social Media is something I know very little about.
    I definitely have to get up to speed with it.
    You’re providing some great info here. I look forward to learning a thing or two from you, if you don’t mind me siphoning the info from here, purely for my own use? LOL.

  10. Sue,

    I’ve also seen some Meme Creators online. I’m sure you’re aware that memes are HOT right now. They can quickly go viral and make any site get tons of traffic (might not be targeted that well). But a lot of people are traffic mongers so they’ll take it anyway.

    Here’s a big one:

    There’s a ton more out there too

      Hi Phil

      I bought a meme creator a while ago but since I bought the Logo Creator I have not used it.

      Your link looks like a good site – will try that – thanks for sharing.

      Thanks for stopping by and have a really great Christmas
      Sue

  11. Great fun, Sue – I’d come across Pinwords, but none of the others.

    I’ve already had a play and made a pin of my twitter profile with Pinstamatic – fantastico!

    I’ll definitely bookmark and share this one – and I’ll certainly be back. Social media’s not my strongest point, so I’m sure I have a lot to learn from you,

    Thanks very much for a really helpful post.

    Thanks for the Pinterest links and tips. I will be getting my teath into pinterest sometime soon, so I bookmarked your page for future reference.

    I just purchased a new camera, so I have a little side hobby to concentrate on. Why not share them with the world.

    Cheers Sue and thanks for the links 😀
