An image is worth a thousand words
We are currently living in a society where Technology and Social Media rule and the way we communicate is right at our fingertips. Our text messages, wall posts, tweets or snap chats are delivered immediately. It is always accompanied by an image which says more than a thousand words. It piques our curiosity and leaves us wanting more right?
I have already shared with you some fabulous photography websites where you can search and find free, high-quality, original, colorful photos to be used in for your updates on any of the many social media platforms.
Now I would like to share with you 5 Awesome Photo Editing Tools for Social Media
that I currently use and how they improve my own photos as well as those I download from the sites mentioned previously.
Here they are in no specific order:
Canva is a very cool site where you can create or design stunning and visually attractive images from scratch, by uploading your own photography and customize it for the social media account you wish to publish it on.
What’s great about Canva is that you can also select among the free pictures and layouts, change the font and text and prepare it to download!
There are tons of images for purchase for a very low price but the choice is endless.
I have my images saved and can go back anytime to modify and download them as necessary.
BTW another awesome feature I LOVE is the design type, I have been playing around with blog graphics, résumé builder, biz cards etc.
To honest, it can be quite addictive but it is quite a lot of fun to use!
Finding Landscape photo editing tool by Sprout Social truly surprised me. It is a true gem that I am glad exists!
The great feature or function is that it will resize any of your photos for the chosen social media network and it even has different size options or it can be customized to your specifications.
You really cannot go wrong and you will have an image that will stand out from the rest. Isn’t that what we’re all after?
I have a confession to make. I am a HUGE fan of PicMonkey; it is actually my absolute favorite photo editing tool and use it for just about every photo for my blog posts!
It is super easy to use. All you need to do is simply follow the instructions according to type of image you are editing or enhancing. The results are no less than spectacular. I often found myself saying “Wow, this great…now it’s ready to go”.
What I love the most are the many filters, effects and fonts that you can choose to make your image simply memorable!
Even if I regularly use it for individual photos, I’ve to try to do a collage one of these days.
I honestly do not know how I ended up finding Pixteller ( I love to search on Google) but as soon as I discovered it, I loved it!
After going through the sign up procedure, you can start creating banners, posters, add text to a picture and so more.
I mostly use it to create Pinterest images which have helped me greatly and just by looking at the analytics in the past few weeks, I realize that it has made a big difference and will continue to improve my already existing boards! BTW you can find me there as Travellersoul (add me and I’ll add you right back).
Besides the loving the fact that it is absolutely free, you can share your images on your other accounts!
It’s a win-win situation. Try it!
As their slogan says, it is simple but powerful. Fotor is a great online photo editing tool that allows you to edit, create collages and design your own images and later shared.
Their dashboard is pretty straight-forward, the only thing you need to do is to select the dimension or format for the desired platform and then proceed to create.

The final image is the one that you find above. It is very quick and easy and looks great!
Love Quotes? We all do.

I used it for my post on How to Get More Followers on Twitter

It is super easy, simply enter the desired quote (copy + paste), select the style or frame you want it to appear on and last step is to click on create and voilà! Your design is ready to be downloaded and shared. What’s not to love about it? 🙂
