When it comes to creating graphics and visual content you need for your website or social media that looks amazing – you need a graphic designer. What do you do when you don’t have the money to hire one or the time to learn how to do it yourself? Here are 5 tools that can help you create visual content and graphics fast, with a minimal learning curve.
LogoCreator – (affiliate link) This is without a doubt my all-time favorite when it comes to creating graphics. What makes the LogoCreator so attractive it is super simple, yet super powerful. It comes with hundreds of images and templates. You can launch a template and and load in the graphics you want. You can even import other photos or images to work on as well. You can also export images with a transparent background.
Canva – It’s really easy to use and you can create all types of images – from Facebook cover images to social sharing images and quotes. You can also create Twitter headers and much more. Canva is free to use and has lots of upgrades available for a small fee.
SlicerApps – (affiliate Link) This online tool is one of my secret weapons – a true gem that you’ve probably never heard about. Slicer Apps allows you to easily create images for YouTube, Facebook, and podcasts. What makes Slicer Apps special is the ease of use and the ability to create YouTube thumbnail graphics. The YouTube thumbnail graphic creator is by far the best I’ve ever seen or used, and that alone is worth the price for this app. However, the Slicer doesn’t stop there, you can also get the Facebook slicer which makes creating graphics for Facebook a breeze. This includes Facebook timeline and Facebook ads.
DollarPhotoClub – (affiliate link) Dollar Photo Club offers all its images for a single dollar. There is no red tape and no hidden costs. Dollar Photo Club is an ever-expanding library of over 22 million stock images available for just $1 each. Finding the perfect image that fits your creativity and business needs has never been easier.
DigitalJuice – Once you are ready for some serious graphics, here is a resource professional designers may not want you to know about. Digital Juice offers high end, hi resolution professional graphics, stock photos, stock videos, special effects and fonts. Most of their products are layered so you can easily make them your own in any editor like TheLogoCreator. This allows you to get professional designer images easily and quickly by just downloading the background and stock images you need to create your graphics. I highly recommend you check it out.
If you’re going to spend time creating visual content, it makes sense to choose tools that make your job easier. The resources above offer options for just about every marketing need you’ll encounter. Plus they’re easy to learn and use, to produce quality graphics.
