Apps for Awesome Social Media Visuals

93% of the most engaging images on Facebook include graphics.  Are your social media graphics up to par?  Have no fear if you aren’t a designer or a photoshop expert. There are some great tools out there that make creating social media visuals a snap and will make you look like a pro in no time! Here are a few of my BombDiggity favorites.

Canva

Canva is a one-stop cloud-based graphic shop. From Facebook to blog to Instagram to slides, Canva has size-optimized and template ideas galore.

You can choose your layout, purchase quality stock photography, and customize the look and feel. If you upgrade, you can even upload your own fonts and color palette in order to keep your designs consistent with your overall brand.  Beginners can easily use the templates that are provided and more advanced graphic designers have the ability to create from a blank slate.  From beginner to expert, it really is impressive!

There is no software to download and for a basic account, it is free!
