One of the techniques I use is to batch my graphics. So, if I know I want to schedule a quote on Pinterest every other day, I make sure I carve out 10 minutes to create 12-15 quote imagess at a time. It really takes me very little time to create these and my followers love them on Pinterest. You can do the same with every type of graphic you design and ”batch ’em up” so you spend the least amount of time and put out the best quality content for your fans, followers and subscribers.
¡Esta si me encanta! That was spanish for “I love this one!”. Share as image lets you highlight text anywhere on the web and turn it into a text image in seconds. It also lets you customize the colors, backgrounds and even allows for your own background upload. ($8/month)
Quozio is also very nifty but a little limited in the customization. You can easily add any text to their pre-selected backgrounds and they provide are really simple ‘pin’ functionality so you can upload your graphics straight to Pinterest.
I’ve been using Pinstamatic for the longest time… It lets you create some really funky stuff with your pins and even snaps a screenshot of any webpage for you.
My all-time favorite design tool, Canva! Ok, there’s so much you create with this tool it’s ridiculous. The best part? It’s free. If you haven’t already, get your butt to Canva.com & register your account.
