Another one of my personal favourites and another that I can not live without, when it comes to right-side left-side of brain, creative v’s analytical, I fall firmly on the latter, but I must say this amazing program has at least given me some hope that I can create acceptable and even more than acceptable graphics with my limited natural ability.
It’s user friendly mostly, although I do struggle to come to terms with their system of saving, sharing and organisation, I’m sure I’ll get my head around it sometime soon though. That aside the platform has some amazing features and very useful resources including:
- Free and paid images – a library of thousands of free stock photos and also optional paid stock photos for only $1 (less if you buy a block)
- Upload your own – you can of course upload your own images
- Free icons and shapes
- Hundreds of fonts
- Templates – they have pre formated templates for banners, blog posts, social media, marketing materials, book covers and much much more or you can customise your own.
One of the most useful tools for me is being able to create consistent custom size images for blog posts, blog titles and social media banners and thumbnails, no more trying to resize images to suit the space available, you simple redesign on the right sized template.
