Images/ image creation

Photoshop is the most powerful but more complex program. But for creating social media images, it's so much easier for beginners to use Canva or PicMonkey.

Canva is probably the easiest tool to create compelling social media images for people who don't have a graphics background. I use it almost every day! Want to see what Canva is all about? Sign up for your free trial today! Try Canva Pro FREE for 30 days.

Canva provides a large set of templates – even with the free version of Canva. And with the paid Canva subscription, you'll get many additional premium templates and images. The Pro version of Canva provides over 60 million premium photos, images, icons and thousands of premium templates, easy resizing of your images, saving your brand colors, logos and fonts, using transparent images, animation, team templates and folders, and better organization with folders.

PicMonkey is an easy-to-use, popular graphics program. Many people are using it to create Pinterest and other social media images.
