According to ShareAsImage.com:
Photo tweets are 94% more likely to be shared than text-based tweets.
It's no secret that graphics and images get more engagement and shares across social media. They are also a great way to illustrate your blog posts and other documents (newsletters, PDF files, etc).
But how do you create beautiful quote graphics with no real graphics skills?
You're in luck! I'll show you a FREE (and super easy) solution...
First, you start with a quote. You can find quotes on just about any topic you can imagine. We were able to find tons of quotes about cub scouts even, when Sherry and I were looking at quote graphics for her site at Cub Scout Ideas.
(Sherry's site is super cool by the way so check it out if you have cub scouts, or if you know parents that do be sure to share her site with them!)
Whatever your topic, you'll find a quote for it at BrainyQuote.com. You can search by author, keyword or category - and they have tons of quotes to choose from.
Once you find a quote you like, click on it to open it on it's own page:
Below the quote, you'll see an option to "share as image" - click that button. A design window will pop up allowing you to choose a background for your quote graphic, edit the font and colors, etc.
Choose a relevant background image that matches your quote, and edit it to suit you. Then click the Save and Share button at the bottom right.
Once you click Save and Share it will show you your image and give you the option to share it on your social media channels right there on that page. You can do that - but you may want to share it on your Facebook Page, use it in a blog post, or save it to your hard drive to illustrate a document, etc.
Simply click the "View Image Page" link:
On this page, you can right click and then click "Save Image As" to save these Quote Graphics to your hard drive:
Here's an example of a beautiful quote graphic I created earlier today, using a quote by Benjamin Franklin from BrainyQuote.com. It literally took just a few short minutes to create it, save it & share it:
I know what you're thinking... that background image doesn't really match that quote! Right? I did that on purpose, lol. I used it to make a point.
I shared it on my Facebook Page with a relevant message:
All of the quote graphics you create at BrainyQuote.com have a creative commons license, and are free to use for both personal and commercial use.
Want to create image graphics with your own photos & sayings?
Also see these cool Marketing Graphics templates. Those are both great resources I use myself in addition to BrainyQuote.
Have fun creating beautiful quote graphics for your social media channels, or to illustrate your blog posts and other documents! 😀 *cheers*
