How to Make Professional Images to use on Your Posts for Free and Without Design Knowledge
In this social media world, we all want to make the best images that we possibly can!
I used to struggle with this a lot, especially because my best attempt at designing things was on Microsoft Paint (and only the old version, because this new one is far more complicated than my capabilities allow).
After searching for a long time on how to design professional images without previous knowledge, I came across the best tool ever!
I knew I wanted to design my own Pins to promote myself on Pinterest, and also my book covers. I’ve read a lot of advice telling me to buy it on Fiverr for 5 bucks. But I thought I need to learn to design my own things. I can’t rely on expending 5 bucks every time I need a new image!
So I started searching the Internet, and between a lot of options like Canva and PicMonkey, I finally found the one platform for me!
Why I love it so much:
1- It’s online;
2- It has a perfect free version (that I use), and the free version has literally ALL THE FEATURES. The only difference is that in the paid one, you can upload your logo. I still don’t understand why someone would use that if they can upload images (and your logo as an image…).
3- It has a copyright free image database, so you don’t need to look for it on another website;
4- It helps you with a suggestion on the design;
5- It looks super professional and appealing (actually this whole site was created there);
6- It can get you inspired to go deeper on image creation. Actually, I bought a Photoshop course after learning how to use this, because I realized how fun it is to design images on the internet.
Keep in mind that I am not affiliated with Adobe Spark whatsoever, I just genuinely love it. I never see any bloggers talking about it. Everybody focus only on Canva, and I honestly feel this one is better. Canva has the problem of having a lot of paid features. If you want the best, you have to pay. This one is free.
You can click on the image if you want to go to the website.
After registering, you can choose which kind of project you would like to make. There is a ton to chose from and if you don’t find the right fit, you can easily customize its size.
Once you have done that, you don’t need to look for pictures without copyright elsewhere, because they have their own database.
You can change the text, and my favorite thing is that they have a ‘magical’ text style feature. In this, they will keep suggesting different fonts and styles until you find one appealing to you!
Here you can see it!
You can remove that SP Adobe Spark simply by clicking at it!
Here are some books cover that I’ve done with this tool, easily and WITHOUT previous design knowledge:
My next book cover: (BTW, what do you think of it? Leave a comment telling me!)
And I also designed my logo there:
I can’t draw and I don’t know anything about Photoshop or any other Adobe product, but this one just makes things EASY.
Try it for yourself and save you a ton of trouble. It’s especially useful if you want to design your Amazon’s book covers.
The best part: It’s free!
And the best thing about this is that it’s free! When you design a post, you’ll see a small square with ‘Adobe Spark’ at the bottom of your image. The first time I used it, I thought ‘oh, boy!’ and almost gave up. But if you click on it, you’ll be able to remove it! They explain that you have the option to upgrade Adobe Spark and use your brand on your pictures! But since I do not wish to do that, I simply use the free version, that is complete and without other irritating ads!
