101 Blogging Tips (Part 54) How Great Graphics Can Transform Your Blog
When it comes to blogging or creating a website nice pictures. logos and graphics can make or break your blog.
For the first few years I struggled with my websites and Facebook etc because of a lack of tools and understanding when it came to website graphics . After lots of trial and error I finally figured out what I was doing and discovered some cool tools to create logos, Facebook banners, website banners and other graphics.
Yes of course you can go to websites and buy photographs for your website but if you are just starting out on the Internet it can work out pretty expensive especially if you are producing a lot of content regularly.
Of course some people just go to Google images but the problem with that is a lot of the images that show up may be subject to copyright. In fact there are a lot of online photo companies that purposely put lots of copyright pictures on the internet and then threaten to sue you for using their images or send you a large bill.
There are a limited number of websites where you can go and get royalty free images. Or you can use specialised tools or logo creation software to make your own images. In today’s post I am going to be showing you some of the ones that I use most of them are free except for one of them. All of the tools are tools that I use regularly on my own websites, blogs and banners etc.
In fact if you found this post useful I would be very grateful if you could share it with your social media friends and followers. 🙂
1. Canva.Com – This is one I discovered recently in fact it is one of my recent favourites there are lots of free pictures to chose from and you can use it to make Custom sized banners, facebook pictures, Facebook Banners and most other things you can think of. It comes highly recommended by me in fact most of the images on this blog are from Canva.Com
