    Is there a specific plugin you use to put text on a photo for the social media description and pinterest description?

    How did you create a template for your images? What program do you use? Thanks, Ruth!

    This was really helpful. I had a post go out on Facebook last week, that for some reason didn’t include the picture. It was surprising to see the drop in the number of people that read it! Pictures are very important.

      We use Adobe Illustrator but Canva.com is another great and free option and you can save the template.

    I’m with Kristin – what program(s) do you suggest we use to add text to images?

    I have been trying to stay consistent with images on my blog but I’ve picked up a few brilliant ideas from your post that I am going to use to ‘rock my blog post graphics’. Thank you!

    Great tips, thanks! I’m working on a template for my images, I do see how that makes it easier. I have to remember that what I might get tired of looking at will be familiar in a positive way to readers.

    Great blog post telling the importance of images. In my view the best graphics representation of images is present on canvas where anyone can create number of eye catching images and customize it with own creativity.
    Thank you

    Thanks for sharing. I’m right in the learning process of creating images. Some of my images look blurred on Pinterest while being perfectly fine on the blog. Ouch… Don’t know how to fix this but I understand I need to work on that.

    Thanks again

      It sounds like your images might be too small if they are blurry. 745 x 1102 is generally the best size for a pin. It will look big on your post!

    Thanks so much for writing this Ruth! I have been struggling with images for a while. Your tips help a bunch. I’m definitely going to put more thought into a “brand” consistency with them.

    Great article. Photos are so often over looked. They help break up the text so readers don’t get overwhelmed by a page full of text!

    These suggestions are things I think I know intuitively, but it’s so good to hear them in a clear, consise manner. Thanks for the super needed information. I was wondering if it’s O.K. to change the background color and text a bit and it seems likes that’s an O.K. adjustment to make.

    Thank you! I’m completely self-taught when it comes to graphics and have fallen in love with PicMonkey and how user friendly it is. I’m struggling to define a template and a brand because I love so many styles! Working on it 🙂 Thanks for the great tips Ruth!

    This was so helpful! I’ve thought about using images in my blog posts, but have had trouble with what to integrate with them. So good to think about having images that are consistent to bring people to the post! I’m just starting and trying to learn as much as I can.
