7 Easy-to-Use Design Tools

A few weeks ago I shared some of my favorite resources for finding the perfect picture without breaking the bank.

But what if that perfect picture needs to be resized, or have some text added to it, or modified in some way.  You don’t always need to ask your favorite graphic designer. Here are a few tools you can use instead.

Resize Your Images

If you are using images on social media sites, size matters if you want your image probably displayed.

sizzlepig not only helps you resize your photos but also tells you the best size for each network that you would like to post you photo on.

If you are just looking for a quick and easy tool to go in a crop a photo, visit this tool by the Internet Marketing Ninjas.

Make Infographics

Infographics have become a very popular way to display information because readers tend to process visual information quicker.

If you are looking for a template to get started with your own infographic, easel.ly has several to choose from.

If you would like a tool that will walk you through the process of infographic creation from start to completion, I would recommend piktochart.

Photo Collages

Another fun way to share a story through images is photo collages. Fotor provides you with easy to use tools to create your collages as well as more advanced features that allow you more creative control.

Photovisi allows you to use some fun themes such as Zombies or Autumn Angels to build your collages in.

Bonus

If you are looking for an easy to use design tool that does a little more than what was listed here, Canva provides solutions for a wide variety of design needs.
