Getting Started Creating Killer Graphics
At the end of March, we shared the 2 Minute Tip for Bloggers: Creating Visual Content. Today we’re keeping with the same theme on creating visual content. You’ve seen them – the photos with thought-provoking words across them in beautiful fonts. If you’ve been wowed and impressed by these, then you’ll love creating some of your own. You can include some of your favorite quotable content (think motivational and inspirational), promote your products or services, or do what we often do, use photos to drive home your message. Think of all the ways you’d like to use graphics with text!
