Every message needs an image, preferably annotated, but here’s the rub: the image must be owned or licensed, and if you’re busy, you don’t want to waste time finding and annotating it!
Fortunately for us, you can find a licensed image and annotate it in no time at all, using:
- Snappa – of the services listed here, Snappa may be the most powerful and easy to use (the image in this post was created on Snappa). The Snappa editor is free for the first several images, and then a monthly fee is required ($15 per month or $10 if paid annually).
- Canva – Canva offers a free editor, but many of the images must be purchased for $1 (very reasonable)
- Pablo (by Buffer) – a free editor for use with images and text overlays (simpler than the above)
- Placeit – for device, apparel, and digital mockups
These platforms (except Placeit) boast large image libraries and templates, along with both free and premium-tier features.
I will elaborate when I find some time, but in the meantime, please check these out!
