Have you ever seen those gorgeous quotes, infographics or ‘right on brand’ edited photos from other small businesses in your feed and wondered ‘how do they do it’?
The secret is not always in a big marketing budget, but in a few apps, a little time and a splash of creativity. You don’t have to have the skills of a graphic designer to create images and graphics to share from your brand, and these are our favourite apps to make magic design happen.
Once a desktop only tool, Canva took the amateur graphic design world by storm. It has changed so much since it launched and we are big fans here at Social Tap. It features a paid and free version with drag and drop editing and thousands of templates.
The desktop version boasts the most features, but the iOS and Android apps have plenty to get you creating and posting straight from your phone.
This app makes creating infographics a breeze. Create Pinterest level infographics, maps and more with thousands of templates and simple data input. There are free and paid versions.
Picmonkey is the original photo editing app and has been recently rebuilt with templates and improved tools to unleash your creativity. Edit photos, create graphics and access templates (paid version only), with limited capability in the free version.
Create a quote people will want to share with text and graphic templates; you can create stunning, quirky and inspiring graphics to for your social channels. Available on iOS and Android
We have covered this app before, and there is a reason – it allows you to edit your own images and create graphics so effortlessly. The app boasts backgrounds, filters, textures and design elements and is available on iOS and Android.
