Confused by all the different image sizes you need for your social media presence? Wish there was a simple tool to create the images you want?

Problem solved! I’m going to keep this simple by highlighting the best sources for both.

Canva: The simplest tool for great social media graphics

Canva. Go to their site, scroll across the top (screen shot below), pick what you need, and start designing.  If you are looking for a custom dimension, they can support that, too.

That’s it. There are other guides and other tools, but from what I have seen and used, these are the two best. Use Social Sprout’s guide to understand the dimensions of what you want, and use Canva to make it look beautiful. Simple!

I wanted to keep this short and simple, but do share if you know of other tools that can be helpful. Good luck!
