Let me take this opportunity, on the first day of 2020 to wish you all a Happy New Year and hope all your wishes come true and achieve the resolutions you’ve made for the year. I personally am not making any resolutions this year, since I can’t seem to keep any of them after the first two weeks of the year. If you’ve had success in meeting your resolutions last year, leave a message on how you managed to achieve your goals in the comments section below.
Back to Work – Designing Graphics for Posts
I was on the lookout for an easy to use image designer for making a bunch of graphics for the holiday seasons for posting on Twitter and Instagram. I was introduced to this DesignCap, an online service, which claims to help speed up the creative process. They have quick templates to get you started off on creating Greeting Cards, Flyers, Presentations, Infographics and a bunch of Social Media templates catered to services like Facebook, Instagram, Youtube and Pinterest.
Online and Easy to use
Since this is fully online, all you need is your browser to get started with DesignCap. The web interface is quite easy to pick up and intuitive – just a few minutes of tinkering around got me comfortable with it. I got started on a ready-made template and ended up customizing it to get my graphics created.
They have a whole searchable library of over 1 million stock images and illustrations which you can use to design your layout, and 100s of fonts to add punch to your messages. With just a few minutes of work, I was able to churn out great looking images to post out on my various accounts.
Free To Use – Pay for Extras
DesignCap follows a freemium model, where you have access to some of the templates for free and allows exporting your creatives in small size for free. The free version should be sufficient for most of your personal use. The premium options include the ability to download larger versions of your creations, and unlocking a slew of additional templates to speed up your work.
If you are looking at this solution for your business, the extra templates and option to download larger image sizes $4.99 per month for the basic plan and $5.99 for the Plus plans. So try out DesignCap’s design tool, create your next great post and let me know your thoughts.
