Always up-to-date social media image size guide
This handy little document was put together by Sprout Social, and is continually updated with correct image sizes for all different social media platforms.
It’s super important to maintain consistency within your posts by posting images of the preferred size (by whichever social platform you’re using), so that they appear attractively in the news feed. We keep ours bookmarked on Google Chrome.
The best free stock images website of ALL stock images websites
Pexels.com is a library of all free stock photo websites on the web, they compile photos from sites like Unsplash, Gratisography, Little Visuals and tonnes more. Every image is high quality and totally free to use and download, you don’t even need to create a log in!
Pexels is perfect for finding great imagery for your client mock-up sites, where they don’t have original imagery themselves or you can’t find what you’re looking for in the Smart Little CMS stock image library.
Photoshop - for free!
In recent years Adobe have made Photoshop increasingly inaccessible to non design professionals or those of us on a lower budget. You might have noticed your only option to get the latest versions nowadays is to pay a monthly subscription fee, or pay hundreds (ouch) to obtain the full version on a disc. For those of us who just need to edit our images but don’t want to pay, there is Pixlr.
Pixlr is your online Photoshop, for free! Technically a ‘web app’ (snazzy), Pixlr gives you much of the same great features as Adobe’s version, for absolutely zero cost. It even looks and feels almost identical!
