14 Tools to Create Engaging Infographics and Images for Social Media Posts

It’s no secret that images are increasingly important for social media success.  It wasn’t long ago that Twitter added inline image previews to its official apps, and it’s including even more image focus in the latest redesign.  At Buffer, we’ve done tests on our own Twitter account previously that showed images make a huge difference to engagement:
In a recent research study we conducted, we found that images can increase retweet rate by up to 150%:

PicMonkey   PicMonkey is a really easy-to-use photo editing tool that runs in your browser. You can quickly and easily edit a single image, create a collage or put together a design–say, for a background or your Facebook cover image.

Social Image Resizer Tool  The Social Image Resizer Tool is an absolute must-have if you need to quickly resize images for your social media profiles often.

Timeline Slicer  Timeline Slicer is a brilliant tool for designing images for your Facebook Page or Profile.

Photovisi  Photovisi is another photo collage tool that’s really simple and easy to use.

BeFunky  Most of the tools on this list do one thing well, and make it easy. BeFunky is closer to a full photo editor that lives in your browser.

Find and make Infographics  Infographics are especially popular on Pinterest or in blog posts. We’ve even shared some social media infographics here on the Buffer blog.

A few tools have popped up to make creating infographics easier. Here are just a few you could try:
