This is one of my favorite social media tools, which I think is still in beta testing. Here you can up load your own photo or choose one of their photos.

They offer a large library. What I love is the photo is sized to the correct dimension for the social platform you are using and this includes Pinterest so you don’t have to worry about the correct size.

The other great feature is you can lay text over the photo. This is great for your feature photo for your blog posts or creating good looking quotes to post to social media. Believe me, you will love this program.
