Quote Alvin Toffler think about big small thingsNoticed how popular those quotes added to some form of background or picture have become? You’ve GOT to have pictures for Pinterest (no duh, eh? Smile). Facebook posts with pictures perform better than ones without them and including a picture in your blog posts is a great way to build traffic and interest too.

Some call them picture graphics.

Some call them image quotes.

Regardless, they’re all the same thing!

    I totally agree that creating quote images is hard when you’re not a graphic designer! That’s why I use Stencil (getstencil.com). I search for a quote by topic, pop in a background photo (over 1 million to choose from!) and I’m done! There are so many fonts and icons to choose from too. You should totally give it a shot :)

      Hi Serene, you’re so right and Stencil is one of many tools I use and love. Glad you found something that works…that’s the most important part, isn’t it? So many tools, so little time (lol). Blessings. MamaRed
