I'm having a lot of fun with making graphics for social media and my blogs. Studies show readers will stay longer on a site if there is an image connected to the article. Facebook and Google+ are heavy on images. Video is even more attractive, but that's for a later post!
Here are some samples of the graphics I have made using the following sites.
|Quote by John F. Kennedy|
|Spring quote by Robin Williams|
|Image made with Quozio.|

I design my book covers with an old favorite software program I have used for years, The Print Shop 22. I tried to learn Photoshop, but it was so much more complicated, so I went back to Print Shop. I figured out a lot of eBook covers for Romance and Mystery Authors on Writing. Then I pulled up picmonkey and copied the jpeg design saved in my book cover file to the shape for the Kindle cover--1600 x 2400 pixels. Soooooooo easy and it's the preferred size cover for Kindle Direct Publishing. Picmonkey has a lot to offer for designers so I am digging around in it too.
I bet many of you have experience with some of these sites. What do you think about them? Can you suggest other sites you use for designing your graphics?
