Find 8 apps to create stunning social media images.

#1: Find Images Without Copyright

If you’re looking for photos to use in your images, I have two resources for you: Unsplash and New Old Stock.

Unsplash is a free photo archive that prides itself on offering “do-whatever-you-want, hi-res images.” According to their licensing information, the images on the site are not copyrighted, which means you have free rein over how you use them.

Use copyright-free images as a backdrop for your primary message.

Unsplash’s subscription service gives you 10 new images delivered straight to your inbox every 10 days.

It’s not always easy to find what you’re looking for on Unsplash. You can view images by month of submission, but there is no way to browse by topic or any other category.

New Old Stock provides “vintage photos from the public archives” and promises that no known copyright restrictions exist on them.

You can find photos from times past at New Old Stock.

Like Unsplash, you can’t browse images by theme, topic or any other categories. Nonetheless, New Old Stock features some incredible vintage photography. If that’s what you’re looking for, this is the place.

#2: Attract Attention With Animated Video

Video has taken content marketing by storm—audiences love it. If you’ve shied away from video because it’s too time-consuming or expensive, you should probably take a look at PowToon.

PowToon is a super-simple app that helps you create animated videos that will truly engage your audience.

Use PowToon to create videos and presentations with a big “Wow!” factor.

PowToon features many templates and a well-stocked library of shapes, objects and effects you can use in your animation.

If you’ve ever thought about creating product overviews, presentations or even instructional videos, you can use PowToon for those and more. Whatever your message, an attractive video can probably enhance it.
