Great images can make or break a Facebook shop.
If you’re not using compelling visuals in your Facebook shop and on your Facebook wall then you’re losing engagement (and probably losing sales)! Facebook users are scrolling through hundreds of images a day. You have to quickly catch their eye and encourage them to interact with your content.
Luckily, you don’t have to be a designer to create great images, and you don’t have to hire a designer either. There are tons of great tools out there designed to help you create awesome graphics for your Facebook shop. Here at ShopTab, we’ve compiled some of our favorite free design resources. You can use them to quickly create and edit product images and also design promotional images to post with Facebook shop links on your wall.
This is one of our favorite free design tools – it’s what we used for this blog image! You can upload your own images or use Canva’s database of images to quickly create graphics. The best thing about Canva is that the images are already sized perfectly for social media. You can click “Facebook post” and not have to worry about cropping the image later.
Pixlr is a powerful cloud based photo-editor designed for non-professionals. Like Photoshop, it has an advanced set of features designed to give you a lot of image customization. It takes a bit of time to learn if you’ve never used any photo-editing software, but it’s a great way to edit Facebook shop product photos.
If you’re cross-promoting your Facebook store images on Instagram, or looking to easily add text on top of a picture you took with your phone, this is the app for you. It’s only for mobile phones, but it’s a great on-the-go solution for great looking social media updates and promotions.
PicMonkey is for fast, easy photo editing and touchups. It allows you to upload a photo from Facebook or your computer, and the interface is easy to learn and use. It also allows you to create collages of several photos for a unique visual presentation.
If you’re looking for a massive collection of free, simple icons, Flaticon is the place to be. Search for any time of icon or symbol and then download it from Flaticon’s database. Images are free to use and the size of the database makes it easy to find something that suites your needs.
