How to make your own graphics on social media

Well-designed social media graphics can often be the difference between a post that gets lots of views and one that gets ignored. If you’re concerned about creating social graphics since you have little-to-no experience in design, you’ve come to the right place. With Lucidpress, you can create your own graphics in only a few minutes, and they’ll look like they were done by a team of professional designers. Here are a few tips you can follow to make sure your social media images are of the highest quality.

Go with bright and bold

The social media world is crowded. You want to make sure your content stands out. One of the best ways to do this is with bright, bold colors. Think about some of the social media posts you’ve enjoyed recently. Chances are, they used a bold color scheme that grabbed your attention.

Select the right template

Lucidpress gives you a variety of templates you can choose from to begin creating your social media graphics. Make sure you select a template that best matches the type of social media post you want to create. For example, if you’re creating a new Instagram post, the Lucidpress Instagram post template will help you start off on the right foot with the right dimensions.

Use text in your graphics

Social media users love to share content built around fascinating information or interesting quotes. Including text within your social media graphics makes that information easier to notice. Make sure the text is easy to read on any device.

Make it personal

While it might be easy to use stock images as part of your social media graphics, sometimes the better approach is to use some of your own photos. This gives them a more personal touch and avoids the generic feeling so many graphics have. With your own images, you’ll be able to make a stronger connection with other social media users. If you do want to use stock photography, take care to personalize your post in other ways that show off your brand’s personality (like colors and fonts).
