How to Create Engaging Images for Social Media in less than 5 Minutes

How to Create Engaging Images for Social Media in less than 5 Minutes

Let’s face it: on social media, visual contents are worth a thousand words. Numerous studies have established that images drive conversations and engagement in ways that text simply cannot. We learn that 90% of information transmitted to the brain is visual, and visuals are processed 60,000x faster in the brain than text. A BrightLocal survey found that 60% of consumers are more likely to consider or contact businesses with images in local search results.
Composing quality images can take time and requires advance skills in editing software such as Photoshop™. That very fact has frustrated many of us.

It is to address that issue that we created Pikiz, a simple yet powerful tool for neophytes to add text to images or to transform text into engaging images.

To start creating beautiful and high quality images with Pikiz, you must add an extension (currently supporting Chrome and Firefox) or a bookmarlet to your browser. Download Pikiz for Chrome here or follow this link if you are Firefox user. Once installed, the Pikiz button will appear on every image you see on the web.

Edit image online

We know how important it is to make the process seamless. You don’t have to download images first, and then open your editing software before captioning the perfect image! You can edit images right where you find them on the internet. Seize the moment and don’t lose a beat, let alone your inspiration. Just click on Caption this and start composing the next viral picture the world would want to share.
