Do you want to attract traffic to your site without breaking the bank on advertising? Then you know that it is important to have attractive Pinterest-worthy images within your posts. Which is why I’m going to explain how to create Pinterest Graphics with FotoJet. FotoJet is a new browser-based app for graphic design, photo collage and photo editing. Not all of us are superb photographers (I mean, I do okay… ) so we need a little help here and there in the pin-worthy department, right?
How to Create Pinterest Graphics on FotoJet
1. Visit PhotoJet
First head on over to FotoJet.com. FotoJet offers a free plan with basic editing tools and templates for designing. You don’t even have to register to use the free plan.
FotoJet also offers a Plus plan that is fee based. Their fees are nominal in comparison to other premium photo editing sites.
2. Select Design
On the lefthand side of the top toolbar, next to the FotoJet logo, select Design. A selection of options will appear, including posters, flyers, cards, social media headers, and social media posts.
3. Select Pinterest Graphic
Under Social Media Posts, select Pinterest Graphic.
4. Add Photos
Add the photos that you wish to use to FotoJet.
5. Select Template
If you prefer to use a template, go ahead and select one. The free version does have templates available, but the Plus version has more. 😉
6. Add and Edit Text
Whether working from scratch or using a template, you need to add and edit text to your image. Again, the Plus version has more options.
7. Save Image
After you’ve added your text, click “Save” to download your image.
Plus members can create custom size images to design their hero image for Pinterest on FotoJet, too.
FotoJet Plus members can also create and save a “project” to re-upload later. This comes in handy if you use a particular style/format for a series of Pinterest images. I used it to create the Pinterest images for my The Legend of Rock, Paper, Scissors post and my Raisin, the Littlest Cow post.
I’ve really enjoyed using FotoJet for the last two weeks. I thought you might like it, too, so I’ve agreed to host a giveaway for readers. FotoJet has agreed to give two (2) lucky readers a one (1) year FotoJet Plus membership!
