One word for a super quick way to create awesome images and double your social engagement: Stencil. Stencil gives you access to 720,000+ background photos and 200,000+ icons and graphics that are all royalty-free and safe to use for personal and commercial reasons. But the even more amazing thing is that it’s web-based and very easy to use. No more spending lots of time fiddling with Photoshop and other software when you can create what you want in a few minutes for free.
As of today, Stencil has 3 pricing tiers, starting with a free one that lets you create up to 10 images/month with fewer backgrounds and icons and features.
Can you really do it in 3 minutes?
Yes and you can speed it up further by installing its Firefox and Chrome extension. You then can select any text, press the extension icon, and it’ll launch Stencil and let you start working. You can then save or share your image. Using Image Elevator will also speed up your workflow.
