They are essential to Pinterest, and with Facebook’s recent changes you likely should stop sharing your own links and instead upload an image and then post the link in the body of the update (you get more screen space this way and more engagement). In either case, images matter.
But most of us have limited time. It can be hard enough to finish a blog post, and then you have to find or perhaps create a compelling image to go with it.
Recite This is a tool that takes any text you can come up with and turns it into a great looking image. I have included some of the different image styles in this post.
I have tried other services that are similar. I even paid for Share As Image Pro. But the templates that Recite This is using are some of the best I have seen, and they even let you download a fairly large version of what you create.
Right now the service is entirely free, and you don’t even have to create an account. I think Recite This will quickly get popular, and you will start to see these style of images more frequently. So some of the newness may wear off, but for now you should consider trying out the service and making some quick, shareable images to go with your blog posts or to even just share.
Thanks to Kelly Lieberman for mentioning this cool service.
