You've heard it before and you'll hear it again: social media is getting more visual every single day. Social networks like Facebook, Twitter, LinkedIn and Pinterest have increasingly adopted more visually oriented layouts and promote more visually appealing content when possible.
... And that's because visual content works. For example, in just one month after the introduction of Facebook timeline for brands, visual content -- photos and videos -- saw a 65% increase in engagement.
Don't believe me? I'll walk you through making a social media image -- using one of our free stock photos -- in the rest of this post. It shouldn't take you more than five minutes from start to finish. Promise.
