Instagram and Pinterest are among the most popular choices for bloggers to find potential customers or business partners. In case you are wondering why, Instagram and Pinterest are two of the best places to show off your creativity with gorgeous images. Remember, a picture is worth a thousand words!
You need to have an abundance of quality, attractive images to really be successful on these two platforms. But as a small business owner or blogger, you may be on quite the lean budget.

I share some free and inexpensive apps, tools and resources that will be of help. And most of them are very easy to learn and use, so you’ll be creating impressive images in no time!

In addition to apps, tools and resources, I also include some overall tips and guidelines when creating images for Instagram and Pinterest. If you follow the guidelines and tips, you will be sure to have great images that will attract the attention you desire.
