I created a set of Photoshop templates that you can use to create graphics for your blog and social media postings.
Over at Zen Web Themes, I created a section of free goodies. These are downloadable digital assets that you can use for your website.
I created two goodies to get started, one of which is a set of Photoshop templates that you can use to create consistent images for your blog posts and social media posts. See it here: Blog & Social Media Image Templates
As you might have noticed, it’s helpful to create your featured images at the same exact size for every blog post. That way they all look nice and even when they show up on your homepage or in the various category pages around the website. It’s also great to be able to offer the same consistent visual style on your social media profiles.
So I made a set of Photoshop templates that you can use for your blog, Facebook, Twitter, and Instagram specifically, but you can also use them elsewhere.
These are cool because each one has the same style of layers, and all you have to do is turn on or off each layer to get different effects.
Here are some examples:
Here’s how it looks in Photoshop, with the background overlay options showing:
You can use any background image, of course, and you can change the color of any of the shapes to suit your own needs. Everything is made up of very standard Photoshop shapes and layers, so there’s nothing special that you have to do.
This is a free download at Blog & Social Media Image Templates. You can even submit your own digital assets and get a link to your website as payment 🙂 I hope that this will grow to be a great source of freebies for people to use.
