Our recommended tools for creating images to pin and for displaying your pins.
Share As Image: Easily turns a quote into an image, providing a variety of fonts, colors, sizes, etc. Free & paid versions. At $2.99, the paid version is worth it.
PicMonkey: Free, simple tool for editing images. Includes backgrounds, text, thought bubbles, and much more!
Gimp: Free image editing tool, more robust but also more complex than PicMonkey, intended as a Photoshop substitute. PicMonkey is better for special effects very suited to Pinterest. Gimp tutorials are at gimp.org/tutorials/.
PicSlice: Easy, free tool for slicing, cropping, and resizing pictures. Great tool if you want to create a board made up of slices of a single picture.
