Turning Quotes into Images (Updated)

Image above Created by Susie Highley (@shighley)

I recently read somewhere that if you add an image to a tweet, that increases the chance people will click on the link. With that piece of information in mind, I was surprised to see a retweet of my blog entry, Tearing Down False Gods, by Aaron Davis (@mrkndvs) that included just such an image:

Aaron has certainly raised the bar for retweeters, right? Consider some of his other creations that he houses at Flickr:

I asked him how he was making these, and he cited a few tools, tagging Bill Ferriter (@plugusin), who also contributed:

  1. QuotesCover.comQuotesCover.com turns any ordinary quotes texts into beautiful quotes picture for Facebook, Twitter header, Google Plus, E-Cards, Wallpapers, Pinterest, Posters and other print design.
  2. Quozio.com
  3. Canva – via Bill, Canva “provides users with access to a TON of engaging templates and images that can be easily dragged and dropped into impressive final products in minutes.”
  4. Wordswag – This is an Apple iOS app that allows you to add words to your pictures. Also recommended by Bill.
  5. Google Draw – I’ve used this a few times, or just build it in GoogleSlides.
  6. HaikuDeck – This iOS and Web-based app makes adding quotes to images, or vice versa, quite easy.
  7. A whole list of these kinds of tools

What do you use to “image your quotes?”

  1. I've used oneshot on iOS and the 'Tweet Shot' facility in instapaper. Bit worried about accessibility, bandwidth ect. replacing text with image (but not too much).
