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

  1. turns any ordinary quotes texts into beautiful quotes picture for Facebook, Twitter header, Google Plus, E-Cards, Wallpapers, Pinterest, Posters and other print design.
  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?”
