Free Online Image Tools - great for marketing!

There are plenty of great, free apps and sites for image editing and creation - perfect for small business, solopreneur and nonprofit marketing. These are ones I like best!


Easily create your own quote posters and much more




Maybe my absolute new fave for creating social media images - templates for Facebook covers, Twitter, posts and more.

Design shouldn't be hard but somewhere along the way we became bogged down with expensive, complicated software that put design out of reach for most people. Canva is here to change that, with a tool that makes design simple for everyone.

Use existing quotes, sample fonts and backgrounds. OR even better - type in your gathered quotes and attributions and add your own pictures. Simple tools for editing images, adding filters and scrolling through the hundreds of available fonts. You do have to scroll and never know which is coming next - no search function. But still a quick tool to make quote pics for use in social media marketing.

Inkscape. Draw Freely.

Inkscape is a FREE, downloadable Vector Graphics Editor, similar to Adobe Illustrator, that strives to be SVG Compliant, open source, responsive and extensible.


Everyone's fave free, online, photo editor. So it's here too!

Add filters, frames, text, and effects with our free online photo editing tool!


Icon search engine and market place. Find free and cheap icons, vector images, logo and design components. Good search features.

Quozio - Make Beautiful Quotes

Quozio turns meaningful words into beautiful images in seconds. Then share 'em on Facebook, Pinterest, email and more!

A very simple tool - but with limited backgrounds, font styles and looks. Easy - but your images won't stand out from the pack as much as with other apps.

Image Color Picker

A hexcode + RGB color tool. Upload an image or point to its URL and hover the cursor to find the right codes to use elsewhere. But beware - different versions of same image can generate different codes.

Simple Icons

PNG icons in eleven sizes, black and white, from 16px to 4096px.

Every social networking site out there - if you need an icon to use elsewhere, this is where to grab it.

PicMark - Watermark Your Images Before Sharing

PicMark makes it super easy to put watermarks on images before sharing on Facebook, Pinterest or Twitter. Brand your images and protect them from being stolen.
