Creating an Instagram Post using Stencil – Video

Among my social media profiles, Instagram is my favorite.

Why? Well, I like looking at beautiful photos and read through thought-provoking, motivational and inspirational quotes.

You can tell that I enjoy visuals.

Though I’m trying to get my Photoshop skills to the next level, I don’t have the time to learn this awesome software. I already penciled this knowledge upgrade and I’ll get into it as soon as my schedule permit.

This brings me to search for tools that can help me with Instagram.

I need a tool that has virtually no learning curve, able to produce top notch graphics that would look like a pro did it, and something that will assist me in my Instagram journey.

I have tested a lot, I especially like Canva and Stencil. Both have Free Accounts that will enable you to create graphics. What made me choose Stencil over Canva? Read on.

Reasons why I love Stencil

  • Dashboard is simple and intuitive. Just looking at it, I can already see what the options are for.
  • The graphics are royalty-free. No need to shell out dollars to use one.
  • Easy image creation via Chrome Extension or Firefox Add-on. (I’ll create a video post to show this handy feature).
  • Integrates with Buffer to schedule my social media posts.
  • In-app capability to share my images to social media. Tested working for Facebook, Twitter, Pinterest, and Instagram (via SMS).
  • Ability to share my image via link. If you want somebody to check your image (a friend or boss), this is perfect.

With that, I have created a quick video.
