Image Excellence

Compelling, high-quality images make all the difference in whether viewers pay attention to your posts. And the better your images are and the easier they are to share, the more likely it is that someone will retweet, post, or share your content.

  3. You can take better pictures by following some simple tips.
  4. Tools are available that can improve your images after the fact.

  1. My favorite source of free, no-strings-attached high res photos that are very often excellent quality: morguefile.com. I would be lost without it!
