17 Online Photo Editors to Create Beautiful Visual Quotes


Some days we all need a little motivation or pick me up and everybody loves a good quote! Just do a Google Search for ‘quotes’ and you will pull up over 570 million searches.  In an increasingly visual society, it is an art form to produce quality visual quotes.  Just visit Pinterest and your search will bring up hundreds if not thousands of quotes in almost any subject you can think of.Timeline_Cover_doNotRename75-300x110

We decided to have some fun with the members of our Facebook and Google Plus communities.  Every Monday we do a post to celebrate #MotivationalMonday and we asked our fans to post their favourite quotes.  The response was excellent!  We then asked our fans to vote for their top quote.

The top five winners are featured below.

Rather than just post the words, I thought that I would also feature some of the best apps and online photo editing sites to create visually stunning image quotes.  Not everyone is proficient in Photoshop but the photo editors below can assist you to create quality images with ease and speed.

Posted below are the winning quotes  ranking from number one to five.

Maria Hill – First Place Winner


This was created on “Quotes With Quozio”.  You simply add the bookmarklet  to your browser and anytime you come across a quote that you want to jazz up, you simply highlight the quote, open the bookmarklet and the site offers dozens of backgrounds and fonts to choose from.  You simply save to your hard drive and voila …a beautiful visual to use on your blog or pin directly to your Pinterest Board and of course..it is free :-)

 Barbara Farina – Second Place


For those that like the bold white text on a plain background “Quotes Cover” delivers in spades.  It is free and it is simple and quick and you can create your graphic to conform to size requirements for Facebook, Pinterest and Google+.

Ming Jong Tey – Third Place


Pic Monkey is by far one of my go-to sites.  It is so versatile and offers so many options…..backgrounds, large selection of fonts, add filters, frames, and effects and it is free.  I personally have the paid version as it adds many more features but for simply creating visual quotes the free version will be all that you will need.

We had a two way tie for fourth place

Lori Moreno – Fourth Place


Online Image Editor has a great toolbar for super easy editing .  This took literally a couple of minutes to complete.

Stephanie Jacobs – Tied for Fourth Place


Pinstamatic is a super site for anyone who loves to post to Pinterest.  Quotes and Text – Choose a style by clicking on one of the icons, then add some text. If you are preparing a quote, supply the author too. Website Snapshot - Enter the URL of a website in the box provided and Pinstamatic will take a snapshot of the website.  Spotify Track – Create a pin of a favorite song and its album artwork.  Twitter Profiles -Add a pin of your Twitter profile or that of one of your friends.  There are several other great features that you should check out.

Jason Wagner – Fifth Place


Chisel offers hundreds of images to choose from directly on their site and you simply add your text…so quick, easy and free.  You do have to create an account with them, but is takes a couple of minutes.

There are lots of great resources for creating beautiful visual quotes.  Check out our List.ly below for 17 of our favorites.

Hi Kimberly. Great article! I’m creating beautiful quotes by using Inspirable.com to publish on social media channels. I love their simple process of creating quotes simply by adding images and editing (style and size of text.) Then, I've used these quote images to covert into my cover photos, profile images or wallpapers.
