Right size images easy made by YOU

We all know how important they are in. A good catchy image tells thousand words and your going-to-be-customer just stopped and clicked through.
If you don’t want to break any rules you use only images with Creative Common Licence. Make sure that you are able to use or amend them as you wish even for commercial purposes.
Right, after we found images which suits to our topic / blog post / facebook post / advertisement we are happy. Until we realise that the image is too big or small to us.
Use pages like: https://unsplash.com/ or http://pixabay.com/en/ for free
If you are ready to pay for more unique images you can check: 123rf , ShutterStock or PhotoXpress
Right, back to the Sizes:
Facebook Fan Page Photo Size Dimensions 2014
The essential Facebook sizes:
Facebook cover photo size: 851 x 315 pixels

Facebook wall post photo size: 504 px wide by upto 504 px high
Facebook shared link thumbnail size: 484 x 252 pixels

Facebook app image: 810 px wide by up to 1200 px high
You can use a couple of programs like:
Windows the built in tool, really basic but it does the job if it’s only about re-sizing and adding basic text.
Free to download http://www.irfanview.com/ – this has loads of effects as well which I really like and to resize the pic you just go to Image – Resize / Resample and adjust the sizes as you wish.
If you are not ready to download something new you can use a pretty clever little webpage for free. It’s almost like photo shop just more user friendly.
The page called pixlr.com and from the 3 options I found the Express version better:
Open your image and under Adjustment you can find Resize or Crop to change the size. You can blur out text if you want to keep the 20% rule and loads of more to play with.
Loads of more like: Stickers, Text with different fonts, borders… Everything.
