FREE Social Media - SQUARE Quote POST Cards
Share these Illustrated Images on your Social Media Channels to engage your followers.
INSTRUCTIONS: Share via the share buttons OR download & credit the art appropriately.
While I am allowing you to use these images, PLEASE remember to value ALL who create art! Without artists working hard and sharing gifts that they work to perfect for lifetimes, the world would be a drab place and a lot of important conversations could go unnoticed.
Credit artists on artwork that you did not purchase from them or have permission to use. It is not only legally required, but respectful and we all should strive to be respectful humans when we know better!

EXTRA | for those curious about these images:
These images were created using my own digital clip art from my shops that I sell for personal or commercial use. + some incredible Fonts!
***These FLAT JPG background images are not print resolution, only web, so don't print them and expect them to be good quality that is not what they are intended to be used for.
NOTE: If you would like the high-resolution versions of any of MY clip art used to create a particular image, send me an email and I will be happy to send you in the right direction of which set, so you can assemble your own unique images for PRINT, printable products, social media or blog images.

HOW TO USE PRE-DESIGNED BACKGROUNDS IN ADOBE SPARK
Adobe Spark is a subscription-based digital storytelling app on android, apple & browser.
This software offers templates, premium fonts and images that you can use to create flyers, posters, social media images and a variety of other visual content.
To access Adobe Spark, you will need a subscription, which in my opinion, for all that it does, is worth it, for the time savings alone! I personally use it and recommend -this is not an affiliate review, just a suggestion for those of you who want to keep it quick and easy while making some lovely images for your social media or blog 😉
You don't have to spend a ton of time to make something that can catch someone's eye and draw them in when you are using this software.
The Free version of Adobe Spark is very limited when it comes to changing colours and inserts a watermark on your final saved image, BUT, it is still a great option for you to check it out before entering your credit card information for the trial.
The trial version offers full functionality but, you will need to provide your credit card info and then cancel at the end of the trial if you do not want to continue or be billed.
And HEY….. for those of you who already have the Creative Cloud Software Subscription, including students, you will also already have access to Adobe Spark and you may not have even known it!
HOW TO CUSTOMIZE BACKGROUND TEMPLATE IMAGES
This is going to be an example of how I customized the above FLAT Background Template Images with text! For this example, I am using the desktop browser-based, subscription version of Adobe Spark.
DOWNLOAD THE IMAGES
To Download the FREE Social Media Templates above, click on the image, through to the new window, make sure you are signed into your google account and click the down arrow in the right hand corner. This will allow you to save the image in your downloads folder or depending on your settings, allow you to choose the folder you save in.
UPLOAD THE JPG IMAGE TO CUSTOMIZE
Upload your image by choosing upload photo.
Next, you will see a pop-up -as shown in the image above
I suggest choosing the option to pin to the background since my background cards here are for layering on top of and don't really offer versatility in how they can be layered.
EDIT TEXT + COLOUR & STYLE MODIFICATION
This is the FUN part! Editing the text and choosing the right style to suit your purpose.
Adobe spark makes it really simple to curve your text or have fonts that are paired nicely together so you don't have to think too hard.
- Choose a shape to start, then you can double click it on the image to edit it to say what you want.
- Now that you have the shape of the font, now you can move into selecting which font choice works best.
- Choose an elegant script or a bold, eye-catching font that gets attention. It is nice to have the options.
Here you can also fix the text to the shape that you want, having the text be a cut-out as shown below. You can even add multiple levels of different text.
Hey, If you don't like it, start from the beginning and start the edit over again to get it perfectly how you need it to be!
DOWNLOAD YOUR FINISHED IMAGE!
Here you can do the optional step of adding in your logo PNG OR even an additional PNG art image or icon.
And that's it, now you are ready to click download
One of the nicest things about Adobe Spark is that all of your templates will be saved in the cloud and accessible on the desktop or app versions of the application.
That means, you can go back any time and use the same messaging, but a different background style or use the same background with different text.
There you have it! A simple, decorative social media image that not only gets your message noticed but entices your followers to click and maybe even share!
PLEASE let me know if this helped you or if you had any trouble with it. Sometimes software changes and sometimes, in my own experience, i can easily skip over steps that may not be as obvious to someone who is simply just starting out.
I am always willing to modify my writing, tutorials to be better! <3
