Have a quote? Be sure to check out the Wordswag app. On this app, you can choose a background from either your camera roll or the selection was given. There are many font styles to select from ensuring that you pick something matching the appropriate style and message. Make sure to have it personalized with a custom signature.
2. Split Pic
Trying to make a collage? Then split pic is for you! This app allows you to choose from a variety of layouts making sure you capture multiple moments in one picture.
Most know their way around Instagram, but few tap into the true potential of the app. To give more authenticity try layers of filters on your pics. Also, using the tools given are a great way to refine your picture such as the structure and sharpen tool. You can even splash colors in the picture to make it really pop!
4. Be funky
This is a less known app, but very useful. Be funky is full of different effects, and textures that can completely change any picture uploaded. This relies on your creative talent more than the other apps because it has so many options and combinations to choose from. Practice makes perfect! Hint: That's what was used on my cover photo with this blog.

Are you making a blog, Facebook post, or an email header? Look no further than Canva. Canva allows you to choose from different sizes of layouts so you know that the creation is a perfect fit for where it's being posted.
6. Adobe Kuler
The type of color your text is might not seem like something that is that important, but being in the marketing industry I can tell you it is paramount. Perception of your content is huge, and certain color schemes give different messages. I love this site because it gives you a color template based on an adjective describing the mood you want to portray.
7. 1001 Fonts
Another thing to you must realize is the importance of typography. Even the late Steve Jobs gives most credit to the aesthetics of Apple were inspired by a calligraphy class. With this site, you can search based on the brand image you want as well. Much like Kuler.
When bootstrapping you need savvy with producing content. I like this site because it can give you high-quality photos without you spending money on a photographer, or on a site like Shutterstock.
This concludes my teaching session. Happy Hacking.
