Here's the thing.  There are loads of great apps and websites that help you to create visual content, right?

I'm talking WordSwag, Studio, Canva… and more.

And you might go looking on their blogs or their websites for inspiration for using the apps and tools. Which would be a good place to start.

But there's one place I go to regularly for ideas. And it's not their websites.

It's instagram.

You see, these apps are ideal for creating content on Instagram, so it makes sense that they showcase some of their best designs on Instagram.

And they don't just stop there. They also showcase images by their community… by you!

So if you ever get stuck for image creation ideas… head over to their Instagram accounts to get your creative juices pumping.

Let's take a look…(and trust me you will WANT to look at #4. It's my new favourite).

Where to Find Bucketloads of Image Creation Ideas

#1  Canva

Let's start with one of my favourite visual content creation tools… Canva.

Canva has continued to grow an awesome Instagram account, peppered with blog posts, visual content and design tips and best of all… creations using their own tool!

Here's a few great images from Canva's Instagram site.

They are certain to fill your mind with ideas for how to use Canva to create awesome images:

Canva loves keeping things simple..and they create a lot of images that help you to visualize a tip, like this one… always check their description where you will find more content and ideas!

Or what about this one… Canva shows how to use tint by using an image as an example:

Sometimes they simply give you a different idea for creating images… I've found ideas many times by scrolling through the Canva image feed…

#2  Made with Studio

I love love love Made with Studio. I talked about the Studio App here and it's one of my favourite apps right now. I think it is because they have included the “social” aspect of visual content creation so well.

Not only is Studio a visual content creation tool but it is a social network in it's own right, where you can design images to share but also for others to create and share using your designs.

Studio has quickly built up a huge following on Instagram, because they share designs shared by their audience… many of which you can use in your own designs using Studio's “remix” function.


Studio users get clever with words as well as images…

Here's a set of remixed designs from one of the popular designs in Studio… add your own image and Boom. Remix!


Perhaps you want to show what's on your bucket list… bring out your favourite travel pic and remix!

Or is there a message you want to convey? Create your own or remix someone elses!


And with new icon sets being released all the time, as well as the ability to create your own designs from scratch, the possibilities are endless…

Over has long promoted their fan's content on their Instagram account. What I love is how they show how creative we can be with a mix of words and images…

Let's just silently enjoy how creative the Over users are… words + pictures + art:

So when you are feeling like you need a little image creation inspiration…head over to Over!

PS did I tell you that you can now upload your own png images and files (think: logos!) into Over.. so much potential for some really cool images!

This might well be my new favourite app.

I have been playing with it for a few days and loving it.  It's your words (and pictures) turned into animated video. Love. You know that thing, where 15 second video catches attention and Facebook video gets high reach at the moment?

Well, this app, my friend, could be your answer to easy short video creation. Let's take a look at some of the creations featured on Instagram for your inspiration.

Who doesn't love a little Caturday, right? And what about this one…

But, if you are like me (and a little scared of heights), you might want to step back from this one!

Anyway… I think you get the picture!

    I usually go straight to Studio. Canva is on the computer and Studio is on my phone, so makes it easier, plus I can get Studio to post direct to Instagram and Twitter. It seems to be faster too, but just could be me. More practice with Canva might be a good idea. I’ve now clicked follow on the others in Instagram so thanks for all of those 🙂 Its always great to have inspiration everywhere we go!

    • Donna Moritz

      No worries – glad you liked the instagram accounts – they are full of inspiration!
