You are now able to create and share images for social media networks with a text overlay in just 30 seconds.  It's time to generate social graphics! Great news for content marketing. It's time to start playing. Whoop whoop. 

Did you know that...

Now, with this in mind, Pablo by buffer gives you a great chance to start posting images with text overlays onto your social media, and in turn get ready to see an increase in your engagement rate, if your fans and followers are enjoying what you are posting of course. 

Pablo is easy tool to use and to add to that, it is also free and does not require you to have a Buffer account. All you need to do is log on to the website, and start creating. You have the option to post straight to facebook or twitter directly, or download the image onto your computer, and use it elsewhere.

As you can see, it is clear cut, simple and very easy to use. You have the choice of using the preset images provided by Pablo, or you can upload your own .jpg or .png photo of choice. You then type in the text you want to appear on the overlay, choose and the font, color, size and background and then tadaaaaaaaa, you are done and ready to publish. You also are lucky enough to have a preview on the right side of the screen for you to check and verify your image before you publish or download. 

Honestly speaking, coming from someone who spends a lot of time online creating content, this is one of the best tools that has been created, in my humble opinion. So a very big shout out and thank you to Pablo by Buffer. Gracias :-)
