However, taking a beautiful photo is only the first step in your marketing journey. To truly wow your audience (and potential customer), you’ll need to know how to turn that image into something special.
That’s where digital marketing tools come in handy. Read on as we introduce four must-have tools for editing your marketing photos.
Canva came on the scene back in 2012 as a free, fun tool for image editing and graphics creation.
Since then, it’s become a go-to tool for digital marketers and social media specialists and now offers a premium package in addition to the original free version.
Canva features include:
- Remove background feature
- The ability to combine multiple images into one

Marketers who like a low-tech solution favor Canva as it’s easy to use. The premium package will offer heavy users the more advanced features available.
Picmonkey is another tool launched in 2012 as a low-tech DIY alternative to professional graphics services in digital marketing. It offered a step away from complex advanced tools such as photoshop.
As with Canva, pic monkey offers plenty of ways to create or edit graphics or photos. It included the following features:

It has all the features you’d expect from a graphics program, including:
