They are in the trenches creating everything from images to infographics for their businesses, websites, blogs and social media channels.
They know what works and what doesn’t when it comes to visual content creation tools.
They know which “go-to” tools they use daily.
They know which tools they simply can’t live without. And they have shared them in this post!
When asking the Pros to contribute to this awesome list, I made it very clear that they should:
1 Pick the visual content tools they use daily (or most regularly) and not just the ones they think others won’t mention (ie repeats are ok in this post)
2 Not worry about listing a tool that may be already listed – because they think the tool is not easy to use, or not mainstream enough, or is already a crowd favourite.
3 Give a reason for choosing each tool – why they love it and use it regularly.
These are the top 3 responses from each expert, along with their reasons for choosing each tool. There are 36 different tools in total, not counting the popular duplicates!
