How to Ad Text to Your Photos for Social Media Posts without spending a dime

So, you have all this GREAT stuff on your blog. You’ve been up late at night, just banging out article after article and you need to get more eyes on the goods! So what do you do? Share it on social media, right?

I bet you are thinking, “HOW did I not KNOW about this?!?!” It’s a pretty good source if you’d prefer not to pay for the monthly Adobe subscription for Photoshop. My only criticism is that the program can be a tiny bit slow. But hey- it’s FREE!
