Create custom visuals for your social media with the Jetpack Social Image Generator

Traditionally, creating unique and engaging imagery for social media platforms often required a basic understanding of image editing tools. Adding text to images, changing photo orientation, and tinkering with different visual styles for each social network was tedious and frustrating. But not anymore.

With Jetpack Social Advanced, you can overlay custom text onto your images and choose from a variety of styles to increase engagement on your social posts. Most importantly, you’ll save time by doing it all within the WordPress editor.

Choose your image & add custom text

Jetpack Social Advanced gives you the freedom to create social images with custom text applied to them. This is handy if you often have long blog post titles for SEO purposes, but prefer to use specific calls-to-action with your social media post images.

Sometimes the featured image of your blog post may not be the best fit to share on social platforms. With the Jetpack Social Image Generator, you can choose to share your featured image, select a different image from your media library, upload a new image, or select “no image” if you just want to create a text-based image for your socials.

Pick a template to make it your own

Tie everything together by exploring creative templates with various fonts and text placement around your image. Choose from full width images with text overlays or images with text aligned to either side.

Preview before you share

With Jetpack Social, it’s never been easier to share your WordPress content to social media.
