Enhance by Hootsuite Media – Stock Photo Editor, Social Media Crop Sizes + Watermarks

Enhance Stock Photo Editor, Social Media Crop Sizes + Watermarks - by Hootsuite

Millions of images are shared across social media platforms every day. Images attract the viewers eye far more than a simple textual content post. A high-quality, visually appealing, and shareable image is more likely to actually make the viewer stop scrolling through their noisy and distracting feed, pay attention, then perform that desired action of engaging – Liking, comment or sharing.

For businesses trying to effectively manage their social media marketing there is a real challenge! Sourcing or obtaining unique, interesting and brand related images. Preparing the selected images for posting, in the correct various size formats, adding brand watermark or Call To Actions such as a website URL, then posting the image to the selected social media channel on the installed app… or scheduling it for posting at an optimal later time.

So how can we do all of this?

Combine the benefits of arguably one of the most popular Social Media Management platforms – Hootsuite, with their photo editor/enhancer ‘Hootsuite Enhance’. It’s designed to make it quick and easy to help your photos get the most attention possible.

I am constantly being asked by clients the simplest and quickest way to manage image editing without having to learn something as complex as Adobe Photoshop. At the same time trying to remember the optimal image sizes for posting on each social network, or creating correctly sized cover images and profile pictures for the social media channels. I highly recommend the use of Hootsuite Enhance, the free photo editing app, to ensure your images are cropped and sized perfectly for each social network.

Within Enhance you can make your social media post imagery more exciting by adding filters, borders, stickers, text, or a watermark of your company’s logo.

Stuck sourcing your own images? You can also find a selection of stock photo images that are free for commercial use.

Share the images that you have composed for social media posts from Enhance straight to the social networks of your choice with connectivity to; Facebook, Twitter, Instagram, LinkedIn, Pinterest and more. And of course, with the benefit of Hootsuite you can schedule your posts for optimal posting later in the day using the Hootsuite mobile app. Hootsuite is very well known for supporting lots of different platforms while offering a wide range of settings and dynamic features.

    An interesting shift in videography for businesses marketing campaigns has been to film in 4K resolution in portrait mode instead of horizontal. Now, this might seem counter-intuitive however with the rise of short video format social networks like Instagram and the sheer amount of pixels obtained with 4K video, this single video can be cropped down and cut into various stories to create unique videos across multiple channels. Even without access to such a camera, next time you’re filming an event/marketing campaign at your business, consider whipping out a smart phone and filming in vertical for instagram stories.
