Your images must be better than ever before.

The PixTeller graphic design tool can make your graphics look professional.

Also, this tool can make your Instagram posts look so dazzling people will be sure to consider your posts #InstaGreat.

How to Use PixTeller: A Tutorial

Go to PixTeller.com. Click “Start Designing.” Log in using either your Facebook or Google account information.

Project 1: Blog Graphic on the Forever Free Plan

Step 1: Click “Pinterest Post.”

Step 2: Click on a template you want to modify. Scroll down. Click “Use” to find yourself in Edit mode.

Step 3: Once in Edit mode, I resized the pixels to a vertical of 1024 which I knew would be fine for a blog graphic at WordPress or Twitter. PizxTellerThe screenshot shows your PixTeller dashboard and where you would go to change the dimensions of your image. Page Properties allows you to change the dimensions.

Step 4: I modified the words, resized the text boxes, and moved them around.

Step 5: I titled my project, saved my creation for future use, and downloaded the graphic to my computer. When you download, your choices are .png, .jpg, or pdf. When downloading, you’ll be asked if you want to upgrade to a paid plan. If you don’t, click “Download anyway.”


Easy and Quick!

Project 2: Instagram Post on the Forever Free Plan:

Step 1: Click “Instagram Square.”

Step 2: Scroll through the choices. Find one you like and click.

Step 3: Click “Use” and modify. I changed the text, bolded the font at the bottom, and made the text box wider at the bottom.

PixTellerOf course, like with any graphic design program, you can change the font colors and styles. I was going to make the letters in the bottom box red, but I didn’t want to detract from the red heart. PixTeller has a great many inspirational images like this.

I’d planned to design my own to show you how you can design your own graphic, but this was too perfect for my needs to pass up. PixTeller definitely has the best quotes images.

Project 3: Blog Graphic with the Premium Plan

Go to PixTeller.com. Scroll down to “Create from Scratch.”

Once I was in Edit Mode, I titled my design. and changed the dimensions.

Step 1: I brought up the color palette. I chose a brought color that would stand out on Pinterest. You can turn down the opacity if you choose. I kept the color as it was.

Step 2: I added an image. I clicked “Add as Background.”

Step 3: I went to “Filters and Effects” and chose “Cross process.”

Step 4: I set Image Capacity to 70.

Step 5: I chose, modified, and enlarged the text. Note: You can even upload your own text even though many styles are available to you. You can change the letter spacing if you desire.

      I agree. Making graphics can be time-consuming. Using PixTeller is fast! Since I discovered it, I’ve made many Instagram inspirational quotes and my Instagram following is growing as a result.
      Thanks for your comments. You’re officially entered in the PixTeller giveaway!

    Even a color blind person might make great use of this product (I know I am going to!) I would definitely like to be entered into the drawing, please.

    Thank you for discovering and then sharing your find with all of us in the blogosphere!

  2. Andrea | at 10:12 am

    I’m only mildly familiar with Canva, but this tool seems like a great option. I think it might be better for someone like me, who is graphically challenged at the best of times!

    • Janice Wald | at 12:00 pm

      Thank you for commenting; you are officially entered, but remember, win or lose, PixTeller does have a free plan. Good to see you Andria. Thanks for coming by.

  3. The Recipe Hunter | at 11:44 am

    I would love to try this tool. Using Canva but also found running out ot free options. I always use images in my posts but would love more options.
    This may just be the best one I have seen to replace Canva with

  4. Ryan Biddulph | at 12:39 pm

    Rocking stuff Janice! Pix Teller is super duper useful these days as sites like Pinterest and Instagram really take off. I for one am on the IG bandwagon big time now because I love sharing images from my travels through New Zealand. I also see the difference in engagement rates when I doctor the photos a wee bit with filters or other edits. Folks love some flair, some pizzazz, and it seems like this tool helps you achieve that end. Thanks for sharing 🙂

    Hi Janice,

    Thanks for the share

    This is the first time I am hearing about this. I know it will make my Pinterest marketing much easier. I have a few blogs that get some traffic from Pinterest but creating great images can be hard. This will make it much easier.

    Canva has been good to me but it seems this one is even better. On TechCrunch’s statement that PixTeller will make graphic designers obsolete, I do not think so. It will instead make their jobs much easier. No matter what automation comes along, people just never bother to tackle these tasks by themselves and prefer to give them to a pro instead.

    Thanks for sharing! On to check PixTeller out.

    • Janice Wald | at 12:08 pm

      Hi Bruce,
      I read your YouTube link since it came in with your comment. I still have a long way to go to benefit from my competitors in any area. That strategy makes sense. I wanted to comment but couldn’t find a comment box.
      Thank you for your thoughtful comments here. I am throwing in the towel when it comes to creating great photos and graphic designs and letting PixTeller do the heavy lifting. Thanks for writing. You’re entered in the drawing for the premium plan.

  6. Terri Webster Schrandt | at 5:54 pm

    This is intriguing, Janice, but it seems similar to both Canva and PicMonkey. I use Canva infrequently but use PicMonkey constantly now, as I have a premium account, which costs the same as this. Great article and useful tips for those looking for a good graphic design option.

    • Janice Wald | at 12:10 pm

      Hi Terri,
      Thanks for calling my article “great.” Much appreciated. I used PicMonkey sporadically. Since they started charging, I haven’t used it at all. I am enjoying my PixTeller account. If you win the premium plan, you can compare it to PicMonkey’s plan. Thanks for writing. I am happy you’re back in the “blogging” game.

  7. Carol Taylor | at 6:14 pm

    Another great post Janice..I use Canva which is easy to use but sometimes they are lacking on free options..This new app sounds cool and I would love to be entered in the draw…Thank you Janice ?x

  8. Robbie Pink | at 9:29 pm

    Thank you for the opportunity to win this great prize! Good luck to everyone!

    PixTeller looks awesome! I use graphics, but not as much as I like because I have trouble finding or creating what I really want. this may be just the answer to my problem!

    thanks again!

  9. John Reynold Loberiza | at 7:34 pm

    I am currently using Canva on my Android tablet most of the time. But I am always open for an alternative. Although Pixteller doesn’t have an Andoid app, the web app is awesome.

    I already tried it on my android and it works well.

    I sure love to included in the draw, if I’m not too late yet. 🙂

      • John Reynold Loberiza | at 2:09 pm

        Thank you very much, Janice.
        I already made my first graphics using Pixteller. It’s a greeting for the Mother’s Day for my beautiful wife and guess what.

        I was able to make a design for a mug using Pixteller.

        Currently I am making a blog about it and submit on bitlanders, and going to make another one for my personal blog.

        Thank you very much once again.
