Depositphotos is a library with over 80 million high-quality and royalty-free stock photos and vector images. I use their Flexible Plan for more than two years now. Depositphotos’ great content and affordable pricing are what make them one of the strongest competitors in the industry. 

Adobe Photoshop

I pretty much use Photoshop to create all of my blog graphics, and I even used it to create Pinterest Power Up Ebook. I used to create graphics with Canva, but the interface seemed clunky to me. Therefore, I decided to move to Photoshop, which is more professional software. Although the interface can be complicated for anyone new to Photoshop, it is a powerful software that allows you to create high quality visual content.
