Learn how to source and manipulate images

A picture paints a thousand words (probably more) but loads of people I speak to find the whole notion of images scary.  They’re worried about finding the right ones, about having the right to use them and about how on earth they’ll make them fit the ‘hole’ they need to fit into.

If this sounds like you, then you’ll love what I have to share with you today.  The first is a 14-day free trial at Bigstock, which you can access here.  The second is PicMonkey, a online photo editor, which you can get for free here.  The Free Bigstock 14 day offer allows you to download 5 images a day, every day for 14 days completely free.  If my maths is right, that makes a whopping 70 images. 

Decide on some broad themes before you start to download on Bigstock and then get yourself set up with Google Drive to store the images for when you want to use them.  If you don’t have Photoshop or haven’t yet worked out how to size images on your phone, tablet or desktop, PicMonkey’s a walk in the park.  If you’ve been wary of images up until now, both of these tools will revolutionise your way of thinking.  I promise.
