Create Blog Images*

Having at least one or two images in your blog posts will break up the walls of text and make it easier for your readers to understand and enjoy your posts. They serve as supplementary information, whether it's a picture of your most recent cooking escapade, a comic about a process, or a simple infographic with relevant statistics. Preview images are also important when it comes to sharing your post on social media or even just hosting it in a menu page. No longer is there just your snappy title and some text, there's also an image to draw the eye. Most importantly, these images are fun to make with a little help from our templates!

3 Tips for Creating the Perfect Blog Images


Be Consistent

You want your blog to have a consistent voice, so why not your images? Header and preview images especially should follow a pattern within their respective categories. Let people know it's your work by maintaining a consistent set of imagery. This could include fonts or color schemes, or even how the image is set up.


Make it Shareable

While you might not want all of your images to be shareable, it's helpful to have one or two that your readers can spread through social media, and thus promote your articles. Adding text to some of your images helps with this, as does small (or large) infographics.


Don't Worry About Size

Most blogging platforms will automatically resize your image. Larger dimensions (not file size) are better, so the image will scale down and not up. If it scales up, you risk your images being blurry. However, it's best to stay with landscape images unless you plan to divide your post into two columns.

Frequently Asked Questions About Creating Blog Images

Why are images important for blog posts?

Images can help break up the text, making the post easier to read and more visually appealing. They can also help illustrate your points and make your content more memorable.

How do I make sure I have the right to use an image?

Make sure to check the licensing and usage rights for any image you use. Some images may require attribution or payment to the creator. It's best to use royalty-free or Creative Commons licensed images.

What size should blog images be?

The size of blog images can vary depending on the design and layout of your blog. However, it's best to use images that are at least 1200 pixels wide for optimal viewing on high-resolution screens.

How can I optimize my blog images for faster loading times?

Optimize your images by compressing them to reduce file size, using a format like JPEG or PNG, and reducing the dimensions to match the size needed on your blog. You can also use lazy loading or a content delivery network (CDN) to improve loading times.

How many images should I use in a blog post?

There is no set rule for the number of images to use in a blog post. However, it's best to use images that are relevant to your content and help illustrate your points. Too many images can be distracting, so use them sparingly.
