Welcome to my new feature called Wednesday Wing
Where I’ll be passing on observations, tips and information to readers I’ve made a note of.
Today I’m passing on a tip about Using Paint to create pictures for Tweets
Adding a picture to your tweet gives it INSTANT eye-appeal
I use the PAINT facility on my computer, there will be other methods. A picture will take up 23 characters of your tweet.
Making a picture 1024 pixels wide and 512 pixels high will make sure it fits completely.
1) Open up a new paint file
2) Resize the page clicking on Pixels and making the Horizontal width 1024 and the vertical height 512, uncheck the “Maintain ratio aspect box”
3) Paste your pictures to this blank space, add writing etc.
4) Save this as a j-peg file
5) Write your tweet, click “add photo”, tweet. (If your picture doesn’t show, click on the “picturelink” words in the tweet and it should appear.
This works for me on a desk top computer, but there are all sorts of other technology for your pictures
Let us know other ways you create your Twitter pictures.
