Hello!! We are back for more blogging basics!!! Dana and I are sharing what we have learned with you guys in our Blogging 101 series.
This week I will show you to make your own free social media icons! I use PicMonkey to do this and it takes no time! Then you have custom social media icons to match your site! You can choose the shape you like and make the colors custom match your site for free and it really takes no time at all. Quick, easy, custom and free, is there anything better?
Now PicMonkey is free but for I think $4.99 a month you get the upgrade which I have because it is only $5 a month and I like the extras.
So making your own social media icons is a cinch.
Now open Picmonkey and let’s get started.
You want to open your image, just use a blank 100×100 white image.
Go to overlays (that little icon on the left that has a heart and conversation balloon thingy) And choose the shape you like best. I like to choose my icon shapes from the labels category under overlays.
Choose your shape and color.
Then choose the same overlay in a different color and slightly smaller and place it over the existing one. So in this case I put a small gray one over my pink one.
Easy peasy so far! Now when you are in the overlay section up at the top you have the option to click on “Your Own” in which you will choose the icons you previously uploaded from Something Swanky.
You will choose the icon you want and place it on your shape.
Adjust the color to your liking and done!!!
I wish I could have included more photos but it is seriously that easy that there was only a few pictures to take lol.
So there you go quick and easy way to get yourself some free custom social media icons!!
I will be more than happy to answer any questions you have!! I love to help!
