This is a pretty interesting plugin that will allow you to create some great custom images, you will need an account with them pretty easy to get setup right as you are using the plugin, (must admit I am liking this new trend by developers of plugins requiring account that are naming it easy to set them up).
The plugin gives you options to upload images or use images you already have uploaded to create new layered imaged and to add text to an image all in all a pretty6 good plugin for customizing images.
What they say about it.
The Pikiz plugin allows you to create and customize images before inserting them in your blog post. The plugin is free and once installed, you have access to all Pikiz editor features. You can add text to your images, choose your favorite font, change the text color and size and apply creative filters. You can also upload your own stickers or logos.
Moreover, if you have no idea of what kind of images to use, the Pikiz plugin offers you a comprehensive collection of photographs. Images are organized by categories to simplify your research; just pick one or upload your own.
Another important feature of the Pikiz WordPress plugin is the photo crop option. With it, you can easily crop your photo and fit it with your WordPress theme image size preset. This feature also helps you crop the unnecessary elements out of your image and only highlight its key characteristics. All you have to do is select the WordPress default image ratio, or crop your image using custom height and width.
In addition, the Pikiz plugin gives you the possibility to customize your blog post featured image before setting it.
1000+ free background images,
350 awesome stickers,
Option to upload images and stickers,
Filters, overlay to customize your images,
Around 200 nice fonts,
Customized text layouts (color, size and background color) to compose beautiful messages.
Customize and automatically set blog post featured image.
Option to crop and resize images.
Well their easy account creation from the plugin setup did not work very well seemed to go in a loop and not create the account. Other than that the plugin seems to be pretty nice. It allows you to create popup surveys for your visitors so you can start to gauge their likes and dislikes about your site. The surveys are simple one questions with multiple choice answers.
Pretty straight forward and may help you solve some issue with your site or get some great feedback on what is most annoying on your site.
This plugin I may have talked about in the past but though it should be brought forward again. It is a great way to bring information over to your website and share articles from across the web. It make the job of sharing an article though your website an easy task . It is not a cheap plugin but provides many great tools for sharing information and links.
You simply place the ink into the curation suite plugin it pull all the relevant info from the link suck as text and images for you to choose from, makes it easy to take a snippit and then make your comments and the post that info on your site.
A / B test featured images automatically. Download and easily upload two featured images to any post, page or Woocommerce product. Plugin A/B automatically tests and optimizes to display the image generating more clicks.
WordPress post excerpts can be a great way to hand-craft the summary of your content. Unfortunately, writing post excerpts isn't as nice of an experience as what you find elsewhere in WordPress. Want to include links in your excerpts or bold some text? Advanced Post Excerpts is designed to change that, by giving your post edit screen an easy, intuitive interface for writing great post excerpts.
