As a non-designer who sometimes needs to draw, this is a perfect tool. Instead of talking in inches and pixels, which I don’t know anything about, imagine you use a tool where you just say “Facebook group cover photo.” And have immediate access to ready-to-use designed templates, or just a blank Facebook group cover photo image to fill in at our convenience.
With an easy to use drag and drop system. Sorry designers, but for my purposes now I’m mostly freelance.
I am not a designer. But as a copywriter, sometimes I need to think about the visual aspect of my copy or my ads. And sometimes, I need to test images and even create them.
And for me, sometimes it is great pain. I used to have Photoshop, but I always felt like I was only using 10%. And even the 10% I was using was too complicated.
I wanted a simple tool. And Stencil is perfect for that. They have the templates ready where you only have to select the type of image you want to create, and they automatically adjust it to the size you want.
For example, if I want to make the cover photo for a LinkedIn profile, I click on the LinkedIn profile size template, and here it is.
From Facebook, LinkedIn, Instagram, whatever. It’s just a matter of creating a new file, choosing the image size according to the template you want to edit, and starting to edit.
For me, that’s the best reason I’m a Stencil fan. Also, having access to the Unsplash images makes it easy to deploy the picture of my choice without downloading the image from Unsplash and adding it there.
No, everything is there, ready to produce what I need. Since I’m not a designer, I never needed Canva or Photoshop after getting Stencil.
As with most template platforms, you always want more. For some social media platforms, your template options are still not enough.
When I mention the template options, I am not talking about the file size because I spoke of most things. In Stencil we can find ready-to-go templates for Facebook Ads, Pinterest Pins, etc., where we need to edit the image, copy it, and voila.
In most cases, these models don’t do much with them as they are still too limited for what I need. I usually end up needing to scratch everything. But luckily, it’s easy to do, so it’s always a no-brainer for me to use Stencil.
