I want to make a cover for my facebook group using a template. I'm a beginner so that I'm confused about choosing the right software. Where can I create a cover easily? I have some knowledge of Photoshop and Illustrator. Which one should I use? I have some png template downloaded.

  • Since you are asking this question, PS and AI might not be ideal for you... I mean you might be able to do it just fine, buuuut... I happened to find this online creator for social media images: crello.com — I only tried it just now pretty hastily and it seems good enough. It has a facebook cover preset + free templates. It is a freemium service. If you know how to write an email, you'll probably manage to use that too. You can create a design without making an account, but apparently, you have to create an account before you can download the design (it has FB and Google singups) . – Joonas Jan 10 at 8:27

Use whatever works for you and results in the final item you need.

Any choice of software has much to do with a users preference. This is especially true if the final product is to merely be a raster image.

    Scott's right: Photoshop is a pixel-based design application (with some vector tools mixed in) and Illustrator is a vector-based design application (with some pixel-based tools mixed in) and either can produce pixel-output designs. Illustrator's workflow will largely be based on editable shapes, curves & lines, with strokes and fills, and the results are exported to either vector or raster file types; Photoshop's workflow will largely be based on painting & erasing pixels, and the results are exported to many raster file types; choose which you prefer to use! – GerardFalla Jan 10 at 16:16
