Important note about licenses

I did my best to review all the sources mentioned below to make sure the photos are licensed under creative common public domain, meaning that you can do whatever you want with the pictures, even use it for commercial use. I would still advise you to check for yourself and if you notice that there are restrictions, please notify us in the comments below.

Visual graphic tools

There are many paid and free visual graphic tools. I often used the Open Source tools IncScape and Gimp. You can download them for free and they're fairly easy to work with, after watching a few tutorials.

Since I started using Canva, I hardly ever used them. Canva's freemium has a lot of options and beautiful built in fonts, icons, illustrations and more. You don't need to install any software and it's very intuitive. I would definitely recommend Canva as your first tool.

Similar options are Snappa and Desygner.
