"Great for social media posts"

What do you like about Pablo?

Pablo is another tool we use alongside Canva, because one does something better than the other. I personally find Pablo more suitable for the purposes of quickly creating and editing images aimed at posting on social media. The tool is simply dedicated to this purpose better than Canva. All is in there and the process becomes extermely fast and hassle-free. How easy it is. I mean, you just upload a shot, choose the style of your text, write what you want... and you are done. No weird things, no more options, no more time than the one needed to do something easy... A simple tool to get easy images with text.

What do you dislike about Pablo?

Resolution, it could improve and reach the original resolution given by the shot. Right now you get a compressed and low-res image that looks cool on social media tools like Facebook or Twitter, but too small to print or you use on some websites with great retina resolution (it's unfair saying this because Pablo was made by Buffer focusing on social media images, so the low-res can be taken as an "optimized" version for sharing)

What have you been using it for and what problems did Pablo solve?

If you need a simple, easy and fast app to create images with customized text, Pablo is the way to go. You get what you need to create images for daily use on social media channels, it could get new features, but looks like they update the tool slow... so check it, if fits your needs, well done, if not, maybe you will need to check other app to get what you are looking for as probably won't get an update with new features for several months.

"Pablo, great and versatile online tool to create custom images for Social Networks"

What do you like about Pablo?

I really like the different templates and images that Pablo has, I like that I can choose the right image format for the social network where I will use the image, facebook, instagram, twitter, among others. I can also make promotional banners and images for blog. It has different filters for the images and styles of letters. Something that I love is its function called ADD QUOTES, with this function I can add phrases from my favorite celebrities and so my image is more interesting!. I can also add the logo of my company. In short, Pablo is a tool that I use a lot because it is very easy to use, it has different tools and a very striking result for the networks is achieved! it is wonderful!

What do you dislike about Pablo?

Its beauty is its curse - Pablo is incredibly quick and easy to use, but that means the features available are super simple. If I want to do more than quickly add text to an image, I need to go elsewhere. But if I just need to add some text and I want to put it right in my Buffer, BOOM, easy peasy. Since I use it I have not had any problems, but I would like to have more templates and designs

What have you been using it for and what problems did Pablo solve?

With Pablo I have been able to create great personalized images for my social networks. I am a photographer that seeks to attract the attention of new people, clients, and followers. I like to show my work to everyone. and a great way to do it has been thanks to social networks and Pablo.
