Image editing options in Metricool
Don’t worry if Photoshop isn’t your biggest strength — the Metricool image editor is all you need.
What tools does it offer?
With this first option, you can crop your image to the size you need.
You can also rotate your pictures, zoom in or out, or add an X or Y mirror effect. The ‘Crop/Aspect ratio’ feature is particularly useful for posting to social media as it lets you fit images to a specific size, such as the Twitter header.
The ‘Editing’ tool lets you alter all the aspects of the images themselves.
In other words, brightness, saturation, exposure, temperature, gamma, sharpness, and vignette.
Filters have become one of the most widely used editing resources on social networks.
Metricool gives you a wide range of eye-catching filters to give your image that extra oomph: chrome, cold, black, gold, sepia, blue, etc.
Emojis, logos and images that you can upload from your computer and add to your image. Ideal for adding watermarks or creating edits with social media logos.
Go into ‘Paint’ mode and draw whatever you want over your image.
Marker, arrow mode, lines, or rectangles to take advantage of the various shapes, add text, or choose the thickness of the drawing. And if you need to, you can always erase what you’ve created and start over.
Add a frame to your image with multiple editing possibilities.
Color it, choose the size, zoom in, choose the offset, round the corners, or even repeat the frame to create a totally different image.
The ‘Censor’ option lets you pixelate a part of the image you don’t want to be seen or, at least, not seen clearly.
Editing images using pixels?
Modify your photo with the Metricool ‘Resize’ tool. Choose the pixels and you’re done.
That’s all you need to know about Metricool’s feature for editing and posting images on social media. However, as always, you’ll need to create an account to use it.
