  1. Hello Lillian, You are not the only one who does not like Hootsuite, I even went back and tryed it again because of all the hype Nope not for me either.

    Now for this Pablo, this looks interesting, I am off to check this out. Thanks for sharing.. Chery :))

    1. Hi Christine!

      I completely agree that there is much to look after on social media. That’s why I love image tools to make the process go a little more smoothly.

      Thanks for stopping by!

  2. Ah .. this is yet another informative post! Wonderful, I have to check it out … thank you so much for the information. I know of Buffer but never looked into what they do, this is a nice added benefit … thanks!

  3. Hi Lillian,

    I am a huge fan of Canva, but will say it does take some time to create images. I’m DEFINITELY going to have to check out Pablo- looks so easy and creates beautiful images.

    Thanks so much for sharing this very helpful information!

  4. This looks cool. I am going to have to look at this. I remember using buffer a while back before changes came in..I think then it worked like a relay system now it seems to be all grown up and they have apps! Perhaps I need to re look at this.. I don’t like Hootsuite either..I tried but it seems its just not over easy to work..I guess that’s why a lot of folk outsource it.


    1. William,

      Give it a try! It’s not on Buffer’s scheduling. You’ll have to go to Pablo then you can buffer it. Buffer is super easy for scheduling. Let me know how you like it.

      Take care,

  5. Buffer baffles me. But this looks like a very useful tool, so maybe I’ll take a closer look into both!

  6. Hi Lillian:

    I’m trying Pablo for the first time, but having a heck of a time trying to add or edit text. Can you advice? the instructional video does not match the layout on my screen.

    1. Hi Robert,

      Oh my! Thanks for the reminder. I do need to update this post as their interface has changed.

      Here’s a quick demo: https://www.dropbox.com/s/h3lx9xazu59rqzo/pablo%20demo.mp4?dl=0

      There are only 2 lines of text you can use. When you want to change the quote provided, click on it to highlight then you can change the font, size, and color. When you want to add your website URL, click on the Secondary Text toggle on the right. Click on it to highlight then make your changes.

      Click on the photo to get out of the text box. When you see the cross with arrows then you can move your text box.

      I hope this helps!

      Thanks again for alerting me to update this post.

      Take care,

  7. Hi Lillian,

    Great post! I would like to find out if there is a way to search categories of photos? So far, I have had some trouble finding keywords that produce more than a few images. Some keywords like healthcare, doctors, etc. don’t produce any results. Have you found an effective way to search the supposed 50,000+ photos?

    Your help is much appreciated!


    1. Hi Jasmina,

      I really need to update this post. Grr… I’m going to update it today!

      I’m glad you like this post. Buffer has recently updated it and they say they have 50,000+ photos. I think they just don’t have any healthcare type photos. I usually search for tea and coffee. haha The search actually comes up with many. I would suggest putting in a request to their support email and let them know the types of photos you’re trying to find. They are super helpful and I’m sure they’ll find a way to get those types of photos in Pablo.

      Thanks for stopping by!
