  6. Adding a main image for the post. This image should be eye-catching and attractive, something that refers to the post topic while drawing the attention of viewers. It can be silly, cute, happy, cheerful, exciting, or surprising - whatever it needs to be to bring people in to read your post. You can also use the filter tool to apply an image filter or the crop tool to crop the image with our software if needed.
