How do I post on social media?

Your designs can be uploaded directly to social media from your My Stuff page. You can create posts for Facebook, Twitter and Instagram, and these can be shared across multiple channels. This means you can share your design to multiple pages and groups on Facebook, and your Twitter account at the same time. 

Create a social media post through your My Stuff 

Here will explain how you can publish your post on social media via the My Stuff page.

Go to your My Stuff. Click the downward arrow on your design to find the ‘Publish to Social Media’ option.

Get started by connecting to Facebook, Twitter or Instagram. You will be able to connect to both networks as you go. Click the 'Manage Accounts' link to switch from various social media accounts.

Enter your caption, use the blue plus sign button to add your page/group/account. If it’s a video, you’ll also need to add the video title. Then publish. If you haven't purchased the design, you can still publish the design, but the post will contain a PosterMyWall watermark. You can also schedule your post by clicking the calendar icon besides the purchase button.

Publish through the editor

You can create and publish your social media post all in one page. In the PosterMyWall editor, design your social media post and once done, you can publish via the yellow download button. Here's what you need to do: 

  • Click download. 
  • Select the Publish tab in the download dialog (you can choose between Download or Publish). 
  • Now select Social Media.
  • Enter your caption, select the page you'd like to post on and publish.

Posting on a Facebook Group

Please note, you can only post on a Facebook group if you are an administrator. You will need to add the PosterMyWall app to the group before you can post.

This can be done by using the publishing option, select the group you’d like to post to, and hit ‘publish’. You’ll find an error similar to what’s shown below.

Publishing costs

Publishing (and scheduling) on social media is not free, though if you've purchased the design you need to post, then it's free. Here's how it works. 

If you're not subscribed to PosterMyWall Premium or Premium plus, you can still publish your designs for free, however the published design will have a watermark. However, you can avoid this by purchasing the design in advance, or by using the 'pay and publish' option in the publishing interface. 

If you want to publish for free, just use the slider, as highlighted below.

For Premium subscribers, all images (that do not contain Getty stock) are free to post, and will not contain a watermark. Images with Getty stock and videos can be posted for 1 and 3 credits provided they haven't been purchased already. In that case it will be free to post. 

For Premium Plus subscribers, images and videos (that do not contain Getty stock) are free to post and will not contain a watermark. Images and videos with Getty stock can be purchased with credits.
