Attention Graphic Designers, Creative Pastors, Social Media Soldiers, and the Guy Who Loads His Pastor’s Sermon Slides onto the Big Screen: I have the pill for all your pain.
It’s called LiveSwap. It’ll make your job easier, your graphics better, and your digital presence stronger.
LiveSwap is graphic design software for churches. But it’s really so much more. It makes keeping up with digital and social media a breeze. I love it and I feel guilty I haven’t recommended it sooner–it’ll be a game-changer for your church. Here’s why I’m thankful for LiveSwap:
1. One Click Resize
Have you ever tried to turn a JPG sermon slide into a Facebook post? Twitter banner? YouTube Channel Art?! In the olden days, you’d need the layered file and a lot of time.
In the age of LiveSwap, you’ve been set free with One Click Resizing. Turn your graphic from an Instagram post to an email header. One click. From SD to HD. One click. From a Facebook post to a business card. One…yes again…click. And LiveSwap doesn’t cut corners: they automatically reposition background, images, and text so you don’t lose anything vital.
2. Easy to Use
LiveSwap is an online editor. There’s no software to download. Login on any device and your projects are there, ready and waiting. The interface is clean and intuitive. You’ll be comfortable using it within a minute or two.
3. Beautiful Graphics
LiveSwap’s pre-loaded graphics are professional, high quality, and beautiful. There’s no filler. It’s a curated selection and you won’t find better design anywhere else. They’re also current. Right now, for example, Thanksgiving and Christmas graphics are readily available.
If you prefer to design from scratch, you can do that too. Set your custom size, upload your own files and photos, and you can still resize with one click.
4. Phenomenal Stock of Photos
With a LiveSwap subscription you’ll have free access to the photo stock of CreationSwap and Unsplash. No more searching for free pics that are barely acceptable. No more debating whether to buy that paid photo. You’ll have all the quality stock photos you need right inside LiveSwap.
5. Created for Churches
LiveSwap’s site and graphics—the whole concept—was made for churches and Christian ministries. The people at LiveSwap understand what you need and they provide it on a level that exceeds the design standards of similar services created for the general public.
Pricing: $9/month (cancel any time). Or $99/year.
Pro Tip: If you join CreationSwap ($19/month. Or $199/year), you’ll get LiveSwap free. I suggest considering this if you’re a regular graphic designer and especially if you do print pieces. CreationSwap gives you access to high-res layered .AI and .PSD files. As well as video and audio resources. If you’re just doing social media/digital work, LiveSwap is more than enough for you.
(Just to be clear: the $9 LiveSwap subscription gives you access to CreationSwap’s photos. But not to their audio, video, and layered graphic files.)
I simply love what they do—they save churches and ministries time, money, and allow them to have a professional digital presence on par with any large organization.
I was thrilled the day I discovered them, and I’m continually impressed with their commitment to excellence.
