    Pros: 

    Very easy to implement into my templates

    Cons: 

    Misses quick integration to existent CMS

    The service is quite clear. You set some text to display on top of an image, that will serve as the image displayed in social cards. You only need to add a couple of lines of code to the header of your template and voilà everything will be ready.

Heya, Product Hunters! I’m Armin, co-maker of Placid. We deliver Social Images as a Service: Placid lets you generate lovely Share Images for Twitter and Facebook via our API. (And more Social Image Formats soon!) Here’s how it works: 👉 Choose a preset design from our library. 👉 Customize your template with default values for colors, text, photos / logos. 👉 Integrate the meta tags into your project. 👉 Change parameters of the Image URL in the meta tag to dynamically fill elements of the template. You can f.ex. generate your blog article’s title on to the image or fill a browser window with a screenshot of a website. You will be able to step up your social game without needing to create custom og:images and twitter:images from Photoshop templates every single time. We started building Placid as a tool to automate Social Image Generation for our own projects and we figured it’s something that other people could use too. For now, we concentrated on providing Meta Images, but we’re already testing Placid for other use cases, like generated Pinterest Images. So we’ll soon add: ✏️ An editor to create templates from scratch (and with custom Image Dimensions) 🛠 More options to customize Presets 🖼 More Presets (also for Instagram Posts and Stories, Pinterest Pins, Facebook Posts,..) We’d love your feedback and suggestions for missing features or preset options 😄 If you need something specific, we’re always happy to help. Armin, Co-Maker of Placid

Great design. I've been looking for something like this since Pieter Levels wrote about how he does it but which takes a lot of know-how. This is way easier and is perfect for my needs!
