Free Social Media Templates

Click here for Video Tutorials

Hello! It’s been a while but I’m back and recording new tutorials. To kick things off I’m offering a couple of Social Media Templates to use in Photoshop (and Experience Design (Xd) if you want, more on this another time).

This video outlines how to use these social media templates:

The Photoshop Templates or PSDTs are a series of Artboards sized for various social media channels. By selecting the artboard and dragging in images the content is ‘clipped’ into the artboard and thus the right size. You’ll notice that the artboards themselves are labelled at xxx.jpg. Doing this and invoking Generation > Image Assets all your posts are automatically generated and formatted into their own folder, sounds too good to be true right?

There are two templates in the download, one for social media posts and one for channel set-up that includes headers, avatars etc. I’d really appreciate feedback on these files, how can they be improved, what else could be included etc.

These files are free, all I ask is that you share in some way to access them, TipSquirrel is dedicated to remaining free for all and spreading the word really helps to achieve this.

  1. First I’d like to thank you for this generous freebie; however … despite the fact that I liked it on FB, it didn’t unlock anything as a result … how do I access the downloads at this point?

    Files will not open in Photoshop CC 2015. “Could not complete your request because it is not the right kind of document.” Downloaded icons are white doc with black Ps letters. Any way to fix this?

  3. This is my second request … I checked out the video, I posted/shared to FB, but the free download did not unlock … it’s not the end of the world but I was really interested in the template … can you please unlock the download for me or tell me what I’m doing wrong … thanks in advance …

  4. I shall email you a copy ASAP Neal. Apologies.

  5. Sorry Nancy, Templates only run in CC. I’d say change the file to a PSD but I think Artboards are also a later addition.

  6. Not bad. Very helpful for beginner level designer.
