Sway allows you to import images from your PC, Twitter, Facebook, or a variety of other sources, including images from the Creative Commons repository on and use them to illustrate your stories. It equally makes it easy to start building layouts that look professional.

It's intuitive, and keep track of what you’re writing, and will pre-populate relevant images when it's time to look for an image.
