I was wondering if there are any online or executable programs that would allow me to create images for some of my alg sheets. If there are any please let me know, the only one I currently know of is cubecriders visualizer and I don't really know how to become proficient using it.
There was a post made with this same topic but guess what that was made 7 years ago so maybe there have been new programs created.

Visual cube is excellent.

It has a mode for showing the top face and around that the n.th layer colors. That is very helpfull for OLL/PLL documentation.

But it also has one disadvantage: It can not generate flat images of all 6 sides! (so a picture like tnoodle shows for scrambles). This flat images are sometimes more helpfull than a 3D image if you need to see more than top face + its last layer.

@Everyone: N's-cvt already knows about VisualCube. It was mentioned in the first post. They are wondering if there is anything else.

For me, I like to draw my own images. I've used VisualCube a lot, but it becomes tedious. It is easier to just make your own in an image editing program and use a fill tool to change the colors.

Oh yeah, I forgot about the simple image editor.

    With ActiveSheet.Pictures.Insert(PicPath)
        With .ShapeRange
            .LockAspectRatio = msoTrue
            .Width = 50
            .Height = 50
        End With
        .Left = ActiveSheet.Cells(i, 5).Left
        .Top = ActiveSheet.Cells(i, 5).Top
