Whether on Facebook, Twitter or Instagram you’ve seen the beautifully created banner ads, memes, profile backgrounds, downloadable flyers and posters, invitations and greeting cards. You may have even wished you had the talent to create dynamic marketing materials with a Canva WOW factor!

With Canva you don’t need a graphic design degree!

Canva is by far my favorite tool for creating social media images. I create images for our blog posts for our Facebook, Pinterest and Instagram accounts. You don’t have to be a designer. Canva has tools that are user friendly with templates, fonts, pre-formatted text, shapes, a large image gallery, with text and color formatting features. If you have zero experience with designing, but have used Microsoft Word, Facebook or Instagram some clickable menu items are exactly the same; making this tool easy to use.

So What is Canva?

Canva is an online design website that provides the right tools to easily create amazing images in the right format for almost any purpose. It comes with templates in custom dimensions, icons and design elements. You can put all these together to create your own personal images for your blog. The image gallery is filled with usable images.  Some are free to use with a released copyright. You can upload your own image from your file folders. Don’t see an image you like?  That’s okay!  For only $1 you can add images to your design from their image gallery.
