If you are like me, when it comes to creating engaging and striking photos for your blog, social media pages and other online platforms. Hiring a graphics designer can be costly, and most people don’t have the time or energy to learn how to use those big programs like Photoshop to manipulate and use images the way they want. That’s why I want to introduce you to CANVA and tell you why bloggers should be using this amazing photo editing tool daily.
Do you ever find yourself wanting to create an infograph? How about a call to action for your blog or Facebook timeline? Need a photo with captions? Or how about adding your own personal photos to create a collage that brings your readers closer to you? Canva does all that and more.
You can create a Canva account or do what I did which is simply sign up with Facebook (it’s just easier) and allows for sharing and printing all that much quicker.
Most of the images of Canva are free of charge, some will cost you. But at $1.00 per print or download, it’s worth it to create and save and use the images you want when you want. So what exactly does Canva do? With Canva you can create:
- FB Covers
- Calls to Action
- Twitter Covers
- Google Headers
- Blog Photos
- Business Cars
- and so much more…
Canva allows you to search for what you want. Free images are marked free and others marked by price (mainly a buck) a print. You can create frames, shapes, icons, stickers, all to use in your photos to create engaging images that help depict what you are blogging about. Canva is one of the most versatile image programs I’ve come across and I use it daily.
Here are some images I’ve created using Canva:
As you can see using Canva is super easy. You can manipulate and create any images you want, edit and crop and even upload your own images or pull from your Facebook photos. Canva makes creating images free and easy to use for your blog posts, social networks or whatever you wish.
Disclosure: I was not compensated for this post. I just think Canva is a cool tool for bloggers and wished to share it with all of you. Comments are always welcome!
