I love to take pictures and use software to edit photos and create designs. I also have a soft spot for cool new technology tools that infuse these two subjects together. This is why I’m doing a little happy dance about Canva!
While Photoshop and InDesign are still standard for more advanced professionals, Canva offers something with less of a learning curve. It also doesn’t come with a hefty price tag. Online collaboration is possible by sharing a link of your work-in-progress.
Canva has the basic design elements:
- Images (you can purchase royalty free images for $1.00 each or upload and use your own photos and graphics for free)
- Font Library
- Templates (create from scratch or Canva has hundreds to choose from)
- Social Media, Pinterest, Facebook Cover, Facebook Post, Facebook App, Facebook Cover, Real Estate Flyer, Presentation, Poster, Blog Graphic, Kindle Cover, Google+ Photo, Twitter Header, Invitation, Document, Card, Photo Collage and Business Card
While Canva does provide interactive tutorials on it’s site, if you’re looking for someone to create something for you or offer a one on one session, contact me. I’ll be happy to help you! Often, the designs I create inspire my writing. Below are some examples of designs and digital content I’ve created using my own photographs with Canva.
