This may be the shortest post I've ever written!
You may have seen other posts on this site where I’ve mentioned my methods for creating flyers, posters, graphics for social media, for websites etc. In the early days I used Fiverr.com (which is still useful). Then I learned Photoshop, which is brilliant software – but a steep learning curve.
But now Canva has come along and it’s a game-changer. It’s the new Uber, but for graphics.
What can Canva do?
For people like you and me, who are not graphic designers, Canva can do just about anything we need it to do, including:
- Flyers / leaflets
- Anything for social media, already set up to the correct sizes
- Resumes / CVs
And just about anything else you could think of!
And it's so easy ANYONE can use it
This is the best bit – Canva is full of templates for just about anything you can imagine, which are easy to just edit for your needs. Or you can create graphics from scratch if you prefer. And everything is designed to be easy – most things are just click, drag, drop. And any time you find something that you can’t do, just go on YouTube and there will be a quick tutorial showing you how to do it.
You can save all your work, restore previous versions if you make mistakes, duplicate your work so you don’t ever have to repeat anything. There are so many great features, most of which I won’t go into now – but one example is the background remover. With just a click you can remove the background from anything.
That’s all I wanted to say really – there are better resources out there to describe all the features of Canva but I’d recommend just giving it a try. I don’t think you’ll go back after.
So please click any of my links here to try out Canva. I should mention that this is an affiliate link, so I’ll get paid a little bit for anyone who signs up – but as with everything on this site, I only EVER recommend something if I really believe in it and think it will help you.
