Getting Started with Canva

We love Canva and we use it for both clients and our own work to help market, promote and add fun images to social media quickly and easily. You have probably seen many “quotes” from famous people on top of an images either on Facebook or Pinterest. Yes this can be done with Photoshop, Gimp or Illustrator but Canva tends to be faster with great options that can get the job done.


What is Canva?

Design shouldn’t be hard but somewhere along the way we became bogged down with expensive, complicated software that put design out of reach for most people. Canva is here to change that, with a tool that makes design simple for everyone.

Canva gives you everything you need to easily turn ideas into stunning designs. Create designs for Web or print: blog graphics, presentations, Facebook covers, flyers, posters, invitations and so much more

What does it cost? ~ Nothing at this point

There is no cost to use Canva. It’s free to upload and design with your own images. You can also use the thousands of free illustrations and images included in the Canva library. If you’re after something more, you can choose from more than one million professional stock images and graphics.

We combine Canva with free stock photos as well (check out our post about where to find them here) and we can create very unique images for our client work, freelance business and eve to promote Press Avenue.

  1. Getting Started with Canva: Search and drag to create beautiful designs without ever leaving the Web. Canva takes care of the boring bits so you can spend more time creating. Start with a custom layout or a blank page. With all the tools in one place, there’s nothing holding you back.
  2. Simply search for the best graphics, photos, and fonts, or upload your own, then use Canva’s drag and drop tool to create a design. Design with hundreds of free elements and fonts, or choose from our library of more than 1 million premium images for $1.
  3. Take your photos to the next level with Canva’s stunning photo editor. Photo editing has never been simpler. Present a consistent look and feel on social media and in your marketing materials. With Canva you can edit your photos using preset filters or get advanced with photo editing tools like brightness, contrast, saturation, tint, blur, x-process and vignette. With more than six quadrillion options, you’ll never be stuck for choice.
  4. Canva makes it easy to work with others, letting you share and edit your designs with family, friends and coworkers. Professional designers can easily collaborate with clients. Never worry about frustrating back and forth emails again. Canva also plays nice with traditional desktop design software.
