Do you sometimes wish you could design beautiful graphics without hiring a designer (by the way, check out Fiverr if you need one)? Canva makes designing all sorts of graphics easier than you think. And best of all, it’s free to use. Watch the video to find out more.
Why Canva Is the Best Online Design Tool
It took me a long time to find an online design tool that was:
a) easy to use
b) versatile enough to let me design pretty much everything
So far, Canva is the only tool that fits the bill. What I like about is the sheer number of templates and presets it offers for free. You can design pretty much anything, from social media graphics to wedding invitations, book covers, business cards – the list goes on.
Another thing I love about Canva is that it’s very easy to use – all you need to do is drag, drop, resize and type. There’s no working with complicated layers, adjusting pixels. Nothing of the sort. So, if you’re a blogger who wants to create beautiful infographics or a small business owner who doesn’t want to spend a fortune on designing brochures and business cards, Canva is definitely worth checking out.
By the way, don’t forget to check out Canva’s Design School. It’s packed with great articles that will help you learn to design great graphics.
Is Canva Really Free?
Yes, it is for the most part. I mean, it does offer premium elements that cost $1 each, but you can create beautiful designs using only free elements. Plus you can always upload your own images and use them in your designs.
The only thing that’s not available in the free version is creating transparent backgrounds. But that’s OK because you can always use a white background and then make it transparent using LunaPic, a free online image editor.
So, have fun using Canva and let me know of any other cool online design tools!
