Using Canva to Create Graphics
What is Canva?
Canva is a graphic design platform, used to create social media graphics, presentations, posters, documents and other visual content. The app includes templates for users to use. The platform is free to use and offers paid subscriptions such as: Canva Pro and Canva for Enterprise for additional functionality and elements.
Why use Canva?
Canva makes branding images as simple as a drag and drop. Whether you choose to use your logo, social media handles, or a hashtag, what was once a time-consuming task will only take a few minutes. Canva’s transparency tool also means that branding your images can look sleek and non-invasive to the viewer. You can choose from a wide range of templates and stock elements to spruce up your menus or even presentations!
Additionally, gifs and videos can be used as backgrounds or pictures on your work! However, Canva falls short with its range of elements, when compared to search engines like Google.
Is it worth it?
Deciding how to handle money is always a constant effort, so with this in mind, Canva offers a 30 day free trial for you to tour all the benefits that pro offers you. Of course, whether you think it is worth it or not, all comes down to you.
With that out of the way, let’s get into the different options that canva offers you:
