Visual content has always reigned supreme. Including nice images and graphics in your articles is always a plus. However, what do you do when you do not take pictures yourself or have no designing skills? You use a tool like Canva.
Canva is free and lets you create all sorts of things, including presentations, posters, documents, cards, photocollages, business cards, invitations, and Facebook banners / ads. To get started, all you have to do is sign up for an account.
Once logged into your dashboard, choose the design, then select the layout, text, and background. Everything is fully customizable (e.g., colors, font, font size). Items can be moved around and deleted at will, and you can include your own pictures.
When you are done, share your masterpiece on Facebook or Twitter, or click the “Link & Publish” button to save it to your computer.
Overall, Canva is super easy to use. Let me show you:
