To make something look impactful or eye catching, it’s good to get to grips with some basic programs. My tool of choice is Canva, a simple drag and drop style tool that enables you to create fantastic designs in next to no time.
I use it for pretty much everything – from all of the graphics I use on Instagram, to the ones I use here on my blog and over on Facebook. There is so much you can do with Canva, and I barely scratch the surface of its capabilities. But, if you are interested in how to create some graphics for your website or social media accounts, have a watch of the video below where I walk you through some of the basics of using Canva.
I have the pro version, which is £8.99 per month, this gives me access to a huge range of graphics and extra functionality, so for me it really is worth it. There is a free version too, which I used for a long time before upgrading, so it’s completely adequate. I’d suggest having a trial of the pro version (free for a month) so you can give it a good road test, and then decide whether you need it or the free version.
If you would like to have a go with Canva, then you can find it here – no downloads required, you just log into the Canva website and create directly from there.
