Why You Need Stunning Images
Eye catching images will make you stand out amongst the millions of others on social media! Simple text or plan images aren’t enough anymore, you have to grab your audience by the eye balls! Thankfully Canva makes this super easy! They have templates for just about any social media platform you want and even the option for custom dimensions. I’m going to show you how to make the best images for free!
How to Start
Create a new account or log into your existing account
After you log in you end up here, now you need to pick a template. I’m using the social media template.
If you click “more” you’ll see canva offers free templates for just about everything. You can also create your own graphic with custom dimensions by clicking at the top where it says “Use custom dimensions”. So pick what you want to make and we’ll start making our graphic! Info-graphs and things with a lot of little pieces are harder to learn on so if this is your first time using Canva or any type of graphic design, I recommend starting with something simple such as a social media graphic.
Designing Your Graphic Using a Template
Canva has a great number of pre-made templates, free and premium. These are the fastest and easiest way to create a great graphic in only minutes.
Free Style Design
Once you’re comfortable with Canva, which doesn’t take long because their site is very user friendly, you can start making your very own designs! Learn how to start with a blank canvas and design something wonderful.
