Create Graphics for Social Media using Canva
In 2021, creating graphics and design templates for your social platforms shouldn’t be cumbersome. Canva is a mobile app leading the charge towards expedient graphic design possibilities. Here are some of Canva’s most powerful features that you can utilize from the comfort of your phone:
Photos: Canva’s media library is extensive, allowing you to browse millions of free and premium stock images, videos, and music tracks. When efficiency is a priority, the browse feature enables you to build effective social posts in no time.
Elements: Canva is arguably a one-stop-shop. In addition to housing a robust media library, Canva provides illustrations, animated stickers, frames, shapes, grids, graphics, and charts to add to and incorporate into your design.
Customization: After you have selected and chosen your media and elements and created a preliminary design, rest assured that the perfectionist in you will be able to customize your visuals as needed. You can add effects, replace objects, modify styles, adjust your sizing, alignment, and spacing.
Publish: After creating your design, publish to your desired social media platform straight from Canva and wait for the digital applause from your followers.
