Amazing Photo Design in 10 Minutes
Are you spending valuable time on photo design? I’ll walk you through amazing photo design in 10 minutes for your blog and social media.
Have you heard of the tool called Canva? I am not kidding when I say it is possible to create amazing photo design in 10 minutes. I started out with Canva as a desktop application and this past year Canva added an app for iPhone. What I create on my iPhone will also be available when I log into the desktop application. Which is perfect, because it keeps things simple.
New to Canva?
If you are new to Canva head over to www.canva.com and create an account. Another great thing, is they have a free and paid version! The free version has great features that will give you an idea of how to use the software.
With your shiny new account, it is time to start creating. Select a size or type of project that you would like to create. If you are needing something outside of the dimensions they have predetermined, you can select your specific size with the custom dimensions. A great example of where the custom dimensions come in very handy when a website theme have a specific size for the header or the slider.
