Canva | How to create a simple social media post with Canva

Canva is a great tool to create simple social media posts. I’ve talked about it before in this post. Personally, I feel it is easy peasy compared to PhotoShop. It really is a simple tool to use once you get the hang of it. Although, my first creation did take a hot minute. These days I am able to whip out social media post in under five to ten minutes. I find that it takes me longer to figure out how to style my photo than to actually create the graphics in Cava.


The free tool for Canva is incredible, it has a ton of features that can turn a photo to a fun graphic to post on social media. All you need to do is put on your creative hat. If you are at all one that gets caught of in fonts and colors I suggest that you go in with an idea of what you would like to do. Otherwise, it can be hours later before you look at the time. Trust me on this one, I know better and still do it.

Let’s cover the basic steps for creating a simple social media post
