For a short time that I have been using Canva for my blog graphic designs, I can say that I truly enjoy using this wonderful program. If you would notice, Almost all of the blog graphics I am using as cover images for my blog posts here in Bitlanders were created using Canva. That is how addicted I am to this program.  Isn't it amazing that even though we don't have a formal background in design, we could create awesome graphics that we can be used for our online work? And the good thing about it is we can have it for free. 

Aside from using it for my Bitlanders' blog posts, I am also using Canva for my own blogs. I couldn't be thankful enough for all the knowledge I am learning every day from working online. Yes, there are numerous skills and endless learnings that keep on pouring in as the passing of time. Continuous reading and searching for answers will definitely give us more than what we are hoping for. 

If you haven't started with Canva yet, I would suggest that you tried it out and start utilizing the program's amazing benefits.

Why I Love Canva?

One of the reasons why I am using Canva for my blog graphics is because it is easy to use and the designs are amazingly beautiful! When I discovered that vertical images would automatically become the cover photo for my Bitlanders' blog posts, I started experimenting with the different graphics to complement the topic. That was the time when I started learning the basic of using Canva. Since then, I fell in love with this design application. 

Almost all of my blog graphics are designed using Canva. I also make Facebook pages and calendar templates. Likewise, I recently created  Board Cover for my Pinterest account. I am currently in the process of building my Pinterest account.

But did you know that aside from creating blog graphics there are other stupendous things that we can do with Canva?

Here they are:

(4) Quotes

I love creating designs for quotes. I would usually use some of the ones I created for Facebook posting and others on my site. Here is a sample of the quotes that I made myself. I am planning to have those quotations printed and I could probably give those to some of my close friends.

Creating one is easy with Canva. You can choose from the different designs on the site or you can set your own size. You can use your own photo or you can use the templates from the site. 

 

(5) eBook

If you are planning to create an ebook and sell it on your blog, you can make it in Canva. You may choose between the 16x9 presentation and the 8.5x11 presentation which are perfect for mobile. You may also use magazine template. 

Creating an Ebook may be a daunting task but once you get used to it, it would be easier for you create the ebook that you want. 

But if you are creating a Kindle ebook, this may not work. 

Additionally, the free version of Canva allows only 30 pages. So if you doing a larger ebook, say 90 pages,  you will need to create 3 ebooks and upload it to a third party site in order to combine it into one ebook. However, on the paid version, you can have it for an unlimited number of pages.

Here is the amount you need to pay in case you decided to avail of the Canva for Work. Here is how much you will need to pay:

Conclusion:

Canva is a super tool for designing. We can use it for free but if we want to make use of other features such as creating a GIF or even video, we can opt to upgrade our account.
