Create Your Own Images

Header_canvaI found another free online tool that you’ll want to check out: Canva. The tool is set up to allow you to easily create graphics for a variety of needs including: fliers, presentations, Facebook covers, Twitter. blog graphics, business cards, posters, and invitations.

With Canva, you search and drag elements create beautiful designs without ever leaving the Web. You can start with a custom layout or a blank page.

I previously posted about places where you can find free images for online use, and you can use those images in this tool. Canva also has hundreds of free elements and fonts and a library of more than 1 million premium images for $1.

Photo editing is also built-in. You can edit photos using preset filters and use editing tools like brightness, contrast, saturation, tint, blur, x-process and vignette.

Finally, the tool allows for collaboration. You can  share and edit designs with colleagues and clients.

Give it a try and let me know what you think!
