What is Canva?

Australian company Canva.com is a website where you can create graphics and designs for web or print using a range of templates, graphics or your own uploaded images.

Images are created online, using Canva templates and you can upload your own images or use theirs for a fee. Non-Profits can apply for a free team account after submitting evidence of NP status.

How could I use Canva?

If you’re responsible to manage or contribute to various social media channels, Canva makes it really easy to create some of the social media headings and image posts that those sites need.

Facebook, Youtube, Twitter, Instagram, Tumblr header images……….

What I like is that Canva templates gets you halfway there when it comes to creating these images. You dont need to look up what the best dimensions are for each type of image, just start with the template.  It means your time can go more on creating than setting up.
