I find using Canva is a brilliant tool to create great visual content. I use this tool mainly to create my post cover images. The post cover image for this post is above. It was created using Canva.
According to Wikipedia, “Canva is a graphic design platform, used to create social media graphics, presentations, posters, documents and other visual content. The app includes templates for users to use. The platform is free to use and offers paid subscriptions like Canva Pro and Canva for Enterprise for additional functionality.”
I have been using the online version for some time now and find it great. I use Canva to create cover images. You see some examples in my Canva Images post. To see more of my cover images created using Canva go to my home page and page down through my post list. You notice that each post has a title and a very short excerpt as well as usually a cover image. Those cover images were usually created by me using Canva.
You may notice that I use a “general format” layout for my cover image and then edit each individual cover image as appropriate. This means that my cover images usually have the same look and feel. I do this for marketing purposes.
Using Canva, I usually duplicate the last cover image created and then edit the new cover accordingly.
I usually use the JPG format of the generated image rather than the PNG image. This is because the JPG format file “underneath the hood” is usually way smaller in byte size and therefore is faster to send over the internet to the end-users device. This means that my webpages load faster than if I used the PNG version of the generate images.
Word on the street is that the search engines will reward me for this consideration. 🙂 🙂
All things considered, I am happy to credit and cite them. They are the tool I use to create this type of content for my websites.
