What is canva? Canva is an app on mobile devices that allows you to create quick and easy eye-appealing posters or mementos. These posters look almost professionally made, because they kind of are. Canva allows you to choose from first a base on how you want your image to be sorted out. For example on the start page you can choose from a “Social Media style” to a “Pinterest Graphic” design.
Once you choose a design you enter a design studio, here you can find Layouts, Text, Background and Uploads. In layouts there's hundreds of Free bases you can edit and re design instead of having to make a completely new layout from scratch.
Once you choose a layout you can edit it or import Text Paragraph styles to more text bubbles, if you select typed text you can even change the text spacing and transparency of the text itself, there's a lot of designing you can do here.. You can also import photos from your camera roll to throw into your poster or design. You can also add in a semi transparent background that you can change the color of to give more texture and appearance to you design. That pretty much sums up canva, it's a very useful and easy app to use in my opinion, it has a really user friendly user interface, and can really come in and clutch when you need a fast poster or bulletin made that you've had so much time to make but sadly waited until last minute to make… like this blog post.
