I really admire people that are can create incredible graphics for blogs and social media. I simply do not have a great artistic talent. I am a terrific critic after the fact, but like many people, I have not been too successful at accomplishing it without paying $$$ for it.
So what have I been missing all this time???
An EASY to use tool where I could drag, paste and upload!!! Where you can create an incredibly crisp and clean social media header with little effort.
The past few months, I have been using a tool that is incredibly easy and effective to create header graphics on Canva.com.
One of the issues with creating a graphic is getting the right resolution. I always found that when I tried to increase it to the appropriate size, the image would tend to get fuzzy. Have you experienced this??
With Canva.com, you can choose from a large selection of Twitter, Facebook and Google+ covers. You can use their designs, some for free and others only $1. I chose to create my own background from their large selection and I believe I did pay $1. It’s certainly a lot less than the average price of $150 to hire a graphic designer. Best of all, you can go back later and modify your design!! Canva saves your banner!!
Below is my own Twitter profile header. You can be the judge. What do you think?
There are so many other ways you can use Canva for your blog and social media which I will be addressing soon.
Hope this has been helpful. Would love for you to tweet me @dede_watson or leave your comments below if you have used Canva before or if this post spurs you to create a new profile graphic. Show me your amazing new design!!
