If you read my post up yesterday, The Easiest Way to Wow People With Your Blog Photos, I left you with a little bit of a cliffhanger.
Sorry about that, but I know people don't have time to read blogs all day (you'd rather be out selling!) So I try to make mine on the shorter side.
Anyway, today I want to show you how I made the photos you saw in my examples yesterday.
It's super easy.
Step 1: Go to Canva
When you first sign in (or log in) you have the option of choosing from a number of design size options.
Step 2: Pick a photo size
The great thing about Canva is they have already pre-sized every social media photo you could want under the sun.
So if you want a Facebook cover, a Twitter photo, a Google+ post or even a YouTube photo, they are all there and available.
Makes life much easier.
Once you have your size (I usually go for Twitter post since it works well for my own blog) click on it. A new window will open and you can start designing.
Step 3: Choose or upload a background photo
Here's the fun part.
They have a million pre-set backgrounds which are $1 a pop, or tons of free options as well, or you can just upload your own photo which is what I do most of the time.
Once you've got your photo uploaded you can play around with the size, transparency and even add filter options too.
Step 4: Choose your text or font
When your photo is set, click the Text option on the left sidebar and you will be hit with a ton of very cool texts, designs and fonts for your choosing.
Once you see one you like click it and it will automatically appear over your photo. From there you can adjust the size, and color.
Click on the font and you can write whatever you like, or even change the font if there is one you like better.
Anything you don't like, click on the little trash can and start over.
Step 5: Save and dowload
Once you're set on your image, click download and save as image.
There you have it, pretty easy and fun. I love how my images look and the options are endless!
Here are a few more I've made:
