Canva proved how easy free image editing can be: no design skills required. If you love Canvas as much as I do, you’ll be thrilled that the site’s just gone social: now you’ve got your own profile page. You can view friends’ images in a stream, and can comment on them.
And if that’s not enough, I just noticed that there’s a square Instagram template too. That joins all the other templates — for everything from social media graphics to presentations.

Stuff to Know About Canva
Tip: Canva keeps your designs. This makes it easy to reuse a favorite design. If you’re logged in, you’ll see your designs, and you can reach them at any time by clicking the Your Designs link at the top of the page.
Scrolling through your designs can inspire you. If you’ve ever “lost” a design — you can’t remember the file name, and it’s lurking somewhere on your computer — you’ll bless this feature.
Another tip: clicking the Copy This Page icon makes it simple to create infographics and presentations. Add your pages, then save the file as a PDF. If you’ve created a presentation, you can upload it to Slideshare immediately.
Please Add Images to Your Blog Posts: It Makes Them Much Easier to Share
A plea to my favorite bloggers. If you’re not using images in your posts, please add just ONE image. It makes it much easier to share your latest posts on social media networks. Thank you. :-)
