How to Create Any Graphic Design in Less Than 5 Minutes

 

Ever caught yourself clicking on an image just because it looks really good?

I’ve done that many times.

In this competitive online business world, it is really important to stand out with smart content and look pretty at the same time.

A good looking brand gets higher traffic than a brand that looks plain boring.

I want you to have a brand that stands out of the ordinary and makes you get noticed.

Today, I will teach you how to make a good looking design in less than 5 minutes.

Let me introduce you to canva!

This has seriously been a lifesaver for many that I know.

Canva allows you to create graphics with ease even if you don’t have any design experience.

Let me show you how it is done!

This is how Canva home page looks.

It gives you a variety of templates to choose from

STEP 1: Choose a template, here I will be choosing social media

After clicking on social media, the other tab opens up and you will be seeing a screen like this.

STEP 2: Select a layout

There are hundreds of layouts in canva, choose something that you like and are comfortable working with. I choose this gray one.

You will see that the image is watermarked and this is because it is a stock photo and needs to be purchased.

STEP 3: Choose a stock photo

Upload your free stock photos and use one of them in the place of the watermarked photo.

In order to do that, you will have to upload your free stock photos first.Q`You can do that by clicking on upload and select the images from your downloads folder.

Once they get uploaded, all you have to do is drag and drop the uploaded stock photo and it magically adjusts itself into the layout.

STEP 4: Change colors to match the image or choose your brand colors.

Now you can see that the white font is not visible.

You have to click on the text and change the text color which is on the top bar.

STEP 5: Adjust accordingly and type a quote or your blog post title.

Here I got the text on top and added in a quote.

STEP 6: Download

Now, click on the download button on the top right of the screen and you will be getting a drop down. Please choose the one that is suitable and click on the green download button.

YAAAYYY!!!

You have made your first graphic image in less than 5 minutes!
