My Favorite New(er) Obsession: Canva

canvaI don’t know about you but I do a lot of photoshopping, cropping, screenshotting in my line of work. One newer online and for the most part free tool I’ve discovered in the past year or so is Canva. It just keeps getting better and better too!


Canva is an easy-to-use tool that helps you design gorgeous photos that are perfect for drawing attention on social media channels. I use them often when I want to spruce up one of my images for my hotels, restaurants, or Chicagoland attractions. It helps me make something feel fresh and different without wasting hours on photoshop getting it JUST right.
Their pre-created layouts are also amazing for inspiration and I love seeing the newer ones that are constantly added. Not only do they help me with social media images, but they’ve expanded to presentations, cards, invitations and more!

I’ll be honest, I’ve never paid $1 for their features yet, but I probably would, considering how cheap it is to use one of their professional images, instead of spending $30 on an istock photo.

Have you tried it? Any other photo tool recommendations?
