  • do you need to create social media images for work, school or for your personal life?

  • We'll show you how to use Can Va, an online graphic design tool to quickly create eye catching images for your social media posts.

  • Let's begin by going to Canada dot com.

  • First, you'll need to create a free account.

  • You have the option to sign up with your Google or Facebook account or set up in account.

  • Using your email address.

  • I'll go ahead and sign up with my Google account.

  • A window may appear asking you to sign up for a paid can VA account, but you can skip this and close the window by clicking here.

  • Can Va gives you many options for creating designs at my son's school?

  • We have a bake sale coming up, and I like to promote it on Facebook.

  • So let's choose Facebook.

  • Post.

  • A box may appear with instructions.

  • Feel free to read it or click the X to close it.

  • You can scroll through the templates or use the search bar to help narrow down your choices.

  • Since we'll be selling cupcakes at the bake sale, let's type in cupcakes and see what we come up with.

  • Think about which template would make your audience stop scrolling through Facebook to look at your post.

  • I'm searching for one that will appeal to kids and families.

  • Then just click the template to begin.

  • Now that we found a great template, let's make a few changes to customize it.

  • Since canvas templates are already attractive and easy to read, we won't change much.

  • I noticed that this one has a can of a watermark, which means it's a paid photo.

  • I bet we can find a free one to replace it.

  • Let's select this photo and click the trash icon at the top of the page to remove it.

  • At this point, you could choose to upload your own photo.

  • This is great if you have a business and want to showcase your products or location.

  • Or you can click photos to select one of canvas free stock images.

  • Let's type cupcakes in the search bar to look for a photo that will work for us.

  • Most of these options air free, but you'll notice that some of them are paid thes pink cupcakes look like a good option.

  • You can resize the photo by dragging the corner or side handles.

  • Depending on how you size it, it might also crop the image to fit.

  • You could make further adjustments by clicking crop on the menu and move the image around in the frame.

  • Then click done.

  • I noticed that the photo is now in front of the white rectangle.

  • I'd like to move it behind.

  • We can fix that by going up to position on the menu bar.

  • Clicking backward will move the photo behind the white rectangle.

  • This is looking good.

  • Now it's time to change the text.

  • Let's change the title first.

  • Well, just highlight the text and types of new text.

  • MM elementary doesn't quite fit now.

  • We could drag this handle to make the text box wider, but that's going to decrease the amount of margin around the text and make the design less appealing.

  • I would actually recommend that you keep the text boxes where they are and adjust the font size until the text fits in the menu bar.

  • You can choose from the preset options or feel free to type in any value.

  • Let's try 45.

  • That fits much better.

  • We'll go ahead and change the text above and below the title.

  • I want to let people know who's hosting the sale and why we're raising money.

  • We want to keep this pretty short while still giving people enough information.

  • I also want to let people know when the bake sale is.

  • We've got a bit of space below this text, so let's add it there.

  • After this, we won't add any more text, since many people will be reading this on their phones, and we want to make sure it will be easy to read at this point.

  • Take a minute to look at it to make sure that everything looks correct and that it's easy to read.

  • If you can have someone else check it, too.

  • When you're happy with your project, you can either publish it directly to the Social Media platform or you can download it.

  • I'm going to download it and then I can post it to Facebook later.

  • Next, you can choose your preferred file type.

  • A Ping file works for us, so we'll click download again.

  • Also, be aware that can VA may try again to get you to sign up for a paid account you can click.

  • Continue editing to return to your design later on.

  • If you'd like to edit your design or use it as a template to create a new one, you confined it by clicking all your designs.

  • Now that you know how to create a social media image in Canada, you're ready to start on your own project.

  • We encourage you to check out the homepage and experiment with creating different types of images G c F global, creating opportunities for a better life.
