As part of my Thursday Reblog feature today, I am happy to share a post by fellow blogger and author, Jacqui Murray. I appreciate anyone who can share their experiences using Canva to create stunning graphics, and not just for blogging.
As a photographer, I have used PicMonkey for several years to post-edit my images. I love the program and use the premium version.
I have a Canva account, but admit to not using it as much. After reading Jacqui’s post, I felt I should give it another try. The featured image you see is one I created using Canva. The photo image was free from Unsplash and easy to upload. I really found it quite easy and intuitive. Yes it is similar to PicMonkey, but I believe for creating graphics, it’s a little simpler.
And just like that, I’m a graphic designer! My next plan is to create an eBook cover.

What programs do you prefer for creating graphics and for editing your images?
No one disagrees with the importance of the visual in communicating. The problem usually is creating it. Most writers are great at word-smithing, but not so good at matching colors, picking fonts and font sizes, and then laying everything out artistically. It’s much easier to leave the artistry for the artists.
