So let’s start with why Canva in the first place. Canva is user-friendly and much more cost-effective than it’s competitors, like Adobe Photoshop, for example. I recommend purchasing Canva Pro so you can take advantage of its lesser-known or what I like to call hidden features.
- For starters, did you know Canva has a live presentation feature? Once you complete a project, click present, Canva Live, and start a new session. Just like that, your audience can comment, ask questions, and react while you’re presenting. This is a great tool for seminars, workshops, and team-building activities.
- Next, the color palette generator is awesome because once you upload a photo, Canva will automatically create a palette based on the shades in the picture.
- Moving on to the QR code generator. Let’s face it; nothing had a bigger comeback than the QR code. Simply click on the “more” section in your design’s dashboard, then paste a URL in the text field, and it will create a QR code for you to place into your design.
- Now let’s talk about creating links. Maybe you don’t like the look of a QR code but still, need to be able to redirect someone. Highlight the text or element you want to hold that URL, and Canva lets you insert a link just like you would in Microsoft Word or Google Docs.
- And finally, making GIFs to post on social media. You can use Giphy in Canva or choose from Canva’s animated backgrounds and elements library to create a unique GIF to share with your audience.
