Easily create amazing graphic designs with Canva

Canva – Amazingly simple graphic design for blogs, presentations, Facebook covers, flyers and so much more.:

OK, a week ago I posted about Lucidpress, the Microsoft Publisher replacement.  Well, I reread a post by Mr. O Trussel about Canva and have to give this one a shout out also.

It is as easy to use as Lucidpress, but I feel it's main goal is for web based graphics, much like the "infographics" you see.  It has templates for many things such as Twitter headers, Google+ Photos, Photo Collages, etc.

Here is an example I did in about 5 minutes:

Teachers and Coffee

You can easily download the images to be used however and wherever you wish.

The one thing that I do not like is that it is not integrated with GDrive like Lucidpress is.  At any rate, it is a very useful app that I imagine many of my students will enjoy using this year!!

Try it out and let me know what you think!!
