How I Create My Cover Photos- With Canva

As my blog has grown I've always wanted to improve my blog as much as possible. I make sure that my posts are at the best quality they can be and that I feel happy posting them. I'm saving up to improve my overall set up but I want to share with you today one of the things I use to create and take my cover photos. 

For my general photos I use my iPhone Se Camera whilst I am saving up for a professional camera. I take the pictures during the day when the lighting is at it's best and then edit it a little using the Apple photo filters. I then take the photos from this and use one for my cover photo. 

To create my cover photo I use Canva. It is an amazing website that allows you to create all different sized posts, you can use their own templates or use your own images and create one from complete scratch. It saves all your posts and even allows you the option to share them with everyone else on Canva. 

I tend to use my own images instead of their templates as it's more suited for my blog. One of their greatest features are their options of text. You can include modern trending styles or go for simple Times New Roman font if you really want. It allows you to include Titles, headings, subheadings with ease without having to worry. 

They feature the ability to really create your own images to suit your style. From being able to add stickers, shapes, lines, icons, and even charts. The possibility to create something that reflects your own style is endless.

My favourite part of this website is how much it has helped my blog come along, the cover photos I create are high quality posts that I am proud to have at the beginning of my blog. They help to make my blog look professional and get it to where I want it to be right now. 

The best perk of Canva is that it is free to join. A lot of websites similar to Canva normally charge a fee to join. With this website instead of paying a monthly membership pay you can just pay for what you use. They charge $1 for any premium photos you use, they offer an extensive range of free and pay for photos so there is enough to suit everyone. 

I am a really big fan of this website and I have endless support from the website whenever needed. I want to show off the more small scale websites like this that deserve to get the recognition for how easy and accessible their website is. I hope you have found this post useful and I can't wait to share with you more of my tips to creating the best quality blog posts I can.
