What is Canva? And How Does It Do?

Canva is a cloud-based graphic design tool that allows users to create various designs using available templates and free samples. You can use Canva to produce social media graphics, presentations, posters, flyers, business cards, and many more.

Canva has a user-friendly UI that makes it easy to use. Unlike many graphic design software out there, Canva is not made for only graphic designers. Whether you’re a solopreneur, content creator, influencer, marketer, social media manager, etc., Canva will suit most (if not all) of your design needs.

The platform offers a large library of templates, images, graphics, and fonts that you can use to create any design. You can also upload an image from your device and use Canva’s design tools to add text, color, adjust the layout, and make other customizations.
