What is Canva and how to create an account?

Canva is a tool that allows anyone to create a variety of engaging content that gets shared using easy-to-use features and functionality. Canva makes design simple, easy, and fast.

All you have to do is choose one of 11 available templates or start from a custom-sized blank canvas. You then use the Layouts and Background tabs to get a rough idea of what you want to design.

Canva revolves entirely around intuitive controls such as drag-and-drop, so adding, removing, and editing elements on your canvas are, almost, a no-brainer.

Canva is free, easy, powerful, cloud-based, and collaborative. All excellent reasons to use too.
