Take Advantage of Canva’s Latest Updates by Jayne Corso

Hi, my name is Jayne Corso and I am the Community Manager for AEA. I have written a few Saturday posts about Canva, a great design tool for amateur designers! They recently updated their offerings, making it easier to creative graphics for social media, blogs, or websites. I wanted to share a few of these updates today. 

Hot Tip: Looped Presentations

Canva now has an auto play feature for presentations. This can be used in offices, during events, or even during a meeting. All you need to do is create a few images and simply select “Present” from the Publish drop-down, then select “Autoplay”. You can even adjust the seconds per slide time!

Hot Tip: Create Videos or GIFs

Videos are key for engaging your followers on social media. Now Canva allows you to create short animated videos with your designs. They offer 6 animation styles for you to choose from. To create a video, simply select “Present” from the Publish drop-down, and choose your desired transition style.

Hot Tip: Take Notes on Your Design

You can now add notes to your design. This is especially helpful if multiple team members are using your Canva account. You can collect instant feedback within the site on wording, format, or chosen photo. To use the notes feature, click on the small speech bubble above your design and start typing.

I look forward to seeing your designs.
