Knowing how to use Canva is a game-changer, as you probably already know, Pinterest is a great tool for driving traffic to your blog.

With so many users and so many beautiful pins, it can be challenging to stand out.

How to use Canva

Canva is a very user-friendly tool for creating beautiful visuals and it is very easy to use even for inexperienced people.

I, personally, have no experience whatsoever in graphic design and honestly was never keen to learn Photoshop. Now I always create beautiful pins using Canva and I will show you the exact steps of how you can too.

First, you need to create an account. It’s easy and besides, it’s free. You can sign up here.

You can choose templates for any formats you might need, Pinterest, Instagram post, Facebook story, business card, blog banner, flyer, etc.

Canva has the standard sizes for each channel so that the full image will show when you post it.

Once you click on the Pinterest Graphic, a new tab opens where, on the left,  you can choose from various free templates.

They are categorized, making it extremely easy to find exactly what you are looking for. Click on the one you like and it will open automatically.
