1. Canva Graphic Design Masterclass Introduction: Hello and welcome to the Canada graphic design master glass. In this course, I'm going to show you how to create real-world design projects using the free web-based design application Canva. The causal. We split into many different sections, each covering different design projects. And we will also look at basic design skills in Canvas so that you can learn how to create things like animations, shadows, text, masking takes, affects, image effects and filters, topography and much more as well. Avar tutorials and causes only show you how to use the templates. So this course is going to be, rather than showing you how to turn a templates into your own design, I am going to show you how to design the templates from scratch in a completely blank file. By doing it this way, I will be able to show you how you can use Canva effectively, used different elements and skills within your designs and so on. So in this course we will create multiple real-world projects so that you can take your new skills and use them to create your own designs wherever that is, for your own personal projects, for freelance work, for clients or anything else. I will also show you how you can export your Canva designs to different formats so that they can be downloaded, printed, uploaded to social media, to a website or wherever necessary. Some of the designs that we will be creating in this course, we'll include YouTube channel banner designs, YouTube thumbnail designs, poster designs, logo designs, and so much more. So during the course now to begin learning, that's all for this video, and I will see you in the next one once again, thanks and goodbye. 2. How Will This Course Work?: So how will this course work? This course will be quite different to other Canva design courses because I am going to show you how to create designs from scratch instead of using the templates that are available, we will work through many different practical graphic design projects to ensure that you can create real-world designs. Some of the projects would include logo design, YouTube thumbnail design, business card design. But there will also be many more. We will also look at the graphic design process that will make any design work super-simple and save you lots of time when you are working on projects. No matter what you are designing, the process can be split into three generic steps. Step one, background. First, you need to set a background. This could be an image, color or even a Pattern. Step two elements. The second step is to add elements to your design. Things like shapes, icons and so on. And last but not least, we have text. The last step is to add your content. Usually this is text. The majority of designs wherever it's social posts, logos, banners, posters, and even business cards, all have text. Once you've completed every project, you should be confident to create high-quality designs for your own business or for a client. That's all for this video. Thank you for watching. I will see you in the next one once again, thanks and goodbye. 3. Getting Started With Canva: Getting started with Canvas. In this video, I will show you how to find Canva and how to start using it, as well as how to create an account and what to do when you first get to the website. So let's get straight into it. The first thing we want to do is go to Google or whatever search engine that you use and simply type in Canva. And then hit Enter. And then all you need to do here is click on to the first result to go to the Canvas website. And then you'll be greeted with the Canvas dashboard. This is where you can begin to create a design and also see other pages and resources within the Canvas website. So for example, you have the homepage, templates discover blurred pricing. And then if you scroll down, you will see many different templates that you can use to start creating a design. But we're going to skip that for now. And what you want to do is login if you already have an account, but if you don't, you want to click Sign Up. There are free signup options. You can either sign up with your Google account, sign up with your Facebook account, or sign up using your email address. We're going to choose the first option and sign up with an email address. So let's do that right now. You want to enter your name, email address, and password. And once you have done that, click, Get Started. You have now successfully created your account. Once you have signed into your account for the first time, you'll get a pop-up which basically asks you what you'll be using Canva for so that they can recommend you different designs and templates that will be relevant to you. So select the option that is most relevant to you. So if you are a teacher, select that. If you are a student, select that if you're using Canvas as an individual, select personal. If you're a small business, select small business, large company, select that. And finally, if you are a non-profit or a charity, you want to select that. We are a small business as y, I am going to select that right now. And then you will get the option to sign up for Canva probe. I highly recommend it, especially the free trial. But if you don't want to click, maybe later at the top right. And now you'll be able to start creating your very first design. So this means your account is created and you can start using Canvas for the first time. You could either start typing and you'll see different templates pop up. So if I type Facebook, we will get different Facebook options down here. So we have Facebook ads, Facebook app ads, Facebook covers, and so on. Many different options. But if you want to get rid of this little pop up and you want to go straight to your dashboard or look at your account, simply refresh the page. And you will now be in your dashboard within your Canvas account. That is all for this video, you have successfully found the Canva website and signed up for a Canvas account. We will see you in the next one. Once again, thanks and goodbye. 4. Canva Dashboard: Hello and welcome back. In this video, I'm going to show you the Canva dashboard so that you know your way around the website and how to begin to create some amazing designs. So let's dive straight into it. Once you are logged in, this is the page you will see. I like to call it your personal dashboard. The dashboard has a range of sections, menus and different buttons. And we will try to have a look at the mall. So let's start from the top. At the top here we have four different buttons, starting with home. Of course, this button just takes you back home to your dashboard. Next, we have templates. By hovering over this button, you will see all of the different templates split into different categories. So for example, if you want to find a template for a newsletter, you need to head over to marketing and then go down to Newsletter. Next we have features. Here we have things like photos, icons, printable products, apps, and then some extras as well. So the stock photos are split into different categories, and then the icons are split into different categories. And then the printable products, for example, business cards, postcards, invitations, and so on, are all accessible from here as well. And then we have apps, which are apps you can connect to your Canvas account. And then finally, you can explore additional features which include graphs, charts, and also photo editing. The last item on the menu is called Learn, where you can find different learning resources which are available on Canvas. So we have getting started with Canvas, designing, social media marketing, graphic design basics, branding your business, and then some more things as well. So there's design school courses, tutorials, and then their blog as well. So this is a great section to help you find learning resources that will teach you how to use Canvas more efficiently if you are using the free version of Canvas or you may also see a menu item called Pricing, which will basically take you to the pricing page which is available for you if you want to upgrade to Canva pro. But because I already have kind of a pro, I do not see the pricing page here. Then further over to the right, we have some more buttons. We have a question mark which will take you to the Help Center. A little settings icon, which will take you to your account settings. A creates a design button, which is another way for you to start creating a design on Canva. And then last but not least, you have your logo, which will take you to some more Account Settings. Next, let's take a look at the left of your screen. Over here we have even more menu items. First, we have recommended for you, this is your main dashboard page, which you can use to search for your own designs or templates or anything else within Canva. And then below that you have some design types. So first you have recommended designs. So these are mainly designs which are frequently used on your account. So they will recommend them to you because they think you might want to create more of these types of designs. And then after that you have different design types split into categories. So social media, where things like Instagram posts and so on, events, marketing documents, prints, video, school personnel, and so on. And then below that you have your own designs which are sorted by most recently accessed. And then we have easy to access templates for all different design types from here on. So we have templates for Instagram posts, Facebook posts, logos, posters, animated posts, Facebook covers, documents, YouTube, thumbnails, Instagram stories, and so, so, so many more. On the next page you have all your designs. Here. You can see all of the designs you have created in Canva. Once again, these are sorted by most recently accessed. So the design that you have edited or opened most recently will appear at the top. Next we have brand kit. It is important to note that this is only available if you have Canva pro, but using the brand kits, you can upload your logo, your color palette. You can select your main brand fonts so they are easy to access within your designs. And then you can also upload more fonts if they are not already available within Canva. The next item on the menu is content planner. Once again, this is only available within Canada Pro, but this is an amazing tool which allows you to plan and schedule content to your social media profiles. Next we have creates a team. On this page you can't invite team members to edit and access your designs within Canva. This is great if you run a business and you have a graphic design or social media team. So using this feature, your design team can all access your designs within Canva so they can make edits and so on. So this is absolutely perfect for businesses. Next we have a page called Ollie or photos. Hey, you can view or create folders within Canva. This allows you to sort and organize all of your designs. And then finally we have trash. If you delete any of your designs within Canva, this is where they will go. Here you can view the designs that you have deleted from your Canvas account, and then you can either restore them or permanently delete them. So that is pretty much everything within your kind of a dashboard. If you have any questions, do not hesitate to ask. So that is all for this video. I hope you enjoyed it. I hope you learned a lot and I will see you in the next one once again, thanks and goodbye. 5. Canva Free vs Paid: Hello and welcome back. In this video we are going to be looking at the differences between the fury and pro Canva plans. So let's get straight into it. Here. As you can see, I'm on the pricing page for Canva. And I'm simply going to be showing you the main differences between the three and pro Canva plans. And we also have an enterprise plan here, but we are not going to be taking a look at that in this video because that is for larger companies who have many, many employees. As you can see, we have the free plan on the left and then the Pro plan just to the right. And then below that we have all of the different features which are included with each of those plans. So if we start with the top writes here, we can see first of all, 8 thousand free templates in the free plan, there were over 100 design types, including social media posts, presentations, letters, and more. And then we also have hundreds of thousands of free photos and graphics comparing it to the Pro plan, it has everything that is in the free plan plus the brand kit. The option to resize your designs in one click over 60 thousand templates, over 60 million stock images, photos, videos, and graphics, the ability to upload your own fonts and logos. And finally, there are also custom templates. So there are quite a few more features in the Pro Plan, but I still say the free plan is absolutely incredible considering you are paying nothing. So where if we scroll down some more just here, we have designed and publishing. You can have a look at this on your own if you want. We can see that both of them have many features here. There are only a couple of differences. We have the premium stock image library, which is only available in the pre-plan. The one-click image design, once again, only in the pipeline. Custom templates and uploading your own fonts and logos, that's only in the plan. And then you can also download designs with a transparent background and export designs as animated gifs or mp4 videos. But to have the free plan, you can export to PDF, JPEG, and PNG as well. Next, we have collaboration. In this collaboration section, all of the features available in both the Free and plans. So that is awesome. So if we scroll down some more, we have brand management. And this is where the changes start to happen. So the brand kit is only available within the Pro plan. However, that is the only difference because these features are only available in the enterprise plan. If we scroll down some more cloud storage, you will get one gigabyte with the free plan and 100 with the Pro Plan. And then with the enterprise plan you have unlimited, which is pretty crazy. And then we have the free plan. You can only create two folders. And with the Pro plan, you can create as many as you want. So that is pretty much everything. Or we have left is security and support. First, support, you have self-serve support in the free plan and 24-7 support in the Pro plan. Both have two-factor authentication to keep your account secure, and neither the free or pre-plan has single sign-on. So that means both of them are the same in that aspect. So they are all of the differences between the three and powerplants on Canva. Do I think you should get the Pro plan if you can afford it. I would say definitely, but the free plan is very good. And considering your spending no money for a graphic design told, It is absolutely fantastic. So I definitely recommend signing up for the free plan if you cannot afford the Pro plan. Because it is a super powerful graphic design tool to be able to use, especially because you can use it within the web browser or on the mobile app. And you don't actually have to install it as an application like Photoshop. So that is a huge benefit. So yes, that is the differences between the free and PR plans on Canva. I hope that this video has been beneficial to you in some way or another. I will see you in the next one. Once again, thanks and goodbye. 6. Design Inspiration: Hello and welcome back. In this video, I'm going to be showing you some amazing ways for you to get inspiration for your graphic design projects. So let's get straight into it. First, I am going to be showing you a great website called design inspiration, which you can use to find other people's designs, which can give you a boost of inspiration. So here we have the website or you need to do is simply make a search. So if I search for logo, we can see loads of different logo designs. So these can give you inspiration if you are trying to design a logo of your own. So if you just scroll through these designs, it will give you ideas and inspiration for your own logo designs. So let's make a couple more searches just to show how amazing this website is. So this time I will search for a poster. And here you will see inspiration for loads of poster designs. So if you need to design a poster, these will inspire you to design your own poster. And for this final search, I will search for business card. So now we can look at design inspiration for business cards. There are absolutely tons of business card designs here. So you will definitely find inspiration using the design inspiration website. Next, I will show you some of the designs that I have created using Canva. So let's go to Canada and I'll go to my designs. And now let's have a look at some designs I have created using Canva. So here we have some thumbnails I have created using Canva. It's quite a nice, simple design, but it works quite well. Using my brand colors and image to represent what the video we'll be covering. And then of course, a title as well. It's very simple, but also looks great and is enticing to click onto. Next, we can have a look at a book cover for the ultimate SEO Guide which I designed using Canva as well. So that is just here. And as you can see, it's quite a simple book cover, but it looks great. It's easy to understand, you know what it's going to be about. And I created it completely with Canva. It didn't really take very long and it's also very appealing to look at. So I hope that looking at some designs I have created with Canvas has inspired you as well. If it has, go to the Canva websites and start designing right now, because having inspiration is one of the most important things when it comes to graphic design. That's all for this video. I hope you enjoyed it and I'll see you in the next one. Once again, thanks and goodbye. 7. Exporting Your Designs: Hello and welcome back. In this video, I am going to show you how to export designs that you have created using Canva. So let's go straight into it. The first thing that I am going to do is open a design that we want to export. So I'm going to open this one right here. And then we simply want to export the file. So because this is going to be used as a thumbnail, we are going to export this design as a PNG. So first you need to look at the page number for your design. So minds page one, I will keep that in mind. And then you want to head over to the Download button on the top right. And then select the file type that you want to download your design as. So I am going to select PNG. But there are also many other options including JPEG or PDF, standard, PDF, print, MP4 video, and also give. So I'll select P and G. So if you have the pro Canva plan, you can download your design with a transparent background. This is great for logos. So if you want to do that, take this first option here, but I didn't want to. And then the second option allows you to compress your file, which will make it take up less storage, but it would also export at a lower quantity. So we are not going to do that. And then simply select the page for the design you are downloading. Like I said earlier, we are downloading the design from page one. Then click Done. And then all you need to do from here is click Download. Now what you want to do is name your file and also choose where you're going to save your file to. And once you're happy with your file name and also the location that you are downloading your design TO. Simply click save. And you have now successfully exported your design from Canva. So let's open it. And this is the design that we have exported. So that's it. That is how you export your designs from Canva. That is all for this video. I hope you enjoyed it and I hope you learnt something new. I will see you in the next one once again, thanks and goodbye. 8. Animations: Hello and welcome back. In this video, we're going to talk about animations, more specifically, animations within Canvas. It is important to note that if you want to create animations in Canvas, you will need to have a Pro account. Now that we've got the basics out of the way, let's have a look at the different animations you can create in Canada. And it's also exports and animated design as an MP4 file. So let's get straight into it. First, I'm going to open a random project that I have created within Canvas so that we can have a look at the different animation options. So I'm going to go through my projects at the bottom just here. And I think I'm going to select this one just a which I have titled thumbnails. So then once you have opened or created a design that you want to animate using Canva. Simply go towards the top of your screen and click onto the animate button, which you can see just here. You will now be able to see all of the different animation options to the left of your screen. So what we are going to do is simply have a look at the different animation options. So we have block, fade, pan, rise, tumble, stump, baseline, pop, neon, and scrapbook. I think we're just going to have a look at all of them and then I will export the one I like the most. So let's start with blog. It's quite a nice, clean looking animation. Next we have finite. Everything fades in quite nicely with that one. And then we have PAD, everything pans in from the left to the right, as you can see. And then we have rise. Every element rises up from the bottom. Symbol, all of the elements randomly tumbling. Stump. That's quite a nice one. I do like that a lot. That is definitely my favorite so far. And then we have a baseline and have a quite simple one that looks good. Pop every element just pops in a nice one as well. Neon. That one's cold, but it doesn't really suit this design. And then finally we have scrapbook. That's also a very cool one. I like that a lot. So I think I'm going to choose stump. And then to download it, you want to go to the top right and click download. And then make sure you select MP4. And then select the design that you want to download. Click Done, and then click Download. And now you're animated design within Canva who download to your computer. It would take a bit longer than normal designs to download because of course, it is an MP4 and it's also an animated file. But don't worry, it does not take too long. And then choose where on your computer you want to save the file to. And also name your file and then click Save. So yeah, that is that for the video. I hope it helped you and hope it was easy to follow along with. I will see you in the next one. Once again, thanks and goodbye. 9. Typography: Welcome back. So in this video we're going to be looking at typography in Canva. So we'll be creating text, customizing text using different text layouts and so on. So let's dive straight into it. First of all, I'm going to create a completely blank file, which we can use to test different design skills with. So I'm gonna click create a design up here. And then I'm going to go to custom dimensions. And then I'm going to put in at 1920 by 1080. There we go. And of course we want it to be in pixels. And then I'll click create new design. So because we're going to be looking at typography, we want to create some text. So in order to do that, I will click on the Text tab down here. And as you can see, we have many different options for adding text. So we can add some basic texts, a heading, subheading or body text. Or we can look below this and we can add a font combination. So these are texts layouts that have been pre-made for us. So there were tons to choose from. But to start with, we're going to be adding a basic heading. Then I'm just going to write some random text. And what I'm going to do is show you how you can customize this text. So first of all, you can change the fonts by selecting the text and then clicking on the Font up here. And then you can select any font that you want to use. As you can see, it is as easy as that. Simply select a font and it will update on your design. Next, we will customize the text size. So you want to click onto this number up here. And you can select any text size that you want to use. Or alternatively, you can type in your text size in the box up here. So if I want to type in one, It's not really visible. But as you can see, the text down here is one pixel bar. I will change that to 250. And now it is much more visible. In order to change the color of your text, you want to click on this icon up here, and then you can select any color. So we have new color up here where you can choose any color for my color palette. Document colors. So these are colors which are audio in your design. Below that, I have my own brand colors for my grandkids. You may not have this as it is only available in pro accounts. And then finally underneath that we have a set of default colors. So let's have a look at this green right here. There we go. Next we have some more simple text customization options. So by clicking this B up here, you can make it bold. By clicking this i, Hey, you can make your text italic. And then by clicking on this view up, hey, you can underline your text. After that, you can make all of your text uppercase or lowercase by clicking on these a's just here. Next we have the text alignment settings. So simply click here until you have the alignment that you want to use. So right now my text is aligned to the right. After that you can put your text into a list. So we have a bullet point list. And then if you click it again, you can have a numbered list. But I don't want my text to be an A-list. So I'll click it one more time and the list is gone. And then we have text spacing. So first we can adjust the letter spacing. I will leave it at 200. And then if we have multiple lines of text, I will just make it so that we do. We can also change the line heights as well as you can see. And then you can also anchor the textbox by using these three options here. So that is the basics of typography within Canva. I will just show you how these font combinations work. So let's say this one here, for example, select it. And then you simply need to click on to the text that you want to edit. So for example, I'll click on the text at the bottom. And then just like before you can change the font, the colors, make it italic, underline it change the text size, and so on. And then to change the actual text which is in the font combination. Simply select it and write something different. If a word doesn't fit in and you need more space, simply make the box bigger like so. And then you can put the text wherever you want it to be. So that is basic typography within Canva. I hope you enjoyed the video and I hope that you learned something new. I will see you in the next one once again, thanks and goodbye. 10. Shadows: Welcome back. So in this video, I'm gonna show you how to add shadows to text and images within Canvas. So let's get straight into it. First of all, I'm going to show you how to add shadows to your text in Canva. So I'm going to remove all of the texts that we have here already. So I'll delete this element and this one as well. And then I'm gonna go to text on the left. And now I'm going to add some completely new text. And I'm just going to put some random text in here. And what I'm going to do now is change the color of this text. So I'll make it blue. And now we will add a shadow to this particular text element. So I'll click on to the text and then I'll right-click it and copy. And now I'm going to right-click into the blank space and click Paste. Now I'm gonna change the color of this second Text Layer. I'll try this dark color over here. And I'm also going to decrease the transparency. I'll try about 50. Now why I am going to do is move this text element and put it just behind the original. But it needs to be showing a little bit. So I use the arrow keys in order to be more precise. I think this looks good about here. And now I need to position the second text element backward. And there we go. We now have a nice shadow on our text. So now I recommend grouping your text layers. So select them both and then click group up here. And now you can easily move your text around as it is in one group with your two text layers, creating a nice shadow effect. So that is how you add shadow to text in Canada. Now I will show you how to add a shadow to an image in Canva. So I'll just move this text out of the way first of all, and then I'll go to photos. And we're going to get a photo and bring it into our design. Let's try this one just here. I'm gonna make it a bit smaller. Here is okay. And once again, we're going to do it pretty much the same way as the text. So I'm going to right-click it and click Copy. And then I'm gonna paste it in again. And now what we're going to do with this second image is click on to adjust up here. And I'm going to bring the brightness up. I'll try about 20. I'm gonna bring the blow up. Let's say about 40. And I'm also going to bring the contrast up a bit as well. I'll put those 20 as well. There we go. I'm gonna close this panel on the left so that we have more space. And now once again, I'm going to put this image over the top of the original. And I'm going to use the arrow keys to precisely put it over. And we want a little bit of space like so. So now once again, we're going to click on to the second image and go to position and then backward. And then as you can see, we have a nice shadow behind I image. Now once again, we can actually group with the elements. So to do that, we need to select both of the elements and then click group up here. So now we can easily move around our image that has a nice shadow effect. So as you can see, the nice shadow behind it, the image just here. Now in order to choose where you have the shadow reflecting, or you need to do is move the second image. So I'll give you a quick example. If I click onto this image and ungroup them, I now want to select only one of the images. So I'll select this one here. And I'll place the image here. And now what we're going to do is select the second image, the one that we use for creating the shadow. And I'm just gonna move over here. And I want to do is put to the shadow on the top left of the original image. We simply need to move the background image to the top left, just like saga. So now as you can see, the shadow is at the top left. I do recommend grouping them whenever you create a shadow effect so that you can move them around easily. And there you go, it is as easy as that. So that is how you create shadow effects on images and text elements within a Canva design. That is all for this video. I hope you enjoyed it and I hope you learned something new. I will see you in the next one once again, thanks and goodbye. 11. Text Masking: Welcome back. In this video, I'm going to show you how to do text masking in Canva. Now this is an awesome skill to have because it allows you to create some pretty amazing designs. So let's get straight into it. First of all, I'm going to delete what I have here already. And now I'm going to open the Elements tab on the left over here. And then from the Elements tab, I want to click on two frames down here. Now I'm going to scroll down until I find the letters and numbers frames. Here we go. So we have all of the letters here, and then we have the numbers down here as well. So I'm going to add some of these letters to my design. I'll just do abc. And then I would line them up. So I'll go a and then B, and then C. And I might as well send to them as well. So now we are going to find an image that we want to add. So from here I'll click on two photos on the left. And we want to find a nice photo that we can use. So I'm going to type in skyline. There's one down here is quite nice. We're going to do is simply drag this photo into each of these elements. So a, b, and then c. And there we go. That is the first part done. Now I'm going to close this panel and one at a time, I'm going to double-click onto each of these letters. I'll start with a. And I'm going to slide the image over so that the left side of the image is masked onto the a. And then I hit Enter. Now I'll double-click on to the B. And we want the center of the image. And it seems to be already pretty much the center. So I'm gonna click Enter straight away because I'm already happy with it. And now I'll double-click onto the sea. And we want it to be the right of the image. And then I'll hit enter. And there we go. So we have successfully masked artillery letters. The image is also laid out nicely across the three letters because of how we just positioned it. So that is how you mask text using Canva. Now there is actually another pretty awesome thing that we can do using this technique. So what I'm going to do now is click onto videos down here. And rather than masking and image onto this text, I'm actually going to mask a video. So I'll go for this one just here. And I will drag it into each of these elements. And once again, if you double-click on to one of the letters, you can align it to be where you want it to be. So I'll put that one as the left side. And I'll put this one as pretty much the left of the center. And for the C, I'll put it all the way to the right. There we go. So now to make this look even color, I'm going to add a background to this design. And I think I'll use this background image just here, the white brick wall. And I'm also going to slightly adjust this background image. I'm going to add a slight blur. And I'm also going to decrease the brightness. So now to see how the design loads with the video masked into the text elements, I'm going to click this Play button up here. And as you can see, it looks rather Cole Indeed. So that is how you mask videos and images onto text elements. In Canada. I hope that you enjoyed this video and I hope that you learned something new. I will see you in the next one once again, thanks and goodbye. 12. Image Filters & Effects: Welcome back. In this video, I'm going to show you how to use image filters and effects. So let's get straight into it. First of all, I'm going to delete everything that I have in my project here. And then I'm going to do is simply add an image to this project. So I'm just going to add the very first image that is here. And I will start by showing you some image effects. So I'll collapse this menu on the left over here. And you want to select your image and then click onto effects at the top just here. Now you will see all of the different effects that are available for you to apply to your image. So just briefly scroll through them so you can see what there are. As you can see, there are rows and rows and rows of different effects. So at the top we have Duo tone, which pretty much changes the color of your image. And then as you scroll down, you can see some more effects as well. I recommend just trying them out to see which ones you are going to like. And as well as having these pre-made affects that you can just apply to your image. You can also customize the effects. So now that I have this one selected, if I click on this little icon here, I have all of these different options to customize this particular effect. So I'll just make some random changes. And as you can see, every single change that I make on the left also changes the image over here. So these are the effects on Canva. Now we will take a look at the image filters. So just like we collect affects our pair. Instead we are now going to click onto filter. And as you can see, we have all of these different filter options. So to have a look at these filters, I'm going to add a new photo. And I will delete this other one. And let's just try out some of these different filters. So we have summer, you can once again customize each filter just like you could with the effects. Let's have a look at solar. That's quite a nice one. Edge. That's an interesting one. And finally, I will have a look at the drama. There we go. So you can have a look at these filters in your own time and find the one that you like the most, there will quite cool.

So once you have selected your text element, or you need to do is click effects are the top just here. And then you will see all of the different effects that are available to you. So we have shadow, left, hollow, splice, eco, good h, neon. And finally we have curve, as well as having these texts effects available for you to use. You can also customize them. So for example, if I click on to splice, I can customize the thickness, the offset, the direction. And finally, I can also customize the color. I must say I've made a pretty cool effect right here. This does look pretty cool indeed. So there we go. That is how you use affects in Canva. It is a really awesome feature that is available. And I highly recommend trying out these text effects for yourself. So that is all for this video. I hope you enjoyed it and I hope you learned something new.

Position, Transparency, Lock, Duplicate: Hello and welcome back. In this video, I will show you how to change the position and transparency for elements in your Canva projects. And as well as that, I will show you how to lock and duplicate elements in your projects as well. So let's get straight into it. So first, I will show you how to change the position of elements in your Canva project. So if I put this text over this image, as you can see, the text will appear at the top if I want to re-position it so that the image is above the text, I can either click onto the image, go to position and forward. Or I could've clicked onto the text, go into position and then click onto backward. So now I will show you how to do it the other way around. So I'll click on to the image and I'll go to position. And because I want the text in front of the image, I will click backward. So now the image will go to the back of the project. If you have even more elements in your project, let's say, for example, three different elements. I'll add this image as well. And I will close this side panel. Now we cannot see the image of the books. So in order to make it visible again, I'm going to click on to this new image. And I'm going to go to position. And now I'll click backward again. So as you can see, this position toll is absolutely k If you have multiple elements in your design. Now I will show you how to change the transparency for elements in your design on a Canva project. So for example, I'll click onto this image here and add them. I mean, you cannot see anything that is behind this particular image. So if I now click on today's habitual icon up here, I can change the transparency. So at the moment it is 100. If I now change it to 50. We can now see the skyline image through the image of the books because we have lowered the transparency for this image. So if I bring it down here, as you can see, we can look straight through this image. So that is how you can change the transparency for elements in your project. Now I will show you how to log different elements. So say for example, I want to select the text element here and also the image of the books. I will try and click and drag to select both of them. But instead, I will just move this image here in order to make it so that we can select both of these elements without moving this image. What we want to do is select this image and then click onto this padlock up here. Now if I try and select this text element here, and the picture of the books just here. At the same time. The image in the background that we have just locked will no longer interfere. So that is how you lock elements in your projects in Canvas. If you want to unlock it again, you simply need to click onto it and then click the padlock again. Now we can move it around however we want it to be. So that is another handy feature. Finally, I'm going to show you how to duplicate your elements. So I'll click onto this text element here. And in order to duplicate it, I just want to click on this icon up here. Now as you can see, this text elements has been duplicated a load of times. So there we go. That is all for this video. You should now know how to reposition elements, change the transparency for your elements, and also lock and duplicates your elements as well.

At the top, you can also search for a particular app. So for example, if I put in an a, we will start to see results that are relevant to our search. Now of course, just playing an a isn't really going to give you a particular app. So that isn't really relevant, but you get the point of it. So I'm just going to show you how easy it is to install one of these apps. So what I'm going to do is click onto the emoji up down here. And then in order for me to use this app, I just need to click use in a design and I will create a new design. So let's say it's going to be a Facebook post. He would go.

I am now going to show you how to share access to your designs in Canvas. So let's get straight into it. First of all, I'm going to open a project that I want to share the access to. So for this example, I will open this project right here. And then in order to share access to this project, I went to click share at the top, just here. And from here we have two different options. We can either type with the email address for the person that we want to share access to in this box up here. Or we can create a link that they can click onto, which will give them access to the project. So down here we can create a link. And this link, we have three different options. We can make it so that the link gives them access to the project or gives them access to use the project as a template. Or finally, we can only give them access to view the design. Of course, the one you select depends on who you are showing the project. Two, and what you actually want them to do with it. So this bit is up to you. So that is how you share access to one of your projects on your Canvas account. That's all for this video. I hope it was helpful and I'll see you in the next one. Thanks and goodbye. 20. Logo Design Project: In this video, we're going to be using Canva to design a logo. So let's get straight into it. The first thing you need to do is create a new logo project. So we're going to go to logo, click on it, and then create our logo. So we have a client brief for the logo that we are going to be designing. The brand name for the logo that we are designing is book watcher. So we are going to be designing a logo for a book company. So first we are going to pick out a relevant template. And then once we have chosen a template, we're going to design the logo from scratch using some ideas from the template. So let's scroll through these templates to find one which will be relevant for our logo. Patch. Logo could look good, so we will keep those ones in mind. And Education logo could also look good. So we may come back to those. And now we've gone through all of the different categories. So we can now see all of the logo templates. We simply need to find one that will stand out. Here we go. I think this one here looks quite nice. So let's click on to this. So we have an icon to the left, the brand name in the center, and a tagline just below it. So we will create a new page, delete the background, and then we are going to design a logo for book watcher. With this template in mind, we have the font, the layout, and we also need to remember that there is an icon to the left. We don't need to use that specific icon. I'm already thinking that a book icon would look a lot better. So what we need to do first is the background. So we will close these templates by clicking this little button here to hide them. And then we're going to go to background. And then we can select a color over an image for our background. Of course, as this is for a logo, we do not want to select an image. So we're going to look at the colors up here at the top. And we want to find one that will look nice. So we could go for a dark color or light colour. It is completely up to you. I think this blue hair looks quite nice. So here we go. We have our background already. So now that we have a background, we want to add the text. So we are going to go over here and click on to text. And then go to add a heading and then type in our brand name. The brand we are creating a logo for is book, which are and I'm not sure on the color for the text just yet, but we definitely don't want black. So we're going to get rid of that and make it white. However, we can't change it later on. So now we will add the tagline. So we'll go to text again and add a sub heading. And the tagline is forever reading books. And I'll select it and move it to below the logo. Here is a right for now. And we'll also change the color to white for this as well, just so that it fits in together. So we can still change the colors and the fonts later on, but we will leave it like this for now. The next thing that we will do is add the icon to our design. If we go back to the templates, as you can see, there's an icon to the left of the main logo text. So I think we're going to add a book icon. So to add an icon to your design CO2 elements, and then simply search for the icon that you want to use. So I am going to search for a book and then I'll hit enter. Okay, so let's see what we have here. I quite like this one down here. So I will click on today's and I'll make this one whites as well. And then I'll make it a bit smaller. This looks good. And our center it. And I'll put it just here. And it doesn't really fit in very well. So what we're going to do is resize everything, make it all a bit bigger, makes sure is centered into the design. Like so. And then we can move it over to the left a little more. That's good. Okay, so here we go. This is what we have created so far. I think that realistically what we need to do now is change the font because these two fonts don't really see each other at all. So we will select the main logo text and then click on to the current font, which will allow us to pick any font that we want to use. Instead, there are loads and loads of different font options. You just need to find the one which will work best for your brand. I personally like to go through them until I find the one which I think will look good for my particular project. Usually when you find a good one, it will stick out and you will instantly know that it is the one you want. So just keep going through them until you find the perfect font. I quite like this one to be honest, code anonymous pro, but I think that it might look better bout. So let's make it bold by clicking on the icon up here. That's great. I think that that looks really good. So now we need to choose a font for the tagline. I think that it will look good with the same font. I just want to make this one boat. So I will select the font here. And we can make the text a bit smaller so that it fits in better. Next to the font, we can edit the text size. So I will change the text size to 18. But I think that is still needs to be a bit smaller. So let's try 16 now. And there we go. That looks absolutely fantastic. So now what you need to do is reposition it into that looks good. So I'm gonna move it to the left. Like so. Just make sure that it is lined up properly. I quite like this to be honest, but I want it to be the same width as the main text. So I'm going to select it again. And then I'll click onto spacing up here. And then I am going to slightly increase the letter spacing. There we go. That could be good. So then we will realign it. So there we go, the text is sorted. Now we're going to move the icon a bit more. Just make sure that it's centered. Move it all in together. Think it should go up a little bit more. There we go, that looks nice. And then select everything and make it a bit bigger. And make sure that it's centered once again. And here we go. I think this looks great now. So we have a few different elements. We have the main text, and then we have the subheading or the tagline. And then on the left of the design we have the book icon. I think this looks absolutely fantastic. So once you have finished designing your logo, the last thing you need to do is export it. So you want to go to download other top-right. Select the page that you want to export. And then if you have a program that accounts, you have a few more options. First, you can change the size of your design. The second option allows you to export your design with a transparent background. Bear in mind that this only works if you export as a PNG. And the third and final option allows you to compress the file, which it lowers the quality, but it also makes it take up less storage space. However, I'm going to leave it as. And then finally I'll click download and then choose where you want to download your photo and their name, your file. I'm going to leave it as it is. And then click Save. And then we go, we have now successfully exported our logo design. So let's click on this to open up. So this is what we have just created. I think it looks absolutely wonderful. So now you should know how to design and download a logo within Canva. That is all for this video. I hope you enjoyed it. I hope you learned something new and I will see you in the next one once again, thanks and goodbye. 21. Poster Design Project: Hello and welcome back. In this video, we're going to be using Canvas to design a poster. So of course, the very first step is exactly the same. No matter what we will be designing. We simply need to create a project. So we need to look for a postdoc project type. So you can either search for a postdoc in the search box at the top, or alternatively, you could click on marketing in this little menu here. And then go over to poster. And we'll click on two post-docs to begin the process of creating our poster. So on the left we have all of the different postdoc templates. And then over on the right we have a blank canvas, which is where we'll be creating our design. The very first thing you can do is name your designed by clicking on this box at the top, just here. And then typing in whatever you want to name your design. Although it is not necessary. Once you've named your design, you just want to pick out a template. So we will go through them now and see which ones look good. So we have many different categories. Back to business events, advertising, school, photos, quotes, and so on. I think we'll have a look at the advertising category. So I'll click View on and see what we have here. I quite like this one here. This is quite a nice style. But we can also see what else there is. We do not have the pick of the very first one. We find. This one here is quite nice as well. And also this one. So there are many different great templates available. This one's very nice as well. I think this may be the one that we are going to use. So if you want to, you can simply edit a template. This is quite simple. You just need to click on to any of the elements within your design. And then you can simply change the text by selecting it and typing in whatever you wanted to type. Or you could change the background image by going to photos on the left, just here. And then a hovering over a new photo and putting it over the background. So it's very easy to customize a ready-made template. But what we're going to do is create a design similar to this from scratch. So I'm going to add a new page down here. And then I'm going to add an image for the background. I think I'll just use this one here of the mountains. We don't need to spend too much time picking out a background because of course we can just change it later. So now I'll add a slight blur to this image as well. Click onto the image, and then I'll click adjust. And then we have many different adjustment options. And I'm simply going to turn blow up to about ten. There we go. So we have now got a slight blur on this image. I'm just going to close this menu on the left for now, so it is going away. And now let's go back to the original design to see what we need to add. Next, I'll add a white bar to the bottom. So I'll go to Elements and then shapes. And then I'll add this square and move it down to the bottom. It doesn't need to be this tone. And then we can make it a bit wider as well, so that it goes all the way from the left to the right of the design. And then of course, we also need to make it white. Fantastic. So that was really easy. We now have the bottom bar, like this one just here, already added to the bottom of our design. Next, what we need to do is add the main text. So I'm going to go to text on the left. So then from here we can either add some simple text by clicking on to one of these three options at the top. Or we could drag in a font combination. And in this design we are going to use a font combination. So we will just scroll through them to see which ones look good. We ideally need one that will look good in a poster. This one just here looks great. So I'm going to drag it in. And at the moment all of this text is aligned to the left and we wanted to align to the centre. So I'm going to click on it and then click the alignment button until it's all centered. So we have the main takes done. And then we need to center this text down here. And I'm actually not going to center this last bit of text down here because instead I'm going to delete it. So I've clicked on it. And all I need to do is click delete. And now we just need to center the text in the design. So that's centered, but I think it should also be a bit lower. About here. I think it looks good, may be bit higher actually. Just about here, I think looks great. So the next text that we need to add is the black text that we'll go over this white banner down here. So I'll scroll this back to the top. And then I'll click, Add a sub-heading. And then we're going to move it down here and then also make it black so we can actually see it. I think it can be a bit bigger as well. So about 28. And then I'm going to change the font. You can still be a bit bigger, I think maybe 32. And then we can also make it bold as well so that it stands out. So now I'll close this and get it out of the way. And I'll send to this text in the white box. Perfect. And now before I edit any of this text, what I'm going to do is change the background so that we can actually read the text which is on top of it. So I'm going to go back to photos. And then in these categories at the top, just here, I'm just gonna click the one over here called computer. And then I'm just going to drag one of these in. So one of the darker images will look better because the text is of course whites. So let's see what we can find. I think this image here could look good, so I'll drag it in. Yeah, that looks absolutely perfect. So now what we need to do is start editing all of this text so that it actually says what we wanted to say. So if I hide this tab so we can view it in full screen. Again, I'll scroll back to the top and see what it says in the template. So they have a well-done online education presents basic web development classes, sign up before May 2020 to get 20% discount. Reserve your slot now, and then the website address. So I think the first thing I would do is change the font of this text up here. So instead of classic, I'm going to put it as light and I'm going to make it bold as well. And then I'm also going to make the text a little bit bigger. I think that looks great. So now I'm going to change it so that it says black broke draining at the top. I think now the text at the top looks great. So I'll move on to this main heading text in the middle. And this postdoc is going to be a promotional poster for our SEO mustard gas. So where it says graphic design, I'm going to change it to say Search Engine Optimization. And as you can see, this is a little bit too big. So I'm going to have to make this takes a bit smaller. I think maybe 100 t will be good. That's still a bit too big. So I'll make it 160. Perfect. So I'll send to this again. I think just here looks good. And then this bottom text sediment is bugging out of it. So what I'm going to do is ungroup it from the rest of the text. And then I'm going to move it back up to just hear. And then I'll select all of the text again and regroup it so that it is a grouped elements so it can be moved at once together. And then I'm simply going to change this text at the bottom. Do say masterclass. And there we go. I think that looks absolutely brilliant. Or we need to do now is edit this text at the bottom. So before I edit the text, I'm actually going to make it so that it is not bowed before I thought it would work good Bode, but now I'm starting to think different. So luckily, because it is so easy to edit within Canvas, it takes no time at all to switch at the text between being bold and just being normal. So I will leave it as it is now. And then I'm simply going to type purchase because today. And then on the second line, I'm going to put it at the website address. So I'll do that now. And then I think I'll make the text a bit bigger again and then sent to it once more. And rather than having a full stop, I'm going to change it to say at so now it says purchase the course today at black brick draining Dakota UK. And there we go. We have now finished designing our poster. I think it looks absolutely fantastic. So if we compare it to the templates, actually think that my design looks better. So I'm going to do is delete the page of the templates on it. And now we just have my design. I'm going to rename the project to poster project. And then I'm also going to download the design. So I'll click this little download button here. And then we want to select the file type. So we can either select PNG JPEG or PDF standard or PDF print. We do not want it to be an MP4 or a gift because of course, it's a static design, not a video. I'm just going to select PDF print. Because of course that is what you will want to select if you are going to be printing your poster. And then if you want to, you can turn on quote marks and bleed. But I'm not going to in this example. And then all you need to do is click Download. Simply choose where you want to download your design too. And you can also rename your file. And then once you are happy, click save. And finally to end the video, I will open the file. And here we are. This is what we have created. You can of course use these buttons down here to either zoom in or zoom out. So I will zoom out a bit so we can see the whole design. This is the poster that we have created. That is all for this video. I hope you enjoyed it and I hope you learned something new. I will see you in the next one once again, thanks and goodbye. 22. Invoice Design Project: Welcome back. In this video, we're going to be using Canvas to design an invoice. Every single business in the world needs to be able to create an invoice. So this is a very important skill to have. So the first thing that you need to do is open your Canvas account and form your dashboard. You want to type in invoice into the search bar at the top, just here. So I'll just type in. Then from here we have a couple of different options, but I'm just going to click on to this one right here called invoice. So now what you need to do is select a relevant template for your invoice. So if you have a look at these, you can probably select one quite easily that you think will be relevant to your business. I forget that you can customize them. So even if they don't look perfect, you can make it personalized for your brand. So you shouldn't worry too much. But you've just got to scroll through them until we find a relevant invoice template. So for example, this one over here would be good for our cafe. This one next to it would be good for a clothing company. So you've just got to keep looking until you can find Y and relevant to your business. But like I said before, if there isn't one that looks relevant, we can customize it so that it is relevant to your business anyway. So to keep it simple, you can just select one that you like the look of. In fact, I really like this one here. Sorry, I'm going to click on to this one and have a better look at it. So in the main area of your screen, you will be able to see the template that you have selected. But if you decide that you don't want to use this one and you don't like it. You can just select a never templates from the Templates area on the left over here. So as you can see, there were three main categories. A business invoice, a service invoice, and a commercial invoice as well. So these different categories should help you to find the perfect invoice for you. But for now, I am going to click Hide just here so that we can have some more space to design our invoice. Now there are some amazing features within Canada that are amazing for invoices. So for example, you can save your design and use it over and over again. Or you will need to do is simply enter new information into your invoice. And that will allow you to use the same design in all of your invoices. And other great feature is the fact that you can upload your own brand assets. So for example, if I don't want these texts are pair and I want my brand logo instead. I will delete that text and I will go to the uploads section. And from here I could upload my brand logo. So as an example, I will go to Elements and type in logo. And I would just upload some random logo as an example. And that's how easy it is to add your own branding to your invoice. So I'll just change the color of this because we have a white and red fame. So that we go in a matter of seconds, I have branded my invoice. And the third Canvas feature, which I think is perfect for invoices, is the ability to email your invoice to anyone directly from Canvas. So here we have my invoice. If I need to email this invoice directly to a client, rather than downloading it and emailing it, I can simply click these furry dots up here and then go to email, type it in my client's email address, and then click send. So of course, that is a very handy feature for sending invoices to your clients. The majority of invoices should have a set amount of information. This information should include the name and contact information for the company that we invoice is from, and also for the person or company that the invoice is issued to. It should have an invoice number. There should be a description of the work or items that are being invoiced for as well is that there should also be a quantity. For example, if it is a service-based invoice, you would have amount of hours. But on the other hand, if this is for a product, you would have units written here instead of hours. And you would enter in the amount of units which are being invoiced for. So let's say there's five of these, four, V's, ten of these. And only one of these as what is that? You also have to enter the pricing information. This first item is $200 thousand per unit, and we have five units. So then for the total, you'd have to enter the price multiplied by the number of units. So this would be $10 thousand. For the next one, that would be 2 thousand. Then the next would be 4 thousand. And this final one would be $900, as there is just one unit. Then you would also need to enter the total of all of these added together. So that would be $16,900. And you may also need to enter VAT. So in order to add a line in here for VAT, I will select all of this information and then I'm simply going to move it up. So now I have some space down here to add in the VIT. So I'll move this line down. So now I will duplicate this text here and put it below it. And we'll make this first one VAT. Let's say in this example, VAT is 20%. So I will enter that in as well because it is crucial that you show what the VAT percentage is. And then 20% of 16,900 is 3,380. And now the total will be the total of all of these items plus the VAT on top of that. So instead of 16 thousand, it will be 20,280. I'll put a comma in there as well. There we go. And what I'm going to do is make the total text a bit bigger so that the total price to be paid is quite clear that we go, that's great. So this is how you can use Canva to create an invoice. Now let's just redesign this a little bit. So our change all of these reds to a nice blue color. Simply click onto any element that you want to edit, and then click on to the color option and select your new color. I'll even select these lines down here and this text as well. Finally, this text over here. And then we go that took me about 20 seconds to change the color of every element in this invoice. So let's say for example, you want to create a completely different invoice, or you need to do then is go back to templates, find another template that you want to use. So let's say for example, I'll go to a commercial invoice. And I'll select this one right here. Now if I close out of the templates, we can zoom in to the template that we have selected by using this feature down here. And then simply select the percentage that you want to zoom in. And then we can have a better look at this new invoice template. So once again, it is crucial that you enter all of the Lego information into your invoice. So for example, you want to enter your own brand name, your brand logo, and so on at the top. And then in the main content of the invoice, you'll want to enter in the items that you are invoicing, the quantity, the price, and the total price. And then you want to enter the tax and the total amount due as well. And in this particular template, the other information is down here on the left. So we have invoice number, invoice date, who the invoice is payable to, contact details and bank details as well. So I recommend having a look at a few different invoice templates to make sure that you select a template that has all of the information that you need to enter. If I template doesn't have all of the information that you need to enter in two, the invoice. You can't actually edit it and add some more information yourself. For example, if I want to add some more information down the left column on this invoice. I will just click onto one of these pieces of text. Then I right-click and copy. And then I will also paste it back in. And now we can just change this text that we have copied. So you can write anything here. So I've actually written too much information, so I need to move this backup so we can actually read it. And I have just added invoice issued to Barbara So that you want to enter the name address. So you can enter the address of the person or business that the invoice is issued to, and then the contact information for that person or baseness as well. Then if you want to add more items into your invoice or change the items which are in your invoice. I suggest clicking onto the text, copying it, and then pasting it. And then there we go. We have loads more items in the invoice. Is important that you center it, of course. And all you then need to do is click on to each individual piece of text and then enter in the name of the item or service that you are adding to the invoice, followed by the quantity. And then we want to do is enter the price per item or service. So let's say I'll do $500. So then the total in this final column will be the price multiplied by the quantity. So in this example it will be $5,500. Then we go and then at the bottom you'll need to enter the total amount, the tax or VAT amount. And then the total amount plus the tax or VAT, which obey the amount which is Jew on your invoice. So there we go. That is how you can create an invoice using Canva. I hope that this video has helped you and I hope that you enjoyed it as well. I will see you in the next one. Once again, thanks and goodbye. 23. YouTube Thumbail Project: Hello and welcome back. In this video, we are going to be using Canva to design a YouTube thumbnail. First of all, we need to choose which video we are designing a thumbnail for. So as you can see here, I am on my YouTube dashboard. And the video that I want to design a new thumbnail for is this one down here called the best WordPress SEO plug-ins. So I'll just click on to this video. And as you can say, this is the video that we want to design any thumbnail for. So let's open up Canva and begin the process. So what I am going to do first is go to the Canva Dashboard and I'm going to type in YouTube. And then what I am going to do is click on the option called YouTube thumbnail. So here we go from here we can either start from scratch and create a blank file, or we can have a headstart and use a ready-made template that will look brilliant for our design. Now I think what I'm going to do is use a template to, because it saves time and the templates have some awesome designs which are already laid out. So what we need to do is just scroll for these templates until we find one that will fit our particular video. So you can do this as well. You need to find a template which is relevant for your YouTube video and will also stand out on YouTube so that people want to click onto it. So let's have a look what we have here. There are many, many different options for you to choose from. I actually really like this one here. So I might actually use this, but I will keep scrolling just for a second to see if I can find a better one. I do also like this one and this one down here. I like all of them to be honest, but I think actually this one here is going to be perfect. So let's select this templates. And here we are. The project has been created and the template has already been added in for us. So the first thing I'm going to do is give myself a little more space by closing this panel on the left, by clicking this little button here. And then the next thing I'm going to do is change the background image for this design. So I need to do is open photos and I need to find a relevant photo for my video. So we're creating a thumbnail for the video titled The best WordPress SEO plug-ins. So we can make a few different searches to find the perfect background image. But first, I'm going to search for SEO. And then I'm just going to have a look at a few of these different images. Ideally, we do not want one if text. So let's just keep scrolling until we can find the perfect one. This one down here could look quite nice. So I will drag it in. The Agile, it looks really cool. What I could do is change the colors so that it's not pink. So I'll click onto the image and then I'll go to Effect. And then I'm going to go to Joe tone. And let's click onto this blue one. I don't think that that looks very good actually. So I'm going to choose a different one. I think this light blue peppermint could be good. Yeah, that's absolutely perfect. So now we have the background image already created. The next thing I'm going to do is remove the logo, which is the default logo in this funnel. And I'm going to add my brand's logo instead. So I'm going to do is go to uploads and then upload media, upload from device. And then I'm simply going to select my logo, which is this one right here. And now I'm going to let it upload. And then simply drag it into the file and make it much smaller. And then I'm going to remove the default one which is already here. And then put mine in its place. I might just make it a little smaller. 80 by 80 sounds good. And there we go. So we have now put our logo into the thumbnail design. I'm actually going to try this with another style of my logo as well. So I'm going to go back to upload. And then I'm going to click on to this one here, because this one has a slightly different style to it. And I think it might look a little bit better than this one. So let's say I'll make this smaller. That's exactly the same size. I'll delete this one and I'll put this one in its place. And the, I think the design of this logo looks a lot nicer than the one we just used. So this is the one that I will be using. Now I'm going to do is edit the text. So first of all, I'm going to edit the main text and simply replace it with the title of my video. So keep it simple. I'm just going to copy and paste it. There we go. That's absolutely fantastic. And then at the top here where it says, let's talk money. I'm simply going to replace it with WordPress tips. So this could be a new little series we do on the channel and it will be cold WordPress tips. So within the WordPress tips series, we have a video titled The best WordPress SEO plug-ins. I think that this looks absolutely fantastic. I'm just going to edit this text slightly, so I'm going to select it. And then what I'm going to do is increase the letter spacing slightly. I think that is better. And then I'm also going to have a look at different fonts by might not necessarily change it. I'm just gonna see what it looks like in a different font. Now this new font has made it a bit too big. So I'm going to make the text Saudi smaller. And I think I'm also going to have to decrease the letter spacing a little bit just because I increased it a bit too much in the first place. There we go. Now I think that that looks a lot better than it did before. So I'm also going to change the main text font as well. So I'm going to click on to it and then go to Funds. And I'm going to go to this one over here. And I think that this looks good. I'm just going to make the text a little bit smaller. So instead of 76, it's going to be 72. There we go. That fits in. Although I think it would look better if SEO and plug-ins actually fits into the same sentence. So I'm just going to make the text a little bit smaller, one small. I'll try 68. There we go. That's perfect. Now what else can I do to improve this thumbnail? I think I know what could do it. So what I'm going to do is move all of this text down. I think it should be a little bit higher than this. It just not all the way to the top corner like it was before. How's that? There we go. I think that that looks much better. And then I have a couple more ideas on how I can improve this thumbnail. First of all, I'm going to click on the text and then I'm going to see if it looks better when it's not bold text. Yep, I think that that looks a lot better. And then I'm also going to change the color of this element behind the text as well, because I don't think that the green ready fits this thumbnail. So what I'm going to do is make it the same color as my logo down here, which is my brand blue just here. And I think that looks much better. So then I'm also going to do the same thing with the next green over here, and then also the last one here. So I think that this looks much, much better, although some things that isn't quite right. So I'm going to click on to the main background image once more. And what I'm going to do is click on two effects again. And I think that the original effect I selected isn't quite right. So I'm just going to select a different one to replace it. So first I think I'll try cherry. That is quite cold. I like the red, but I think it's a bit too dark. I don't like that one. That one's quite nice, but it's not quite right. As see what we have here. I think that this one's a little bit too bright. And so is that one. So let's see what else we have. This one fits in quite nicely, but we can see what else there is available. I don't like this one. Let's see what else there is. No, no, no. The mono one is quite cold, but I think it might be a bit too dark. This one's quite good. Dusk. In fact, I think that that might be the one we go four. So here we go. This is the thumbnail that we have created using Canva. I think that it looks absolutely fantastic. Although one thing I'm going to do is select all of this and make it a bit bigger. I think I'll make it quite a bit bigger, to be honest. I go all the way up to 700 wide. There we go. And then I'll move it up a little bit more. In fact, I'll move it back up to where it originally was. I think it didn't really fit the top left corner when the text to a smaller. But now that the text is a lot bigger, if it's in the corner quite nicely. And then the final thing that we need to do is retitle this project. So what I'm going to do is copy this text here and simply paste it in as the title. So there we go. We have now successfully created a YouTube video thumbnail using Canva. Or you need to do now is download your file and then upload it to your YouTube video so that it is live on YouTube. That is all for this video. I hope you enjoyed it and I hope you learned something new. I will see you in the next one once again, thanks and goodbye. 24. YouTube Channel Banner Project: Hello and welcome back. In this video, we are going to be using Canva to design a YouTube banner. So let's get straight into it. The first thing that we need to do is find the YouTube Banner project type within Canada. So we're going to go to social media, and then we're just going to look for YouTube banner. Here we go. This is, it is actually called YouTube channel art on here. So we're going to click on to this. And now we can begin to create a YouTube banner using Canva. The first thing that we need to do is find a template. There are many different options, so make sure that you take your time to select the one which will be best for your brand or your channel. This one here looks quite coal. So let's try to create an amazing partner with this template. So first, let's create a brand new page and I'm going to show you how to create a design just like the one in this template. But we're going to start from scratch with a completely blank page. So I will hide this menu now on the left so we can see it in full screen and we can begin to design. So the first thing that we're going to do is add this background image. So I'm going to go to photos and then I'm going to find a nice photo. I'm not going to use the exact same picture which is used here. And we're going to find a different one. Just keep scrolling through the images to see what pops up. Ok, I'm not really liking any of these. So I'm going to type in desk because there are always good desk images on here. And then we need to select an image which looks the best and most relevant for our brand. So I'm doing a banner for Blackboard Training. We need a clean image which maybe has some tack on it, like a laptop or something like that. So maybe this first one here could be good. That's quite nice. But there are others as well, so we don't need to choose that one straight away. We can keep scrolling down for now just to see what else there is. I think this might be the one, and this is a very nice picture. And delete this one I already have. And I think I've actually found an even better one. This one here looks perfect. And so that's the other one we have. And let's work with this one here. So now that we have selected the image we're going to use, I'm going to collapse this menu. Again. We can view it in full screen. And now we need to make it so that it has the same border as the original template. So to do that, I'm going to move the image to the top left and then fill it into the entire screen until it's completely failed, like so. And then I'll send to it once again to make sure that it's properly centered. And in order to get this white border effect that they have in this original templates. We can have a crop the image so that there is white space all the way around the image forming a border. Or alternatively, we could go to Elements and then lines, and then select this line here and make it white. Make it much bigger until it is the desired width. Like so. And then place it simply above like this. And then duplicate it and place it below as well. And then I'll duplicate it again. And then I rotate this 190 degrees. It's maybe a bit too big to rotate easily by its right. And there we go, that's 90. And then we can just move this one over to the right, like so, and then duplicate it and move this one to the left. Fantastic. And now we have added a border just like this one up here. So we didn't even need to crop the image. And it looks like it's cropped and it was very, very easy to do. So now let's hide the elements tab. And the next thing that we want to do is make the image darker like they have in the original template. So we're going to click on to the image and then go to effects. And then we're going to look for an effect that will make it darker. This one here looks quite nice. Mano. I'm gonna try classic as well. I think that looks absolutely perfect in my opinion. So I'm going to leave that as is. The next thing that we are going to do won't change how the design looks, but he's gonna make it much easier to actually edit the design. So I'm going to select all of these lines that form the border. So first the one at the top and then hold shift, and click onto the one on the left. Keep holding shift. Click on to the one on the bottom. And keep holding shift. Click on to the one on the right. And I can let go of shift and then go to group. So now that they are all grouped together, simply select one of them. So for example, I'll select the bottom one as they are all in a group. It will now select all of them. Whenever you select one of them, I hope that makes some sort of sense. And then simply click this little padlock up here to lock them. So now you can't select any of them because they are all logged. That makes it really easy to edit the rest of the design. So the next thing that we need to do is add the shape up here, which has the text inside it. So to find that shape, we're going to go to Elements and then go to shapes. And then we want the square just here, which is just an outline. So select that and make it white. So I'm going to make it a lot shorter. And then I'll make it a bit wider. And then I'm going to center it as well. And then I'll close these shapes once more to get them out of the way. And I think it needs to be a bit shorter ones more. And then we need to center again. And I think that is perfect. The final thing that we need to do now is add the text to the middle of this shape. So we're going to go to text at a heading. And then we will close this panel to give us more space. And I'll type in black brick training. Select it, and we are going to change the font. And then make it so that it is own uppercase. Make the text a lot bigger. It's currently 31.5, so we'll make it 56. Perfect. Center the text. We should also make the text color white. Okay, that does look much better, but now we can't really read it because of the effect on the background image. So let's change that effect right now. So because we have the border in front of this background image, we can't actually click on it. So the first thing we need to do here is unlocked the border and then move it out the way. And now we can click onto the background image. So now that we can easily select the background image, I'm going to go back to effects. And then we're going to have a look at a few different effects that are available to see which ones actually make the text a visible. Because if the text is not readable, what's the point of even being there? So we have many different options on the left over here. For example, comics, which is quite nice, Cherry at the top just here, which adds a nice red effect, and a few others as well. So we can just go through them until we see one that stands out and looks very nice. This blue one looks quite nice. So I think it's going to be down to either rainbow or see blue. And I think I do prefer the blue one. So now I'm going to put the border back to where it was. Make sure that it's properly centered. There we go. I think that is perfect. And now once again, I'm going to lock the border again so that I can't accidentally move it around. So I could actually make this text and the box around it slightly bigger. And then center again. And there we go. I think that looks absolutely fantastic. I think that one thing I could do is add some spacing between the letters so that the text looks a bit nicer. So to do that, we're going to select the text and go to this button up here, which is called spacing. And then I'm just going to slightly increase the letter spacing. I think that looks good like that. So now of course we need to make the box bigger as well. And make sure that it's centered once more is still needs to be a bit wider and center that. And then ensure that the text is centered as well. And boom, there we go. It looks absolutely amazing. If I wanted to, I could also add my social usernames that below the box. So for example, I could add a Twitter icon and Instagram icon and I Facebook icon along with the Black Greek training username for each social platform. So I could go to Elements and then I'll search for Twitter. This one here looks good. Facebook. This one's perfect. And then of course we need Instagram as well. And I'll just select the first Instagram icon. So now I'll make each of these white. So we have Instagram. Now we'll do the Facebook one. And then also the Twitter one. Fantastic. Now we need to make them all that much smaller. I think that's about the size we need. Saw the line them next to each other and make the Facebook one the same size. And I'll do the same with the Twitter one. Perfect. I think they can be a bit small. Os2, I'll select all of them. And I think around 250 will be alright. So then I'll move Instagram up here. A bit higher will be good and allowed my Instagram username and next to it. And I'll also make the text a bit bigger so that it is actually readable. Fantastic. And then I will add Facebook connects to it. And I would duplicate the Instagram username and put it next to Facebook. And for Facebook we won't have an act, we will have a slash because is facebook.com forward slash black brick ink. That's wonderful. And then output Twitter up here as well. Making sure that once again, it is old aligned. I think that looks good. And that'll be at, so a duplicate the Instagram username and align it all nicely. Fantastic. And now I will just select all of the usernames and icons and simply sent to them below the main text. Wonderful. And there we go. We have finished the design. I think this looks absolutely amazing. And they also think that it looks much, much better than the templates we were using for inspiration. So I'm going to delete the template. And now what we need to do is download the design. All of this is already perfect. So click Download. I'm just going to name it black brick draining banner. And then I'm going to click save. And there we go. We have now successfully designed and downloaded a YouTube channel banner. 25. Blog Title Image Project: Hello and welcome back. In this video, we're going to be using Canva to design a blog title image. This could also be called a featured blog image or a blog title graphic. There were many different names for it, but basically it is the main title image for a blog post. So let's dive straight into it. First of all, you want to go to Canvas and on the homepage, I'm simply going to type in blog. Here we can now see many different options, but we went to select the first one called blog banner. Now we can either select a relevant template. There were many, many different options, or we could choose to start the project from scratch. I think that first of all, I'm just going to have a look at a few of the different templates to see what options we have. So I'm just going to scroll through these and see what we can find. I quite like these ones, this one here and this one here. But we've some text over the top, I think would look a bit better. But we can keep looking. I think that this one here is great if you can make it look relevant for your blog post. I don't think I'll be able to, so I don't think I will select that one right now. This one over here has quite a nice style as well. But I think that this is the one that I'm going to select. As soon as I saw it stood out to me and I think that it will be perfect. So I'm going to select this template. And it will now create my new kind of a project. And the template has already been added to the project. So now what we need to do is choose a new background image, customize the colors and the font. And we also need to enter our blog title text rather than the default text which is already here. So I think the first thing I'm going to do is change the font. So I will select the text and then I will go up here and click onto the font. And then we want to choose the font which is best for us. So we'll have a look at a few different ones. First of all, I quite like this one, but of course it means the text is too big, so we're also going to make the text a little bit smaller. There we go. That fits perfectly. And then I'm also going to change the font for the bottom text down here as well. And I think that this one here will be perfect, fantastic. So we have now successfully chosen the fonts which we will use in this blog title image. I think that now I'm just going to change the color of the block behind the text right here. So I will select it and then go to color up here. And then I'm going to find my brand colors down here. And I'm going to select the one that I think looks best. And in this case I think that the blue looks best. So I will select the blue there. And then I'm going to select the outline as well. And I think I'm going to make that my other burned Carla, the darker color. And that fits in quite nicely. So now this is what we have. We have successfully edited the font and the colors as well. So now I'm going to do is add the text for my blog post. And then once I've done that, I will find a suitable image for the background. Now the title of my blog post is learn how to build a WordPress website in a day. So I think on the title over here, I'm going to put something a little bit shorter than that so that it fits in nicely. And then below here, I'll put Become a word verse experts or something similar to that. So first I'm going to select the main title text, and I'm going to enter the text I want to have in replace of what's already here. So as you can see, it does not fit in very well at all. So I'm going to make the textbooks a bit wider. And then I'm also going to make the text a bit smaller. That nearly fits in, but still not quite. So I'm going to do is make this block behind it a bit bigger. And then I'll send to the text in the block again. And then we can make the textbox wider so that it fits nicely. And unfortunately is still doesn't quite fit in as we would want it to. So I'm going to do is make the text of it wider once more. And I'll make sure it's centered again. And now I think I'm just going to have to make it a bit smaller just so that it fits in. There we go. So that now fits in very well. I'm also going to replace the word site for website just because I think it will look a bit better yet, but that is much better. And then down here where we have the smaller text, I'm going to put the whole blog title because it will all fit in there nicely. So I'm going to type in, learn how to build a WordPress website in a day. That looks absolutely fantastic. So now all I need to do to finish this blog title image is to change the background image. So to do that, I'm going to go to photos and then search, and I'm going to search for WordPress. Some of these could be good. This one here could be decent. That is pretty good, but I don't think it quite fits in. So I'll keep looking. I'll try this one here. That doesn't look great. Ivr. I think that this one here looks absolutely perfect. But there are a few changes that I think I can make now that I have chosen this background image. So first of all, I'm going to select this block behind the text and I'm going to make it slightly transparent. I think about 60 will be good. And then I think I'm going to select the block and also the text on top of it. And I'm simply now going to nudge it slightly to the left. I think about here will be good. So how does this look now? I think it looks good. Although I think what I should do is edit this text down here, the small text. And what I'm going to do is go to spacing and increase the letter spacing slightly. I think that's good. And then I think I will also increase the transparency on this blog. But just here, I think 60 is a little too low, so I'll change it and put it up to about 75. So now I think that that looks absolutely fantastic. So there we go. We have successfully designed a nicer looking blog title graphic using Canva. I hope that this video has helped you in some way or another and it has taught you something new. I'll see you in the next one. Once again, thanks and goodbye. 26. Business Card Project: We are now going to use Canvas to design a business card. So the first thing that you need to do is to create a business card project. So to find the business card project type in this menu here, you can either click onto order prints and then find the business card project here. Or alternatively, you can type business card into the search box up here, and then click on to the search result titled business card. So that is what I'll do right now. Now you need to choose your starting point for your business card design. So by clicking on this icon over here, you'll be able to start from a completely blank project. So you'll basically be starting from scratch. Or alternatively, you can select one of these templates that you can use in your design. So let's have a quick look at these templates to see what we can find. C if it has a nice one for us to use. This one over here is quite sleek. I like it a lot, to be honest. And this one here as well is quite nice. In fact, I think I will click onto this one. Then once you've chosen the one that you want to use, click onto it like so. And now you have successfully created your business guard project. So as you can see, if I collapse this menu, we have the front of the business card with your logo. And then when you scroll down to page two, you can see the back of your business card which has your contact information, website address, and any other information that you decide to put onto it. So I'll go back to the front of the business card for now. And to start with what I'm going to do is rename the project. So I'm going to click on to this text up here, select it. And then I'm just going to title this project business card. And then I'll hit enter once I'm happy. And that will now save the project title as business card. So rather than just showing you how to customize this templates, I am going to add two more pages to this project and delete their backgrounds. And I'm effectively going to show you how to design the front and back of this business cards template. But we're going to do it from scratch with two blank pages. So let's get started. First of all, I'm going to recreate the front page. So we have a dark background color, some text at the top left with the name and the job role for whoever this business card it is, and a simple icon in the middle. So let's start by doing that right now. So first of all, I will click on to background down here. And from here I'm going to click on this icon just here, and then click New Collar. And what we're going to do is create a completely new color to use as our background. So we want it to be quite a dark color. I think a dark blue sort of color could look nice. So let's see how something like this could look. There it goes to that is the front of the business card. And I will use the exact same color for the back of the business card as well. There we go. So now we have the backgrounds sorted. Now what I'm going to do is add the text which has the name and job role on the top left of the front of the business card. So to do that, I'll click on two texts over here. And then rather than adding some of these basic text, I'm going to look for a nice font combination. Here we go. This one here looks absolutely perfect. So first of all, I'm going to change the name. There we go. And then I'm going to change the job role as well. Below that, I'll type a and marketing manager. And of course, this needs to be quite a bit smaller. And they also needs to be located at the top left of the design. So I'll let it click in just a, I think that is perfect. And now I need to do is add the circle in the center of the design. And inside that circle I'm going to add an a for Anthony. Sorry, I'll click onto elements just here. And then I'll click on to SEO and x2 shapes. And we want to find a good circle. This one just hair looks perfect. And I'll make it white. And I'm going to make it a bit smaller. And then centered as well. Lovely. And now all I need to do is add the a to the center of the circle. So I'm just going to have a look at the font in this text or pair. It is league Spartan. So now that I know that I'm going to go back to text, add a heading, change the font to leak Spartan. And I'm simply going to put in an a. There we go. I think I'll make this a bit bigger. And I need to move it down a bit. Perfect. I think that looks absolutely brilliant. So that's page one or the front of the business card completed. I think that this looks really sleek and it's really clean and simplistic design, and I absolutely love it. So now we need to go ahead and design the back of the business card. So if we go back to the template, we have two sections of text separated by a line. So we can do this really quite easily. First of all, I'm going to copy this text element from the front of the business card and paste it into the back and also make it a bit bigger. I think that this is about the right size. Maybe a little bit smaller. There we go. And now I'm going to add the line for the separator. So to do that, I will click onto elements just here. And then I'll click on two lines. And I think I'll just bring this first line into our design. And then I'll make it white. And then I will click on this icon up here to change the line whites. I think I'll bring it all the way down to one. Yep, that looks good. Now, I'll go ahead and make the line narrower. I think half way could be good. So I'll leave it here. And I'm going to customize this text a little bit so that it's more like the original template. So first I'm going to put Antony Isaac on two separate lines. There we go. And then I'm going to make marketing manager italic. And then I'll move it back down to where it was. There we go. That looks much better. And I'll make the marketing manager text on the front Italic as well, just so that it all fits in nicely. And oh, we need to do now is add this final block of text to our business card. So let's go back down to the back of the card and let's go back to text. I'm going to click on to add a subheading. Now I'm going to check the font for marketing manager, and I can see that it's called Sanchez. So I'm going to do is make this text down here, the same font as the marketing manager text. So I'll click onto the fonts are up here, and I will select Sanchez. And now I can bring the text down here. I think about here will be good. I will close this panel again so that we have some more space. And if I scroll back up to the original templates now, we can see that on here there are three lines of text and email address, a street address, and finally, a phone number below that as well. So I will add it the three lines of text down here. First I will add an email address. Then to add a second line of text, I'll click Enter. And in the second line, I will add a street address. And I'll just make the box a bit wider. And now I'll hit enter one more time to add a fad line. And here I'll add a random number. Okay, so there we go. We now have the three lines of text added in. So now what we need to do is align all of this text to the left, like this text. I'll pay. We want to click on to the text box and then simply click on this icon up here. And then it will align all of the text to the left for us. So now let's reposition all of this text. There we go. And I'll just make this separator line a bit wider. There we go. So we have successfully designed this business card using Canva. I'm going to delete the template pages. And now we just have the business card that we have created. So we have the front of the business card right here. And then the back of the business card as well. Of course, you want to enter in all of your own information into your business guard. And then you can either download it and print it with a business card printing company. Or alternatively, can Voc and print your business cards for you. So as you can see, we have a print business cards button up here. If I click on to that, it will allow us to go through the process of paying Canva to Prince and deliver our business cards to our doorstep. So there we go. That is how you create a business card in Canva. I hope that you enjoyed this video and learned something new. I will see you in the next one once again, thanks and goodbye. 27. Twitter Header Project: Hello and welcome back. So in this video we're going to be designing a Twitter header using Canva. So let's get straight into it. First of all, we need to find the Twitter header design project. So to do that, I'm going to type in at Twitter header. And then we want to select this one at the top right here, code Twitter header. The next thing that we need to do is select a template to that we want to use for our Twitter header. So you want to find one which is relevant to your brand. Or alternatively, you can enter a color and then you will only see templates which are in that color. So for example, if I hit green, We will see green templates. If I hit blue, there are no blue templates. If I hit black, we will see all of the dark colored templates and so on. So I think I'll select one of the darker templates. So if I just scroll through them a bit, I'll probably find one which I think looks quite nice. This one down here, this coffee one looks good. But obviously that before a coffee brand, this one over here that says follow me, could be quite interesting. So I think I would actually choose this one. Yeah, this could be quite a good one. So let's start customizing this template. First of all, I'm going to change the background. So in order to do that, I will click on to background down here. And then we're going to look for a nice background image. These two here could be good. I'll have a look at both of them are nice, but they're also both very simple. Okay, yeah, I think I'll use this one here. Now. I think that the font is already pretty good. But why we would do is click onto the text and then go to effects are pair. And we can have a look if there were any nice effects that we can add to this design. Okay, this one here called splice, looks really quite nice. So now I'm going to do is customize the font for this text down here as well. And I think that this one here looks great. So now what I'll do is change it so that it has my Twitter username. And I'm gonna click this icon up here to make the text uppercase. And I'm also going to make the element wider so that the text fits in. There we go, that's great. And I'll move it down a little bit. There we go. Fantastic. I'm actually going to try a few more funds for this as well because I think that there could be a better one for us to use. This one here, I think is perfect. So we'll leave that as is for now. And I know that I said I quite like this background image, but I'm also going to try a few other images to see how other images will look for the background. Because now that I have added this effect on the main text, I think that it doesn't really suit it. So I'm gonna try a few different background images. Here we go. I think that we will go with this one here. And I'm also going to try out a few different texts effect using this new background. This one here called lift actually looks really, really nice. So I think this is going to be perfect. And I'm also going to add that same effect to the Twitter username as well. And there we go. I think that that looks absolutely fantastic. Now, this is a really simple design, but I think it also pops out really nicely. And there isn't really much more we can add to it. You don't need too much in your Twitter header anyway, it only needs to be quite simple. So I think I'm actually going to leave it like this. I will rename the project or the top just here, so that it just says, tweets our header. Then we go. And now all we need to do is download our design as a PNG. That is perfect. So I'll click the download button just here. There we go. We can now save the file to my computer. And now I will upload it to my Twitter profile. We need to do to upload a new header is click edit profile would just here. And then click this little camera icon on the header image. And then we just need to double-click on new Twitter header design just here. And then click Apply. Now that we have applied the new header, we simply need to click save. And there we go. Our new Twitter header has been uploaded to our Twitter page. So that is how you create a Twitter header using Canva. And we have also uploaded it to our Twitter page. That is all for this video. I hope you enjoyed it and I hope you learned something new. I will see you in the next one once again, thanks and goodbye. 28. Twitter Post Project: Welcome back. So in this video we're going to be using Canva to design a Twitter post. So let's get straight into it. The very first thing that we need to do is create our project. So in order to create a twitter post project, you can either type in Twitter post up here in the search box. Alternatively, within your main dashboard, you could click on to social media. And then you want to look for the Twitter post project. And here it is right here. So I will click on to this. And now we have created our project. So as you can see, we have a blank file. So what we need to do now is look for a template to that we're going to base our designed around. So all of the templates are on the left over here for you, so you can just select one that you want to use. So just keep scrolling through them into you find one that stands out to you. With these templates, there are two main types of templates. We have the quotes, which are ones like this. And then we have the info. So you can create IVR and information based design. Or alternatively, you can create a quote based design. I quite like this one just here, so I will click on to this. I think that this one could be quite good. I could do a promotion for one of my courses. So I could have the course title at the top and image that represents the course on the left. And then on the right, I will add some information as to what you will learn in the course. So I'm going to do is start by creating a completely blank page because we're not actually going to be using this template. We're going to create a blank file and start from scratch, but we would just be designing our Twitter posts based on the template up here. So I'll just get straight into it and starts creating the design. So if I have a look at the templates, we can see that we have two orange bars, one at the top and one at the bottom. So that is what I will do first, but I will not be making them orange. So I'll start by going to elements on the left over here. And then I'm gonna go to shapes and select this shape right here. And then I'm gonna move it up to the top left and then drag it all the way across so that the width of it is the same width as the design. And then I'm also going to change the height of it as well. I think 150 pixels sounds good. So then I'll right-click it and click Copy. And then I'll right-click and click Paste. And then I'll move this bar to the bottom. And in the original template to the bar at the bottom is meant to be a bit smaller. So I'll make this 1100 pixels. I can't quite get it to be just 100, so I'll leave it as 101 for now. Okay, so if we compare this to the original templates, we can see that the bottom banner is actually much smaller. So I'll just make this much, much smaller. I think 50, we'll be OK. And then I think that the top banner is just about okay. So now what I'll do is add the image which will go on the left of the design. So to do that, I'll go to photos. And then I will just select this photo right here. And I'll move it to the left. And what I'm going to do now is make it so the photo goes halfway through the image. There we go. And I could co-op the rest of the image out, but it's not visible, so it doesn't really matter at all anyway. So now if I go back to the template, we can see that I need to add the title. So I'll do that right now. I'll go to text and then add a heading. And I'll bring it up here. And then I'll make it white. And I'm also going to change the font. And now that I've changed the font, I'm also going to make the text a bit smaller or try 42. That could be good. So then I'll move the text across a little bit and it locks in just here. So I think I'll leave it just here. So what I'll do is change this text so that it says Canva design master glass. And then I'm going to have to make this a bit wider so that it fits in. There we go. And then I'm gonna move it over to the left again. And it clicks in just here. So I think that that will be good. In fact, in the original template, it does actually go to the right a bit. So I will just move it over to the right a little bit more. I think here is good. So now I need to do is add my logo to the top right. So I'll go to uploads. And then I will select this one just here. Of course, I make it smaller and I'll fit it in just about here. That looks good. I think it can be a bit smaller still yet. And I think I can move it all the way to the corner about here because it OK. So in quite nicely. Okay, so the top banner is completely done and we don't need to make any more changes to that. These left image is looking good as well. So what do I need to edit to that at all? So I think what I'll do next is add this text over here, which is on the right of the design. So in order to add that text, I need to click on to text over here. And then I'm going to select, Add a sub-heading. And I'm instantly going to change the font that we have for this text. I think that Mary Weaver will be good. So then I'll move the text over here. And I'm going to align it to the left. And what I'm going to do is start pasting in the text that I want to be on the right over here. Okay, so then I'll make the text of it smaller. 28 sounds good. And then I will center it about here. Looks okay. And I think that I could make it a bit wider. And I'll also make the text a bit smaller again. And now that we have this first line, I'm going to hit enter. And now I'm going to paste in some more text. I'll space it out a little bit. And now I'll hit enter to write some more text below this as well. And I want this text to be in a list. It is going to be a list of things you will learn how to make using Canva. So I'll click this up here so that all of the items will appear in bullet points. And now I'm going to do is simply start typing them in. There we go. So I think that this looks good so far. So now I'm going to hit Enter a couple more times and I have one more bit of text that I want to paste in. Okay, so that looks absolutely fantastic. So now I'm going to ensure that all of this text is centered. There we go. And now I'm gonna go around and make some of the texts borrowed and change some of the colors and so on. So first of all, I will select, discover your potential. And I'm going to make that bowed. And I'm also going to make it blue. There we go. And then I'm going to select the text that says 12 video projects and make that bold as well. And then I'm going to do the exact same where it says four hours of HD videos. I think that this looks great so far. And now all I need to do is add the little bit of text to the very bottom of the design. So in the original design, they have three different icons and a hashtag. I'm gonna do the exact same for then instead of the hashtag, I'm gonna put my username for those social platforms. So I'll click onto elements. And I'll type in Instagram. And we'll use this Instagram icon here. Of course, we need to make it whites as well. There we go, that's good. And then we'll also grab this Twitter one here as well. And finally, I will add the Facebook one here as well. Okay, so I think that these associate icons do need to be made a little smaller. So I'll click onto them one-by-one and make them a little smaller. There we go. That is perfect. And then I'll move them all up again. If you are working with icons that are this small, I do recommend is zooming into the design that you can focus on what you are actually working on as doing this can actually make it quite a lot easier. But anyway, now that we have done that, I would just click on to the 300% and then click on to fit to go back to the normal view. That asked thing that we need to do is add the social media at down here. So I'll go back and click on to text. And then I'll click on to add a sub heading just here. And I will type in our social media username. And then I'll make that text white. And I'll bring it down here. Make it a bit smaller. And I think that that is now positioned into a good place. So I'll change the font. And there we go. We have now created a Twitter post. Now you can choose to publish your design directly to Twitter from Canvas, or you can download your design to your computer. But that is it. That is how you design a Twitter posts using Canva. That's all for the video. I hope you enjoyed it and I hope you learned something new. I will see you in the next one once again, thanks and goodbye. 29. Facebook Cover Project: If you have recently created a new Facebook page for your brand, or you just think that your Facebook page looks outdated. You may need to design a new Facebook page cover. In this video, I'm going to show you exactly that. I'm going to show you how to design a Facebook page cover using Canva. So let's get straight into it. First of all, from our Canvas dashboard right here, click onto this social media tab. And then from here we want to find the Facebook cafe design. So we want to click onto this one right here. And now we have begun the process of creating our Facebook page cover project. So realistically you have three options from here. You can either design a straight from a template. You can create a design from scratch and create exactly what you want. Or alternatively, you can create a design from scratch, but based off of a template too, which is already created. In this example, I'm going to show you how to create a brand new design from scratch. And we're going to base it off of one of these templates along the left over here. So the very first step is to pick out a template which you think will look good for your brand. So it needs to be relevant. For example, you don't want to use a beauty template. If you are a tech brand, Let's just pick out a template from here. I think that this one here could be quite good. Yeah, this is quite a nice templates indeed. So I'm going to show you how to design. It's something a bit like this, but we're going to work from a completely blank project. So I'll click Add New Page down here. And first of all, we're going to find a background image. So we're going to go to our design. And from here we want to click onto photos over here. And what we wanted to do is find a relevant background image. So depending on what your brand is, you will know what you should type in. Because I'm going to create a tech style banner. I'm going to type in desk because there were always some great images related to this search term. So for example, I'll try this one just here. This could be good, but let's keep looking. We could find something better. Here we go. This one looks perfect. So we have successfully found an image for our background. Now I'm going to close this panel just here so we can work on our design in full screen. Let's have another quick look at the template. They have this interesting shape just here. So we want to find this same shape for our own design. So to do that, we're going to go to elements. And from here we're going to go to shapes and click Save. And now we're simply going to look for a shape that looks something like this. So we're just gonna keep scrolling until we can find that particular shape. It could take some time. But we've just got to keep looking into we can find it. There we go. This is the one that we're looking for right here. So let's click on to this shape to add it to our project. And what I wanted to do now is make this shape quite a bit bigger. Because we are going to be putting our main content inside this shape. So it needs to actually have some space. And then I'm going to align it to the right until it clicks. And then I'm also going to move it down until it clicks. There we go. So now it is in the perfect placement. So let's click off of this and close everything and scroll back up. And as you can see in the original template, they have three separate bits of text. They have a brand name or a heading. And below this main heading they have a subheading followed by their web address. So we can do that exact same thing as well. But first of all, I'm going to change the color of this image. So I will select it and then click on to this little color block up here. And what I'm going to do is select my own brand color just here, which is my blue. There we go. That looks fantastic. And now we're going to add this text. So I will click on to text down here. And I'll click add a heading. And in this heading I will type in black break training. And I will move it into this shape. I'm also going to change the font for this text. And then I'm also going to decrease the line height by clicking on to this icon here and moving this number to about 1. So actually I'll try 1.1. There we go. And then I'm also going to do two more things to this text. I'm going to align it to the right and I'm going to change the text color. So what Carla should we actually use? If you are a brand, you should already have a brand color. So you should really only know what color you will use for your texts. But I think I'll just use this color just here in this example. And now the main heading text is done. So I have my brand name added to the design. Now I need to add these two bits of text as well. So what I'm going to do is go to text and add a sub-heading. And for the first line of text, I'm going to put online courses. And it simply enter a web address into the second line. So now I will move this over the shape as well. Forget to also align all of this text to the right. So now I'm going to customize each of these two lines of text. So first I will select the first line and I'm going to make it bold. I'm going to change the font and also the color. And for the text on the second line, I will change the font. And I'm also going to slightly decrease the letter spacing. I'll try minus 10. There we go. That's good. And then I'm going to make the text a little bit smaller. So it is currently 38 pixels, but I'm going to try 36. Let's try 44 as well. I think that it can still be even smaller than that. So I'll try 28. Okay, that's a bit too small, so I'll try 30. Okay, this could be perfect. Let's see what this website address text looks like when it's bold. Okay, that's also quite good. And finally, I'm also going to change the color. So I'm going to do is make it so that it is the same color as the brand name. So that is this one just here. And there we go. So that looks rather good. Indeed. There are a couple of things that we can do to make this look even better. I will make the main text a little bit smaller. So it's currently 66, I'll make it 60 four. Okay, That's good. And I'm going to move the text down a little bit as well. And then I'm going to lock the position of the shape by clicking on it and then clicking the lock up here. And that will now allow me to select all of the text at once. And then I can simply move O down like so. I'll bring it down to about. I think it'll be good about here. Okay, so this looks really quite nice. So what I'm going to do is also have a look at what the background it looks like with a slight blur. So I'll click onto the background and then I'll click on to adjust. And I'm just going to put the blur as five. Okay. That's not bad at all. I think I might leave it like that. Let's also just have a look at what the main text will look like. Italic. I actually really like that. So I think I will leave it like that. And there we go. So we have successfully created this Facebook page cover. Let's just rename this project and make sure that it auto saves. There we go. All changes have been saved. And now all you need to do is download your Facebook page cover and then simply uploaded to your Facebook page. So there we go. That is all for this video, we have successfully designed a Facebook page cover using Canva. It is a simple design, but I think it also looks really quite nice as well. So that is all for this video. I hope that you enjoyed it and I hope that you learned something new. I will see you in the next one once again, thanks and goodbye. 30. Facebook Ad Project: Now we're going to design a Facebook ad using Canva. First of all, we need to create a Facebook ad Project. So I'm going to type in ads are pair. And as you can see, the very first one is a Facebook ad. So click on to that. And now you'll be able to see all of the different Facebook ad templates that are available to you. Before we select a template for our Facebook ad, we're going to use the Facebook ad library to have a look at some example adds to that other companies have created. If you want to have a look at the ad library as well to find it, or you need to do is go to facebook.com, forward slash ads, forward slash library. And then this is the page you'll be taken to. Now all you need to do from here is typing and advertise a name. So we could type in companies like Amazon, Coca Cola, Google, and so on. So in this example I'm just going to type in Samsung. And then I will click on to one of these samsung pages. I think I'll click on to Samsung UK. And here we can have a look at the ads that Samsung are currently running on Facebook. So these ones here are all video ads. Let scroll past them. We have an image add here. So that is an interesting design that we could look at. But let's keep scrolling down for now. Okay, so that is all of the ads that Samsung are running. Now let's have a look at grammar because I have seen loads of their ads pop up on Facebook. And here we go. So this is the one we want to look at. And now we can see the ads that they are currently running. So this is a good one to look at. And some more down here as well. They are pretty much all the exact same design. Okay, so let's go back to the top. And we'll have a look at this first add right here. So they have a gradient for the background, and then at the top of the design, they have their logo. And then they have a heading tags which is used to draw the viewer in, followed by a simple illustration of a laptop which is using their plugin. So we can use Canva to design something quite similar to this. So let's head back over to Canvas right now. And then we can either select a template or start from a completely blank file. I think I'm going to start from scratch. So I'm going to click on to this right here. And now we have created our project. So the first thing that I'm going to do is add a background. So I'm going to go to background down here, and I'm going to set it to the background as a gradient just like in the gradually add that we just looked at. So let's see if we can find a nice gradient on here. So for example, this one over here. And now I'm going to customize the color. So I'm going to click onto new color. And I'm just going to find a random color, which I think looks cold. This one here is okay, I think so I will select this color. So now we have a nice gradient in the background. The next step is to add a logo to the top of the design. So I think I'll just find a generic logo from the Elements tab. So we'll just type in Logo. And ideally we'd want a white text logo. So let's see what we can find. I think this Instagram one would do. So I'll make it a bit smaller. And then centroids at the top. There we go, that's great. And now what we need to do is add the Heading text. So I'll click on to heading right here. And let's say that we are creating an ad for Instagram. So we want to think of a suitable heading for Instagram. I think that the official Instagram tagline is capture and share the world's moment soldiers, right? That in now. And then I will make this box a bit smaller. And then I will center it. And I'll make the text smaller as well. And we also need to make the text white. There we go. And now I'm going to change the font as well. I think that a good font for this particular design will be Poppins. So output Poppins ANY here. And what is that? I think that the logo should be quite a bit smaller than this text. And then I was sent to them both together. There we go. So now what we need to do is add an illustration to the bottom of this design. So in order to find a great illustration, I'm going to use onDraw.com, which is this told right here. So to find this told, you need to go to onDraw dot co. And then once you are, hey, you want to click onto Browse now. And because I want to find an Instagram based illustration, I'm just going to search for Instagram and see what comes up for that. So you want to find an illustration which will look perfect for your ad. But you also want to make sure that it is the right color. In order to change the colors of these illustrations, you need to connect on today's color picker up here. And then simply pick any color you want. As you can see, you can literally select any color. I'll make it a bit lighter. And there we go. So I think that this would be a good color to use. And now I'm just going to select an illustration for my ad design. And I think I'll select this one right here. So I'll click onto it and then click Download SVG for your projects and save it to my computer. And now I'll go back to Canvas. And for me what I need to do is upload my illustration. So we'll click onto uploads just here. And then I'll go to upload media uploaded from device. And then I'll double-click onto the illustration that I just downloaded. So now that is being uploaded to my Canvas account. And I will simply click onto it. And there we go. It's now inside my project. So I was sent to this down here. And make it bigger. Make sure that it's centered. There we go. And now I'll put everything together a bit better. I will also reduce the width of this textbox so that it centers better. There we go. I'll bring these backup a little bit. And then I'll bring the tagline down a bit. And there we go. I think that because this is quite a wide design, we could in fact put the illustration on one side and then the text on the other side. Because I think that this could look quite a bit better. I think that is actually loads better. I'll just move the Instagram takes up a bit. And then recents or all of this makes sure that this icon is centered as well. So now what you need to do is retitle your project. I'll combine Facebook ad. And then I will enter to save that. And I'll close this menu justice so we can see it in full screen. And there we go. So the final thing you need to do is download the ad that you have just designed. So I'll click on to download up here, select your file type. I want PNG, and then click Download. It will now pop up your file manager. And you can rename your file and choose where you want to save your file. And then simply click save. Now you have designed and downloaded a Facebook ad using Canva. So I'll click onto it. And here we go. This is what we have created. I think that for the time it took us, it looks absolutely brilliant. So there we go. That is all for this video. I hope you enjoyed it and I will see you in the next one once again, thanks and goodbye. 31. Instagram Post Design Project: Do you want to be able to design amazing Instagram posts that will stop users scrolling past your posts and make them like and comment onto your posts while you're in the right place. In this video, I'm going to show you how to design Instagram posts using Canva. So let's get straight into it. First of all, within our Canvas dashboard, we want to click onto social media just here. And then what we want to do is click onto the very first design that has popped up, that is called an Instagram post design. So let's click on to this right here. And now what we need to do is find inspiration for our Instagram post. So as you can see right here, I have searched in Instagram for the hashtag business mindset. And I'm going to have a look at a few of these different Instagram posts. So these are all quite similar designs. What's I am going to show you how to do is create an Instagram post design using Canva that looks something like this. We have a main title at the top, six icons, and each icon has a bit of text underneath it. Then at the bottom there is also a logo, which we can add quite easily as well. So let's jump back into Canva. And the first thing that I'm going to do is set a background. So first of all, I'm going to set the background as a dark color. Let's say this just here. The color-code is 19, 19, 19. So that is quite easy to remember. So the next thing I'm going to do is add an effect on top of the background. So I'm going to do is go to photos over here. And I'm going to type in marble. And we're going to have a look at a few of these different options. I quite like this one down here. So I'm going to cover the background color. And then I'm going to change the transparency and lower. It's quite a bit. I think about five will probably be good. There we go. So now we have completed our background. So we have a dark background with a marble effect over the top of it. So the next thing that we need to do is add our main heading text to our Instagram post. So we're going to click onto text over here. And I'm going to click add a heading. And for this heading, what I'm going to do is type in six best online business ideas. So then we're going to move the text to the top. And I think that this gap between the two lines of text is too much. So I'm going to click up here to the spacing icon. And I'm going to decrease this line height to 1.2. There we go. I think that that looks much better then, like in the original Instagram posts, we had a look at the bottom line of texts was a different color. It was actually green. But in this example I'm going to set it as yellow. So we're going to do a black and yellow fame. There we go. That looks great. And now we need to add six pieces of information into this design. So this is going to be sakes online business ideas. So for the Sikhs, best online business ideas, I am going to put flip websites, affiliate marketing, right? E-books, make YouTube videos, sell online courses, and finally, create a blog. So first of all, what we need to do is find a relevant icon for each of these ideas. So in order to do that, I am going to click onto elements over here. And first of all, I'm going to type in website for the first one, which is flip websites. And I think that this one down here could look quite good. So I will select this one. And I'm just going to roughly put it where it's going to be. And the second one is going to be affiliate marketing. So first of all, I'm going to type in cell, see what comes up for that. This one here could be good. So we'll put this in here for now. We can change it later if we decide it doesn't fit in. And then we have rights e-books. So for this one I'm going to type in book. This one here could be great. So I will bring this into our design. And next we have make YouTube videos. So for this, I'm just going to put in the YouTube icon. This one here is good. And next we have sell online courses. So for this one I'm going to type in video. This one here could be good. But we might want to change it later because is quite similar to the YouTube one. And finally we have create a blog. So I will type in blog. Let's see what comes up here. Okay, I don't think that any of these look too good. So I'm going to type in, right? Okay, This one just take it could be good. So let's try that. So now I'm going to do is make each of these icons smaller. I think about this big could be good. So I'll make them all the same size as that one. We have this one. Then we go and this one. And we just need to do it for each of the icons until we've got them all roughly the same size. Okay, so now we want to center these ones here. And for the ones next to them, we just want to bring them to the right and left. Like so. So that is a decent for now. And now I'm going to do is make it so that all of these icons are the same color as our text up here. So yellow. So fast I would try this one up here. I'm going to make each of the different elements yellow. And I'm going to leave the main block white. So that actually is reasonable. And then we have this one here. There we go. And then this one. Next we have the YouTube icon, but I'm pretty sure it's only going to change the little play icon in the middle. And the bulk of it is still going to be red. Yep. So we might have to make a change there. And then we have this one. For this icon, we can not even change the color. And then finally, this one down here doesn't really look that great once it's all in yellow. So we are going to have to change some of these icons for sure. So as you can see here, I have spent a few minutes finding better icons to use in this Instagram post design. I have split up the footage so that you can see what I'm doing without having to watch me spend time finding different icons. But to keep it simple or you need to do here is find relevant icons for your post. Customize the color for each icon so that fits into your fame. In my case, that is yellow. Make sure that they are all exactly the same size and position them into your design. This will take you a few minutes, but make sure you do it right and take your time. Okay, So it makes sure that all of your icons are the same size. I have done that with the top row up here. And I want to do that with this way down here as well. So first of all, I'm just going to bring the YouTube one and make sure that it's the same size. In fact, it needs to be a bit bigger. There we go. And I was about Diane, just there. And then we have this one here that fits in perfectly as well. There we go. And finally, this one over here. There we go. So I'm going to do is close this panel here, and I'm going to group them in twos. So first of all, I'm going to group these two here. So then I'm going to make this icon a little bit bigger. And I'm going to make sure this one is entered by this one. And I'll group these two here. And then I'm going to group these final two as well. But first, I'm going to make this one a bit bigger. I think about there is okay. And make sure it is centered below the icon that is above it. So now I'm going to put these ones over to the right, just here. And I'm going to bring these ones over to the left. And then I'm going to make sure that these two are centered. Okay, there we go. So we have our six icons in place. Now we need to do is add the text below each of them. So for this first one, it was flipped websites. So I'm gonna go to text, add a heading. First of all, make it quite a bit smaller. And I'm going to type in flip websites that we go. And now I will move it below this one here. I think I can make it a bit bigger in fact. And I'm going to make it so that it goes to two lines. Fantastic. There we go. I'll make it a bit bigger again. And there. So I think that is about perfect for this first one. Now, the second one was affiliate marketing. So I will duplicate this text and put it below this second icon. And I'm going to type in affiliate marketing. There we go. Fantastic. Let's make sure that it is centered and aligned. Lovely. And now I will duplicate this first one again and bring it over here. There we go. And for this one here it is going to say write eBooks. Lovely. Make sure that it is all aligned. That is perfect. Let's duplicate this first one again and align it. And this one is going to say, make YouTube videos. So let's just put this into a few different lines. Like so, there we go, fantastic. Center the text. And then I'm going to duplicate it. And for this one it is going to say so online courses. Perfect. Center it again. There we go. And for this final one down here, it is going to say create a blog. And there we go, so that all fits in nicely. Now the one thing that I'm not happy with is this one over here. I think the icons too big and the text doesn't really fit in Iowa. So I'm going to try and make the text fitting a bit better. That is a bit better. Yeah, that actually improves it quite a lot. And that doesn't make the icon seem so bad either. But I am going to ungroup these two icons and make this one a bit smaller. Just because it seems a bit crazy. And it didn't really fit in with everything else. But now I think that it works and fits in very nicely. So I'm actually going to go and ungroup all of these icons now. And instead of grouping the icons together, I'm going to group the icon and its text like so. So each icon has its own text grouped with it. Lovely. So now I'm going to once again make sure that everything is aligned properly. So first of all, I'm going to select this one here, makes sure that it is completely centered and bring it up to about here. And I'm going to do the same with the one below it. There we go. And then I'm going to align the ones on the right. Fantastic. Fantastic. There we go. And I'll do the ones on the left as well. That fits in just there. So then I'll bring this one to the left a bit as well. And there we go. So we have our sakes online business ideas. I'll move these bottom three down a little bit. And I think this now looks absolutely perfect. So like I just said, we have our six online business ideas. And we could also add a logo or a website address to the bottom of our Instagram post design. I will just add an icon. So I will go to uploads and I'll click onto this one, make it, it's quite a bit smaller. And put it down here out of the way. And now if somebody steals your post, you have your logo on there. So other people know that the content has been stolen. So it's quite a good idea to have your logo in there somewhere. So there we go. We have successfully designed a very nice looking Instagram post. I am really happy with it, and I think that it looks absolutely fantastic. So I'm just going to rename the project. So Instagram post. And then we can simply download it as a PNG and upload it to Instagram. So that is all for this video. I hope you enjoyed it and I hope that you learned something new. I will see you in the next one once again, thanks and goodbye. 32. Video Project: Now I'm going to show you how you can create videos using canva. Yes, that's right. You can now create videos in Canva. The feature isn't completely perfect yet, but you can do some awesome things with it. So let's get straight into it. First of all, that you want to create a video project within Canvas. And as you can see in the middle of my screen, I have a video project that I can click on to right here. But if this Project type is not on your screen straightaway, you can either go to this menu and click on to video, and then select the video project on the left just here. Or alternatively, you can go to the search box up here and then type in video. And now we have the video project that we can create. So what I'm going to do is click on today's video project right here. And what this will do is create a video project, which will start the process for us to create our video. So once you're here, you will see some different things from normal. So for example, down here you will see the pages which I like to call the scenes for your video. So within Canada, if you want to create a video, basically with the video creator, you'll be able to create loads of different scenes and then export all of them together as an MP4 file. I quite like the way this works as it allows you to edit your video on a scene by scene process. So once you are in your project, the first thing that you need to do is select a template. Now as you can see on the left over here, we have many different categories of templates. So we have educational reviews, explainer videos, and so, so many more different categories. So what you want to do is find the relevant category for your video. And then within that category you want to find a nice template. What I'm going to do is create a real estate video promoting a house that is for sale. So I'm going to go into the real estate's category by clicking CEO. And now we can view all of the different real estate video templates. So this is the house that we are going to be creating a video for. It is a ten bedroom detached house in Kensington, London. And if you have a look at some of these pictures, you can see it looks absolutely incredible. So I have gone and downloaded all of the pictures for this property. And I'm going to use the pictures along with the info for the property and turn it into a nice real estate Video. So let's go back to Canvas. So I'm going to select a template to that I think will look good for this particular property. There are, of course, many for us to choose from. And also with these video templates, if you click onto them, you can have a look at the different scenes that are already created as well. So I think I'm going to select this video template right here. So I'll click onto it. And then as you can see, we have six premade scenes. So I'm going to click Apply All it seeks pages. And here we go. So we have seen one. So 34. Five and the final scene, number six. Before we make any changes at all to this video, what I'm going to do is click play up here so we can preview the video. And I'm going to mute it. And now we can just have a quick look at how the video plays. So of course I only have pictures. I don't actually have video content that I can add. So it's going to look like a bit more of a basic video compared to this template. But when you are creating your own video, you should have your own content which you're going to add into it. For example, images, videos, and so on. So I must say it is very important that you have content that you want to add into your video. Otherwise it may end up quite plain. So I'll click out of this and I'm going to collapse this side panel. And the first thing that I'm going to do is upload the photos of the property. So click onto uploads and then upload media, upload from device. And I'm going to select all of these images and then click open. I'll just let each of these images finish uploading. And then foreseen one, I want to use the picture of the front of the property. So I'll drag it in and replace the video which is already there. There we go. And with this particular image, this text is not really readable. So I'm going to click on to it and add an effect. I think that maybe shadow could be good or maybe even left. As this effect makes it pop out from the image a little bit. So I'll leave it like this for now. And then of course we have some other takes in this template. Well, so on this first scene we have the main for sale text, which I'm going to leave alone for now. And then we have the listing details below it. And then on the very right we have the listing number and also the year down here as well. Now of course you can customize this to say anything you want. You could have your website address down aside, down here. And then, for example, where we have this property details, what I am going to do is paste in the location for the property. So I'm gonna go back to the first CEO page. And I'm going to copy this text right here. And go back to Canvas. And I'm going to paste it straight back in to this little text box here. There we go. And then below it, I'm also going to type in for sale. Just so they know it's for sale in case they didn't see this massive text up here. So then we can also change the color of this block. So you can make it anything you want it to be. But this template does have a fame. So if you're gonna change the color of this block, you're also going to want to change the color of this text over here. And also the colors on other scenes as well. So now let's have a look at Scene two. Here we have the kitchen. So I'm going to drag over the picture of the kitchen. There we go. That is a very nice kitchen indeed. So now to keep with the new theme, I will also change the color of this block just here. And once again, you can change this text here as well. So I'll leave this scene like this for now, and I'll go to the next sane. Here we have the garden. So I'm going to put in the picture for the rooftop balcony. There we go. That looks absolutely incredible. And I'm also going to change the color of this text over here. If I had a video of this rooftop balcony, it would be even nicer if I could put that video in, adjust here. But unfortunately, I do not have a video to put here. So this picture will have to do. So. Now let's go to the fourth scene. So first of all, I'm going to change the color of this main background block. There we go. And this scene is covering the property features. So what I'm going to do is put the image of the indoor pole at just here. So I'll delete this video and I will drag in the poll image. And I'll make it bigger. And I will paste it down here like this. I think that looks good. I could bring it down a bit more. There we go. And then I'm going to type in some of the details for the property. So there are ten bedrooms and also ten bathrooms. There are four reception rooms. So our change utility to reception. And there's now takes up a little bit too much space. So have to make the box a bit bigger. As far as I'm aware, there is just one kitchen. I will replace two parking spaces, private parking. And I will put this as a bullet point. Below this. I will also add the swimming pole. As of course we have the picture of it right here. And finally, I will add that there is a roof. Terrorists. There we go. There is also much more to this property as well, but this video is just an example. So I will leave it like this for now. So then let's move on to the fifth scene. And in this scene, I'm going to bring in the image of the cinema room. There we go. That looks brilliant. And then I'm going to do is change the color of this block. Change the text Collaborate here. And this text down here as well. And also there's text on the right. And then we need to add in some information about the property. So instead of this text that is already here, I'm going to go back to the property listing and go to the description. And what we're gonna do is copy this paragraph just here and then go back to Canvas. And I'm simply going to paste in this description adjust here. There we go. Fantastic. In order to fit this last word in, I'm going to make this box a little bit wider. There we go. So now that is good for this particular slide. I'm actually going to customize this block a little bit so that we can see the cinema screen in this image. So I'm going to make this block quite a bit wider. And then I'm going to move the whole block down. About here. Looks good in my opinion. So now we can actually see the cinema screen in the photo. So I think that is much better. And now let's go over to the final scene of the video. Here we go. So once again, I'm going to change all of the colors. So this block over here, this text, and these icons and text down here as well. That's brilliant. And now I'm going to do is add a pitch to the final sane. And I really think that the picture of the stairway is the best one for this final scene. So I'll drag it in and I'm going to double-click onto the image to reposition it in the crop. All the way to the left, I think will be good. So we can see the left side of the image, which is where the stairway is. And then where it says get in touch. I'm going to write in enquire. And below this text, I'm going to remove the social icons and also remove this bottom text as well. And I will put the website address in this first box. And I will also center this here. There we go. And in the second text box, I will enter a random phone number. There we go. And I will send to that as well. Okay, so that's centered. We would just need to resize this website, blog and center that too. So let's make both of these a bit bigger. Recenter them. And there we go, that's great. So let's go back to slide one. And now let's play the video that we have created. So click play up here, and I'll mute it. And here we go. So this is the video that we have just created. I will just let it play for three seconds long. That we are going to do now is retitle this project. So a video project. There we go. Sorry, we have successfully created a video using Canva. 33. Add Music To Your Video: Now what I'm going to do is show you how to add music to your video. Now because we used a template for this particular video, there was actually music that has already been added, but it's what we're going to do is change the music and the video and then download our project. So I'm gonna start by removing the music which is already in this video. So I'm going to click on to this just here. And as you can see, this is the music track. So I'm just going to click onto this Delete icon. And now we're going to add some new music into our video. So let's click onto music on the left, just here. So from here we just need to find a track which will fit into a video. So I'm going to scroll through these different categories. Here we go. Happy could be good. So let's preview this track. Okay, that's not too bad. We can think about that one and maybe come back to it. Let's have a look at this one down here called Wisdom in the sun. Okay, I'll pause that. And now let's add it to our project. So in order to add this drag to our project, I'm just going to click onto it and quickly pause it. And there we go. So this particular track has been added to our project. So now if I preview the video again, you can hear this new track in the background. So as you can see, that is how you add music to a video in Canvas. What we want to do now is download our video. So in order to do that, we want to click the Download video button at the top right. But as you can see, we actually have an element in here which we need to pay for. So I'm going to remove it. I think that it's this icon right here. So I'll click onto it and then click Delete. I'm going to have a look at the rest of the scenes to see if it's used in any of them as well. I don't see it anywhere here. It's definitely not in this one. It's in this one just here. So I will delete this as well. It's not in this one IVR and I don't see it in this one. So let's try and download our video again. There we go. So we can now download it. We want to download it as an mp4. So select MP4, and then we want old pages. So we're going to select all pages. Now the final thing that we need to do is click download. So do that right now. And the video will start downloading right here. Give it a couple of minutes, and then it will finish downloading. There we go. The video has now finished downloading. So what you want to do is choose where on your computer you want to save it. So and then you want to name your file. And once you're happy with both of those things, simply click Save just here. So there we go. We have successfully built a video in Canvas, added some music to it, and exported it to our computer as well. So that is all for this video. I hope you enjoyed it and I will see you in the next one once again, thanks and goodbye.
