About This Class


One of the best hacks you can use is to use templates for social media posts, such as Instagram posts. Templates are great because they give your feed a branded, professional appearance, and you can make batches of them at a time.

I was recently making myself a batch of templates with Canva for Making Something Rad, and I realized it would be a great tutorial for others as well.

There are a bunch of amazing Instagram templates available on the internet, but you usually need Photoshop to use them. A lot of people I know don't own Photoshop and don't know how to use it, so they are missing out on the benefit of having these great templates to make social media easier.

Luckily, Canva is free and easy to use, even for beginners!

In this tutorial, I'm going to show you how to make a set of 8 social media templates. 4 of the templates are inspirational quotes, and 4 of them are picture holders. They all use the same format, but rely on using a cohesive color palette to make them look like a set. (I'll show you how to get a color palette in the tutorial too!)

It's easy to swap out pictures or paste in new quotes, so you can use the templates over and over.

I'm obsessed with Canva - I love how it makes desig...
