Supercharge your content creation with Canva

From video and photo editor to content planner, here’s a tool that every content creator must know

Creating visually appealing content can take up so much of your time. Whether you’re a freelancer serving multiple clients, a YouTube creator committed to sharing only the best content online, or an influencer sharing highlights of your day, it can be a bit overwhelming to take care of everything–from designing to editing and even up to posting.

Online tools like Canva can help you save time while still creating eye-catching social media content.

Canva is an online visual communications platform with a mission to empower everyone in the world to design anything and publish anywhere. Featuring a simple drag-and-drop user interface and a vast range of templates ranging from presentations, social media graphics, posters, apparel to videos, plus a huge library of fonts, stock photography, illustrations, video footage, and audio clips, anyone can take an idea and create something beautiful with Canva.

From TikTok Ads and YouTube videos, to workplace and business videos, you can easily create and customize videos on Canva with features like:

  • Scene-Based Editor: Simplify video creation with a scene-based approach that feels familiar to building presentation slides, to eliminate the learning curve.

  • Single Layer Timeline on Desktop and Mobile: Scenes can easily be re-ordered, lengthened, or split using the timeline, to turn individual scenes into a story. Cinematic transitions enable a perfect flow between segments, and editing is optimized for mobile apps and browsers, removing the need for powerful hardware.

  • Multiple Audio Tracks: The video timeline now supports multiple audio tracks, whether uploaded to Canva or dragged from the media library, to enhance videos with music, sound effects, and narration.

  • Screen and Camera Recording: Users can now record footage from a camera, screen, or Chrome tab, perfect for video messages and tutorials.

Canva Pro’s Magic Resize also helps you save time by creating one design, then resizing it for different platforms.
