I struggled for ages to find somewhere where I could make great headers for my blog posts without the benefits of Photoshop and other expensive software. I have used Pixlr for ages and yes, that does get you so far but it wasn’t great. One day I would love to afford and learn about Photoshop but for now I have discovered an app that I literally cannot live without!
Josée posted a great collection of her favourite apps for bloggers (where I embarrassed myself by getting so excited that I started downloading the apps and didn’t read what she said properly) where she mentioned Canva.
I immediately checked it out and I have used Canva for every header of mine since and some of the images in my posts also. I have definitely seen an improvement in them and I am really excited about making more and trying out the different templates they provide. I know they are not yet perfect (I still need to use Canva a lot more and experiment with what it offers) but I am so much happier with how they appear on my blog. It’s a massive improvement from when I wrangled with Paint… oh dear
You can use Banner, Twitter Header, YouTube Art, Facebook Cover and more which provide you with so many options when making headers for your blog. I would also recommend Pixlr if you want an editing/graphic website that is easy to navigate and works online to make headers as has been a reliable place for me for the past 5 months.
If you know any great blogging apps that I should check out, let me know below!
