Another question I often get relates to photo editing. What is the best online photo editor?
The probability is high that Adobe Photoshop has the world’s best imaging and photo editing software. But it is not free and it has quite a steep learning curve.
There are a number of free online photo editors, one of the best-known being Canva. Besides being free, Canva is easy to use.
With Canva‘s drag-and-drop feature and layouts to design, you can share and print business cards, logos, presentations and more. It has many features – you can create:
- Web Banner
- Photo Collage
- Social Graphic
- Poster and so much more on your own or with your Team.
This is not a tutorial on canva. The objective is to show how easy it is to edit an image you already got:
How do I edit the image below to have 2 lines of text that reads: ‘Terrier dog enjoying driver’s seat’? I would like the text to be in blue and at the top and centre of the image. To view the edited image please scroll down to the bottom of this post.
Go to https://www.canva.com/ and register (click on any screenshot below to enlarge it).
What do you do? Choose one.
Invite your Team (you don’t actually need to invite anyone should you not be working in a group)
Choose what you would like to create
or just click ‘More’ if you want to edit an existing image > on the page that opens click ‘Use custom dimensions’ >
On the page that opens, enter the width and height of your image. In my case, let’s assume I would like to edit my 1024 x 768px image >
Click ‘Design’ > on the page that opens click ‘Uploads’ > click ‘Upload your own image’
Click on the image you have just uploaded > click ‘Text’
Click or drag to add text (I chose ‘Add subheading) > Type text: for example ‘Terrier dog enjoying the driver’s seat’.
Should you need to edit further… go ahead and enjoy!
On the top right hand corner of the page click ‘Download’ > on the drop-down menu click ‘Download’
You can also access your photo on Android or iphone
Open your download > click the ‘…’ > on the drop-down, click ‘Save as…’
Go to your folder and open the image
The example above was just very basic editing. Canva offers many useful features and you can do very fine editing should you need to.
And that is it ladies and gentlemen. Trust the aforementioned is of some help. Cheers!
