If you are just starting out with designing online, don’t worry. There are plenty of beginner-friendly online tools and platforms to facilitate your navigation through the world of design. I’ve personally benefitted from the tools these websites provide and use them to this day.
Canva is a website catered to designers of all skill levels. Some features that Canva presents to all users include Photos, Elements, and Filters. Hundreds of fonts are categorized according to the style you are going for, and your work is able to be saved in multiple formats.
Canva comes in a free version, but for more access to their tools such as Background Remover, a Canva Pro subscription is needed. If you do not have the budget for a subscription, the free version is still very inclusive.
There may come a time where you might need to use an image, but the only thing holding it back is its background. Luckily, Remove.bg is a website that uses powerful background removal technology – all for free. Yes, that’s right! As long as you are not using your images for commercial purposes, Remove.bg is the perfect tool to carefully remove the background from the main subject in your image.
3- Facebook Creator Studio
You will need a Facebook account for this one (if it wasn’t obvious already!). Instagram is owned by Facebook, and Facebook Creator Studio makes it possible to see all of your linked Facebook and Instagram accounts all in one place.
If you are a regular poster on Instagram, you will benefit from the options to schedule your posts, save them for later, and even view the stats of each post without scrolling on your Instagram page endlessly.
Scheduling posts can be very useful for busy content creators who design in bulk and do not want to worry about posting something on the day they intend their audience to view their content. Do it days ahead of time and forget about it!
