Canva is an often debated tool in the online design world - most love it, some hate it.

There may be more 'professional' (i.e. - adobe) ways to edit your images + create graphics and resources, we turn to Canva almost every single day, for a variety of reasons.

1. It's SO user friendly

2.) The FREE version of Canva offers many great tools

And 3.) It's easily accessible across many different devices

Keep reading for our top 3 Canva hacks, and let us know your own favorites over on Instagram!

Removing Backgrounds

You may be thinking "why do I need to remove a background?"

But learning how to remove a background in Canva is truly a game-changer - whether you're looking to clean up a product photo or switch out the background for something else, this is a hack you want to keep up your sleeve.

Drop the background of product images, images of yourself, or any other image that you'd like to feature in a new way. This works best with images that have a solid background. See a few examples of how we've used this feature below.

Update Outdated Tech Mockups

There are SO many great tech mockup images out there - eh em, including in our very own Image Library - but with the speed of tech updates, iPhones, laptops and desktops can quickly become outdated.

And we get it, no one wants to run or market a modern business with a clunky piece of tech, but there's no reason to let those images go to waste!

With Canva, you can easily revitalize outdated tech images and mockups by simply updating the old, last-century iPhone or iPad pictured.

Read our blog post on this for a step-by-step on how to update outdated tech images using Canva.

This may be one of our very favorite hacks!


Save Your Brand Color Palette

Did you know you can create a Brand Kit within Canva, including a brand color palette and brand fonts?


This Canva feature makes creating content so much easier. It allows you to easily access the correct brand colors each time you create a new piece of content.

This is HUGE - especially for our freelance or marketing ladies working with multiple clients and brands at a time.
