Discover Your Inner Graphic Designer with Canva

Use Canva to Create Your Own Images with Ease & Discover Your Inner Graphic Designer!

I recently wrote this post titled “Have You Discovered Canva Yet?” in which I discussed how easy it is to use this graphic design tool (Canva) to create your own images.

Cover your a** with Canva!The main point of my post was to point out that “Due to copyright laws we can’t just click and save any photo we admire, then use it as if it were our own.”

I also mentioned that “the software comes with quite a few “free” images for your use but if you can’t find what you’re looking for, you can upload them from your own personal photos, other sources such as GraphicStock, or you have the option of paying Canva’s fee to purchase one of theirs.

So why am I writing about this AGAIN?  It has to do with the seriousness of the issue.  I just discovered an article that I thought I’d share as it’s very well written and most informative.  Blogger Beware: You CAN Get Sued For Using Photos You Don’t Own on Your Blog by Roni Loren.  Roni has done all bloggers a BIG favor by sharing her insight on the subject.  I highly recommend you take a look.

By the way, have YOU taken a look at Canva yet?  Kinda fun, isn’t it?

P.S.  Thanks to Kelvin Ringold for sharing the “Blogger Beware” article on Facebook, which is where I stumbled on it.
