How to USE CANVA for free: the ESSENTIALS (2020)

You can start your cool T-shirt design for free using either Canva.com or Placeit.net or even Envato Elelements. Alternatively, if you prefer using a stand alone software you can download to your computer without eating up your wallet, then, my favorite is Art Text Design, or simply check out Envato Marketplace for some products.

You can start your cool T-shirt design for free using either Canva or Placeit or even Envato Elelements. Alternatively, if you prefer using a stand alone software you can download to your computer without eating up your wallet, then, my favorite is Art Text Design for Mac, though you may still use softwares like WordArt or simply check out Envato Marketplace for some cool and affordable products that may be used for the same purpose. You may also use free print-on-demand websites like Teepublic to sell items with your artwork designs printed on them and make some cool money from that.

  1. 📢If you enjoyed this tutorial, I’m sure you will love our RonDi Bootcamp 👉 http://bit.ly/RonDi We created 10 mini Canva Courses, each containing a hands-on project that will help you grow your business. Aaaand, they will cost you absolutely nothing! Click on that link to enroll now

    1. Diana used the latest version of Canva to date. What happens is that she is a Canva Certified Creative and might have access to newest features or UI that might not be rolled out to all users yet.

    2. Your Canva version is not current, the menus and elements are not the same so you can’t follow the tutorial. One example, you have ‘templates’ under ‘all your designs’ on the left menu bar, my Canva shows ‘brand kit’ and ‘photos’ is under the ‘Discover’ menu. I don’t know why someone would post a tutorial that is out of date and cannot be followed step by step, would be good if this were current.

    1. Glad it was helpful Marcia!
      Make sure to sub to the channel for new tutorials every week: bit.ly/YTcanva ✨

  2. i searched it and it has “use canva for 30 days free” and “get canva free” which one should i click?

    1. Ideally you’ll have a good resolution (crisp image, not pixelated) but a light file (in term of file size). So it all depends on the compression.

  3. Hi, I designed a youtube thumbnail but when I go to download my work it wants me to pay in order to download? Is it not free to download your completed work?

    1. Hey James,

      downloading your work is free, but the reason why Canva prompts you to pay is that you must be using a Pro element in your design.
      The illustrations and photos with a little crown 👑 on them are PRO elements.
      Try replacing the Pro elements for Free ones and you design will download.

  4. Is Canva still free? I tried registering yesterday and it tells me I have to pay a $1 to download images. 🤷🏻‍♀️ so it seems I am obliged to pay for pro. Can anyone verify this please? Thank you 🙏🏼

    1. @bon figueroa up at the top of the screen you should see 3 lines to be able to filter. You can then check off free, that way it will only show the free images.

    2. @Naturally Lizzie How do you select the free features like images? all of them have a crown that means you have to pay. I don’t think its free.

    3. Canva is free and will remain free forever.
      There are some elements that cost money though (photos, illustrations). Paying for Pro gives you access to all these elements in the library (those with the crown) + other cool Pro features.

    4. It depends on the image you select. If it has a crown on it you would need the pro version or pay to use it. There are a lot of other images that are free though so you’d just have to select one of those ones. Hope that helps.

  5. Hi, Diana: did you create the animations (like-subscribe-notify) in the end screen in Canva or?

  6. This is really cool! I’m using Canva for creating my art and I like the design. Thank you Diana and Canva Team 😀

  7. Hi, thanks for all the tips!
    Once I have a image or video saved on my PC. How do I load it to instagram from my PC?
    I’m a grandmother and a newbie to instagram and canva. Sadly with short term memory and I require a step by step tutorial or instructions.
    I tried inssist but it didn’t work. Any other suggestions?
    Thanks again Diana

  8. I love your accent! And I’m definitely going to join your Facebook group. Thank you for such an informative video.

    1. Not sure what you are referring to, but you should only be prompted to pay if you are using premium elements.
