This is a list of some of the unique ways to grow your followers and maintain your social media and website backups and more.
Canva has always been a popular graphic maker and now they keep expanding in areas that most don't. They have a huge selection of premade templates, fonts, colors, and more not to mention the tutorials on designing them. I love to use Canva over PicMonkey even. Canva has a lot more to offer and continues to grow with their designs and most importantly I should add is their information on their blog can help you become a graphic designer if you want to. That being said, here's a new addition to their collection of templates and designs is "meme generator."
What is a meme? is an activity, concept, catchphrase, or piece of media that spreads often as mimiory or for humorous purposes from person to person via internet. Memes have been around longer then the internet though, by simply drawing a funny picture and making a humorous comment or saying on it.(source). Nowadays you have advanced ways to make them visually made and they can be made from your own photo, using (of course) templates such as canva, and many other ways. I recommend using Canva for basically everything!! It's got everything you can possibly need for any kind of visual graphics. It's my number pick!!

The BEST FREE photo editor
This is filled with so many tools and effects that I have been trying to edit my new photographs for my new post and gallery that it has taken me a day to edit 3 if even that.

Create Quotes for social media posts
To create quotes and sayings with already made templates. No uploading needed. You can add your own quotes with the text options they have.
A great tool to make anything from social media, newsletters, posters, and flyers etc. and you can choose from a gallery of premade templates. But the great news is you can customize each one with adding or moving from anywhere to text, clip art, shapes, and format each one with a multiple options that are too many to tell you. Another great thing is it's a Google Chrome extension! Here's a fast newsletter I only changed a few things. paid and free.
You can upload your own photo make a poster out of it. I loved making some on my photo editor app but I only had a few choices. Here you have a wider selection to make quotes or sayings as a poster.
Upload pictures (Only 5 at once and add your custom watermark to them to protect your copyrights. This is a great idea for my photographs and certain graphics I make that I don't want anyone to sell or use in any form that isn't giving me credit for or protecting my photos I actually think this is a very nice, easy, and fast way to watermark your photographs. What do you think of which one is better as a name for my watermark?
Coming up: My trip to find hidden spots along the southern Oregon Coastal Trail. A new gallery to showcase the best photographs I captured using different techniques that are unlike most of my photographs.
