How to make a Twitter cover using Canva

Hello and welcome to another tutorial from the Clickvoyagers.

Today I will show you how to make a Twitter header using Canva’s preset designs but also using your own image.

Let’s start by using Canva’s presets.

Go to www.Canva.com and click on Twitter header:

If you can’t locate the above option from the start page of Canva use the search function:

You will then be forwarded to this screen where you have a selection of headers on the left and your empty canvas on the right.

Select an image from the left column and it will appear on your Canva.

Then you can edit the text by selecting it and writing the title of your choice.

Additionally, you have some text editing options on the top, where you can change the font, the size, make the text bold, etc.

Then you are ready. Now if you click on Download on the top right corner you will able to download your Twitter header and upload it on Twitter.

It is that easy!

If you want to use your own image you can do so by following these steps.

Select the twitter header option like previously.

Upload your own image by going to the Upload tab on the left side menu:

Then you can add your own text by clicking on the Text tab on the left menu:

and if you want a good source for free stock images I recommend pexels.com. I’m not affiliated with them but I use this website a lot and I think it’s a great database of nice free stock images. Highly recommended.

How to use Canva to make a Facebook cover – a tutorial for beginners

Canva is an amazing platform that helps us create graphics for our social media. In this article, I will show you how it works and how you can make your own Facebook cover in just a few easy steps. After you have finished this article you will be able to do many more than just a Facebook cover.

This is not a sponsored post, I use Canva a lot for many of my graphics and I think it’s a great tool that it is worth sharing.

By the way, if you are interested I have written another tutorial where I show you how to make a Twitter header using CanvaΒ 

How to start

Let us get familiar with the interface. It’s very user-friendly and intuitive and it’s easy to create and design something for your social media things πŸ™‚

The following is a print screen from my Canva’s homepage.

You can use the search function Or you can click on the “Create a design” button:

Haha, how do you like my hand-drawn arrow?

If you click on Create a design then you are presented with a selection of choices, like Instagram post, Instagram story, Facebook story, Facebook cover, etc.

So let’s make a Facebook cover.

Once you click on it you are forwarded to your canvas πŸ™‚ and with a nice pre-sets selection on your left side column:

You can select any of those (Free and non-Free graphics) to create a nice cover for your Facebook page.

I chose the coffee themed one because I love coffee πŸ™‚

Once you click on your favourite graphic, then the graphic gets transferred onto the canva where you can edit it further.

Pro tip: I think Canva has a nice selection of presets so if you are a beginner you can start using their pre-designed ones before you get comfortable making your own.

So let’s see how we can edit the text on the cover:

As you see you have options on the top for editing the text, which you can select and edit, re-write, change the font, the colour, etc.

Once you are done, all you have to do is click the “download” button and save your graphic to your hard drive. And then you can use that graphic to update your facebook cover.

It really can’t get easier than that πŸ™‚

That’s pretty much the procedure and that’s how it works for most of the graphics, at least for the ones I have been making. I have been using Canva a lot to make Pinterest images and the process is pretty much the same.
