To get the most out of this book

For this book to have the greatest impact, it would be best if you had a basic understanding of Canva and what the platform is used for.

You may already have a free Canva account set up and can create a basic design using a template.

You may know how to add an image, add text boxes, and change the color of fonts, but beyond that, you are looking to learn more.

Software/hardware covered in the book

Operating system requirements

The Canva platform

Any operating system will work

An internet connection is required

A computer, laptop, or tablet will work best

Canva Pro

A Canva Pro subscription will be required to use any of the Pro features

For certain aspects of this book, you will need to have a Canva Pro account, for example, to use the Background Remover tool or the vast majority of the Smartmockups tool, as mentioned in Chapter 3, Tools and Features for Using Elements and Images. To use any other Pro elements and images, a Pro account is required. I have tried to include as much content as possible that is available on a Free account.

After you have completed this book, I would love for you to continue on your Canva journey, creating graphics and growing your business. I have a free Facebook group for Canva users, full of support and advice, that you are welcome to join:
