Canva (www.canva.com) is a rather clever web-based graphic design system that makes it really easy to create flyers, posters, album covers, infographics, invitations, business cards, book covers and just about any other design you want.
Choose from a large library of designs, then change the text and layout as you wish. When you're finished, download your masterpiece to your PC and it's ready to use.
What's extra clever is Canva's pricing model. All of the basic features and designs are free, as are the layouts. And there are hundreds of images that you can choose from, to drag and drop onto your design.
There are also more than a million additional images which you can also choose from, which cost $1 each. You can try them out during the design phase, and you only pay once you finalise and download your finished artwork.
As long as you're happy with the free images, symbols etc, Canva is completely free to use, and it's available both as a web site and an iPad app. So if you need to design something, or you just want to see whether you could actually do so, here's your chance to find out. And because it's all online, there's no software to download to your computer. Just go to www.canva.com and get started.
