Is it possible to Create, Edit, Fix & Add Effects to your Images INSIDE Your WordPress Blog?
Social Media has gone Image Crazy and there are several excellent tools available for creating images for your Headers, Branding pics, Quotes and actually anything… but here's a funky one that works inside your wordpress blog!
What comes first… The Images or the Blog?
I guess that depends on how the inspiration strikes, and I find it works both ways. But, however the conception starts, I've always found that writing a blog post is one issue, and sourcing, creating and perfecting your images has been a totally separate avenue of work.
And, although this is a bit of an inconvenience, it is the way it has always been, and of course, we have all found our image creation sources to work around this downfall in the wordpress blog.
Lets face it… we can upload an image and place it into a blog, and that is a fairly limited application for any wordpress image lover. So, I think we all agree that the image/media features are rather grim for such a fantastic blogging platform.
So, I have installed… and am awesomely blown over by this plugin, CanvaKala, which is low priced. Created by Ankur, Jai and Raul, who you may recognise!
This is what it does…
- Add to any WP Site in 30 seconds
- Finds 2 Million+ Images – Instantly for your use.
- Adds a Full Photoshop like Editor to your site.
- Apply Instagram like Filters to all your images – in 1 Click.
- Adds 100+ Special Effects and Google WebFonts
- Create & Edit Unlimited Images – with LAYERS Support
Watch CanvaKala In Action…
When you click on the Button within your dashboard, you see this screen… and proceed to create your image… the video below gives you a short run-through…
When you have created your images, you can insert them into your post, add them to your media gallery and download them if you wish to re-use them for social media marketing.
To Summarize CanvaKala…
#1 Finds you 2 Million+ Royalty-Free images from 4 TOP SOURCES
Finding the right image for your blog content or website can be hard. It could sometime even take hours to pick the one that fits your site the best. Scouring 100s of websites is not a good idea (or the best use of your time) that’s why we made it EXTREMELY SIMPLE – 1 click search that finds you over 2 million images right inside your WordPress site.
#2 1-Click Crop, Resize, Rotate and Edit
You may hardly use the images you find online exactly in the same size on your content pages – you need to MAKE IT FIT. That’s why we added a quick 1-click edit feature that makes it extremely simple for you to get the right size/shape of the image you want.
#3 FULL Photoshop Style EDITOR
The #1 feature that makes this plugin a must-have for every WordPress site, the full featured editor lets you create, edit, re-touch, optimize and add effects to any number of images you want – just see our DEMO and you’ll see how simple and extremely effective this is.
#4 UNLIMITED LAYERS Support inside the Editor
Never before has any other WordPress photo editor had the support for Unlimited LAYERS just like Photoshop which lets you do advanced editing tasks and create complex images super-fast.
#5 20+ Instagram like FILTERS
Instagram has taken social media by storm. Their strongest feature – Image Filters is now in your hands right inside your WordPress site. Now you can pick from any of the 20+ filters and make your images stand out from the rest in 1-click.
#6 100+ Special Effects for your Images
Advanced effects is what photoshop is known for and we made sure you had all those effects for your images inside your WordPress site as well. Now you can apply a COMBINATION of 100+ effects to your images and create unlimited complex images for yourself.
#7 SEO Optimize Every Image You Add
99% of Marketers/Site owners never SEO-optimize their images and miss out on a huge amount of easy to get traffic that comes from Google Image search. Don’t make that mistake because we’ve made it extremely SIMPLE to SEO your images.
I just love that we can do this now within our wordpress site, whilst in the creative flow of writing our blogs, and then use those images for further social media promotion.
I also like to use my own photographs, and I can easily upload these in their raw form, to be edited in situ.
I hope you can see from the above images the scope of CanvaKala… I have not recorded a video for you today, because I have actually purchased the pro version of this plugin which has even more features, as if those above were not enough!… so my options are more…
If you are am Image lover, then this could be a funky addition to your blog… It is low cost, and I think, worth it for the job it does focusing one on the Blog in Question.
