Create Stories, Videos, Highlight Cover by New Canva App for iOS
In order to make unique stories, you can first download the app called Stories & Video Maker by Canva. The app, for now, is available for iOS users for free.
The main role of the app is to let you create stories, videos, highlight cover designs for Instagram. It is super easy to use the app and make your social media profiles interesting enough to allure followers.
Once the app is downloaded and launched, the homepage of the app shows templates in variety. These templates are classified under different categories. There is Clean Minimalist, Dark Modern, Highlight Cover Natural Scrapbook, Magazine Grids, Sports, Clam Minimalist, Snapshots, Papercraft, Classic Block, Delicate Florals, and more.
Each of the categories has several templates for free. You can pick any of the templates in order to edit it. When you choose the template, you will find more options similar to the story template. I think it’s a great idea as you can get variety even for the same template.
While editing the story, you can change the image, use solid colors, add filters, and adjust transparency. You can then save the story image on your phone.
If you tap on the Play button located on the top, you will see different ways of presenting the story. Animations style like Fade, Rise, Breathe, and Slide can make your story look effective. You can save the video as well.
Same things, you can do while making custom highlight covers. After selecting a highlight cover template, you get similar options and then you can put all your creative designs and idea to the highlight covers. Thereafter, you can share the highlight covers to your Instagram profile to make your Instagram account look impressive.
Even if you run a small business and want to create a story for that purpose, the app has ideas for this too. You can simply use the search bar on the top where you can add a custom keyword to quickly find the relevant template (in case if you find it a long process going through the categories and templates). This makes your task easy to use the search bar and get the idea.
We have no doubt about the service of Canva as it provides you amazing ideas for creating graphic designs. With the new app Stories & Video Maker by Canva, you get a separate app for creating quick stories and videos. You can make unique stories with a good background, fonts, and illustrations. Also, you get ready to use highlight covers for Instagram. The designs can be exported so that you can quickly share on your social media profiles.
