CanvaKala Test

Late last week, a new plugin was released called CanvKala.  I got approved as an affiliate and started promoting it here in my blog.  I made a promise early on that I wouldn’t promote stuff just to promote it, but only when I felt a product could help you in your business building.  And this one is no different.

If you’ve been using WordPress for any time, you know that it’s image editing is about as limited as can be.  I’m not bashing WordPress, because it truly is a remarkable tool that lets non-technical folks build a site and a business without having to get a degree in computer science or pay the Earth for a programmer to build their web pages.  But its  image handling capabilities leave a lot to be desired.

I haven’t had a lot of images on my blog for that very reason!  When I start writing a post, I don’t really want to be bouncing back and forth to get it done.  Distractions are my worst enemy!  And saving a  post as a draft while I go out to find a public domain image and the taking it into Photo-Paint or CorelDRAW to make it the way I want it…  Let’s just say that it makes it unlikely that I’ll get the post done in any kind of reasonable time frame.

When I saw the promotional video for CanvaKala, I thought, “Wow!  I can use that and not be spending my day bouncing from one website to the next and one software to the next just to get a post up with some images!”  So…I purchased it.  🙂

Today, I want to put a couple of images in this post to see what I can do with them and give you an idea of how the CanvaKala plugin might benefit you.  Here goes…

Let me know if you think this is something that might help you.  Please note that the price I put in the modified image has no relation to anything…it just popped into my head!  😉

Have a great day!

  1. Hello Bernard

    I hope this plugin will help people to include more images in their content. For me though it is all about being prepared. I store 2 version of every stock image, one in its original format for video use and one optimized for web use, typically at 600px wide and under 100Kb in file size.

    By doing this I always have access to a library of good to go WordPress post images that are optimized for page load times.

    1. That’s a great way to handle it, Igor. But I think many folks don’t think about images until they’re in the middle of a post and that’s where the plugin will be invaluable. I know that I am often creating a post when an idea for an image pops into my head. Then I end up in the scenario I put in my narrative. And one of the really nice things about it is that it allows some advanced photo editing for folks that may not have a high end software package, which all cost substantially more than the CanvaKala plugin. For them, it’s an absolute gem!

      Thanks for you comments! 🙂
