How to Add Drop Shadows in Canva

Posted by on March 30th, 2021

While creating graphics using Canva, we kept running into one continual problem: there was no easy way to provide a drop shadow to basic elements like squares and circles. Canva’s built in features were lacking (and sometimes created poor looking drop shadows). While normally Canva can do a lot, and has a lot of flexibility for on-the-go graphics creation and image editing, we found this lack of feature particularly frustrating. The solution, however, is rather simple, and we’d like to provide that solution to you as well.

Building a LinkTree Alternative: Cutting out the Middle Man

Posted by on February 15th, 2021

LinkTree is great and often used by many people, especially on Instagram, since you can only share one link and links within the description and comments don’t parse. A LinkTree is a great method of giving people the option to find links to multiple places using the same URL in your bio, so you’re not constantly chasing changing a single link all of the time, and you don’t leave your readers/followers confused. LinkTree’s concept is great. It’s an awesome platform to use if you don’t know how to custom code your own solution.

Scam Alert: Backlink Photo Credit Scam

Posted by on January 7th, 2021

A fun new scam is cropping up, similar to the scary sounding spam about infringing photos which phishes you for sensitive information, but this one seems a little less nefarious. Instead of looking to capture your sensitive data, “scammers” (likely more like black-hat SEOs) write to you posing as a client or “on behalf of” a client, claiming you are using one of their copyrighted photos on your website without their permission. A client recently forwarded one of these emails to us, which made us aware of the backlink scam. Here’s how the email went: Hello there, You are using…
