How to Use Canva's Text to Image Generator

I can describe the last two weeks of the Third Quarter of this school year using these four letters: B U S Y. We needed to create test questions and submit test papers for checking to see if the items are created based on MELCs, Bloom's Revised Taxonomy, and Table of Specifications. After the getting the approval, we should print examination papers and answer sheets urgently so that the test administration would be smooth and successful. 

I currently holding three subjects in the second semester, and I can say that the most challenging subject to construct a test is Media and Information Literacy. In fact, I submitted a seven-page test paper as it has pictures and reading texts. I must be creative in writing questions. As a matter of fact, I browsed Facebook page Insights and online publication sites to look for materials that I can use for items under understanding, applying, analyzing, and creating. Moreover, I heavily relied on productivity tools particularly Canva. It helped me big time in producing graphics. 

I remember that I was feeling tired during the last five items of my test construction. The questions I needed are under applying and creating. My body was under the spell of exhaustion, and I should fight it to finish my task. It was the last item when I went to Canva. I must produced options about creating a campaign ad solving digital divide. I chose Facebook post template and a blank format appeared. I wanted to sleep that time and do the designing once I woke up. That moment, I recalled that I watched a content on Canva's Text to Image feature. I searched for it and it aided me to finish my task quickly. 

These are the graphics that were generated. 

The images above are products of Canva's offerings to all its users. You can use this feature in creating instructional materials, and can be taught to learners. 

What is Text to Image feature? 

Text-to-Image feature is the free AI image generator of Canva. A user just need to encode words or phrases about the image you are visualizing. The site can make your imaginations come true as it can produce images that are not existing yet. 

Canva allows you to tweak the generated image as it has options to change the style. You can also enhance the image, apply photo effects and filters, and insert captions and other design elements.

3. Locate and select the Apps section. It can be found in the left bottom part of the screen. 

4. Choose Text to Image feature. You may also search it and the site will show it and other apps as well. 

5. Encode in the box the words or phrases about the description of the image. I typed 'A cat that writes a poem'. as an example. Then, click 'Create your image' button. 

6. Select the image you want to use. Wait for it to be loaded in the blank template. You can also drag the image. 

7. You have the option to change the style of the image. The following are the options you can choose from: photography, digital art, and fine art.
