Want to give your quotes a great background? Canva.com is for you! Most of their pictures and fonts are free, but some cost just $1.  Canva’s search engine allows you to discover legal professional photos to use for just $1. Or upload your own image to design your project. Every photo is easy to manipulate with a filter, focus tool, and other easy techniques with a touch of a button. Canva.com offers hundreds of fonts and too many tools to describe here.
