SkyBlueCanvas allows you, the site owner, to keep your site content fresh using the skills you already have. If you can use a word processor, you can write your site's text. You can upload your photos and other art work directly from your browser with a few clicks of your mouse (4 clicks to be exact).

SkyBlueCanvas uses easy-to-understand menus, buttons, and forms to give you the power to change the text and artwork on your site. In most cases, it is just point, click, type and the content is changed.
