Canva General Review

Canva is to my opinion the best software that can be used to create and publish any graphic design on the go. Publishing on social media has never been that easy, no need to calculate the image dimensions (Width x Height) set by different social media platforms... Canva does that automatically for you.

Pros

- Canva is so easy to use with beautiful and instinctive UI design, great user experience too.
- It has a free version with readily available design templates which just needs to be customized according to your liking.
- It's a relatively cheap software compared to others in the same category.
- Canva has mobile applications too where you can create designs on the go and it syncs all your created designs created, irrespective of the platform you used.
- Canva makes it so easy to create our social media posts for YouTube, Facebook, Instagram, LinkedIn as well as posters we use to advertise offline as well as presentations during student/faculty training.
- Besides our company, Canva is widely used among content creators (e.g Bloggers, YouTubers to create video thumbnails) hence a large audience uses this which influenced our decision to choose Canva as a photo design software.

Cons

- Repetitive designs might be found across the web as everyone uses the same design templates.

Alternatives Considered

FotoJet

Reasons for Choosing Canva

- Fotojet seemed to be limited in terms of features, compared to Canva. - Canva tends to have more free design templates readily available for use.

Switched From

FotoJet

Reasons for Switching to Canva

- Canva was relatively cheap and affordable, so easy to use (does not require an expert) and has so many free design templates.

I had a fantastic experience using this software. I didn’t need any help from other apps. As I used the pro version, I could use all of the features. I use Canva both for my personal and official work. I insist everyone to give it a shot

Pros

Its vast storage of extensive templates always amazes me. It contains various kinds of templates like social media (Facebook, Instagram, YouTube, etc.), presentations, and thumbnails. Poster, card, resume, flyer, and a lot. So you don’t have to use any third-party application.

Cons

Canva doesn’t offer for free. Most of the important elements are paid. You can’t use them unless you purchase the pro version. And the price is a bit high. They should add some more important features in the free version.

Frustrating with a big pay off. The process is really annoying but seeing the finished project and how well it performs makes *some* of the irritation worth it. I will say that despite consistent being angered during the creation process, I keep coming back to use Canva.

Pros

There are a multitude of options for any and all kind of advertising. You can even design logos and business cards on Canva which is super cool.

I have used Canva for Instagram stories, Instagram posts, Facebook posts, and have made and printed off flyers. I really do enjoy how seamless templates are across different sized projects as well - that has made it very easy to streamline advertising campaigns.

I also really enjoy how easily it saves past designs - seeing your past campaigns is super easy because you can see everything big picture and all at once.

Cons

You’re not about to work offline on the mobile app which is really unhelpful. Any changes you may make, say while trying to work underground during your subway ride, do not save and often times you’ll have to start over. Super annoying.

The program is also very touchy and finicky - you have to be super deliberate with what you’re doing. I find that one mistaken click can totally blank out what you’re working on. Again, super annoying.

Canva is a fantastic platform that democratizes design, making it accessible to everyone. Its user-friendly interface facilitates a smooth design process, boosting productivity and creativity. It's an indispensable tool for creating marketing materials, and presentations.

Pros

Canva has an intuitive interface for users without graphic design expertise. Its vast template library is versatile, covering various applications, and allows for collaborative work, streamlining creative processes.

Cons

Canva's advanced features will not feel limited to non-professional designers. Customisation options for templates are somewhat restricted, and the performance speed can be slower when handling complex designs.

Alternatives Considered

Snappa and Adobe Creative Cloud

Reasons for Switching to Canva

I prefer Canva for its simplicity and efficiency. It's approachable and perfect for quick design tasks. Its integration capabilities with other platforms and its excellent mobile app also add to its convenience. Canvas cost-effectiveness, generous free tier, and reasonable premium options provide significant value, making it a more suitable choice for my needs.

My experience with Canva was one of the best experiences I had with a design application in all aspects, and now I cannot do without it in my daily life and work ever.

Pros

There are many positives that I liked about Canva, the most important of which are:
ease of use - existing templates - distinctive features such as( undo, text editing, and video editing) - saving time and effort

Cons

There are not many negatives in Canva, but I wish more formats were added for downloading files, especially files intended for printing
