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 consider Canva to be one of the most practical and high-quality editing tools I've ever used, I use it every day at work. I make presentations, edit photos, labels and much more, with quality, practicality and agility.

Pros

Canva is free and open to everyone. You can use it to create attractive designs for social media, marketing campaigns or projects. Despite the plethora of free material, Canva also has ready-made elements and designs in a paid model.

Cons

If you're a designer, the tool can also limit you creatively. Canva was not created with the development of visual identities, brands and logos in mind. Because of this, it doesn't offer creation tools from scratch.

Canva is the best option, the best value for money and professional quality among competing apps.

Pros

It is a great tool for creating social media posts, surrounded with a wide variety of designs, aids and features. It's really easy and intuitive to work with canva. Genius the new update with virtual intelligence, where you say what you want and the application, like magic, creates before your eyes. The best image editing tool out there.

Cons

The monthly plan is a bit expensive, the annual plan remains the best option. The clipping tool on the smartphone sometimes does not work well, likewise, the text box, when used on the smartphone, occurs some crashes.

Canva helped me a lot when it comes to my social networks, I do a lot of things with it, whether digitally or on a daily basis, I make logos and print them to make my presentations, and it works really well.

Pros

The ease, it has good editing options, is easy to use, and brings a lot of practicality to the entrepreneur's life.

Cons

I think there should be more tutorials on how to use the application, as it is a little complicated for those without knowledge.
