Pros: Design bold is a really cool online editor. I try canva, but i like more designbold because have more templates

We use in our media company for make guides, small books and magazines, and blog post features images

What i love?

I give this tool to a non designer and make works better than any designer we hire before (true story)

If you have the content you can use a template and make a really cool design, guide or minibook on minutes.

Very friendly to use and the end result is amazing (if you use templates)

Cons: Would be nice if they need to add more icons and photos.

There is alot of small bug the is really annoying like you cannot make bold a small text in a paragraph

There is no grid or ruler

Sometimes the Ui freeze or is really slow

Is hard to move or order the element in the design

I dont pretend designbold to be photoshop, but is missing some basic features.

Overall: I use for leadmagnet, ebook and guides on pdf. Truly save alot of time!!!

Pros: Designbold offers an excellent selection of templates that serve as a great baseline start for creating some rather nifty graphics. As a content creator I need tons of good imagery to accompany the articles, blog posts and social media posts I create for clients and I am not a graphic designer so a utility like this that can help me (kind of) look like I am is a big help.

Cons: The Pro Pricing is a little higher than Canva for Business, but the free version I have been using gives me a huge of amount of access to useful assets anyway, so it's still a win.

Overall: Access to great templates - and stock photography - that allows me to create blog graphics, social media posts, infographic assets and more. Some of the designs (most of which are community sourced) are of a truly high standard, some of the best I have encountered while trialing the various software offerings of this kind.

Pros: They have a very large library of templates and stock images available to use for free, with some paid premium options as well. I have the paid plan which offers a magic resize feature which lets me use the same graphic for numerous social platforms without having to do heavy editing. I love that they also have a large library of print media templates in addition to online templates.

Cons: The platform can have bugs from time to time. many times thumbnail previews fail to load and if you do a quick edit and download, sometimes the edits don't make it into the download so you have to redo it.

Overall: Great tool if you want to create easy to use social graphics and print materials

Comments: My first impression is the very design tool of DesignBold. It is like a simplified version of Photoshop. I could do a lot of fun stuff with my design, and I can do it online, not on a heavy and complicated design software. DesignBold provides me several presets for my design intention: Tumblr, facebook, poster,... you name it. The design tool is really useful, however, sometimes I got trouble with the navigation bars.

The customer support is quite aggressive. My feedback is always responded quickly and they really considered my feedback to improve the tools.

With the upgraded version, I have to say there are so many cool stuff like exclusive layouts, or custom fonts, which you can upload your own typefaces for your designs. The exclusive layouts are fantastic and fit for higher requirements.

Anyway, it is really worth spending your bucks for this awesome design tool. Let's give it shoot guys!

Pros: DesignBold, for me, leaves Canva in the background. It's really easy to make professional social media and graphic designs in as little or as much time as you'd want to take. All the design elements are completely customizable. One of the coolest features and what I like most is their "magic resize" option. Say you wanted to create a LinkedIn banner image, and not start from scratch when creating a Facebook cover photo, all you do is click resize at the top, and "magic resize" it to the preset (or custom) dimensions. So cool.

Cons: I really don't have many complaints with DesignBold. The only complaint I have is, when you want to delete a design, it's not apparent right away. You click the design, then the trash icon (along with preview, share, and download [and other options]) shows up on the upper right, as opposed to on or nearby the design you selected. That part is not as intuitive and takes some getting used to.

Overall: I save so much time creating professional social media images. I couldn't imagine not having DesignBold in my creative stack.

Pros: There are a ton of great templates available for almost any need, from blogging, social media, and marketing materials. The software is also generally easy to use. Designbold also rolls out new features on a fairly regular basis.

Cons: Sometimes drag and drop does not always work and I have to go into incognito mode for some reason for it to work properly. I also find it a bit frustrating that I can't use two different font or font sizes in one text box. There is online chat available for help, and customer service is always prompt. However I do not find them to be overly friendly.

Overall: I find it to be a good cheaper alternative to Canva, and will continue to use it for all of my marketing needs.

Pros: They have many attractive templates for creating graphics for business use, such as for social media and for blog feature images. I have even used to draft out some logo ideas. They also have a large collection of images and icons to use.

Cons: Not as intuitive and friction-free as I would like it to be. They have improved a lot in usability but still feels a bit clunky. Some learning curve for the first time users.

Overall: DesignBold is a good option for creating impressive graphics with a fairly large library of design ideas and many stock images and icons for use. They have some ways to go in making it completely intuitive. They have made much progress in the last year or so in this direction, which makes me believe that they will continue to do so.

Pros: The biggest advantage of DesignBold that meet my requirement is that it offers me a full package of photo editing tools. I can add features including filters, flip, crop, transparency to my photos. DesignBold gives me so much choice of filters that I don't have to use Lightroom before I upload photos to any site on Internet anymore. It really saves my time and energy!

Cons: Sometimes my download designs are moved that the saved product is not exactly the same as the original one. As a result, I spend such a lot of time trying to fix it. Although this situation rarely happens, I think that the developers of DesignBold should find out the way to improve download feature.

Overall: I don't have professional design skills and this tool gives me a big collection of free and premium layout. So all I have to do is just clicking, dragging and dropping. That is really easy and time-saving. As a result, I can create many stunning Inforgraphic, Presentation, Invitation at work.

Overall: designbold solves a lot of the marketing and graphic design issues that we have. Love this program!

Pros: This product will create a fabulous Poster project you may need to come up with for, let's say, a Social Media Event or Fundraiser...This should be your first stop. I use the free version. It does come with a lot of great stock images but you can unlock several more options to design with the paid version.

Cons: I think it may have minor Bug issues here and there, but it is nothing too major. This is a free product so there are no real complaints.

Pros: The templates are more professional looking and there is a great library of diverse images to choose from. Organizing my designs is easy and I'm able to use custom fonts. You can also share your designs and follow other designers.

Cons: The only drawback is I'm not able to use it on mobile. Otherwise it would be perfect. I use another app when I'm on the go and that breaks up the consistent design.

Pros: Compared to other design tools I have ever tried, DesignBold for free users offers me such a lot of non-paid but cool features. I am still a student and I rarely need to design, so I find it unnecessary to pay money to upgrade to PRO/VIP account. Actually, free experience on DesignBold is enough for me to deal with my homework and projects.

Cons: At rush hour, it takes times to load design elements. As a result, I need to spend more time finishing my designs. Sometimes it doesn't matter to me, but it's really a disadvantage especially when I'm in a hurry.

Overall: Overall, I think DesignBold is a must-try item as a design solution. It's useful and economical for who can't afford to buy PRO/VIP account. Free experience on DesignBold is absolutely excellent.

Pros: This is really easy to use with lots of nice looking templates we can use to create a wide range of social media assets for our site.

Cons: I wish there was a way to easily create ebooks / reports using templates. Right now you could patch together something one page at a time, but having lots of ebook / special reports with editable fields would really make this super useful. Think indesign but with lots of pre-designed templates for creating lead magnets, special reports, guides etc.

Overall: Quick and easy social media banners and content creation

I love that I can easily share my designs with my clientele to get immediate feedback

Pros: This was great, because it is essentially a slightly upgraded version of Canva. I was familiar with the UI, there were less limitations, and I could quickly make what I needed it make without much hassle.

Cons: The customer service never gets back to you. There are some glitches that make going on the website tiresome because it's so slow sometimes. Some glitches also prevent the editing process from being as smooth as Canva is. One time, none of my designs that I made saved in my Workspace. I contacted customer service about it but they never got back to me about it. However, the issue was solved, so at least you know they try to fix the glitches.

Ability to lock images on the canvas, to delete your uploads, more varied design template choices, upload your own fonts, download complex designs as PDF.

Overall: The ease of use and number of templates are awesome. In just a short time of goofing around I created a couple of great looking sample flyers.
