CANVA 2.0: A Step Sideways

Pros: Canva 2.0 remains the standard of excellence in online graphics creation for beginners through intermediate skill levels. Canva 2.0 widens the left-side margins of the app, allowing images and items you are searching for to appear larger on the desktop version. Once you find the "Find Templates" menu selection, you indeed have a VERY nice selection of graphics templates organized into a wider variety of categories than before.

If you peek at the APPS icon in the lower left, you'll see a large selection of great tools such as animation and gif creation, transparent backgrounds, image resizing, larger stock photo library etc., but they require the paid per month subscription.

Cons: Removal of the template selection screen. Asking the user to guess what the exact template style is by typing in an expression or description of the template, is a needless step backwards, all in pursuit of a cleaner looking interface.. If you want to enter your own design dimensions (say 1280x7200 pixels) the box for that is gone.

Yes, FIND TEMPLATES is quietly there on the left side of the screen, but I didn't notice it until I had used Canva 2.0 nearly a dozen times. This could end up being better than Canva 1.0 if they install a guide for newcomers, showing users where they've moved these commonly used tools to.... It's a bit conceited when designers believe their products are so well engineered that they think they need no instructions.

Overall: The original Canva 1.0 rates all 5 Stars. Easy to use, easy to see the various templates that beginners/advanced users wanted to find. Easy to select text elements and shapes..

For Canva 2.0? Take away a star across the board (4 stars.). They decided to not leave well enough alone. I can only find two improvements in a product that really didn't need improving, and they left out a notable chance to improve the app, by making image resizing a free, standard feature. That feature has become almost essential in 2018, and making it a premium feature is a shame..

Canva 2.0 buries the most often-used menu items (Shapes/Lines/Charts/Icons/Images) behind an unrelated menu option. If you want shapes, lines, or charts you'll need to click on "images". Then, scroll down the left side of the screen to find the elements you are searching for, and because they are now lumped together, get ready to scroll for awhile.

Despite the improved wider left side menu, using Canva 2.0 is a slower process than before.

Pros: I am not a graphic designer. You wouldn't know this thanks to Canva. I use Canva everyday. I make Instagram graphics, Facebook covers, invites for my alumni association activities, flow charts and email info-graphics. I get asked all the time if I'll design invites for people. It's hilarious. I have no idea what I'm doing. But with Canva...you don't have to. Their templates are amazing. It's a matter of swapping in your own information right inside their templates and suddenly you're graphic design Jesus. I kid you not. Canva makes my online presence look legit.. Canva makes me seem way cooler than I really am. More importantly, Canva makes me look more professional online than I ever dreamed. I can make invites for my daughter's birthday parties. Don't believe me. Try it. You'll be hooked.

Cons: I like everything else. It's amazing. The iphone app can be a little trickier just because of the nature of size of the screen but it is still a fantastic way to create.

Overall: I get control of my message. I don't have to rely on anyone else to market me. My online presence looks legit.

Pros: Canva is user-friendly. I was able to get signed up and start producing social posts and eCards almost immediately.

The multitude of features give me versatility. After I style one social post, I can then resize it to multiple sizes to fit all my social media venues. That is an amazing time saver for me.

The variety of free to low cost graphics, both illustrations and photographs, offers a selection that is more plentiful than any service I've used in the past. And the ability to upload and incorporate my own graphics is a gracious and effective feature.

Canva is a cost-saving for my home business. Before Canva, I spent a great deal more time creating and styling graphics. I spent a great deal more money on graphics. The one-time fee for an illustration or photograph is a dream come true for me.

The Canva blog is full of design suggestions and ideas. It has been a wealth of knowledge for me as a self-taught graphic artist. It's given me ideas and sparked my creativity.

The Canva support desk is designed to be user-friendly and is not at all intimidating as some other help desks or forums can be. It has videos and instructions that can make anybody feel like a pro in no time.

Overall: Time savings. Cost savings. Low-cost to no-cost illustration and photography selection is huge. User-friendly. From the graphics I created on Canva I've set up a regular posting schedule with another SaaS and now have 10,000 more visitors to my blog since I initiated my new system. Canva has played a big part in this.

When I first joined a few years ago, I had a difficulty in applying my payments to the correct business (I had a few at one time) so that I could use the bonus graphics on the right account. That issue was resolved but I thought the people I discussed this with via email could have handled that situation with a bit more clarity. I've operated computer since the 1970's and that little piece confused even me. But, as I said, it was resolved and it's been smooth sailing ever since with me and Canva.

Pros: I can't rave enough about this product. Before this, we were using MS Publisher and the templates are very antiquated with little guidance or some of us jumped to Adobe InDesign which is quite overwhelming. Canva has been a true game changer. It is so easy to use. No one here is trained in graphic design and there is great help/design school section for those who aren't trained but want to learn a little more about basic principles like font, negative spacing, etc. in hands on quick practice tutorials. They also include free templates that are beautiful and graphically pleasing if you don't know where to start. Uploading of your own images are quick and easy with png or jpg supported formats. I love that all the documents come in sizes like poster, facebook post, twitter and you can easily "magic resize" any document with very little tweaking to use the same design amongst all social media and posters with just the quick press of a button. I don't need to remember sizes anymore. You can share designs among team members so we can all keep the same branding, image folders, and color scheme or edit easily. If you have any worries about copyrighting of outside images, you can stay within Canva and search their free/paid images.

Cons: That you can't search by free images only and if not that feature it is frustrating that you can't organize them so all the free ones to come up to the top. That is literally the only "bad" thing I have to say about this product!

Overall: easy to use, has really streamlined our marketing process amongst a team that doesn't always get to see each other, professionalized our design and taught us about graphic design without having to sit through extensive classes

Pros: Great ease of use and intuitive software interface. I enjoyed using this software. It is easier than working in Photoshop. Everything (the features) are all either drag and drop or click and select. I could get it up and running in no time after signing up a paid account. You can get away with a free account to test-drive the online software.

Canva helps me to edit, manage and store images and allows me to download them to my PC/laptop easily and quickly. Further, I can upload my own custom edited images.

The paid version allows me to do many things namely the ability to access millions of photos and get access to further exclusive access to 400,000 free photos, illustrations, and templates. A useful feature which I liked is that it can magically resize my designs, and allowing me to upload custom fonts for my brand. These are just some of the useful features which I had been using so far. It also contain team functionalities, which allow team to work together and collaborate on online design projects. In short, very useful!

Cons: Got some minor issues, where the software failed to save my template or custom design that I have edited. Hence, I have to rework on them. Sometimes, during the design editing process, certain changes are not accurately reflected on the interface. For example, dragging on the nodes of a selected object or element to change the dimensions are not reflected on the screen. Sometimes, after saving a design, it took a while for it to be found in the library. I guess, software always has it ups and downs on certain days?

Overall: Great online graphic design tool! Especially if you find Photoshop too expensive!

Pros: Canva is a phenomenal tool for all-things graphic design. For starters, the free version offers a lot of content, designs, images, etc. I haven't seen anything like it. It's layout and interface is clean, consistent, and friendly to use. It's easy to navigate and you learn quickly how to use the site or app. Canva offers hundreds, maybe even thousands, of pretreated, yet customizable layouts that can be used on all sorts of social media platforms or projects (infographics, graphics, cards, resumes, menus, posters, picture collages, invitations, etc.). There are hundreds of relevant font styles, and with such a wide variety, you will definitely find what you're looking for or something that fits the project. If you pay a little, you have access to even more images, layouts, and a team cloud-based storage so that all team members can collaborate on projects -great feature! Last, your work is saved automatically in the cloud and can be downloaded as .png, .pdf, or jpeg (and maybe even more?).

Cons: I'm a big fan, but it would be great if they could offer animations, GIFs, or the ability to embed videos. That would be a way they could take the next step with their graphics platform and would allow your creations to come alive, so to say.

Pros: It's a very accessible and engaging platform. Pretty much everything I have on there has come off as clean and professional, despite my own learning curve with graphic design. It's definitely created with multiple skill levels of users in mind.

Cons: Sometimes the parameters around the user interface and overall options can feel limiting. But for a free software with as many features as this has, it's hard to complain.

I would like to suggest a few options:

Folders or some type of labeling system for the images the user uploads, particularly with a search feature. At present you just have to scroll thru photos based on when they were uploaded. The same applies to your designs. It would be great to be able to search based on the title of a graphic.

I think piloting some type of Canva University or certification program could be interesting. As novice who loves design, I would also love to learn more and get really familiar with all the features. For instance, I just found about being able to create graphs last week.

Overall: Helpful, engaging, promotes creative. Certain aspects of user interface could be improved, but I use this almost everyday in my work.

Pros: I use Photoshop every day, and I'd say I'm probably an intermediate-level user. However, sometimes even I would prefer to use Canva because of how fast and easy it is to put together a good looking graphic. A lot of the design choices, style and layout is already done for you, so it eliminates some of the thinking and trial and error getting a good looking image. It's free with some premium elements you have to pay for, which is better than having to pay outright. And it has all of the essential features you need in a streamlined editor. Pre-sized templates for each project you have, as well as pre-made filters, templates, vector graphics, stock images, backgrounds, beautiful fonts (and no ugly ones), just pretty much everything you need and nothing you don't. The learning curve is almost zero. They even have a sort of "academy" where you can learn basic design principles. It's a great starting place for people who feel intimated by Photoshop or Illustrator but want to get started somewhere.

Cons: I guess the only negative to Canva is the premium content, but that's their business model so I can't fault them for that. You might say that not being able to use custom fonts is a downer, but they have a good selection of trendy, commonplace fonts that look good when you mix and match them.

Overall: We use Canva to create quick graphics for use on social media, emails, print, and the web as it can be a faster alternative to professional applications like Photoshop or Illustrator.

Pros: I have used Canva for at least one year and I think is a great tool for a Community Manager, Social Media Manager, and any other person who need to create visual content in an easy way. If you need to create a design and you don't know nothing about graphic design, this tool will be the best way to do a great job. It's easy to use, agile, and dynamic.

What I like most about this software is that it offers different templates that you can work on when you are a beginner. This speeds up the time and productivity of your creations, allowing you to design faster and with quality.

In addition, Canva offers the exact resolution for each social network, which is a great help since you will not have to adjust the size of the image manually, offering a perfect measurement from the beginning.

Cons: I would like Canva to have more advanced design options, for which we have experience. However, in all the time that I have been using Canva I have not found any aspect that bothers me. It is a fully functional, fast and quality software.

Overall: I'm a Community Manager, my job is to create content on social networks, therefore, my main job requires basic graphic design skills. Thanks to Canva I have been able to work efficiently and respond to all the requests that have been successfully made to me.

Pros: Canva design software has taken the best design tools -- previously only in the purview of graphics professionals -- and placed them in the hands of regular folk with a creative flair. They've made it easier for me to visualize and bring to life ideas I have for banners and posters and cards. And more often than not, I don't actually have an idea -- Canva provides so many samples and examples across all the spaces where I need a design, it's a no-brainer!

Although I use a desktop design application (GIMP) for creating graphics for articles and making pretty text titles (for ebooks or reports), I turn to Canva for banners and graphics for Twitter, Facebook or cards.

I like that I can upload my own images. Downloading your final creation in a few different formats is a useful feature. It saves a little time converting it into another format on the other end.

For teachers, Canva has created an entire culture for sharing and learning new ways to use Canva in the classroom. Instructors post some truly creative instructables, including full lesson plans and example outcomes.

Cons: Sometimes it seems like my layers disappear or it's hard to re-focus on a layer that's under other layers. This is probably less of a "con" or flaw in the Canva system and more about how design software handles layering.

I'd like to see better organization of images, especially free images, so I can find those I like easier.

Overall: Overall, Canva is to the cloud what design software has been to the desktop. Even though they offer a premium version with more bells and whistles, what Canva gives the community in its free version is valuable.

You can jump right in and start creating. For more sophisticated designs, you'll have a learning curve but it's well worth the effort.

Pros: In a few clicks you can design a multitude of graphics for use in marketing/advertising through social media or print.

You are not limited by the images provided - you can upload your own to manipulate.

I use the professional version (paid) which also provides me with sharing capabilities, branding, upload your own fonts and other perks.

I love being able to create a design and resize it for different social media platforms.

Easy to use templates and modify or create your own designs.

Lots of fonts.

Good tutorials on how to use different features.

Cons: When I automatically resize for different platforms, I have to do some manual rearranging of items.

Search function is limited.

Can't figure out how to insert a simple line.

Would like grids that are not tied to images so that text or images could be inserting and use the grids with borders or without.

Overall: It's my go-to design software for so many different things - social media posts, graphics to use on my website, promotional mailing pieces and so much more.

Pros: The basic plan is free, which already has enough good materials and free photo and illustrator pictures for use. I like it offers different design templates (including the exact size of the design, so it makes things much easier for we just selecting which design for which social media post or poster). For each design template, it also offers a lot of beautiful and trendy design templates, 2/3 are free, 1/3 you need to pay for the upgrade plan.

Cons: Sometimes, it suddenly quits out by itself out of notice when you're working on the design project. And after you reload the page, not every time your work is saved, which means you have to remake a few works again due to the unknown problem of the Canva. Another thing is even one very basic and simple picture material itself costs at least. It means if you working on the whole design with many paid elements, it cost a lot.

Overall: Save money and save time if you just do the easy touch up for the picture or making some simple design by choosing some design templates.

Pros: I love the ease of use and design assistance. The free tutorials are so helpful. The template library is varied and deep. There's a million reasons to use Canva, including the royalty-free graphics and simplicity. As a paid subscriber, the ability to keep my branded items uploaded and easy to access is awesome. They are constantly working to improve the service.

Cons: Greedily, I wish there were even more royalty-free photos available to the paid subscribers. I wish when I paid for an item it would be available across uses, too. Without being greedy, I think there are a lot of flow-and-functionality improvements that can be made to the user interface. It's difficult and winding to make your way to a template from the design library. The search feature is too specific and should include the ability to search through designs and fonts. More fonts would be great too -- I appreciate the recent addition.

Pros: I use Canva for everything from social media posts and PDF handouts to video introductions I send to clients. I love being able to customize images with text and artwork and the drag-and-drop feature makes it incredibly easy. Every part of my business that is customer-facing has improved ten-fold since implementing this into my business. This software is almost a must for any business-to-consumer operation.

Cons: I almost laugh as I type this since Canva has millions of options for images and designs but I wish there was a higher level membership that allowed you access to a greater number of designs. Canva has set aside different designs for purchase that are typically of higher quality. Sometimes it is frustrating when you want to use those designs but not pay to only use it once. I would be willing to pay more each month to have a wider access to better designs.

Overall: I can't even think about not having Canva anymore. I use it almost everyday and for nearly every social media post I create. A large part of my business is video proposals which I create and email to clients and I use Canva for every single one of them. It helps take my business to the next level and provides a personal and customizable aspect that other competitors just aren't offering. In an industry that has 5 competitors down every street Canva definitely helps me stand out.

Pros: Not everyone is a designer, but in this era all we care about is the look. I'm a web designer from a small media business and it was not easy and effective to keep having to wait for our designers to get every single simple elements from them as they have print projects. Canva saved our life and time! They give us all options and templates that we can customize for our own use and our own eyes of design. We use the premium business plan for the ease of organizing folders AND for their animation features. We create several moving digital ads within ~10-15 mins and clients all love them! The founder of Canva is definitely a genius, and life-saver for small businesses (and big agency!)

Cons: I can't complain so much. There was one time Canva was down and it was the day I realized how much I relied on them. I definitely wasn't happy to have it down especially when we were on premium plan AND having a deadline (and all of our data/graphic was saved on it). But it was the ONE-TIME-in-a-million-year thing, we never experienced any down time beside that.

Extremely useful for everyday use!

Pros: I love that I don't feel limited in my creation. There are also amazing templates for the quick jobs, that really look great! You can download your files in various types (pdf, jpeg, etc.) Now there is even a sharing feature so I can share document within a team file. I really think it's unlikely I will find a tool that I like more than this for its ease of use.

Cons: These files work perfectly, as long as they stay digital. The documents seem to always print fine, but any invitations or cards always seem to pront out grainy/blurry. I have tried multiple things to avoid this, and simply the file sizes are just too limited. I couldn't even print out a 4x6 card without some blur. I also found that when creating a design with an imported file, it shrinks the file size too. So when the final product is downloaded and then re-uploaded to its destination, a photo that wasn't blurry before now is.

Pros: Well, not a bottle. But as a beautifully packaged web-product. Canva is a platform that I recommend to all of my freelance clients, (especially start-ups and budding businesses) and it is also what what we use in the office. It is so easy to use, the interface is perfectly intuitive. It's worth paying for even if just to upload all of your brand assets and create posts with the correct message and branding with beautiful layouts! Definitely use this, if you don't have time to learn Adobe Suite, and you aren't a designer but have design needs; for a much smaller price than hiring a designer or social media manager, you can create your own content as you grow into being able to get professional help!

Cons: The drawback with Canva, is that you can't choose the size of the files that you save and export, so sometimes they come out smaller than you may like, and won't look good on digital platforms like Facebook (covers) or large digital presentations. I would love to see this feature added!

So easy to use, and actually fun to use!

Pros: This is my favorite FREE graphics design software. It has a really bright and cute interface, which makes timely projects a lot easier to get through. I love that you can upload your own clipart and images, and even further edit them in the program. The fact that it's completely free is what I can't even believe. You can export into so many different formats, and it's fast. I have literally never had the program crash, even though it's a browser based software. If you accidentally close out, it automatically saves for you, and it automatically saves every 20 seconds anyway. There is a HUGE library of templates to choose from if you don't know where to start, and in the editor there's a HUGE library of clipart, shapes, lines, etc. Getting creative with Canva is unbelievably easy and fast.

Cons: There's nothing I don't like about this software. I mean, it's free! What could there be to complain about?

Overall: I have been able to create so much fun content for personal projects, and for my business. Being personable in my industry is important, so having fun stuff on our website and social media is important to break that stuffy barrier that we tend to deal with in the jewelry industry. It's helped me really release my creative side as a webmaster.

Pros: I was hesitant to try Canva initially because I was a loyal Adobe fan (still am), but it only took a few pinched deadlines to make me realize the magic that is Canva. I've created everything from social media graphics and book covers to logos and lead magnet PDFs for clients. The price is affordable and upgrading to a business account allows you to add your own branding and team members which is awesome. I have been pleasantly surprise and pleased with Canva.

Cons: Love the templates but scrolling through the "never-ending" image feed can be laborious. I'd love an easier way to search their images.

Overall: Canva has been a life changer for my business. Because it's packed with so many features, templates and options, I'm able to design projects in a fraction of the time it would take me to open up my more expensive software and try to figure out which tool to use to get the job done. I'm a happy camper with Canva.

Pros: It is a very easy to use free tool that allows us to design and create web content of all kinds; as posters, posters, infographics, documents, business cards, Facebook covers, graphics, among others. It provides a wide variety of templates categorized by different types ranging from a simple cuuriculum vitae to logos, infographics, presentations, publications for social networks and posters, among others; its excellent editor allows you to easily edit and modify the templates to customize them to your liking, with just drag and drop you can upload images, photos, also provides lines, shapes, icons or original illustrations that will help us to create creative designs, you can change the background, font, size, color. It allows us to download our designs in PNG, JPG, PDF and PDF format for printing. And something very important is that we can invite our coloboradores, customers and work team, which can quickly make revisions of text, for example, online. and something that I think is excellent is that you do not need design knowledge to be able to create beautiful and elegant web designs or print. On the other hand our designs are stored in the cloud to be able to reuse them later, and also

we can share it directly on the most popular social networks directly from Canva

Cons: that some of the photo retouching tools are limited.

Some resources are paid, although they are not expensive.

And that there are no lines or guides that allow us to know with certainty that our design is centered and adjusted with the rest of the project.

Overall: In my performance as a university student it has been a great help, because it has allowed me to develop design for the different web applications that I have built, in an intuitive and simple way, without having to resort to a web designer and also it has allowed us to develop group work in a fast and online way

Pros: In today's world being a dynamic professional is something extremely valuable and the fact that canva allows for creating top notch graphic content without much effort and without the need of a graphic designer is just sublime, the templates and tools it offers are really simple and complete and are presented in the simplest way possible to make working with this software a really pleasent experience

Cons: Canva is excellent, I can't think of anything bad about it, it is one of the best complementary designing tool for all of the presentation softwares we use such as powerpoint or prezi, they work amazingly great together.

Overall: Straight out of the box canva is a software that has changed the way I work for good, it is incredibly versatile and complete and I don't see myself someday in the future stopping to use it, it has become a crucial tool for me, I totally recommend it.

I love Canva! Period. If you need to do quick graphic designs then Canva is your go-to!

Pros: Canva is amazing! It's so easy to use and has pretty much everything you could need for everyday graphic design work. I can make graphics for social media, emails and blogs so fast. It saves me a ton of time. And they always come out great with the tons of templates and images to choose straight from the platform.

Cons: The only few things that I can say are cons is that the utility column on the left does not minimize inward. It takes up a lot of my workspace and I wish I could make it disappear when I don't need it. Also, if you're using a PC there is not an option for a grid to use which is annoying. Their customer service told me it's possible though if you're using a Mac. Also, occasionally the platform will bug out and I'll lose work if it didn't save. It hasn't happened in awhile so maybe they fixed that.

Pros: Where do I start? I run my own company and am a one woman show. I can't afford to hire someone to create graphics for me for content that I need to create. Anything from social media posts to professional PDFs that I send to clients. I get compliments all the time about how professional my content looks. Even if you're not computer savvy, they have a free course that teaches you how to make the best out of the software.

The free content is amazing by itself and then the upgrade for business owners is minimal but offers a lot for the price. It's especially great if you have other people on your team who may need to go in and adjust stuff.

Also, the gif/movie maker is amazing. Whenever I post on Facebook with one of those I always get a lot of great feedback.

Canva is an absolute must to have.

Cons: Canva Print is too expensive and I wish we could manipulate the font in different ways, such as being able to make the words go around an image versus block text.

Overall: The software has help add credibility to my business by allowing me to deliver professional looking content, some of which clients pay for. It's been a real game changer for my business.

Pros: Canva does all the good things! Before using Canva, I had to hire out the silliest projects...paper handbills, stickers, business cards, facebook promotions, you name it. Now I can do them myself without having to go back and forth with a designer for days. I love the options of layouts, the stock of photos, the ease of uploading my own, ease of collaborating with teams, being able to make beautiful things without a graphic design degree, I just love it, feel like it's too good to be true all the time.

Cons: Nothing bad to say!!! What could I possibly say that is negative? Well there is one experience I've had where the "save" function wasn't synced with my computer and the pdf sent to the printer was an old version. The re-sizing function is still at graphic-designer level, unlike the rest of Canva. SO hard to say something negative about Canva but that's all I've got.

Overall: So many! Saving hours per day on design and saving all my energy for growing my business! It's fantastic to be able to have an idea and implement it in Canva right away. The files I create on Canva lead to instant "yeses" from leads and help communicate my company's vision in a way I could never dream of before. I make social media posts, handbills, resumes, sales documents, team planning communications, website photos, business cards, sales pitches, contracts, literally every document you could imagine and Canva makes them gorgeous.

Pros: Allows you to feel like a graphic designer with its features such as layering text over images, creating gifs, marketing pieces such as catalogs, etc. Definitely purchase the annual subscription that allows you to create your brand by uploading a logo and brand colors. Definitely utilize the fantastic design blog, https://www.canva.com/learn/design/- it will give you inspiration and great tips using the marketing images you're creating to engage and build an audience.

Cons: The one thing Canva could improve on is adding an organization feature to the All Designs section that stores the projects you've created. Right now it's one big library, but I would love to see a folders section to organize certain projects.

Overall: Our school has used canva to create a brochure for our schools, advertisements for summer and fall admissions; business cards for our Head of School. Canva makes you feel like a graphic designer that's capable of creating high quality work in less time than it would take in photoshop!

Pros: I love how fast and easy you can create graphics with Canva. I love the template variety and that I can create bases of their styles or from scratch. It is great for creating quick graphics for social media. My graphic designer is used by this application; however, it is all we use for social media in our department and I have used it for fliers and invitations for personal use and it is perfect for those needs. I love that I can create with very little stress and effort.

Cons: I am not impressed with the offerings when I upgraded to Canva for Work. The price wasn't worth the extra features. It wasn't as simple to change the size of a graphic as it was presented. This program will frustrate anyone that wants the ability to do detail work like you can in Adobe products.

Pros: It's super easy to use. There is no ramp up time and it's low cost. I like have so many templates to work from and find the tempaltes to be helpful from a design and organization standpiont.

Cons: The dashboard needs some work. The product defaults to put everything into one large dashboard. Doing large bulk operations like moving a bunch of files into a folder or erasing a bunch of images at once isn't possible. It's a great tool, but if you're trying to use it frequently for a lot of different clients it can get messy quickly.

Overall: I am a digital marketing strategist and company of one. I do not provide "design" services although I find what I can create in canva serve 90% of what my clients actaully need. I use the tempaltes to keep my own deliverabels on brand, but also use many of the features to create social media content and visuals for my client's ads.

Pros: I own a marketing firm, and sometimes, we need quick, beautiful graphics for various items. We don't offer graphic design to our clients as we refer them to talented designers, but for our own work, we needed the ability to turn out gorgeous designs quickly. Canva allows me to provide clients and ourselves with lovely, functional and easy designs like flyers and Facebook posts. I also have created Instagram story templates for our marketing purposes. While we don't use them for our clients, it has been indispensable for our own marketing and promotion!

Cons: Occasionally, I don't realize a design is a paid design and not free until I'm partly through designing it. I'd like there to be a way to search the templates and the free/paid versions.

Overall: Solved our problem and saved us money, which allows us to keep functioning and serving our clients, instead of pouring money into quick and simple designs. Canva has solved this in an easy and affordable way.

Pros: Love that it's free! Tons of great free images and templates to pick from. The templates in particular have helped when trying to create things I've never made before (like company brochures). Totally customizable with font sizes, layouts, and sizing. The magic resize feature has been really nifty - used to spend extra time figuring that out, but now it just takes a click. I also use the team sharing feature so that I can share responsibilities with coworkers and we're able to refer to the same archive when one of us is on vacation. Canva also has an easy to use mobile app that I just downloaded, and it's actually been really easy and helpful.

Cons: It can take a really long time to get the sizing of specific elements right, and I always seem to struggle with the clicking and dragging elements around to different places on the page. (The trick, I've learned, it to hold your cursor just above / just outside of the element you're trying to move, and then it seems to pick it up more accurately).

Overall: Overall, Canva has been an invaluable tool for marketing and social media for both my professional and personal lives. I've used it for Instagram posts, brochures, business cards, and even an ebook. I'd definitely recommend this tool to anyone looking to create quality, polished visual products for cheap (or even free).

Pros: It's simple to use and has lots of neat functions. It's fun to use and it's an essential tool for bloggers and designers. I love how they also provide lots of layout designs, dimensions, and templates.

Cons: It's lacking in advanced functionalities that could be useful if added in the future. For example...text cutouts, circular templates, 3D texts. Also, the image quality is reduced when downloading in jpeg, so it's better to download in PDF then export to JPEG on another program. Also, photos only retain their best quality when uploaded the first time. It automatically saves the uploaded photo in the gallery, but it doesn't save the original photo, so the next time you use the same photo, it comes out a bit blurry.

Overall: It helped me create lots of great designs for my blog.

Pros: Canva brings a whopping heap of quality graphic design capabilities to any user. For beginners, or non subject-area experts, graphic design can be daunting, but Canva simplifies the whole creative process. The variety of design templates on the platform is very impressive, and the toolset is very adaptable.

Another valuable aspect of Canva is the blog/tutorial section, which teaches a number of very helpful design principles. Users can find the answers to most questions there, and even gain some inspiration and insight along the way.

Overall, Canva is a great first step into the world of design. It's no substitute for full-fledged graphic design software, but it's certainly a bridge to bigger and better things. Any user can handle this platform.

Cons: Canva is limited, obviously. A lot of the design templates feel samey, or follow trends within the market. This is obviously not a bad thing, but that can make it difficult to make something that truly stands out. But, there are so many options available, and the tools are quite flexible, that even this slimmed down workflow can still produce some stunning work.

Overall: Flexible, stylish graphic design made easy. Beginners can jump into the design world, and after only a clicks can be creating colorful, sharp content for their business.

Pros: Canva is an excellent tool to develop a design, it gives us a great variety of designs and formats to work and create your own design in a phenomenal way from our browser or from your Android application or always be connected with canva.

canva allows us to publish and share the design that is being developed and allows us to download it in the format we want for its use, such as: png, jpg, pdf ....

It has a large number of designs or templates to work with and covers a broad aspect of what you want: logos, publications for social networks, documents, blog, e-books, marketing announcements ...

It allows us to develop designs in conjunction with a work team where the rights of modification and verification are established.

Cons: When developing a design, it can be difficult since it has no guidelines. sometimes the dimensions of our documents can be modified slightly. You can enjoy Canva for free, but it depends on your use and what you want to do can be expensive

Overall: excellent software to develop a web design from our browser or phone

Pros: It is so easy to make an image look great! There are good templates to help get you started but additionallly, there are so many great graphic elements and photos that can be integrated into the image. Most of the elements are either FREE or 1 dollar each. What a steal!!! Also, so a small monthly fee you can pay for Canva for Work which gives access to some additional features and elements. One of my favorite features is magic resize which resizes images into any format needed!

Cons: Occasionally there are bugs that cause the graphics to not download properly. Also, it can sometimes run slow since it is a web-based software. Finally, I wish there were more options to manipulate text; however, this is not a deal-breaker.

Pros: First, there are endless possibilities thanks to the numerous number of templates, perfectly organized in categories (social media content, marketing content, corporate creations, invitations...). Also, you can customize most of the features once you have chosen a template: pictures, font, size, colors, forms... while keeping good-looking content.

Cons: You cannot customize easily some "details" that are not really details for creators: it's not so easy to determine the size and dimensions of the while you want to have, and you can't really choose the quality of the exported file. Also, some teamplates are so popular that you often find them on Instagram and Facebook, so you should pay attention to customizations to avoid that.

Pros: Canva is a powerhouse of a product! It has become my go-to platform for all my social media graphic and sermon presentations! ( just to name a few)

-Templates for everything you could possibly ever need to design.

-A beautiful selection of pre-designed layouts to help in the creation process

-An endless supply of elements to make your graphics unique and interesting

-The price point is phenomenal for all the value you receive by upgrading from the free plan.

- Great customer service

Cons: I have nothing really negative to say about this product! My experience with it has been amazing and it has ultimately cost me a huge chunk of money annually since it has become my sole platform for design.

Pros: You can use this software no matter if you are a professional designer or just a beginner. Through its templates and design options you can let yourself be carried away by your imagination. Thanks to its specific templates for social networks or web pages, you do not have to worry about the measurements of your flyers. You can design under the mode of collaborator with your group of designers, as well as you can classify your designs and add unique aspects such as your logo, watermark or preferred typography.

Cons: When I am using the tool from my iPad device, sometimes the templates generate errors. On the other hand, if I am using a template that defines the design background and then add my watermark, the design background changes to the watermark, this happens to me when I use Canva from my iPad. Although the paid designs are usually cheap, but the platform does not allow online payment methods such as paypal or foreing currency different from the US dollar.

Overall: Easy of use, perfect to put your mind on free and artistic mode.

Pros: I love that it saves my last used templates so I can reuse them with new images and small changes. This allows me to keep types of images similar. I also love that I can resize my selected project to meet sizing requirements for different social platforms. It allows me to drag and drop and modify my images to fit and share quite easily.

Cons: I wish this product had the option to sample color from images or items (an eye dropper tool) so I could easily match up colors to keep them consistent. Currently I have to go to another software program to sample the color I want from the image and then go back and add it manually into the color planner to change it. This is tedious and my one main issue with the program.

Overall: I enjoy using the templates and making consistent social media images to share online. The magic resize option is fantastic and there are a large number of templates available to use in the pro plan.

Pros: Canva is intuitive and easy to use for the most part. As a marketer, Canva has lots of great features that I find useful for putting together graphics for blogs or website materials. Being able to create designs and download them as PDFs is very useful for creating ebooks/whitepapers. Overall a very convenient tool that does what you expect it to.

Cons: The support experience, or lackthereof, is terrible. I recently had a small issue where I tried to do something in Canva and it didn't behave as I expected it to. I tried searching the very limited support knowledgebase, and found nothing. On top of that, I spent 20 minutes looking around their support site as well as their main website - they don't post a phone number or support email ANYWHERE. There are no contact forms on the website or anything. So if by chance you have an issue that the support knowledgebase doesn't address, there is no way to get ahold of them. What started out as a minor issue ended up erasing all positive feelings I had towards Canva's product after searching for a long time to find a way to contact support directly and realized there is none.

Overall: Canva made it easy for me to put together marketing materials for our website, blog, ebooks, social media, and other digital content.

Cons: I would love it if canva's picture editing tools were a bit more polished, they are not the best I have ever used, I constantly find myself using illustrator to edit my pictures until I'm satisfied with them and then I add them to our canva projects.

Overall: If canva's picture editing were improved then it would render useless other graphic designing softwares, still it is incredible and I recommend it to any type of professional.

Pros: Canva is easy to use, never thought myself to be creative but with Canva I'm discovering a whole new side to myself. I have been able to create images in different formats by just magically have Canva resize it to the appropriate format. So I only have to create once and use it in many different formats for our social media channels. You can create book covers, posters, images for social media but also for Facebook events or LinkedIn header images and many more. You can also manually set the dimensions and work from there. You can also upload brand specific items such as fonts, colours and logos. You can use it for one person or set up a team so you can share design within a team.

Cons: In truth I haven't found anything that I didn't like about using Canva. It's always there and saves my design automatically. Saves me a lot of time. One thing I would like to see is a way to save my own used image dimensions.

Overall: Saved me a lot of time and more flexibility by not having to wait on an external designer.

Pros: There are a number of design templates to pick from, after which you simply bring on going and adjusting and altering them to precisely how you desire them to look. They have an actually big variety of graphics and icons that are in vector kind, so you can do whatever you like, in whatever size.

Cons: I think you might grumble about the number of the aspects need payment, however it is easy to understand. And if there is an aspect that you truly desire however cannot pay for, simply download a png. image from in other places and publish it.

Pros: I've used Canva on an almost daily basis for the last couple of years. It's completely free to use, it's extremely easy to make nice looking thumbnails and you can even edit photos in here. It also comes pre-loaded with nice looking templates.

Cons: Absolutely nothing. The fact that this software is free to use is mindblowing to me. Couldn't have asked for anything else in here.

I find it highly unlikely i'll ever use another software to create thumbnails, unless i'm working on bigger projects and need to use Photoshop etc.

Overall: I have never had any issues whatsoever with Canva. It always works, and it's very easy to use. If you want to create pictures for Facebook covers, YouTube thumbnails etc..look no further.

Pros: From the start Canva makes it easy to navigate its menus to get you started quickly making what you need to create. They take out the guess work of pixel dimensions and resolution by providing tons templates to get you started from social media sizes to documents, icons and banners. With one click you are in the creation stage ready to customize. From there the side navigation provides you with pre-made layouts that are well designed and trendy. It is extremely helpful to have these options if you aren't a designer but even if you are it serves as a great jumping off point for ideas or just making tweaks. It's very easy to customize the content from the template - changing out font, background image, colors etc...it can feel like a different piece altogether - so great customization! Once created it's very easy to download your image and has recommended download type but also gives you other useful options. So from start to finish they have made it as simple as you can to create content without much complication!

Cons: One issue I have ran into stems from making more complex documents - specifically with regards to aligning text and keeping spacing consistent. After working in something like Adobe InDesign where it's very easy to get lots of individual text items perfectly aligned Canva is lacking a feature that addresses that. So as long as you are keeping text in blocks it's fine - but if you have to split text into multiple blocks it can be become somewhat of an issue!

Pros: I'll list down everything that I loved about Canva.

1. Canva is super Easy to Use like you're drawing or painting on a Canvas.

2. If you want to update your Social Media Profile or you want to strengthen your Posts, Canva's built-in image size that will fit into your Social Media is great!

3. High-Quality Image! This is the nugget!

4. Lots and lots of High-Quality Images.

5. The UI & UX is amazing. You'll spend your time designing the perfect Idea because of Canva's awesome UI & UX.

6. Struggling to map your Idea? Canva has a built-in Templates. I mean a lot of pre-designed templates. Choose wisely!

7. The Typography feature is sweet as honey! Texts can speak with your Personal Branding and Canva can help you do that.

8. Good Background Templates.

9. You can customize the size of your Design. Bam!

10. Strengthen your Marketing Materials in Canva.

Cons: In my opinion, I'm more on the Illustration and Logo Side and I would love to have more options and logos on Canva.

An illustration is the one I loved most but it's limited on Canva. I would really be looking forward to seeing more Illustration and Logos.

Pros: I've been a graphic designer for a long time, and have also been a corporate graphic designer for a long time.One of the issues that I've continually run into is just a barrage of request for design work, with people not even knowing what they want. Canva has really helped my organization to allow people to play around with layouts and design, and then I can focus on bigger pieces of work.

Cons: Has its limitations, and I don't like that you have to pay for so many different kinds of upgrades, but again, it saves me so much time, it's worth it!

Pros: I have many good things to say about this software, starting because it is free, and it saves me time. Canva is an easy to use program, it is quite complete in its features, you could say that it has what you need when designing. It allows you to make business cards, edit photographs, image collage and many other things. You can create fun and varied designs. It stands out for its drag and drop function creating the best pieces

Cons: When a design is created in Canva, the dimensions for our documents can be slightly modified and this causes the originality of the initial design to be lost.

Overall: I love this software has been my best option when innovating, doing the best work with each of my designs and images. It gives me stability and security in the projects in which I have used it. My presentations are always the best since I've been using Canva. It's really nice.

Pros: Friendly versatile software for designing creative print and web materials of all kinds. Canva is extremely helpful to my team at work, where we have a three-person team without any team members trained in graphic design. I love the diverse templates for design inspiration, and the flexibility to buy single graphics/icons as needed. My team recently upgraded to Canva for Work to allow for easy resizing of designs, and for access to a broader library of graphics/icons. Canva is so user-friendly to learn and use that even my self-proclaimed tech-challenged boss taught herself to use it.

Cons: With the organization of the graphics/icon library, browsing freely can sometimes result in a long search... there seem to be many more icons than I have time to discover. Still, I'm glad the library is expansive and the search function works very well if you know what you're looking for.

Overall: With no formal training/experience, I can design high quality, engaging, creative print and web materials--for free or for a tiny cost.

Pros: - Thoughtfully put together UI / UX - Great features in terms of content library, stock images, design elements, templates, etc. - Amazing templates that provide constant inspiration & support throughout your design process - Easy to collaborate with team members, partners, etc. - Phenomenal mobile app - Nice organizational tools such as Folders which keep designs in their proper place for easy accessibility

Cons: - Designs when compared with AI (Illustrator) level work many times don't stand up in terms of quality - Web app & mobile app can occasionally crash or get clogged up, leaving you losing all the work you just completed

Pros: 1. The image design features are excellent.

2. Allows creation of professional presentations in a few quick and easy steps.

3. Very user friendly. You simply need to click a layout and add text.

4. Has a myriad of fonts, images, icons, banners and layouts to customize any design.

5. It now allows you to create animated gifs.

6. Upload of photos is as simple as dragging and dropping and can be customized easily into eye-catching frames

7. It is web-based and allows users to easily access their designs from anywhere.

8. Allows users to download the designs in many formats such as jpeg, png, animated gifs etc. But saving as PDF is very convenient as it's easier to present and offers a good, quality product.

Cons: 1. It often prompts you to refresh and leads to frequent lose to recent changes. This is the case when the internet connectivity is not strong.

2. If the design has many features, it will not save as an animated gif.

3. It does not allow a user to change the shape of a frame or resize it. It also doesn't allow changing the dimension of a defined shape.

Overall: Creative, bold and impressive designs and presentations created in the shortest time possible. My go-to design tool.

Pros: Canva has the student/educator option, which is what I use. It is free save for some premium features like certain stock images/animations, and the free version itself is fantastic. I have created resumes, presentations, business cards, blog graphics and facebook covers on Canva.

There are seemingly endless templates you can choose from, which is one of the main reason I keep coming back to Canva instead of Powerpoint or Prezi for initial inspiration. Seriously, the choices are amazing, from minimalist themes to heavy and formal designs, there is something for everyone. Once you've chosen a template, you can customize however you want, from having control of the font, images, and designs on the template. You can either use the built in image library to get stock images and clip arts which are numerous, or upload your own images or even connect your facebook account and pull your photos from there. You are not limited by a single template, you can even mix and match, which is really great. Finally, when you are done you can either share via social media platforms or download as PDF/JPEG to your devices.

If anyone has hit a roadblock in finding suitable themes for your documents, try out Canva and I am certain you will not be disappointed.

Cons: As of now, I have no complaints or concerns.

Overall: A digital playground of creatively designed templates to give you that inspiration you need to get started making presentations and other documents.

Pros: Canva helps even the least experienced designer (me) make simple and professional-looking logos, social media posts, and diagrams for my clients. It is simple to use and offers so many templates that I can take, modify, and add things to without compromising on quality. Also, I really enjoy that it's basically free until I need an upgrade..

Cons: The interface is a little clunky. Pages load slowly and there extra features I find unnecessary and distracting. Also, for some reason whenever you click on a link it opens a new tab. Also, you can't download a transparent png, but you might be able to on the paid version.

All in all, still 100% worth the free experience.

Overall: I have many clients who are only experiencing online marketing for the first time, whether because they just started their business or have only recently begun marketing on the internet. So they don't necessarily have the budget for logos but I still need one for their Yelp or Facebook pages. I use Canva to create these temporary solutions.

Canva is wonderful - highly recommend!

Pros: Canva is awesome. I've used it for a few years now and it just keeps getting better. I love that I can churn out quality images for use on our website, social pages, blog, etc and not need immense Photoshop skills or support. The Teams function is great for just that - working with folks on your team. Plus, being able to add in custom fonts, logos, images and brand colors makes it a breeze to keep everyone within the brand guidelines. I hope to never be without Canva!

Cons: Sometimes the layouts and images they provide can get a little stale. Just takes a little creativity to jazz something up though.

A powerful entry level tool that will get the design job done.

Pros: Canva is a great solution for people dabbling in design or who don't consider themselves designers but need to create content. They help take the guess work out of sizes for different formats (like a social media post vs a flyer for instance) providing you with a giant list of templates to get you started. The font selection and formatting is pretty great and feels modern. The incredibly large amount of images to choose from gives you some good options to create something fresh and modern without having to spend tons of time to find an image on a stock website.

Cons: Don't get me wrong; the navigation they have is great - but once you are in the designing phase of your project the left hand navigation that takes up 1/3 of the screen starts to feel a little overbearing. If there was a button to hide it or even a command shortcut it would help put the focus on the design and be a little less distracting.

Overall: When designers on staff don't have margin to get to smaller projects we send them to Canva to try and create what they need. So far it's worked about 75% of the time, creating less work for the designers and allowing the "client" in the scenario to take full creative control to make what they are thinking.

Pros: This is the software I use most for marketing and communication. It is easy to use, I've quickly shown the less technologically savvy members of my team how to use this software and they picked it up quickly.

Canva has tons of predesigned templates for almost any media size you would ever need. They also have a variety of free and low cost illustrations and images you can use to make the template work for your need. If you need to resize for different media, there is a setting that resizes your design almost immediately. Overall, there is no software as easy to use as affordable. Definitely worth the investment each month!

Cons: When the software is down it is difficult to find out information about why and how long the software will be down.

Pros: Brand features like Brand colors and fonts Ability to edit designs on one device and continue on another Free design templates for inspiration on the fly Direct connection to social media networks to post Android app has been launched which makes Canva even better As a frequent designer, Canva helps me and my team design graphics on the fly. We use it mostly for social media and content marketing but it is also good for general brand design and brand identity. With a simple interface, you can get used to it within a few mins of using it.

Cons: Design options can be limited Its difficult to upload new fonts if you are an advanced designer Layout of files and design options great Some design options have weird names and make it confusing to look for simple things On the web app, you cannot search for designs related to a keyword but you can do this on the mobile apps. Canva is a great tool but it lacks some advanced features for designers such as having custom color palettes, the ability to add fonts from other sources and exporting with layers. Overall it is great but could be better.

Pros: It's so simple that anyone can create nice graphics, even with no design experience. Canva has a huge library of templates for all kinds of print and web projects, and an even bigger library of stock photos and illustrations. Another feature that other similar software programs do not offer is all of your files are stored online vs your own hard drive, which is convenient to say the least!

Cons: If you're looking for design tools beyond editing size, placing photos or illustrations, adding text and changing fonts and colors, canva is not your best option. It is extremely limited in design tools.

Pros: Canva is great for graphic projects that need to be produces and ready to go fast. I love the template library - both for layout inspiration and for elements that are easy to insert into a layout I'm designing. Canva is great for collaborating with other staff at our organization and makes it really easy to share and make copies of designs.

The template library is also amazing. Many of the design template are great as is or a great springboard when I need some inspiration.

Canva is a great choice for our staff members that aren't as design savvy. I've used Photoshop, Illustrator, Gimp, and Inkscape and can jump from one design program to another with ease but it's nice to have a very simple solution like Canva that I can hand off small design projects to staff who don't have experience with those programs.

Cons: There are some obvious limitations with a cloud-based software like Canva. I will always have a vector and raster editing software on my computer for more complicated projects. But for everyday use, you can do very well with Canva in the place of more expensive software like Photoshop or Illustrator.

Another draw back is that sometimes another staff member will make changes to a shared design rather than making a copy first. This can't be undone.

Pros: Canva makes it incredibly simple to create professional, high impact images for personal and commercial use. My favorite features are the ready to use templates with pre-set measurements for social media sharing as well as the customizable layouts. Also, their customer service goes above and beyond and are really committed to customer satisfaction.

Cons: Overall, I love Canva, but if I had to make a couple recommendations, it would be:

1. When using the photo grid layouts, it would be nice if there were a way to align the photo the way that you'd like. Right now when you insert a photo, it automatically sets the focal point.

2. Having a background grid in place would be incredibly helpful when trying to properly line up elements.

3. Providing a "micro" plan would be nice, as I tend to only use this a few times a month and only occasionally need to upgrade to a pro plan.

Pros: It's a perfect simplified alternative to photoshop and illustrator while still being able to accomplish a lot. Templates are awesome, very little learning curve, for the most part has a lot of options.

Cons: There is ZERO customer service. Multiple members of my team, myself included, have sent about a dozen messages for help, product partnership opportunities, suggestions, and there has been no response. The program also has A TON of bugs. Every time I use it there is at least 1 technical issue with every design. We use canva for almost every graphic and I have a huge list of simple suggestions that would make this program amazing.

Overall: Easy quick and decently customizeable graphics. Templates help jog creativity, can do it from your phone, even though the phone version is super buggy.

Pros: The ability to move objects, pictures, and text around within a grid, keeping everything symmetrical in such an easy way is something you expect to payHundreds or even thousands of dollars for. Canva Is by far the best starter program for graphic design out there today

Cons: I refer to this as a starter graphic design program because it's missing some features that you need to use higher priced software for, like removing the background of an image or cutting out or manipulating certain parts of an image, as opposed to the entire object in whatever image you are designing. If Canva allowed us to remove backgrounds from images we may use it full time as the go-to graphic design software as it includes practically everything you need to do adequate work.

Overall: It is so easy to use there is a steep learning curve like other graphic design programs. It allows someone to start designing within minutes with no prior experience in design or with the program

Cons: The only things I've found annoying are that it seems you can only add one hyperlink to block of text if you're trying to create a PDF. If you add multiple links, they'll all be the same. You can work around this by adding multiple text blocks. I also find it runs slow at times but it's not that often.

Pros: Ease of Use, Some Free Features, Great Designs, Simplicity. It's always great to create all the social media graphics I need if I want them to look hip, since I don't have full Photoshop skills as of now. I recommend it to anyone trying to up their social media game if they don't have a graphics artist or graphic skills.

Cons: Sometimes it can be tricky to unpack some design elements to delete things like a subtitle to a main title, or get everything to match up. Sometimes it can be a tiny bit frustrating if a design catches your eye but it's a paid design and you aren't willing to pay.

Overall: I've been casually using Canva for a couple years for my own personal social media endeavors as well as business endeavors. Once I had to make a picture in an emergency for an urgent announcement and with Canva I did it within 10 minutes, and it would have taken much longer had I tried to use Photoshop, since I would have had to look up how to do things compared to Canva is, I believe, a tool any age group could learn within a relatively short period of time.

Pros: Canva has so many features and all these features are mostly FREE. You can create banners, collages, put together a graphical ad or even an infographic, and yet all such features are free as far as I know. The more exclusive templates and graphics are not free, but even then, Canva is so user-friendly with so many cool features that I don't hesitate to say it is the best online graphics editor out there. I have never had any need to ask their support for help, but I assume since they give so much for free, there is no real need to contact the support at all. I assume the support would not be responding too quickly, but I cannot fault Canva in any case!

Cons: As many features as Canva has, I wish they would add more Font types, and give the ability to fine-tune an image even more. Things like cropping out the background and repositioning an image can of course be added or improved. None of these are big issues though. Canva is still a great (free) service for doing your graphics work online.

Overall: I get to do a lot of simple to intermediate level graphics work on Canva quickly and for free. I have wondered how these guys make money and I hope the great free service provided by Canva continues on. I would not recommend Canva for complex work, but for the average user, I am sure Canva works just great.

I've used it for everything from logo design, flyers for parties, social media posts, HR organizational documents, permit planning, document design, TV displays, and so much more!

Cons: There truly aren't many things that are negative about the product at all. It is constantly improving to fix bugs or any issues users have and they always take suggestions on things to improve upon.

Pros: This software is available across multiple mobile platforms (ios and android as well as tablets), easy to use software, and allows so much space for creativity. You can share templates with the world as well as use some from inspiration. This software has a free option which can be used without needing to upgrade. If you need a few extra bells and whistles, there is a monthly and a yearly upgrade fee that is affordable! Huge image library, allows you to upload your own photos and icons, allows you to create a brand guide, and has many premade templates that you can use for your brand.

Cons: I wish the app had more options for mobile devices as far as editing and creativity but none the less, it's still a great product.

Overall: I can create many different designs ranging from images, icons, and even logos. I can take it wherever I go and it helps me keep my brand unified.

Drag and drop features and many high quality graphics to choose from.

Cons: The only thing I don't like and I assume they are working on this, when uploading the graphics to facebook it looks a bit fuzzy. The quality seems to go down once posted to social platforms. Hopefully they can clear that up soon.

Overall: All of my graphics are easy to create and I have awesome presentations for my clients.

Pros: Intuitive and clear interface. If you can drag and drop, you've already mastered canva!

Whatever your need, Canva has a template for you, and that sure will save you more than 50% of the work. This way you can concentrate on the most creative and fun part of it!

Images and typography are protagonists in today's social design. Canva gives you a wide variety of photographs and types of letters for your designs. Although the best resources are paid, almost everything can be solved with the free ones.

Something very important: the graphic resources are up to date with the current design trends. Your jobs will always look cool, with little effort.

Canva reminds you of the colors you have been selecting while you work, helping you to maintain consistency in your designs. Very useful.

You can share your work with your work team.

When downloading your work, there are enough options: PNG, JPG and PDF.

There is always someone who already did it. There are lots of tutorials and learning material available on the platform's web and blogs

You do not need an image editor to give your personal touch to the photographs. Canva includes a good variety of filters, as well as allowing you to make particular adjustments (brightness, tone, contrast, saturation, etc.).

Cons: In general, there is nothing bad to say about Canva, just keep in mind that, as expected, the customization options are not available for free accounts. However, you do not miss anything that prevents you from doing a good job.

And of course, do not expect very advanced editing options, like those you would find in standard design software (it is not designed for that either).

Overall: No more headaches to create your day-to-day images. You only need the internet and a little creativity.

With a minimum of skill (and good taste) you will always get images that look cool and fashionable.

A saving of considerable time and money.

Totally love Canva!

Pros: Love love love this web based design tool. It has amazing easy to use, dummy proof design templates with a variety of options - Instagram, Facebook, print ads, flyers, Biz cards - presentations - Anything you like. Great choice of free imagery and if you watch to step up a notch - you can pay few dollars for a couple of great images. Can't recommend enough for anyone creating advertising or presentations. Great mobile app

Cons: Sometimes Instagram download version flips the image on a mobile device - so can get a little frustrating.

Pros: Canva is fun. I love the pre-built templates for the various social media channels. Uploading images is easy. Using the templates or illustrations can be customized for my own use quickly. Colours can be easily changed. Elements can be grouped for easy repositioning. I especially love the integration with eClincher which lets me create content first with eClincher and then I can go directly to Canva and create the graphics to go with it. This is a super great integration that saves time and aggravation.

Cons: Canva is usually quite easy to use but; finding the custom resize is not as obvious as it could be. I always think that I should be able to do this from the "RESIZE" tab, but no, I can only do this from the "FILE" tab. The "RESIZE" button only allows for non-custom resizing. When I do finally go to "fILE" - I find that I can do everything in the "RESIZE" tab including custom resize. Why is there the duplication? It would be helpful if the text "Use custom dimensions" be in BOLD so that I don't get distracted by the other headings. I wash there was an option similar to the change all colours to be able to change all the fonts instead of having to change each element.

Pros: I've learned a lot about type pairing and hierarchy from using Canva. Just seeing how they arrange elements in their templates has been the springboard I needed for many design projects. I love that they are always rolling out new templates.

Cons: Organizing photos is such a pain. It is so tedious, they need to create a new media organizer. They also need to organize templates better. It's just an unlimited scrolling experience right now and you never know when a cluster of holiday templates will appear, or what you'll get next.

Pros: I love how I am able to upload my own fonts and images and keep my brand info at a glance for easy access and branding. I also love the auto resize feature!

Cons: I don't like how the app version for the iPhone will not let you choose your own fonts to create images with. It never reads them correctly and always changes them to a different lremade font. That's frustrating. Making PDF eBooks are capped out at a few pages, and you have to download several PDFs and use a PDF combined website to merge bigger files together.

Pros: Canva is a very versatile program that allows you to create in an instant all kinds of ideal images for social networks as well as presentations. It has a variety of very useful predetermined graphics. Really Canva makes us fly creativity. It is very easy to navigate and walk around its menus since its interface is simple.

Cons: One element to improve is the one that has to do with aligning the text. Sometimes I find it a problem to do it. Sometimes the original dimensions of our documents also vary. Beyond that I find no major problems with Canva.

Overall: I believe that the main benefit that Canva has given me is to have maximized my creativity. Working with this program is fun and functional

Pros: There are so many things I love about this software, but I especially appreciate the guide lines that pop up to help with centering and spacing.

Cons: The only con I can think of is that sometimes when I try to undo things with the control+Z command, it reverts back to a few steps prior. But that's a pretty minor con!

Overall: I use Canva just about every day for creating work graphics, and I love it. It's so simple to use, and I love that it offers guides for centering and spacing, as well as plenty of fonts and backgrounds to choose from. Highly recommend this software!

Pros: It is very useful to speed up visual work with great quality in a very short time for my social networks. With great designs very professional and attractive that both my love, and my followers. The tutorials on the use of the tools that the software has helped me with my goals.

Cons: Although there are many designs to choose from, there are others that are paid and these are charged individually instead of making a package of several designs for an affordable cost. The image search panel is usually very extensive and it is continually exhausting to select something in specific.

Overall: It has solved me several times in making publications with great impact of interest for my social networks, with attractive content and always with something new to contribute in a simple and useful way. I recommend it to people who do not have much knowledge of design programs that often require time and effort to complete the objective.

Pros: Canva lets me create print-ready brochures, flyers, and presentations with high-quality graphics. The tool offers a great deal of flexibility in designing as per our branding guidelines. As a monthly subscriber, we get access to tons of images and fonts. Canva has plenty of great looking templates that can be used as starting points. One can resize their work to standard dimensions across different social media platforms. Canva also offers on-screen tips that guide you through steps. Once the work is done, downloading is very easy and simple.

Cons: The sharing feature leaves a bit to be desired. When colleagues have tried to use what I created as a template, they have run into issues such as not being able to edit what I shared.

Overall: I have found Canva to be a powerful designing tool, with a low learning curve. It has enabled me (an amateur designer) to independently craft good looking designs and images that can be used in our blogs and social media campaigns. It has saved the time of our in-house designer who can focus on more important work.

Pros: We use Canva on a weekly basis to create professional looking social media posts and presentations. As a free user I still get access to most of the best features that include downloading, access to a free image gallery and fonts. Love this tool, it's a great alternative for anyone who wants to create their own ads but doesn't want to spend lots on photoshop.

Cons: There is nothing I can think of that I don't like about Canva. There used to be a small issue where it didn't autosave changes quickly enough, but they rectified this now. It's great to see they are always making improvements to speed and functionality. I'm a big fan.

Pros: I tried to leave Canva for a cheaper alternative and I went straight back. That says it all really. People have often asked me who my designer is so they can hire them and I usually proudly say, it's me + Canva. There are great templates, it's intuitive and very powerful. Highly recommended for anyone needing to make graphics quickly.

Cons: I don't like how hard it is to organize and navigate images. It would hugely benefit from a better folder system, rather than the one now which functions more like a live feed of images that you can categorize if you remember. I would love to be able to find and organize my images more easily, especially as I have thousands of files in there now. I find this even worse on the Android App - to clone an old image to make a new one it can take minutes to scroll down to find the right thing.

Pros: Canva is an incredible resource for any small business. If you're not trained or familiar with something like Photoshop, Canva is an incredibly easy to use tool that allows you to create almost anything. I've used it for graphics, menus, proposals and much more. Highly recommended!

Cons: Some limited functionality on the free plan. Good thing though is that they provide a 30 day free trial and the paid plan is charged per month which is super reasonable for all you're getting.

Pros: I love that you can use free features and it makes formatting from your own pictures super easy. Canva makes a professional graphic in a few minutes. The possibility of cooperation on design with your team "on the fly" is quite convenient and works just fine. As for me, Canva is used for making quick sketches for projects, presentations for clients and for office reporting and projects.

Cons: Some of the purchases in applications have a huge price; they really are not worth it. Such a trifle, but you still can not crop images or drawings with standard Canva features. I guess you can add this to the update.

Pros: Canva is an online, template + customization type of tool. As such you can get some beautiful results very quickly. If you're lucky enough to have a template that's close-ish to what you want. Since there are blank templates you are not limited... but I don't see too much advantage between using a blank page template and a 'regular' graphics program. You can upload your own designs and logos, etc, so it's pretty

Cons: There are so many options of templates to start from that it can be intimidating --- and the features to narrow down the search aren't that good so end up flipping page after page. (A tip is to pick one that's the right aspect ratio and be offered choices that are similar -- that's the best way to quickly narrow the field.)

Overall: A low-risk, low-cost, and occasionally project-saving tool!

Pros: Easiest tool on the market to design just about anything: social media posts, greeting cards, ebooks, web graphics, invitations, you name it. Oh, and it's free. The tool comes with customizable templates, beautiful ready-to-use fonts, and images. The possibilities are endless. I use this tool in my marketing job and in my personal life.

Cons: The Canva for Business has features that I really enjoy, but don't want to pay for. One of the features is "magic resize" which allows you to take something you've already created and resize it into a different dimension. In the free Canva version, you can't do this; you have to re-design and start over. I would love if this was part of the free version because I feel like I worked hard to design something, why can't I resize it for free? Otherwise, no complaints.

Pros: Canva is a completely FREE program (if for personal use) and a great way to design without much artistic background or technology skills. They have tons of templates to choose from and with the ability to upload your own images, you can make anything! You have the ability to reposition, recolor, or add new items to your design as well. I am versed in the Adobe programs (Photoshop, Illustrator, InDesign, etc.), but sometimes when I need an idea or something put together quickly, I turn to Canva.

Cons: Some of the items in the templates are premium. It's annoying to pick a template and realize you have to pay for pieces of it. However, Canva has to make money somehow. You also have the option of searching for a similar element on Google and uploading it to Canva. Though I will say, some of the items on Canva are hard to find anywhere else.

Overall: I am able to create content quickly through templates that allow me to adjust the design and give off a professional design appearance.

Overall: It helps me create many of the graphics for my business.

Pros: ProPresenter is easy to set up and use and works great. For most churches, the simple ability to easily display quality song lyrics, sermon notes, and videos is all they need, but ProPresenter does much more. From highly customizable stage displays and timers to Planning Center integration and multiple organization tools for content, ProPresenter is full of features to give your media team the best presentation possible.

Cons: Over the years, I have had a few bugs come up in ProPresnter that have been pretty annoying and hard to work around. It was nothing major and their customer support team helped quickly, but one of the bugs made it so that I had to entirely rebuild our database to fix the error. This doesn't happen often, but would definitely be the thing I liked the least!

Pros: The best thing about Canva is that it is incredibly user friendly. I appreciate the numerous design layouts, photos, fonts, and design features. When we need a quick project or social media post done, I can ask anyone on my team to do it and don't have to wait for someone from the design team to be available. Canva is a dream for start ups! Plus they have so many quality free functions, there is no reason not to use it!

Cons: The only con I've found is that help is not readily available, at least in our experience. To be fair, we really haven't needed that much help, but I don't rely on their customer support if I'm having a problem. We also had the site crash a few times which was frustrating but in the 2 years we've been using that, it's only happened a small handful of times.

Pros: This software is pretty easy to use once you know the basics. It allows you do add your own photos, or use free/paid photos within the software. You can also add icons and other things available within the system. You can quickly duplicate your work to create quick social media posts which allows you to simply change the text in the duplicate formats.

Cons: It would be nice for Canva to offer even more free pics to use in your photographic creations. This would allow for even more great options in creating products.

It is very convenient for me to choose nice, artistic fonts which are already built to this software.

Pros: Although I've been a Graphic Designer for over 8 years, sometimes, you just need to whip something together quickly for Social Media. Canva is perfect for this. You have hundreds of free templates, where you can easily create effective creative for a client without drowning alot of time into a project. This is perfect for when you have a last-minute event or sale you need to push online within the hour. The built-in photos and illustrations saves hours of design time.

Cons: I wish there was more functionality with text in the Free version. I haven't used the paid version and imagine you could get more functionality there. I haven't had the opportunity to upgrade yet, but I hope to within the next 6 months, now that they've added animated GIFs/video capabilities.

Pros: Canva is a free online tool that has a very intuitive and easy to understand interface. It provides users with a variety of customizable templates to design all types of web content, such as logos, banners, images for social networks, etc. It is a really useful tool to work in a team because it allows collaborative designs with 10 members per team, in addition, it offers 1GB of storage to store all types of files.

Cons: Canva only has basic design functions, if the user requires a more professional and accurate result, he must resort to other more complete design tools such as photoshop and illustrator. In addition to working in canva there is a risk that the quality and resolution of the image will be altered.

Overall: Canva is my best ally when creating simple designs, I like it for its speed and ease of use. My experience has been very rewarding, when implementing a marketing campaign web content is essential and this tool has allowed me to create incredible designs for my clients.

They have a nice selection of customer fonts and the tool is super easy to use. You can jump right in, creates a cool images, and download it in a few different formats.

Cons: The number of free images, icons, fonts, and more is VERY limited. While they have a cheaper membership option than most), I don't really feel like it's worth the price. You can upload images and icons to make up for that, but sometimes the upload do not look great and are pixelated.
