Pros: It's easy to use, gives great perspective and gets the point across to clients. The greatest tool to use for quick changes and edits to client ideas and spaces. I have used many programs and this one eliminates all headaches from other programs that seem to be way too advanced when all you need is to display ideas. Great for pricing and itemizing client projects. I will never use any other product. I used Olioboard religiously and this program is Olio on steroids and anyone can use it! Saying I love this program is an understatement and the creators, take time to train everyone and answer any questions one might have. Best customer service ever.

Cons: There are very few things I do not like because the program has been updated so much but the fact that I cannot duplicate items using keyboard shortcuts can sometimes slow me down but there is a duplicate button so I shouldn't complain. I wish we could crop color swatches for creating half walls and such, but then again, you can use the adjust tool to skew the shapes. There really isn't a lot that hinders me in creating a project.

Overall: It has been a fantastic experience. The fact that there are now libraries from vendors I use frequently helps to save me time trying to find images and download them to my computer in order to upload them to the program. Same with Paint color libraries. The Add to Design Files bookmark tab is incredible and a genius tool that I have never seen with any other program. If you haven't seen what it is, you can view helpful videos. Again, customer service has been incredible and two of the reps are great at walking you through steps and getting back with you instantly, especially using the messaging dialog box in the program. If I had to rate my experience out of 10 with 10 being the best, my experience would be a 100.

Pros: We have been using DesignFiles for a year or more and we have been very happy with it. One of the representative's customer service is the absolute best! We plan on using it even more since we are starting to launch an E-Design division of our business. They only thing that would make it better is if we could do actual 3D drawings and floor plans using our client's room measurements. We have to do them in a separate program and then import all the information. We would definitely pay more for this feature.

Cons: I wish that we could precisely size multiple items the same using actual dimensions like you could in the previous version of the software. As in all the photos could be set at a certain dimension.

It would be great if once we crop, manually remove background or correct the color range of an item, it would stay that way in our library so when we use it again we would not have to do that all over again.

I would love it if the program saved the email addresses after we enter it once so that we would not have to look up our clients email address every time we want to sent them a new design for other rooms.



These things aren't really cons, they are more my wish list!

Overall: Love it!

Pros: I like the ease of importing items to my library and being able to call up categories (rugs, etc). It's client-friendly - allowing boards to be emailed directly to my clients and having them comment back is very helpful. Also like the shop it page for lower-budget clients.

Cons: There are only two things I don't like about this program. The first is that on almost every board, I have images that "ghost". It doesn't matter where they are sourced from, the client can't see some on the board and have to scroll down to shop it page to see all items. It's the thing that makes me look to other programs to be honest, because it looks unprofessional. The second thing is that even though there is a 3D option which is great, I cannot pull outer edges of an image like a rug to appear correct or say a piece of furniture on the side wall of a board. I know it's not a render software, but if it had this feature I wouldn't have to use other programs to do that.

Overall: I overall like DesignFiles and love being able to show a completed design board. It does help to present my ideas to my client in a professional manner without having to make a manual board.

Pros: I love how easy it is to create concept boards. It's super easy to clip products using the DesignFiles extension. I love that I can hide pricing or whole products from my clients (for those trying to "shop me"). It's ridiculously easy to insert the widget onto my websites and social media accounts. And it's just as easy to create design packages. I love the incorporated questionnaire and the vivid concept boards.

Cons: It's time consuming removing the background from products manually and cropping only works horizontally and vertically but not free form or just diagonal. The viewing space when editing a project is impeded by the product drawer and the function menu. I wish it were easier to angle paint as well. Again it can only remain in square form which can be irritating. It would be nice if I could overlay my company's name over my concept boards (unless I'm missing something).

Overall: I've been able to EASILY incorporated eDesign into my decorating business! This allows me to reach clients all over the country. Before incorporating eDesign I'd miss out on clients who didn't live in my service area or who couldn't afford full service. Now, I'm getting an additional stream of revenue. It's nice not leaving money on the table or going broke trying to make it!

Pros: I love Design Files! It is so helpful to have everything that I need to send professional concept packages to my clients. The web clipper makes it easy to grab images, information and pricing for any product online and the editing features allow me to control what I want my clients to see. The new room rendering application is great to show clients what their space will look, with the actual pieces. This is extremely helpful from a visual standpoint and so much easier than photoshop.

Cons: The only con that I have is I would like to be able to create invoices for my clients. Hopefully this is coming soon...

Overall: The team is amazing! They are constantly striving to be innovative with Design Files and take feedback seriously. There have been so many updates and new features since the initial launch of the site and with every change, the program gets easier to use. It is extremely professional and worth every penny!

Overall, I am very happy with Design Files.

Pros: Design files allow me to be able to streamline my design work and communicate/collaborate with clients virtually. This has helped my business immensely. I do have a few things that I dislike/ wish that Design Files could offer so I recently looked into switching to another program. However, after researching other programs out there I felt that Design Files was the most affordable, simple to use and is currently the best program out there for virtual design.

Cons: I wish that you could customize things more, for example, the questionnaire, emails, the look for the site etc. my primary dislikes are that you can't provide coupon codes, that the chat doesn't carry over throughout the design and that you can't create a standard title block within the program.

Overall: Overall, I am happy with the program. However, If another program came available that would offer me these options (for the same price)I would most likely switch to another program that offered more customization.

Pros: Interface and ease of use

Easy to clip items from sites

Export image and PDF is amazing, we use it all the time

Being able to duplicate designs is key!

Being able to re-order boards

Cons: Took us a while to properly set-up accounts so everyone could see all boards

These are more wish list items but would be nice to be able to select multiple images to re-size/delete/move

Would like to be able to clip multiple images (colors of something) off a site without having to create a new product each time.

The surface area for boards seems very small and we're cramming everything into a small space in the app. We often shrink it down, then re-size it

Would love to use delete button as well as trash can to remove items on boards

Overall: We are able to create boards very quickly, search easily, and send presentations to client right from the app. This is huge! Love the ability to turn off pricing and linking, so clients are focused on the products.

Pros: The ability to create a room set simply with cut out features, sizing options etc. Work can be ordered into client projects, stored for later reference. Pricing, shop it features...long list. This has revolutionised my small design business. I have yet to use all of the available features!

Cons: No floor plan drawing option although can import but would rather have the facility

The cutting out could still be improved

No cropping feature on paint colours, simply sizing up or down. Not enough.

More room sets please, possibly some UK home sets?

I would like a folder option to file finished work...by client

Overall: Positive from the outset. If you do not use CAD this is a great tool for any design business.

Pros: I think the thing I love the most is having the DesignFiles Browser Clipper. Although I really like the vendors on this site it's so helpful to have the flexibility to clip products from outside sources. The download presentation with shoppable links is incredibly professional...LOVE it (and my clients love it too!) Also love being able to organize all of my projects in one place...it's really like having my own virtual office space.

Cons: I truly wish there was a way to place products in a room without having to search for something that has just the right angle so you can get the design perspective right. It really wastes a lot of time searching. It's especiallu frustrating when you find something that's perfect for a design but because you can't adjust it and change the shape to fit the space you're working on you have to find something else. This is ALWAYS a problem with rugs. I've gotten so frustrated that I rarely use them in 3D room designs.

Overall: DesignFiles has given me the opportunity to work on some decorating projects that I wouldn't have been able to complete without it. It's really inspired me to work on new decorating goals and try to grow my business.

Pros: I love that this software helps organize my projects in a professional easy to use way.

Cons: I believe there may be a few issues (or maybe I haven't figured it out) on organizing the products. I often want to delete some of my items since I collect items first then play with the ideas. My lists get long and cumbersome.

Also I wish there were a way to not trigger emails with every comment made on the boards.

Overall: I love this tool and use it with most of my clients. I think my clients like the simple links and like to interact directly on the boards. It helps me so much as an independent designer as I cannot afford much but I need to have professional presentations.

Pros: As wedding and event designers, there really isn't a program out there specifically for us in regards to creating stunning, customizable design boards for our clients. DesignFiles provides all of the easy-to-use tools and resources we desperately needed to make a program our own. Telling a story through a visual component, like a design board, is crucial to obtain and build on a client's trust - in our case, for the biggest day of their lives oftentimes. With DesignFiles, we are able to tangibly "recipe" our centerpieces (for example) by building them bloom-by-bloom and/or with hard goods accessories. This is a break-through for event design technology, and one we could not be more excited about!

Cons: The only issue we've run into is sometimes having the program be a little slow to catch up. For instance, if we click and drag an object with our mouse, sometimes the object may not follow, or may take a while. Other than that, it is flawless.

Overall: After transitioning over to DesignFiles from Olioboards, we are thrilled with the additional features it offers and the support we have received. So far, A+!

Pros: I love walking into a client's home and showing how interactive DesignFiles can be. It's easy to use, so practical and convenient. I especially like having access to the paint colors. I like the use of the designer clipper. It has helped me create an extensive library from items across the country. I love the webinars!!

Cons: I would like to see more vendor options than the ones provided. Perhaps more upscale like Restoration Hardware, Blu Dot, more lighting, flooring and fabric options, too.

Overall: Outstanding. Whenever I've had a issue, DesignFiles has been right on top of it. Their customer service chat tab is great and has helped me in times when I needed an immediate answer. Everyone is really helpful and friendly and open to suggestions.

Pros: I like DesignFiles because it is simple to use, very efficient to show clients the color scheme and design layout of a room with 2D and 3D options, and my clients love the fact they can shop products that I recommend.

Cons: I wish we had more options with rotating the items so I can place them in different ways. Also, we need a feature to be able to erase / change attached images on the project details page.

Overall: I enjoy working with DedignFiles because it's a great platform that allows me to show clients my design scheme and layout. I love the clients questionnaire page, and ability to write notes on each item that I pick for them. It's a wonderful platform for communicating well with clients, so I can achieve a final design tailored to my clients needs and taste

Cons: I would like MY Library to Update automatically when added to.

I would like to move around the board to see all the edges without going back to APP.

I would like to be able to categorize my Library by items.

Pros: DesignFiles stands out for it's complete business solution, supporting the business of design to the creative rendering and sourcing.

Cons: Would love to see more brand collections preloaded into software database and product library- would save enormous time and offer incredible design opportunities without having to load personal libraries. Style categories and/or brands (recognized retailers and to-the-trade designer brand resources)

Overall: As an experienced developer of design technology, I researched many online design software solutions for my new business, EurDesign Studio. DesignFiles stood out for it's intuitive platform design, personalized business portal and exceptional visualization tools for interior design. The ability to brand my entire Client experience, including thoughtful marketing tools, and integrate the online design program seamlessly within my website were ideal. I appreciate DesignFiles commitment to product improvements and tutorials too!

When I needed support- the executive quickly responded with a personalized video tutorial! Exceptional - very pleased to partner with DesignFiles!

Pros: Easy to use, straightforward. Only program I know of like this. Very handy! Great customer support as well.

Cons: More functionality would be great. Perspective rugs would be awesome, and the "Remove Background" feature is kind of useless unless your item is a perfect square or rectangle. Still finding myself having to go into Photoshop to erase a lot of shadows, which really adds to the time because then you have to manually import everything instead of using your handy bookmark.

Overall: Overall a great program, use it ever day. Excited to see it progress!

Pros: It's so easy to clip products, create design boards, and share them with clients. DesignFiles keeps conversations organized, makes it easy to filter what information clients can see, and delivers a professional, easy-to-use shopping list.

I use all these features for e-design work. For full service, I use the design board and pdf creator, with hidden shop links. So fast and easy!

Cons: There are a few minor functions of the design board builder that feel a bit clunky, like having to mouse over the delete icon rather than being able to hit delete on the keyboard. But I've never submitted that request so maybe that's on me!

Overall: Sheilah is fantastic! Available and responsive. Takes your feedback to heart.

I also love being able to accept payments from clients directly through the site to make the entire process easier and a one stop shop type experience. I actually love that it is fairly simplistic compared to other sites out there which usually means less room for malfunctions or clients having difficulty navigating. I am able to upload my own presentations or create presentations directly on the website and am able to run my business with complete control.

Pros: Love how you can manipulate objects. Love paint options! Room options! I like that it is iphone friendly for clients to see their design from their phones. I love the add text feature.

Cons: Although items can be sourced directly from design files from certain vendors, most of the pictures chosen to represent the items are not the most user friendly as far as having back grounds. Sometimes I will still have to go to the website and scroll through their pictures of the item to find one that has a white back ground. Other than that I am LOVING this program compared to Olioboard. I feel like Olioboard provided a great training course to be able to use design files too!

Overall: Over all, its like you read my mind on all the things I would have liked Olioboard to have. I really like this program.

Pros: Design files makes designing every client's room not only easy, but enjoyable. It is so easy to use any item that either I or my clients find online and clip it right into my library. I love the options available for customizing the site with my own branding, as well as customizing what my clients see. Everything works together seamlessly. Customer support has been top notch, and I feel very secure in their hands.

Cons: I wish I could crop the images more closely for the pieces that don't offer images of it one. almost like tracing it's outline and crop it. It would also be nice to have the option to angle pieces better, but I can't fault DF for that.

Overall: Design Files has made eDesign so much fun, that I could seriously sit and design with it all day and be happy!

Pros: It allows me to create beautiful design boards for clients and has all the products in the design for the client to easily buy and budget

Cons: It only has US sites incorporated so I have to be careful as a Canadian designer to bring in all products available in Canada. I've run into times where I added something from the catalog in design files only for the client to come back to me and say the shipping was more than the product itself because it was in US dollars. Also you still can't pivot the furniture to get different views so planning a room in the orientation it will be in real life is difficult

Overall: It solves my problem of creating beautiful design boards but takes me a lot longer since I'm Canadian as I have to manually add all my pieces because the catalog is pretty useless to me.

Cons: I don't like that my brand fonts are not available (Questrial and Centrury Gothic). I'd also like to see more room backgrounds, and I'd LOVE an option to make templates for sharing on social media.

Overall: Really great. As I mentioned, the executive has always been super willing to help and always responds quickly.

Pros: The DesignFiles program is easy to use for all levels of creativity and computer skills. I am a seasoned interior designer that grew up on learning how to draw by hand. This program makes it so easy to present designs to clients and it's also a lot of fun!

Cons: I believe that editing pictures for your own library is the most difficult since you have to edit the picture first and sometimes complicated backgrounds are hard to erase. I find this mostly on pieces that have long legs or open shelves, etc.

Overall: I have had assistance by Reps They have both been so eager to help and they respond so quickly. Rep even uploaded to my computer to help me with some technical advice.

Cons: Would be nice to have a French version! I will be working on something so my French Canadian customer can have all the details in French.

Overall: With this application my work as been reduced and my presentations are more effective. Everything that I need to share with my customer for their projects could be review and update so easily.

Pros: I love the flexibility to add my own products. That is not an option in a lot of software that I have seen. That is critical to my business.

Cons: I want to link my customers back to purchase their items from me instead of going to the retailer directly. A lot of my business comes not only from sale of items, but rental, so its a really big deal. Designfiles isn't set up that way. I had to get pretty creative to make it work and frankly it adds a lot of manual steps for my clients. Maybe an API of some sort with trade partners would solve the problem...not sure.

Overall: Overall, its been great. The tool is easy to use and convenient.

Pros: It's useful for web based back and forth conversations with my interior design clients. I like that they can approve or reject items directly in Design Files and they can also make comments on each item. I also like that the clipper does a decent job of removing backgrounds behind items so that I have less "noise" on my mood boards, without the hard work of removing the background myself.

Cons: It seems like it's still in development phase and there are improvements that could be made to make it even more useful and intuitive.

Overall: It's been good! I would recommend it for the purpose of building mood boards.

Pros: What I like most about Design Files is that it captures all of the entities I need to run my e-design business on one platform. In addition, hands down, DF has the best customer service of any company I have ever done business with. They listen to every suggestion and often implement them.

Cons: Design Files is relatively new. Therefore, there are some features that they are still introducing.

Overall: One of the largest issues with designing today is the issue for the client of "too many choices". The way DF is set up, I can more easily have the client hone in on choices in terms of numbers and time.

DesignFiles is the next best thing!

Cons: I wish the board in which you can create your designs was a tad bigger. I wish they had like windows and doors components, and a way to build color stories easier. Other than that, I love it.

Overall: I love it coming from working with other companies, this makes makes it a blast to earn money and go out on your own and do what you went to school for. Thank you.

Overall: The software has allow us to cut the time consuming of preparing 3D and budgets. Increase productivity and free time to do more research. The presentations and interaction with clients in almost real time are excellent tools to keep track of changes.

Pros: I really like the functionality of it, having everything in one place and it's very user friendly. It's also a great platform for e-deign businesses and the best option for me as an e-designer.

Cons: The software itself it's really good but there's room for improvement. I think it would be better if there was an easier way to remove items/furniture from non-white backgrounds for the 2D and 3D boards - the current function works for some items, but not for all. The packages should also have an option to offer discounts or run promotions, and it would also be great if the platform offered ongoing webinars to engage the users and offer insights for the designer community. That being said, they have been doing a very good job with implementing changes and improving - looking forward seeing it grow!

Overall: I started with the free trial and it didn't take long to make me want to sign up! Great experience so far, love it!

Cons: It would be nice if there was an app so that I could access my designs on go. If there is a feature like this, let me know!

Overall: DesignFiles has allowed me to stay organized and also it has helped me to put design concepts together quickly so that I can show a client what I am envisioning.

Cons: For items that are white and have a white background i really struggle with removing the background. Also, if there are shadows, you can't always remove them.

Also, when a client makes a comment, it stays in that spot. If i move around the design the comment stays in the original spot.

Pros: I love how I can clear a background fairly easily without bringing into Photoshop. There's so many great features that make my life SO much easier. The shopping lists and ease of clipping an item off a website are two of my favorite things.

Cons: I love how I can clear a background but think it could be even more user-friendly with the options of zooming up on an item and being able to clear more than one segment of an item. A chair with a see-through hole in the middle, for example.

Overall: Love it! I'll never use anything else!

Cons: I wish I could copy and paste an image w/o having to save it to my computer first. Also, the background tool doesn't work particularly well unless the image is clearly defined against a white ground. And if the object itself is white, it doesn't work at all.

Overall: It's quick and easy and actually fun to use. My presentations always look great and the response to them is quite positive. I've had many requests from clients, architects, and teachers for the name of the app. Thanks for creating this great tool!

also add borders around paper, underline text, make titleblock with company logo

a way to lock in place the text and picture location and sizes

Overall: Been using the software for a few months and I really like it. Use is more for presentations, but will eventually let client access their files.

Pros: I like that I can create 3D- looking spaces for my clients. It really makes a big difference to be able to show someone an almost real-looking image of their room and furniture before they buy.

Cons: Saving products into the software is a big time-consuming. And I would love it if they could include an eraser tool in addition to the other background- removal tools. Sometimes there are just some white spots I want to get rid of, and it would be so much quicker to just erase them. I like the outline tool for some items, but for things like tables and tall skinny lamps it's tricky and cumbersome.

Overall: Overall I'm really happy with it. I'm not using all of the features yet. I appreciate that they keep improving and adding new features- especially the warp feature.

Pros: I like having EVERYTHING wrapped up together in one spot. Everything from a client's information, floorplans, mood board, and a way to communicate ... it's ALL at my fingertips, no need to jump around in and out of different programs. Is a huge time saver and organizer, for both me and my clients!

Cons: Sometimes the clipping tool can be a little tricky.

Overall: Fantastic!

I've found that there are limits to how the images can be displayed, and I'd love to be able to make things more 3 demential

I also love the skew feature that gives the design a more realistic 3d view

Cons: If I need to move design then I cannot select all objects in design and need to move one by one. I would love to be able to group items together as well.

Pros: How easy it is to interact with clients. Everything is all there. From the questionnaire, the invoicing, creating packages, being able to brand ourselves, the ease of creating the renderings and professional quality. Everything is there.

Even the customer service is quick to respond.

Cons: Since I'm just getting started I haven't had anything come up that I'm dissatisfied with.

Overall: I don't like things being over complicated so with designfiles I don't need to have a separate program for quizzes, something else for creating shopping lists, etc etc. this allows me to use the built in features such as invoices, selecting furniture from online sources, putting my branding on these invoices.

GREAT TOOL TO FURTHER ESTABLISH SOME RENDERING FOR PRESENTATION.

Cons: SOME GLITCHES BUT CUSTOMER SUPPORT IS AMAZING AT GETTING THEM RESOLVED AND FOLLOWING UP ASAP.

LOVE TO SEE MORE IF AN ELEVATION FROM A CAD DRAWING COULD BE MODIFIED..IN OTHER WORDS CREATE A REALISTIC IMAGE OF AN ELEVATION (SUCH AS CUSTOM BUILT IN OR BATHROOM) WHERE WE CAN APPLY DIFFERENT FINISHES TO THE DRAWING.

Overall: GOOD SALES TOOL TO HIGHLIGHT THE MATERIALS WITH THE PRICING AND STAY WITHIN BUDGET. ABILITY TO MANAGE DESIGN BOARDS AND CREATE TEARSHEETS FOR CLIENTS TO SEE IN AN EMAIL WITH ATTACHED DRAWINGS ETC. IT IS AN AFFORDABLE RENDERING FOR CLIENTS WHO DON'T WANT TO PAY FOR A MORE HIGH PRICED PROFESSIONAL RENDERING.

Pros: I love DesignFiles. The technology makes my sourcing of furniture & decor a breeze and my clients (when shopping the items) find it very easy to use too! And their customer service is truly some of the best I've ever seen. Whenever I have a question or suggestion, I hear back immediately. And they follow-through with most suggestions for software enhancements.

Cons: I would love to see a little more complex features such as more customization of the questionnaire, homepage, organization of the dashboard but for the basics, it definitely gets the job done.

Pros: I love that, as a designer, I am able to pull any piece from any website. The ease of the "Add to Design Files" bookmark is incredible and makes everything much more efficient.

Cons: I enjoy the distort feature, however if there is only a photo of a piece of furniture that is on an angle, there is really no way (read: too hard) to flatten it out to make it 2D. It would be perfect if there was a feature button that was the opposite of distort (if that makes any sense).

Overall: I love it! I have only completed one project so far, but love the ease of use and the professionalism of it.
