Canva

Canva is ideal for both big and small businesses as graphic designers' time is usually limited. Any person working in marketing or an SMB owner who wants to quickly create aesthetically appealing images for ads, social media or otherwise can do it quickly.If you want some nitty-gritty changes to the image or if you have tight specs you would need to use other tools like Photoshop.

Pixlr

Pixlr is well suited if you need to design graphics quickly, and using foreign languages. The fact that even if you use a non-Roman script (in our case, Khmer) but can still design things beautifully, is a huge value add for our team. It is less well suited for absolute beginners to graphic design, who can find the myriad tools and functions overwhelming or confusing

Pros

Canva

  • Provides readily accessible approved fonts and colors for our university publications.
  • A great selection of templates to select from.
  • Lots of resources for design, like photos, clip art, backgrounds, and other design elements.
  • The ability to share your design with others at the university.
  • The ability to download your design as a png, pdf, jpg, svg, even MP4 video or gif.
  • Easy to edit and alter the design and not lose what you had by creating clones of previous designs and then make the changes.

Pixlr

  • I love Pixlr because it has a wide variety of tools to achieve high quality in editing images and photographs, most simply, saving them in different formats or sharing them directly to social networks.
  • For me, it is the best basic online image editor, with a very easy-to-understand and use interface. Something significant is that you don't need to register because it is free to use.
  • Its use is simple; you have to access their page and start testing the full range of tools offered.

Cons

Canva

  • Some pretty basic fonts are missing from the database, which proves to be annoying when trying to stay on brand
  • Pre-grouping sections of templates can be a hassle to figure out
  • Creating your own template from scratch can have it's hiccups, but that could be my lack of design experience.

  • The previous version of Pixlr, albeit more basic, was a lot easier to use
  • Would be good to have pop up labels explaining what different tools are for
  • More videos and resources showing how to do the basics would be helpful

The ease of use makes Canva a powerful tool for manipulating images, creating original content, and testing ideas without requiring the involvement of graphic design or more time-intensive image editing software such as Photoshop. While it doesn't have the full functionality of a mature software, such as Photoshop, The speed and simplicity of Canva makes it a necessity in a business of any size

It is super easy to use, but it could be limiting if you're on a small device. It is easier on a bigger device because you can resize graphics and text easier than with your fingers on a small device. I do think it's perfect and easy for non-designers who don't have any training. As long as you have a good eye for visuals, Canva is a wonderful substitute for graphics programs on-the-go.

I have yet to encounter Canva being offline in at least 6 years of using it regularly. They also announce well in advance if there may be upgrades to the code and the hours during which there may be issues accessing the service.

I haven't ever had issues with a slow-loading site and there haven't been any lag issues within the software. There have been maybe a handful of times over the past six years where I have tried to upload a large image and it will slow down as it loads the last megabyte, but I have yet to have the system time out or require any interference by me

Overall, Canva is easy to use, easy to train others to use, allows for creativity with a professional look without enormous associated costs. The mobile apps works almost as easily, but at a minimum allows for easy review and downloading in a pinch. Really, anyone can learn to use Canva quickly and will immediately benefit from the results.

Remember to download the mobile app onto your phone for easy image manipulation on the go. Adding company colors, logos, and typefaces to your company account is an easy process. When images are uploaded, these can also be shared between accounts within a company, as can canvases you've created for easy editing among teams.

Alternatives Considered

Canva

Despite that fact that PowerPoint wasn't completely replaced by Canva, it's now used as a base for sketches and drafts. Presentations are much easier to prepare in Canva, taking advantage of their templates. PowerPoint required more time and edition just to create a standard looking slide... while Canva gives non-creatives the chance to create faster with a greater visual impact.

The support excellent, plus the price compared to others is low.

Very easy to add accounts and share content between them. Collaboration is also easy to manage and can be done on a project-by-project basis. The cloud-based software means it is incredibly fast to add a coworker and have them editing images within minutes. A live internet connection is required to access Canva so this is something to consider if expecting to use the software while on journeys without access to wifi etc

Return on Investment

Canva

  • As far as ROI is concerned, Canva has proven itself time and time again as having a positive impact for business.
  • Just yesterday, I had to prepare an hour-long presentation on the fly; the great reviews of the presentation and the materials (all made in Canva) only served to advertise for Canva and it proves that Canva is a smart investment.
  • I don't think in the time that I have been a Canva pro user that I can say that my ROI has been negatively impacted. Highest recommendation. The software more the casually pays for itself time and time again.
