Overall Satisfaction with Canva

I'm using Canva on a weekly basis to easily create strong graphic images and promotional material. I'm a book author with a following on social media, which is where I primarily use this material. Canva makes it easy to create images such as Twitter of Facebook headers, or graphic images I can use on apps such as Instagram. It's often used as a way to get information out, instead of relying on text alone.

Pros

  • Helps to easily create graphic images
  • Is able to be used widely across different social media.
  • Allows you to incorporate stock or personalized images

Cons

  • Some of the image integration can be difficult, and can mess up color schemes
  • The search function is weak
  • I'd like to see it more cleanly separated in different social media forms. Making it searchable to find templates for each one
  • A large amount of time saved
Photoshop can be used to create highly personalized, high quality images. For Canva, users are a little bit more limited in what they're able to use. However, if they're looking to create quick and attractive marketing material, Canva is better suited for the job. With the pre-made templates, it makes work so much quicker.
Canva is a great program for people like me, who often have information they need to share via social media. Rather than spending many hours on programs such as photoshop, Canva provides ready-made templates that I'm able to personalize. This save so much time. If you're a great artist and want something completely personalized, it might not be the best program. But to save time and create material quickly, there's no beating it.
