Overall Satisfaction with Canva

I use Canva for work (the paid version) every single day and I create social media posts for clients all around the world. I also partnered with Digital Marketing Agencies and I provide social media posts, banners, flyers and much more. Since I work as a graphic designer, Canva helps me to save a lot of time because of all the tools available (paid version). I can also find a lot of high-quality pictures, icons, etc. for free instead of having to use websites like Pixabay, Pexels, FlatIcon, etc.
  • They have a great stock of images and icons available
  • Templates are also a huge plus so depending on the design I don't need to create everything from scratch
  • The paid version is not expensive in my opinion based on how much time you can save just by using this tool
  • It's easy to use even for someone who is just starting
  • I would like to be able to add shadow behind text or icons
  • Easier way to center icons, texts, images, etc
  • Find a better way to find folders / templates I created in the past just by typing certain keywords
  • I work full time as graphic designer and web-developer. Canva is by far the best tool for certain jobs like Social Media Content, Facebook Covers, etc.
  • It saves me a lot of time when I need to find images and icons. It also allows me to keep images I upload inside folders which is a huge plus.
  • The templates available are awesome, it gives me tons of ideas & inspirations when I need to create something new for a client.
Canva can really save you a lot of time compared to Adobe Photoshop if used well. You can save images, find new images and icons all inside the platform. You can also use pre-made templates and you will never have storage space problems which I absolutely love! When I use Adobe Photoshop I always have to find something else that I can delete in order to create a new design which can be very frustrating.
Canva is ideal for anyone looking to create great designs (Social Media posts, brochures, flyers, and even a basic logo). Canva wouldn't be the best option if you are looking to design something complex, remove background, crop items, add effects on images or texts, etc.
