I have not used anything like Canva. I don't know of anything that has the kinds of features Canva has. TrustRadius is asking me for more words but I don't have anything else to say since I don't have anything to compare it to.

Canva is great if you need to create graphics/posters/social media posts and you have no graphic design skills. Their templates are really easy to use and have a great professional look and it's easy to plug in your own graphics. I'm always astounded at the professional look I can get with their help, mostly at no cost. Some of their graphics cost $1-2 to use, and some of their features like organizing your uploaded photos, or resizing your design, are paid features. But for the most part, you can do much of what you need for free.

I find scrolling through their templates to be inspirational and I get great ideas for my marketing. Although I do find there are a ton of duplicate templates that are almost exactly the same and sometimes none are exactly what I need (for instance, if I have a specific social media post idea in mind). I wish there were a way to "favorite" templates to come back to and use later.
