Due to its pro features, it is even used by professional photo editors for varies purposes. Canva let you design the best graphics and edit photos for your YouTube channel.
Use canva to make a decent logo. That made me leave.
Canva I leaned about this site my last semester in college. It allows you to create beautiful presentations. You can pay to download the files or you can save the images as a PDF, jpg or png files. Then upload the images into google slides or PowerPoint for free!
I ended up using Canva as the first comment suggested and it worked great! Nice simple font for our logo and was able to make it 1400×1400 by selecting “cd cover” as the template. Highly suggest it
Canva is wonderful
My previous employer chose to use Canva as the company design tool of choice, when it was still free. If you wanted to produce signs or letterhead or anything else with the employer’s logo on it, you were supposed to use Canva. After it switched to paid, the Design Director refused to move off of it. My boss wanted signs, but refused to pay for subscriptions. We improvised with Word and PowerPoint instead. To this day, I’m not sure if I’m more bitter at Canva for switching its business model or my old boss for being too cheap to pay for the subscription.
For me, I recommend Canva. Great web app and a game changer overall. I took a Udemy course to exercise its full potential
Glad to hear from another fan! I agree about the totem, it feels like a “me too” kind of thing with not a lot of value in practice. I bought a Nintendo Switch JoyCon that syncs over Bluetooth and programmed in a bunch of Photoshop shortcuts to the keys in Antimicro (free software) and it works amazingly as a companion to the Canvas. My wife loves it, and can use it off-screen just by feel without having to look at the buttons!
One other Canvas fact that isn’t anywhere on the internet…did you know it has a Bluetooth radio in it? If you open the On Screen menu using the button at the top right, you can turn on the Bluetooth radio. From there, it shows up in Windows without a driver, but works without issue. We are using the JoyCon with the Canvas’ secret Bluetooth and it works great!
First, the pen and touch features won’t work with my rig. The Canvas works, but there’s some issue between it and my rig. Dell feels the Canvas is fine so won’t help.
My Canvas Layout interface doesn’t appear when selecting and moving windows. I purposely bought this device because of the “innovated interface” over the Cintiq.
Photoshop works amazingly, as does Clip Studio Paint. The only caveat is the Totems seem unsupported by everything as of now. But for core drawing functionality, pound for pound vs. Cintiqs that are available on the market right now, the Canvas wins and I don’t see it as being close for one reason: parallax. The Cintiq 13/16 has great parallax, but the larger (24/27) ones have far too much compared to more modern devices. The Canvas has extremely low parallax and is comparable to the Cintiq 13/16, but much larger and much cheaper than the Cintiq’s larger options.
I honestly would buy it (and did) over the new Cintiq Pros, because the price points are going to be far beyond what the Canvas costs, and they use the same technology. The Cintiq 16 Pro is $1,500, and the Canvas 27 is $1,800, and in my opinion is very worth the extra $300 to get a way bigger device. The new Cintiq 24 will come in at $2000 in January (hopefully), making the Canvas still a more cost effective, larger (and available) version. One other point in favor of the Canvas is that it has a 3 year warranty, where the Cintiq has a 2 year. The decision is yours, but we decided not to wait and I think we made the right call.
I looked at Canva. The templates look really good but I’m not at all creative or have an eye for the right image/content…. I was hoping to hire somebody who would design the brochure (hopefully with content) for me.
I highly recommend Canva (Free) if you’re looking for a way to create some professional looking brochures without any graphic design knowledge.
Photoshop was my old weapon of choice but I use Canva these days at the distie I work for because it’s just so much faster.
I recommend canva..com and try to design a few simple text based shirts. It’s $12 a month and so worth it. Keep in mind though the images are not free. You can look for free images online and upload it there. Fiverr tends to recycle their designs unless you come out with really unusual niche. Watch YouTube videos and learn. Don’t spend too much time reading blogs. Learn as you go.
I just started as well (*first design went live July 4th) and have been using Canva for everything, just the free functions on the site. I am familiar with the site from using it for social media posts but it is a pretty easy learning curve. There are youtube videos on how to use Canva for Merch – check them out.
My goal is to use canva for designs until I get leveled up to 100. I am focusing on volume for now with the hopes leveled up quicker, then invest in designs that are out of my abilities when I have a series of ideas to use and more slots to sell them! So far 9 sales in the last week *and I got leveled to 25.
I have this layout for my current resume! Got it from canva.com
Yes, but pay the extended license which costs about $10
Works perfectly on my Pixelbook. I use Canva often, it’s a great web app.
I make thumbnails on Canva; it’s free and l like how it turns out.
Canva is always my one stop shop plus there’s a lot more there than just YouTube thumbnails, handy if you need a logo or facebook profile / cover images, I also use it for pinterest thumbnails, jump on YouTube and find some or the tutorials. At the end of the day its another tool in your toolbox.
It’s shocking how good Canva is for thumbnails. It’s SO easy to use and for being a free program, there’s no better alternative.
Try Canva for a free and easy to use solution. Not as powerful as a full graphics editor but templates and standardized layout objects make it really fast to throw something together.
I’ve found Canva just cumbersome and irritating to work with.
There are many tools available on the marketing but if you are going for the online option then canva is the best from my point of view & great user experience with it and if you are going for an offline then photoshop or CorelDRAW you can use it whatever you want.
Canva is the best for drag and drop (and it’s free). There’s also Venngage.
This is the correct answer. Custom icons, good typography, and it won’t look like anything else. I’ve seen so many of the canva templates on the web now that even in dire times I’d rather do it myself.
Same. I’ve created several simple infographics with Canva as well. I use InDesign for anything more in-depth.
When I’m not feeling super creative at the start of the project, I’ll sometimes use Canva to start and then photoshop to kick it up a notch. It can be effective.
If you’re only looking to do a few infographics and you want drag-and-drop, then I can’t recommend Canva enough. It has done the job for the 4-5 infographics I’ve made. Plus, it’s free.
I’m not much of a graphic designer at all, but I’ve found Canva to be pretty useful when making album covers and last minute designs for work (I’m a social media manager).
I’ll have to check it out. I just started using canva this month and really like it. What’s the general consensus about sites like these around here? I realize they’re limiting in certain ways but the templates are great, lot of options and it’s fast.
My fiance and I wanted to design our own Save the Dates and try to cut costs out as much as possible, and we used Canva – a free graphic design platform with printing services. I wanted to share my experience because it was so easy to use and saved us SO much money compared to using Minted, Shutterfly (even with coupon codes) and other places that have been recommended to us.
I’m not design savvy, but Canva has a bunch of objects, templates, texts, and other elements built into the platform. I looked around at a bunch of designs I liked on Minted & Shutterfly and took little pieces of each one I liked to create our own design. I’d say it took about an hour to do.
Canva then gives you the option to print (you can also save and load into Vistaprint , Costco, etc.). We had a large photo on one side and a smaller photo on the back with details for the wedding and our cost for the premium, matte, postcard print was $0.31 each with free shipping. The only con was you have to order in quantities of 50, so we had about 30 extra that I have no idea what to do with.
I ordered kraft paper A2 envelopes off of Amazon for $14 – here.
I also ordered clear mailing labels and used Avery’s online label design tool (also free!) to make all of our return and address labels – here – for $10.
So for 70 save the dates, I think we ended up at a cost of about $0.55 each since we’ll use the leftover labels and envelopes for other wedding related items.
Aside from the minimum order quantity, the only downside to Canva was when you go to print through them they have a proofing process that was a bit confusing at first. You get to check the bleed area and other design elements, and then it shows you what the final product will look like. For my design, it took about 20 minutes to tweak it to make it work.
I got a BFA in graphic design and have used Adobe programs for years, but I often prefer working in Canva for various projects. It’s such a great tool, and so easy to learn! They actually have a whole “guide” series on how to brand/design your wedding that is seriously worth checking out!
Yes! This is exactly what we did. I’ve also used Canva to make our seating cards and signs (instructions for photo booth and hashtag). Its definitely saved a lot of money
Long term solution would be Photoshop. Short term solution would be Canva.
Canva is excellent, but you don’t have freedom in creating your own ads as you have in Photoshop. With Photoshop only limit that you have is your imagination.
Whenever I use Canva, there seems to be loads of micro-transactions involved in making something great. I’d rather use PS or Fireworks as I have more long term control over the work produced. But I know acquiring those packages can be costly.
Canvas is great for speed though.
Canva for life. Honestly what an amazing service. I allways get reactions of my classmates, who think I’m some kind of superfast designer guy. I am not.
Canva has been amazing for us to create quick social media content. I know I can do things cheaper by not using their $1 icons, but tbh they provide so much value to me I have no qualms about paying $3 for a few icons
I prefer Canva because it has many templates, like facebook, instagram and many others social sites. Canva includes free tools like:
– Two folders to organize designs
– 1GB storage for photos and assets
– Access to over 8,000 templates
– Upload your own images
Canva already has some presets and templates so it makes it easier to create designs
Canva has been my go to. Super easy to learn and has a lot of great features.
Adobe Spark looks fancy but it doesn’t deliver the same way Canva does.
Canva seems to have a similar set of brand limitations but otherwise seems to be a simpler interface with more power under the hood.
I’ve not used adobe spark but have the paid version of canva and love it. While I haven’t used spark I have the adobe creative cloud and highly recommend it. Especially if you enjoy art and want to learn/create more content and not have limits imposed on you. I think canva and spark are both great beginning points. The true nut move that makes you more valuable is the knowledge of creating content from scratch without the guidelines/templates that canva or spark give you.
I legit can’t believe Canva is free
I’ve been really loving Canva

Among million other things we played with an idea of text-based games and the last piece that was missing was the story itself. So via in-house outreach platform we found two established writers that believed in the project and agreed to participate.
Shout out to Richard Abbott who wrote Fraud on Thetis and Eva Pohler who sent us a huge draft we are still reading through.
At some point we realised that list building, fetching contact details & outreach tech work just as well for b2b lead generation
v0.3 Once, we fell in love with ecommerce, because of short feedback cycles on marketing & development efforts.
Today we ship into production inhouse SaaS project - AVOKADO - the web app for learning languages with flash cards.
The year after we built it we realised how long is the road map ahead & what resources we'd need to promote it and decided to put it on hold.
One day as we ship GRIN tech v3.0 into production we'll distrupt the language learning market with Avokado.
We love Wordpress and recently shipped two plugins into open beta for commercial sale.
v0.2.1 King The Monk - wordpress plugin to virally grow your email list
