As a small business owner, the pro version of Canva is worth every penny. This program makes my work easier on a daily basis.

Pros

The expansive variety of available templates, images, fonts, etc is worth every penny. I also love how easy it is to use. I get compliments all the time on things I've designed...and I am NO graphic designer. But that's just how easy-to-use this program truly is.

Cons

I really don't have any cons. Any limitations I've faced have simply been because I haven't had time to research and figure out how to do something...not because Canva doesn't offer it.

Reasons for Switching to Canva

There would have been a much steeper learning curve with the other products. With Canva, you can be productive right away and simply learn as you go.

I use it every day and it might be the most fun part of my days.

Pros

This is a key tool for my creative team. Social media, flyers, presentations, investor pitches, sales pitches... anything and everything goes through Canva. It is SO easy to use that you need no onboarding. We constantly get congratulated on our designs, and they are most times just templates adapted to our branding. SO many options to choose from, it's great for when you're on a creative rut.

Cons

Nothing, I absolutely love Canva and cannot recommend it enough.

The ability to quickly design projects with their step-by-step design process, for example, you can search for YouTube Thumbnails, and Canva would provide you with presets generated or a blank sheet.

Pros

The simplicity of creating and designing projects for any occassion, whether it's personal, corporate and more.

Cons

When using the free version, you don't have access to all of the elements provided by the software or the elements are covered by a Canva watermark.

It has greatly benefited us in that it has renewed our reputation in terms of the contribution to brand advertising. It aids in fostering clients' individuality and ingenuity. It has distinguished itself as a very beneficial product for meeting the demands of visual projects. I was able to use it with outstanding quality and effectiveness. It has aided in our comprehension of the value of having a strong image in terms of logos and exceptional designs.

Pros

Canva is an application that I really enjoy using because it allows for the quick and easy development of designs. It has exceptional support for building positive relationships with problem solvers. Making any kind of logo is quite fun; all you have to do is pick a design and then alter the text color, some vectors, and the fonts to fit your preferences. Having a sizable picture library allows you to choose any of them quickly and without leaving the page.

Cons

The Canva UI needs to be a little more responsive because while I'm loading some templates, everything freezes for a while.

Reasons for Switching to Canva

I chose Canva because of all the features it incorporates and the advantages it provides to the company by assisting us in creating fantastic visual material that can be used in a variety of contexts. It has everything necessary to satisfy graphic design requirements and a little bit more. This material works well on PCs and mobile devices and doesn't require you to be an expert in design to use it.

Canva's beauty lies in its simplicity and seamlessness. If you're looking for a platform to design and edit your content, Canva is the right place for you.

Pros

Canva has an unlimited number of features, templates, and designs. You can use these features to create your own content, and it's easy to edit and tweak the template to fit your actual design.

Cons

Canva needs to work on its interface to include more video editing and presentation features. Canva can be a place to design photos and logos but also a place for video editing. I sometimes create photos, but the video editing interface lacks essential features. I want to be able to design photos and turn them into videos right inside Canva. They need to think about the motto: "All in one place."
