Canva Pro Online Graphic Design Tool is a graphic design platform, used to create social media graphics, presentations, posters, documents and other visual content. The app already includes templates for users to use. The platform is free to use but offers paid subscriptions like Canva Pro and Canva for Enterprise for additional functionality.
Setting up Canva is simple, sign up with your social account or email address. Then you tell Canva what you are creating and it will give you suggestions and graphics to help you. Canva helps you along the way making it very easy to use.
The Pro account gives you access to thousands of graphics and pictures and is highly recommended to go for. You can also add team members to the account, and custom fonts which is a must for my needs.
Canva Pro Online Graphic Design Tool Review
I tested out making some infographics, and gifs for social media. The way Canva holds your hand through the process is great, but it does it without making you feel couped up. When printing out brochures to PDF, it will add things like bleed and trim automatically which I do forget to add from time to time.
Sharing to social media is easy after adding the accounts. You can also email them to people, print, share as a PDF or invite people to collab on the work in progress.
Though this will never replace professional products like Photoshop, Canva is purely web-based. This means that it doesn’t have any kind of negative effect on performance.
A nice little addition is that Canva offers courses in blog, design, social branding etc. This is a great addition and incredibly useful to people starting out.
For anyone looking to simplify tasks like social media graphics and visual cues then Canva is a great choice. Though I used this for a more professional reason, Canva is geared up for social media and would help add some flair to your pages.
