Gebruiksgemak

Opmerkingen: Ik ben erg enthousiast over Canva. Canva daagt mij uit om creatiever te worden en out of the box te denken. Het programma werkt goed doordat je mappen kan aanmaken en ontwerpen nooit kwijt raakt doordat ze automatisch worden opgeslagen.

Pluspunten:

Via Canva kan je gemakkelijk achtergronden verwijderen van afbeeldingen, daarnaast kan je afbeeldingen makkelijk bijsnijden en filters toepassen. Dit zorgt er voor dat je snel kan werken. Ook de brede selectie van sjablonen, pictogrammen, stockfoto's etc. zijn van grote meerwaarden.

Minpunten:

De tekstgrote veranderd mee als je het tekstvak wild aanpassen, wat voor extra werk zorgt. Ik werk sinds kort met canvapro, maar als je dit niet hebt zijn wel erg veel pictogrammen en sjablonen niet beschikbaar/bruikbaar.

Review Canva

5,0 9 maanden geleden

Opmerkingen: Sinds ik ben overgestapt van microsoft powerpoint zijn mn presentaties een stuk strakker en professioneler geworden, waardoor uitleg op bepaalde vlakken gemakkelijker is geworden

Pluspunten:

Met canva kan je de visualisatie van je presentatie een stuk strakker en mooier krijgen in vergelijking met andere producten. Ook is het fijn dat er een erg groot arsenaal is aan kant en klare templates.

Minpunten:

Canva is minder gebruiksvriendelijk dan andere presentatie software, hierdoor is het lastiger te gebruiken voor nieuwe gebruikers, ook is er een bepaalde mate van creativiteit vereist.

Aanrader!

5,0 4 jaar geleden

Opmerkingen: Canva is makkelijk te gebruiken, overzichtelijk en kan elke pitch omtoveren tot een aantrekkelijke presentatie. Mijn presentaties worden ook automatisch opgeslagen. Het was fijn om te weten dat Canva mijn presentatie had opgeslagen nadat ik per ongeluk mijn browser wegklikte. Ik heb nu twee presentaties met succes gemaakt met behulp van de gratis proefversie van Canva. Ik ben hier erg te spreken over en ik verwacht een aankoop te doen indien ik dit programma vaker ga gebruiken. Ik raad iedereen aan Canva uit te proberen!

Pluspunten:

Zeer simpel te gebruiken Bewaart automatisch presentaties Overzichtelijk en makkelijk Presentatief aantrekkelijk Origineel

Minpunten:

Moeite met grootte verstellen van foto's Foto's kan ik niet kopiëren en plakken (deze moeten eerst geüpload worden).

Fijne tool

Opmerkingen: Over het algemeen ben ik erg tevreden met Canva en is het een makkelijke manier om bestanden op te leuken of te maken

Pluspunten:

Het is fijn dat er een gratis versie is. Daarin is ook al veel mogelijk en je kunt veel gebruiken met deze versie. Het werkt daarnaast heel gebruikersvriendelijk en alle functies spreken erg voor zich

Minpunten:

Je bent wat beperkter in het bewerken van foto's dan met andere bewerkingssoftware.

Invaluable tool for every business

5,0 vorige maand Nieuw

Opmerkingen: We rely on it for both our internal and external business requirements whenever we seek polished or playful visual content that can be created quickly and affordably, without the need to hire a professional.

Pluspunten:

To start, it's incredibly user-friendly. The tools are intuitive and require minimal exploration, unlike many offline applications. One of its standout features is the abundance of resources available—icons, images, and text templates of various sizes and fonts are just a few clicks away. This saves a significant amount of time, especially when deadlines are looming. We turn to it whenever we're pressed for time and need professional-looking designs quickly, whether for internal announcements or fun events. Plus, it's surprisingly affordable and versatile, suitable even for some business purposes. Need to whip up a T-shirt design in a hurry? It's got you covered, providing measurements with just a simple search.

Minpunten:

The simplicity and streamlined UI/UX of the platform do come with a trade-off: some fundamental tasks are unexpectedly slightly more complicated than they should be. For instance, drawing a simple line requires navigating to the shapes section, selecting a suitable line, and then modifying it to fit your needs. While still manageable, the absence of a dedicated "pencil" tool means adding a few basic drawing functionalities wouldn't go amiss.

Canva is great for fast and good graphic desings

5,0 2 maanden geleden Nieuw

Opmerkingen: Canva is great for anyone who needs fast graphic designs on a weekly basis. It's easy and fast to use, and you can start for free.

Pluspunten:

1.Easy to use and intuitive , even for graphic design beginners. 2.Has pre-sized templates for the main social media platforms and common size formats. (Replaced "size templates" with "pre-sized templates" for clarity) 4.Offers a huge library of graphic elements, even in the free version. 5.Includes great auto-tools like background removal, image outlining, and filters.

Minpunten:

There are some limitations for basic video editing. It's better for presentations, but I would prefer more options to edit videos on a traditional timeline, rather than a "PowerPoint" style method. Multiple users can use the same designs for logos ect.

Pluspunten:

Although Canva is a super simple app, you can create amazing designs; with or without one of their pre-built templates with ease. It offers SSO on Team plans and integrates well with Google Workspace and Microsoft 365.

Minpunten:

There are still some basic features missing, like drop shadows.

5,0 2 maanden geleden Nieuw

Opmerkingen: overall expeience with canva is good becuase i have made my college and some personal social media stuff through it.
It just need to improve in the above cons which i have mentioned.

Pluspunten:

Canva provides the great user interface, extensive templates and many more features which makes it easier for user to interact with the tools it provides easily.

Minpunten:

The fews discomfort on using canva which i feel terrible when i use it. The canva team must need to add more ai implementations in canva software like image generation, video generation and also text generation. sometimes the user may not want th eprovided templates on the software instead of that they want to create their own templates using ai and the further editing using canva tools. So that is the main thing i think canva team needs to focus on.

Canva made design work within healthcare context easy to manage.

5,0 4 weken geleden Nieuw

Opmerkingen: Canva is a fantastic platform that democratizes design, making it accessible to everyone. Its user-friendly interface facilitates a smooth design process, boosting productivity and creativity. It's an indispensable tool for creating marketing materials, and presentations.

Pluspunten:

Canva has an intuitive interface for users without graphic design expertise. Its vast template library is versatile, covering various applications, and allows for collaborative work, streamlining creative processes.

Minpunten:

Canva's advanced features will not feel limited to non-professional designers. Customisation options for templates are somewhat restricted, and the performance speed can be slower when handling complex designs.

Canva is so easy to use

5,0 2 maanden geleden Nieuw

Opmerkingen: I have used Canva for web design work to make landing pages panels and also to make flyers for my neighbors committee in the building where I live. Both times, it was so easy to work on Canva. I happened to use the paid version when I needed it but I appreciate the fact they let customers avoid watermarks and export for free.

Pluspunten:

- Free without watermarks depending on the elements the user decides to use. - Very easy to use and intuitive - Many templates and graphic elements available for free. - Exports available in multiple formats including video. - Affordable compared to other editors that are also complicated to use for beginners.

Minpunten:

- Video Editor can become sluggish as you add visual elements. - Hope there was a better integration with a vast selection of royalty-free content hubs like Pixabay, Unsplash, Pexels and Creatibe Commons or any others that are totally free. - Wish they added some serious AI integration that renders work similar to Leonardo AI or

Eye Catching and Userfriendly Design!

5,0 2 maanden geleden Nieuw

Opmerkingen: It is my go to for making simple flyers and presentations that need to catch someone's eye.

Pluspunten:

Canva makes it so easy to make eye-catching presentations that even a beginner can make look professional. There are endless customization options so you can alter all parts of images, text, and shapes within. I can whip out a beautiful slide faster on canva than anywhere else.

Minpunten:

I have had no issues at all! The paid plan gives me all I could want, but some things are lacking with the free version, but that is to be expected.

Great for small business & personal application!

5,0 4 jaar geleden

Opmerkingen: Great program to use! Can access anywhere and transfer designs easily to any platform for use or print. Premium version is definitely recommended and affordable for any company or individual looking for a program that offers a variety of use. Company seems to continually improve product and services with new options, images, and designs. Highly recommend!

Pluspunten:

Multiple features and functions. Can create a variety of print and digital media from Facebook posts to printed flyers and postcards. Large selection of details, photos, and fonts to use... in both Free & Premium versions. Easy to use with your own images and templates, easy to customize and use again. Transfers easily from online platform to computer to print shops. Great to use for personal fun, but also a great product for small businesses! Not a bad price either!

Minpunten:

There are some user interfaces and functions that could be improved upon. Hard to find ways to adjust small details while in the design; cannot adjust individual colors within stickers or fonts, hard to resize the design template unless selected previously, and difficult to manipulate sizes for photos and backgrounds. There are lots of options in the Free version, but for most items you will need the Premium version to get more. Do not be fooled... this is not a replacement for more advanced software programs such as Photoshop or InDesign, but works beyond limited/basic needs for print and digital media.

This is, hands down, the best graphics design tool for non-designers

5,0 4 jaar geleden

Opmerkingen: I mostly use Canva to create social media images. This might sound rather simple. But with Canva's preset sizes, I don't have to worry about resizing, cropping, dragging anymore. That easily saves me 10 minutes per image I create - Canva is saving me hours regularly.

Pluspunten:

I am not a designer. Last I draw or make something was 12 years ago. But with Canva, I can make a presentable graphics in 10-15 minutes. With my skill level (I used to use MS Word Clip Art tool and Paint), I should not be able to do anything at all. True I havent been able to draw a masterpiece, but Canva is not for that sort of work, at least not that I know of. But if you are looking for a social media post, image for your blog post, poster, cover image, Canva can handle all of those. Sure, you still need to hire a designer if you are going to do stunning artworks. But the day to day grind to produce several images everyday, either professional or personal needs, Canva is there for you. You can even create memes with it! Another nice surprise is, you dont need a paid plan to use Canva. Only the premium features and elements are paid. And to be honest, most users dont even need them. Even I haven't used the premium feature for myself. The free plan is more than enough, better than any other free tool in the market and a few premiums too.

Minpunten:

There is absolutely nothing I want to change. This is simple, intuitive, free or very, very cheap. What more can I ask for?? There is some grumblings among pro-designers who use Canva about some high-level features being absent, certain export formats not there or background remoal option not available. But this is not Photoshop and we should not treat it like that. Also, last I heard, Canva is working very hard to add more functions to their toolbox.

Ideal for sharp-looking visuals, no graphic design experience necessary!

5,0 4 jaar geleden

Opmerkingen: It began saving me 2-5 hours weekly when creating social media graphics, and I since expanded to using it for everything from party invites to professional looking PowerPoint decks. The options are endless and with so many pre-drafted templates, it's worth investing in the professional account in order to take advantage of this platform's full capabilities.

Pluspunten:

The free option is outstanding, but the affordable paid option even better. I use this software daily. Templates allow for easy customisation of font, colors and photos. You can even upload your band kit fonts, color codes etc. The new "remove background" feature has eliminated my need to use photoshop for most projects. The newest feature allowing graphics of one size to be resized is a game changer for social media managers. The photo library is large and easy to search. And the platform saves all of your designs for ease of retrieval, and easy duplication means that you can create one template and reuse it for multiple projects. You can even add stickers and create moving gifs now! Oh, and you can even order affordable printed copies of your designs - from holiday cards to posters, I no longer have to export and send to a vendor... Canva made it easy.

Minpunten:

I cant say there is anything I don't like about the desktop version. I look forward to the continued improvements and additions. The mobile version, however, is a little less sophisticated and difficult to manage, just due to the small screen size and need of precision when dragging and dropping items with your finger.

Canva is the reason for my marketing career!

5,0 4 jaar geleden

Opmerkingen: As a Marketing major, you would think I would choose some sort of "fancy" software that cost a lot of money to create marketing material for our company but I have stuck with Canva since my first class project in 2013 to now. Canva is my go to software when I need to get something done quickly but it needs to look clean, crisp and professional. I could go on and on about Canva but to put it simply, if you need to create GREAT marketing material or even if you just want to make something that looks nice just because, this is what you should use!

Pluspunten:

Canva is such an easy product to use and anyone can do it. I'm talking ages 6 years old to 99 years old can figure out how to create something awesome and super professional. I love the layout of Canva and how quickly you can find what you are looking for in the search function. If you are looking for a specific shape graphic to add onto your design, all you have to do is type it in. I also love all of the templates that are offered and that can help spark your creative thinking, especially if you're stuck and can't come up with an idea!

Minpunten:

There's nothing bad I can say about Canva at all. They even have a mobile app which I use constantly for our social media page!

Go Pro With Canva

5,0 3 jaar geleden

Opmerkingen: My overall experience with Canva has been excellent. I can create social marketing campaigns, post to social media, and with the features they offer through Canva Pro, I can integrate my team and get everyone on the same page.

Pluspunten:

The best part of Canva is all the available features they have for both free and paid plans. They are easy to use and you don't have to be a graphic design artist to create something amazing! The impact they've had on my business has been huge.

Minpunten:

I feel like they could be better organization within the software itself. For example, better ways to organize uploaded pictures/videos etc. I also feel like the customer service could be a little more friendly and timely.

Shape Your Imagination with Easy Functionality

5,0 3 jaar geleden

Opmerkingen: My overall experience with Canva is too good. It is an one stop solution for me. Whether I need to make content for social media platforms or my blogs, I always use Canva. Because of its simplicity, I would never think about any alternative options of Canva.

Pluspunten:

Simply put, Canva has changed my life, and career. Being a blogger, I need to design a lot for my content. Specially, when it comes to creating infographic, Canva is unbeatable. You can choose from tons of professional templates and easily shape your imagination. Whether you need to design a photo for facebook, twitter or blogpost, Canva has everything tp support you. Honestly, it made my life easier. I can easily access tons of resources from stock photos to mind-blowing icons, Canva has everything right in the place so that I don't need to struggle a bit. The download options are also pretty much handy. In a nutshell, if you don't have enough design skill, still you can do some great professional looking design when you have canva in your side.

Minpunten:

I think there are still rooms for development. Canva should think about bringing more stock photos, videos, etc. They should also develop a well-organized internal filling system. Updating the tools to make our life easier would be a plus point as well. Besides, the photo retouching capabilities of Canva should also be improved. The photo adjustments control of Canva is not up to the mark yet. If they improve these few things, Canva will be truly invincible in the design tool industry.

If You're Thinking About Using Canva - Just Do It! It's Amazing!

5,0 3 jaar geleden

Opmerkingen: Im sure I could go on and on about Canva, heck, I even listed some more positive notes about Canva in the Cons section. But ultimately for me it comes down to the fact that I don't have to sacrifice any quality in my work or flexibility in my deliverables and exports when using Canva. Yet I gain so much time using it and when it comes to professional graphic design thats everything. One project in particular I recently worked on was a series of short videos for ads for a client and the turnaround on those ads was crazy. If I had to make those videos in any other video editing software it would have taken 5 times as long and I probably wouldn't have met the deadlines. However because Canva has made everything so easy to use I was able to crank out videos so quickly and make edits so quickly without compromising quality. And that was HUGE.

Pluspunten:

I honestly have so many "pros" about Canva that I truly don't know where to start. I have been doing graphic design for 15 years now for all types of businesses and all sorts of projects from print to advertising and I typically use the Adobe software options but for the past 2 years Canva has covered just about 98% percent of what I've needed to do. Here are a few highlights that I love, - The templates for sizing on different platforms such as Facebook headers has become indispensable for me - The huge library of stock material that is SO quick and easy to access - They are now including video options - The content/templates/etc. is all very high quality and up to date - They have awesome "moving photos" for social posts. - The way you can resize a design for multiple export options is amazing. I often find myself wanting that in Adobe products. I could keep going. The resizing feature alone was enough for me to use the pro version but everything about Canva is top notch and I always find new things they have added to the platform that make life for a designer so much easier. It is a go-to platform for me and my team.

Minpunten:

I really don't have much negative to say about Canva. The only thing I can really say negatively about it is the file organization. I wish that was better, however, I may be doing it wrong and there may be a better way. Other than that I honestly have no criticisms about Canva. I mentioned in the "pro's" section that it covers 98% of my designing needs and that last 2% I honestly never expect a product such as Canva to cover because that last 2% for me is the more extreme in depth edits that Photoshop or Illustrator provide and honestly I am 100% okay with that. It does mean I need both platforms to fully do my job but its worth it because Canva has saved me so much time.

Incredibly useful tool for everything related to quick graphical output for social media

5,0 3 jaar geleden

Opmerkingen: Canva feels like you took all the most used tools from Illustrator or CorelDraw, cut them down to basics, make them easy to use, combine it with some simple video editing features and add tons of templates and all the exporting options you could need. I create mainly content for social media and simple print flyers for our company and it does the job absolutely great. Of course you have to keep in mind that for more complex projects you should use more complex software, but for anything quick and simple this tool is ideal. When you use or get inspired by templates, it can make your graphical stuff look professional without much effort.

Pluspunten:

It is incredibly easy to use when you need to do something quick and you don't want to use more complex tools like CorelDraw/Adobe products. It has tons of templates which you can use directly or can be used for inspiration for your own stuff. What I like the most that you have already recommended sizes of different posts for social and print media, which are predefined. You can quickly switch between different sizes and adjustments are super easy. I also like that I can work with video and decently animate pictures. All the tools which you would probably need for simple and medium complex projects not only for social media. Also, the smartphone app is really useful, for some minor operations when you are on the go.

Minpunten:

As far as I know, there is nothing I could complain about. It has everything I need for quick creation. It is not usual that you can find a tool which really does everything you would expect.

Reviewing Canva

5,0 2 jaar geleden

Opmerkingen: Canva will handle the job, and because it is hosted in the cloud, you can access it from any location using any device. Additionally, Canva's connectivity with mobile phones is really excellent. I still use Canva for quick graphics. When it comes to my business ideas and presentations, Canva is the rescuer that I have been looking for.

Pluspunten:

Even a total newbie may use the included instructions and extensive library of pre-made templates to create high-quality visuals. Canva is a great tool for mass producing graphical content, such as blog entries, posters, and social media postings. It's a lot of fun to use, and if you're just starting out, you'll be amazed at what you can do. It's easy to create and modify projects for many sorts of uses, including personal, professional, and more.  Additionally, the platform's features and functions are extensive, ranging from the ability to modify photographs and brand material for social media to the use of templates for creating progress reports and yearly reports, both of which have proven to be quite useful and time saving. Furthermore, this platform needs zero specialised expertise or training to use.

Minpunten:

I don't like how restricted the video editing options are. Currently, there aren't too many alternatives. To that end, I look forward to future instalments. Canva's video editing tools are too basic for me to use them at this time. It's concerning that many people just copy and paste the templates, making it simple to identify Canva users online. Canva might improve matters by spreading the word about its Design School, found under the site's Learn section. Many people don't even realise it exists. Canva's free plan lacks a filter that separates freemiums from premiums, despite the fact that it offers a large number of features and the ability to upload files for use in design creation. At the moment, their in-app search function simply allows you to narrow down templates by colour and language. If you don't use a template, you'll have to use keywords to find what you need. In my opinion, it would be beneficial to include this functionality. Also free membership let you dowenload the contents with low resolution.

I literally use Canva for "EVERYTHING" - One of the best designing tools I know!

5,0 5 jaar geleden

Opmerkingen: Canva is a beautiful tool that has revolutionized the game for small or budding business to go out there with professional content. I've used Canva for possibly anything that you could think of (Resumes, Facebook Creatives, my Company Logo, etc). The best part is, the Freemium is as good at some of the other Premiums out there. However, if you're using Canva for business purposes, I suggest you use their paid pricing model. It's a little steep, but it's worth it.

Pluspunten:

1) Easy To Use: Trust me, it's not as scary as some of the other "photoshop" softwares that scare people off. Canva is incredibly simple to use and very easy to master. You can be a beginner or a professional, but I've you're lucky enough to stumble upon this tool, you're sorted. 2) Dimension Guru: If you do a lot of Social Media Campaigns, Social Media Account Maintenance, etc, you're going to need to know all the dimensions. Luckily, Canva allows you to choose templates that have preset dimensions (For example, a Facebook cover page will have a different dimension than a Facebook profile Picture). 3) Versatility: Canva can be used for virtually any purpose from creating Resumes to crafting Company Logos from scratch and many many more! They even have ready-made templates that you can load and just alter existing information. 4) Great Memory: Canva saves the color scheme that your brand holds and applies it to your future projects. This is so that you don't accidentally use a slightly lighter or darker shade. (Used to happen to me a lot) 5) Professional Creations: Till now, everything that I've created using Canva came out looking very professional. 6) Who Needs A Design Team: With Canva in you're arsenal, you don't need to invest an exorbitant amount on a Design Team. However, you do have to invest a lot of time if you take that call. That's a different story.

Minpunten:

1) Graphs and Charts: Usually, on chosen templates that have a graph or a chart in them, you can't edit or input your own data or values to change their visual representation. To overcome this, I usually use an external graph or chart maker and import a PNG version of the same into my Canva project. Just a minor setback because the external tools that I use are free. 2) Buggy Undo Button: There were many instances where I had clicked the 'Undo' button and it started lagging.

Canva Just Might Be the Death to Photoshop, InDesign, and QuarkXPress

Opmerkingen: I'm pretty sure that Milton Glaser, most famous for creating the I ❤ NY logo, would hate the fact that Canva lets anyone be a designer—and a great one at that. With the incredible templates, variety in fonts (plus the ability to upload your own), recommendations, and tools, Canva has made my life so much easier. I'm able to create social media designs so much more quickly as well as one-off graphics. Sure, for brochures and business cards, I still use QuarkXPress because of the ability to fine-tune typography. But for everything else, Canva is my go-to tool. I use it every day, and I can't imagine my working life without it.

Pluspunten:

I love almost everything about Canva. First, it is incredibly easy to use. Although I have a background that includes design, I was able to teach my sister to use it within about 5 minutes. The tool is incredibly user-friendly and very intuitive, so it's almost like you're guided through the design process. Second, I love that I can have a different folder for every client, and then designs within that folder. For example, Client A has a folder, and within that is a file for Instagram posts, for in-store flyers, and for hand-out postcards. Client B has a folder, and within it is a file for video thumbnails, Instagram posts, and website featured images. It helps to keep me organized, and each one has its own branding. Third, with the ability to resize for different outlets, it's easy for me to create every post I need in every size I need, with some small adjustments. Amazing. Fourth, Canva has great templates for all kinds of designs. The templates are completely adjustable to your branding; in fact, sometimes, I just use them for inspiration. Finally, Canva has a plethora of free (and paid) images and icons that make designs pop or just add that little something extra that you need. Overall, Canva has saved me so much time over the past three years that I've been using it. What would have taken me an hour in QuarkXPress now takes me about 15 minutes in Canva, because it's all right there, and it's so easy to use.

Minpunten:

I have only a few complaints with Canva. The first is probably on their product roadmap—I wish that I could merge files. At this point, I can move any design into a folder. But I can't move a design in File A to File B, even if they're the same size. Here's why I find this is problematic: Let's say I have a file of Instagram designs (1080x1080) for Client A, and I want to convert just the first of the designs into a video thumbnail (1920x1080). And I already have a file of video thumbnails for Client A. So, I either need to recreate the Instagram image into my file of video thumbnails, which is silly and duplicates work. Or I need to copy and resize the whole Instagram designs file, delete everything but the first page, and then make the small adjustments to get it the right size. Ideally, I would be able to then take this newly designed image and merge it into my Video Thumbnails file. But I can't do that. So now I have a handful of random files, which becomes slightly cumbersome. Nit picky, yes, but it would be so helpful to do and a real time-saver. Second, and this is probably on the roadmap too, I would love to be able to copy an element/text/style from one design and paste it into another that is in a different file. Finally, also probably on the roadmap, is to be able to bulk delete pages in a file. I can bulk download them but not bulk delete. Would be another big time-saver.
