Canva is gewoon super!

5,0 4 weken geleden Nieuw

Pluspunten:

Canva is een gebruiksvriendelijke onlinedesign-tool die geschikt is voor zowel professionele ontwerpers als gewone gebruikers die hun creativiteit willen uiten.Met Canva kun je eenvoudig professioneel ogende afbeeldingen, social media posts, presentaties, flyers, posters en nog veel meer ontwerpen.Er zijn veel sjablonen beschikbaar waarmee je snel aan de slag kunt, of je kunt zelf een ontwerp maken met de eenvoudige drag-and-drop-interface.Canva is zowel gratis als betaald beschikbaar, met extra functies en opties in de betaalde versie. Overall, Canva is een krachtige en flexibele tool voor het maken van professionele ontwerpen, en is een goede keuze voor mensen die op zoek zijn naar een eenvoudige manier om hun creativiteit uit te drukken.

Minpunten:

Canva is een geweldige tool voor het ontwerpen van beelden en andere visuele inhoud, maar er zijn een paar minpunten waar je rekening mee moet houden:Beperkte flexibiliteit in sjablonen: Hoewel Canva veel sjablonen heeft, zijn sommige van deze sjablonen beperkt in flexibiliteit en aanpassing. Soms zijn er alleen bepaalde elementen die kunnen worden aangepast, zoals de tekst en beelden, en niet de lay-out of de algehele stijl.Beperkte ondersteuning voor professioneel drukwerk: Hoewel Canva geschikt is voor het maken van veel soorten visuele inhoud, heeft het niet dezelfde ondersteuning voor professioneel drukwerk als programma's als Adobe Illustrator of InDesign.Betaalde elementen: Hoewel Canva gratis is te gebruiken, zijn er veel elementen (zoals sjablonen, beelden, illustraties) alleen beschikbaar in betaalde versie.Beperkte aanpasbaarheid voor gevorderde gebruikers: Hoewel Canva gemakkelijk te gebruiken is, biedt het niet dezelfde aanpasbaarheid en controle als professionele ontwerpsoftware zoals Adobe Illustrator of Photoshop.Internet verbinding vereist: Canva is een online tool, dus heeft het een internetverbinding nodig voor het functioneren.Opmerking: Ondanks bovenstaande minpunten, is Canva een krachtige en veelzijdige tool voor het maken van professionele ontwerpen. Het is een goede keuze voor mensen die op zoek zijn naar een eenvoudige en betaalbare manier om visuele inhoud te maken.

Aanrader!

5,0 3 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.

Shape Your Imagination with Easy Functionality

5,0 2 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.

A modern design solution for artists, self-taught graphic designers and entrepreuers

4,0 vorige maand Nieuw

Opmerkingen: Although I prefer a more robust design software, I very much ejoy canva and make great use of it, especially for more basic projects.

Pluspunten:

What makes Canva great is that it reduces the graphic design learning curve significantly. Someone with no design experience can create beautiful art or an effective design just by selecting a template, changing the images, text, etc. Because design is so important in the social media age, it gives Canva a broad appeal. Solopreneurs with small budgets can use Canva instead of hiring a graphic designer or purchasing expensive software like the Adobe suite. Artists can create beautiful pieces and prepare them for sale on a variety of online market places. Beginner desingers can start design businesses without having to invest tos of thousands of dollars and years into a University design education.

Minpunten:

As a professional designer who has been working in design for over 20 years, the software has certain limitations that prevent complete expression of ones ideas. There are almost no artistic/design circumstances that Adobe Photoshop cannot handle, whereas with Canva, there are quite a few..

Reviewing Canva

5,0 3 maanden 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.

Canva is good when it comes to graphic design.

4,0 3 weken geleden Nieuw

Opmerkingen: My expereince with canva is not bad because i'm still learning graphic design. Most of my friends who are gurus in graphic designs make use of canva and make a lot of money as freelancers.

Pluspunten:

Canva is what I use in creating flyers for my dance crew and music art covers for my clients using the readily available templates that matches the ideology of the design. Also, I love the fact that I can just search my idea for a stock image and get many options even from other domain that sells them. I can also download a template elsewhere and edit it on Canva.

Minpunten:

I don't use Canva to create logos because most of the interesting logos are always premium and has to be paid for.

5,0 2 weken geleden Nieuw

Opmerkingen: I currently have a brand of beauty and health products, and canva helps a lot with it, whether publishing for people who follow me or making a presentation for a company

Pluspunten:

I really like canva because it is an easy-to-use application, it has great features, it helps the user to find himself within the application, it is very easy to use and move, and in addition to the practicality of the app

Minpunten:

So far I haven't missed anything yet, but if I miss something I'll let you know

Opmerkingen: No issues whatsoever, or I cannot remember any :-)

Pluspunten:

Works as intended and won't disappoint, but the free version is fairly limited and the premium is too expensive for me.

Minpunten:

Price. I understand it costs to keep the business running, but would be great if they offered it as a LTD from time to time.

Best for Photo Editing and Graphic Designing!

5,0 vorige maand Nieuw

Opmerkingen: Apparently, I am vastly happy with Canva. I was not good at desgining but when I started using Canva it made everything simple for me. I really love it!

Pluspunten:

The best thing about Canva is it is very user friendly and anyone can use this. Image editing is super easy and convenient. The templates are very helpful for everyone.

Minpunten:

I am really upset that Canva doesn’t provide enough options to edit the text. It is very limited.

Canva helps to create any design in minutes. Interactive, with great templates, and very simple.

5,0 2 maanden geleden Nieuw

Opmerkingen: I use Canva for 4 years, and it's been a very satisfying experience. I use to edit my graphic designs very easy and fast. Just in minutes, I get a stunning artwork and share it in social mediam people just love it. I can search for any type of template and easily edit it. I just thank for the developers. Nice and professional creative ideas like this, must be shared. Just try it. You won't regret.

Pluspunten:

Canva helps a lot, when it comes to create a design starting from a pre-built template. Of course, I can star from scratch. But it's a great tool, and users all around the world love it. Yit has many great commands and a nice and easy interface. Easy to share and much more.

Minpunten:

Sometimes it's difficult to select the specific object or text. And the watermark is something that doesn't help a lot when we want to sale the work. Beside this, it's ok

I like all the templates for images and videos on Canva. I find it really helpful when creating bulk content for myself or a client, also, I enjoy that I can create a custom colour palette for my brand. This really helps with brand ascetics

Minpunten:

I think Canva pro is too expensive. I would implement a mid year for those just starting out who may not require ALL the features Canva has to offer

Canva Made Me Uninstall The Most Popular Vector Design Tool

5,0 2 jaar geleden

Opmerkingen: I am working as a content marketer. Since my agency is very small, I manage all the stuff alone. From writing content to designing graphics and to marketing them. For the jack of all trades, like me, an intuitive tool is needed that requires a little learning curve to get the things done quickly. Canva is such a kind of tool. When a friend of mine told me about this, I thought it would be yet another fancy editing app just for social media. But I was completely wrong. This is a professional tool and it has a bunch of features. Once, I believed that graphic design is not possible without using the so-called vector design tools like Illustrator. They are indeed more advanced for gigantic production houses. But, for small marketing agencies like me, Canva is more than enough. The main thing I liked about this tool is the power of its free version. No other tool is offering such flexibility in the free version. It's enough for personal usages. And, you won't have to face any watermark issues. Although, I have subscribed to the yearly plan and I am loving it.

Pluspunten:

The first and foremost benefit of this tool is easy to use UI. The traditional design tools, even in this modern era, could not implement a modern user interface. Although they have a lot of features, they are cluttered with unnecessary things in the UI. This makes a new person like me totally frustrated. Canva is very easy to use with a lot of free templates. And, if you subscribe to the premium plan you are getting a lot more. Design tools like Photoshop and Illustrator require a lot of processing power and storage space. Do you know what is the most interesting thing? I can create a design with Canva while I am commuting on my 4 years old iPad! The inbuilt image and elements library is a great feature. I don't like searching for elements on Google and then include those in my design. Rather I just type what kind of image I need in the Canva search bar and 90 percent of the time I get that. Although, you can always upload your own photos to it. A good design requires good typefaces. The Canva font library is adequate for that. There are a lot of free fonts for you to try out in your design. Did I just forget to mention motion graphics? There are a lot of motion graphics templates too for creating engaging content for social media.

Minpunten:

I am using Canva for a long time. It's improving day by day. I don't think anyone will be able to mention any cons of this tool. However, certain things should be improved. For example, the image library should be enriched. If they can introduce the support for vector files it would be awesome. I hope the Canva team will come with more features that will help content marketers like me.

Perfect for Crafting!

5,0 3 jaar geleden

Opmerkingen: I actually use Canva for business purposes. I use it in conjunction with my Cricut machine and it is perfect! I've made price lists, notebook covers, coloring book pages, water bottle labels and I'll probably be using it for so much more. I love it, it's my go-to for everything! If you haven't tried it out yet, you are missing out! I suggest watching some youtube videos as well. Great for Marketing purposes!

Pluspunten:

The best part of Canva is the ease of use! I love all of the options and examples they have with the templates. They have so many template sizes for logos, flyers, facebook headers, business cards, and so many more. -Probably my favorite thing about the program is the autosave feature, which saves changes while your working on a project, you don't understand how much of a lifesaver that really is until you actually lose your work! - I like that there is an upload section so you can reuse certain images for different projects. The 'uploads' and 'your designs' are two different folders. -I actually just noticed that you can add videos to a project which is a plus for any social media platform. -I use a few different editing/design apps but I love the fact that Canva has both a mobile app and a desktop site. 'Over' doesn't have a desktop site yet and PicMonkey's app doesn't have the same capabilities whereas Canva app does EXACTLY what the desktop site does if not more -Another plus is the custom dimensions when you go to create a new project. Other sites do have that but they don't all have px, cm, mm, and inch options. -The 30-day trash folder is another lifesaver, even when you agree to permanently delete sometimes you don't really mean it lol I just went through every page to make sure I talked about everything if you cant

Minpunten:

-So I'm actually checking it right now because I honestly couldn't think of any cons I used to have an issue searching for free images to use as backgrounds on desktop but it looks like they fixed it! -I know I do hate when I add a background/image to a project and I go to expand it to fit the blank "canvas" the dimensions of the image don't stay and it stretches it and it gets blurry. If I notice anything else I'll come back and add if i'm able to but as of right now my main and only issue is not being able to

Excellent for "on-the-fly" design without the burden of $$$ software

4,0 2 jaar geleden

Opmerkingen: I use canva all the time. Not just for business but also for quick and easy personal things like birthday party invites, social media graphics for personal feeds, and I even designed last years holiday postcards from my family in Canva! It does not replace Photoshop/Illustrator/InDesign for more complex projects, but it's amazing for probably 80% of the design most people need.

Pluspunten:

Canva is perfect for designers and non-designers alike. With Canva there is no longer ANY excuse to layout anything in Word, got it? It's easy to use, has all the basic elements you could need to create nearly all visual or print materials! Need graphics for emails? Check! Social media? Check! Postcards? CHECK. This is perfect for those who need light but flexible design options without the financial crush or learning curve of full blown Adobe products.

Minpunten:

There's really nothing to dislike. Its' affordable, it's ay to use, it has plenty of options for elements and you can add your own if you want...

Perfect Image Creation For Busy People

5,0 2 jaar geleden

Opmerkingen: Canva has been an excellent program to use. It gets used for everything from web graphics, to marketing materials, and even newsletters. At this price Canva is a no brainer. If you need quality visual materials, but don't have much time to learn a program like Photoshop, you absolutely owe it to yourself to give Canva a shot.

Pluspunten:

I love that it is incredibly simple to create an ad or other marketing image and resize it for lots of different formats very quickly. I can create an image once and then quickly adapt it for Facebook,Twitter, Instagram and a couple local print publications. The numerous templates are great if you need a good starting point for a project. Workflow is quick and easy, support is solid, and the access to a wide variety of royalty free images is a very nice inclusion with a paid account.

Minpunten:

Honestly, there aren't very many. I suppose you could add more advanced features a la Photoshop. But doing that would begin to interfere with the ease of use that Canva offers. I understand that Canva offers some other features like background removal, but I am unsure of how to access them, and haven't really had a chance to dig in that far.

You can do it all on CANVA! You are only limited to your imagination.

5,0 2 jaar geleden

Opmerkingen: Using and becoming familiar with CANVA has been a privilege I'm honored to have. My flyer making skills are now comparable to those who use expensive software's such as Illustrator or Photoshop, without the hassle of having to go through trainings or paying those hefty prices. It has made creating posts for social media so much easier and enjoyable. Editing on CANVA is a breeze, not even Publisher can compare.

Pluspunten:

My job demands flyers, banners and marketing materials to be made daily. You don't need a fancy software to do any of those things, all you need is CANVA. Canva is beyond user friendly. They give you all the tools needed to create any project, right at your fingertips. They are constantly adding new features and improving their old ones. They have plenty of templates to choose from which you can make your own or you can start completely from scratch. Although the paid version obviously has better options when it comes to clipart and different elements, however, there are a ton of free options to choose from that are sometimes just as good! I am constantly recommending CANVA to people in all different lines of work, because it really does work for anyone and anything.

Minpunten:

The thing I like least about CANVA, which is in no way a deal breaker, is having to pay for the full version in order to have access to the best clipart/elements. However, I have always been able to complete my work and am always pleased with the finished product, all while using the free version.

Great for small business & personal application!

5,0 3 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.

I AM OBSESSED WITH THIS SOFTWARE!!!

5,0 2 jaar geleden

Opmerkingen: Overall I love this software and use it for any and all marketing tasks I need to acomplish, the regularly updated graphics and new graphics are always great and always poignant.

Pluspunten:

I love love love Canva - I use it for everything. Seriously....EVERYTHING I have designed wedding invites, thank you notes, monthly mailers, videos, social graphics, PNG's, JPGS, SO MUCH MORE! I also use them for printing marketing materials, christmas cards, posters, and more. They are amazing, the quality is great, I have only one time had a shipping delay and I print from them at a minimum monthly

Minpunten:

Sometimes the platform is down and access is impossible, but they have a status page which is nice to keep myself updated.

All you need in one platform

5,0 3 jaar geleden

Opmerkingen: Canva saves my time a lot.
1. I don't have to memorize the resolution & size format for each social media. Canva provides it.
2. Canva has many beautiful templates ready
3. I don't have to find / buy another stock images for my basic designs. It comes with your premium plan (which is quite affordable)
4. Canva has autosave feature, cloud base. I'm not attached to my desk :) Even I can do it from my phone. (Personally, I rarely use it from my phone).

Pluspunten:

1. Super easy to use. I use Canva to create my daily content. It's fast and easy to use. 2. Canva has built-in tools to remove background, controlling exposure, which is very helpful for my quick design. 3. Canva provides free resources (premium pictures, photos, design elements) that I can use freely. So simple that I don't have to buy stock photos. It's instantly available within the platform. 4. It has the presets & templates size for Instagram, youtube thumbnail, Linkedin banner, etc. Ready. 5. It has presentation templates as well!

Minpunten:

1. The cheapest premium plan only has 1 brand preset. I find it difficult to switch among brand because the cheapest premium plan only allows me to have 1 brand preset. (default color, font, logo, etc). Hence I need to change manually when I do different design from different brand. However, you can choose the more expensive subscription plan if you have this kind of difficulty.

If you need an easy design software, look no further!

5,0 4 jaar geleden

Opmerkingen: Overall, I can't recommend a design software enough. It is easy to learn, easy to use, practical, fun, and offers new personalization for projects that I was anticipating creating. If you're looking for something that you can really dig into, this isn't really that. But if you need one tool for everything you could need if you have some flexibility with your project, look no further.

Pluspunten:

I love how easy this is to use. I was able to figure out how it worked in minutes, and was able to navigate the different design options with ease. As this tool has grown, I have found that they have offered more opportunity to get really creative with customization. If you need a simple template and don't want to get too detailed, there are so many great options. If you have a vision and your own content, and you just need a simple tool to put it together, it's also great for that. They stay on top of trendy fonts, colors, and patterns, and you can really tell that they know what their users want. I have used Canva for invitations, newsletters, meeting agendas, and most commonly I make flyers with it. I run social media for a dorm and catchy designs are necessary if we want college students to take a second look. I have never found that I need anything but Canva.

Minpunten:

I haven't found what I don't like, but the ability to use gif images would be helpful. I recognize that if pictures move, it may go beyond what this software can do. Animated or not, some images are just in that format. Additionally, the search feature is occasionally difficult to navigate since you need to sort through free and payment required images to find what you need.

An absolute lifesaver!

5,0 2 jaar geleden

Opmerkingen: I have never had a bad experience with Canva. They are only improving their software every day. In fact, lately, it seems like they add new features monthly! I use Canva for social media graphics, ads, social videos, GIFs, and posters.

Pluspunten:

I'm a one-man show in many of my marketing projects for my clients and Canva has saved my life so many times! I've never been trained in photo or graphic editing software but Canva makes it easy to make high-quality graphics that are perfect for advertising, social media, and more. In fact, I've even designed multi-page, high-quality PDFs for my clients that are perfect for print and production. This software has saved me thousands of dollars from designers and countless work hours. They're also always making updates which are even better. They have included new services, effects, and styles to make your graphics look like they were designed by a professional.

Minpunten:

I think it could offer a bit more word/text/background effects. It's not perfect. There are many things you can't do in Canva that require Procreate/Photoshop or another service. Otherwise, I love Canva!

Graphic Design Simplified

5,0 4 jaar geleden

Opmerkingen: Canva solves a lot of design requirements problems & helps in in-housing graphic design for simple daily needs like social media and also presentations. Canva saves time, efforts and money for small and medium businesses that are running social media and some marketing all by themselves / small in-house teams with small budgets. Would say a must-have tool for all size of businesses as well as for personal purposes (will come in handy for all those e-invites, kids craftwork, etc).

Pluspunten:

1. Develop almost all of your creatives required - all by yourself & without any need of hiring an expensive professional designer. 2. Easy to use for most of the simple social media creatives. 3. The free version is good enough for most tasks - but the paid version adds a few features that will make it really good. 4. The new presentations feature is good - make a big push to visually appealing presentation decks - but may not be serious competition to Microsoft PowerPoint - but has features that are not there in PowerPoint. 5. Great Editing features from photo editors, logo makers, etc are very useful and take simple designs a long way. 6. The templates available are there for most of your requirements - they make life very easy and makes your designs look professional.

Minpunten:

1. Good for beginners and intermediate users - the experts will see a lot of missing features - especially when compared to Photoshop (Illustrator and Corel Draw are way above & are for experts only) which has most design features & has a similar price per month as well. 2. Video editing capability is missing - although they have a GIF capability which can be downloaded as a video file, you can't stake stock videos and edit them o add them to your videos. This is a serious feature missing as video content is the mainstay of most businesses & highly in demand by everybody. 3. There is a learning curve here - this may not be to use the software tool - but for design & creativity itself and the resources available on Canva are limited in this aspect. 4. Limited images available - even the paid ones are not that good - not sure why there is no tie-up with a Shutterstock & the ilk. 5. Sizes for banner ads are very limited - like there are so many ad sizes say for Google Ads which can be made standard (there is a custom dimension - but each time you will have to look up the specs and then create your dimensions).

Gorgeous app with a sea of options!

5,0 3 jaar geleden

Opmerkingen: I really enjoy the ease of the app, navigating around it and editing to personalise each piece of content. It creates fantastic outlines for social media platforms and enhances each post with a chic yet clean finish. Everything is able to be edited and adapted to perfection and to your individual taste.
What I love is that it has different sections for different platforms meaning as a result the layout for each piece will vary in size but create the same finished clean cut look as desired with the ability of having a matching version for a different platform therefore saving you the extra time trying to edit one specific post to fit a different version; for example a Facebook cover or a instagram live/ post are different size and specs. Using this app ultimately creates better outcomes in less time. I found I had more audience engagement and new content ideas. WIN WIN!

Pluspunten:

I love how personalised this app is. It is like the owners ( a young American) is having a chat with you throughout her daily app updates, notifications and weekly emails. (All interchangeable how often you receive them). I love seeing the app update with the tutorials, extra edits of content to use for your business for both premium and free members. The range that is available for free members is phenomenal, within its SEA of choices! The stock images are the best I have seen to date, they are vibrant and fresh. The app doesn't scrimp on how professional each part of the app itself looks alongside each individual section, tutorials and the photo quality. There is also a personal file section which is really handy to have quick access to something you have already made if you fancy reusing or updating something without having to start again (which wouldn't be too hard anyway) but we all love ease as humans!

Minpunten:

There isn't much I dislike. I think the app is fantastic! It is easy to merge with other apps. It COULD potentially be easier for the app to connect directly to IG rather than saving an image then uploading as a separate file.
