I like it because it's easy to use

I use Canva a lot, it helps me a lot with my work.

PROS

I really liked the ease of use and the many tools the app offers.

CONS

There should be more functions in the free plan, such as the transparent background, which is used a lot. However, I understand that the app needs to make a financial return.

Canva is Great for Social Media

It's not bad for someone with no design experience as long as they are willing to pay more for printing. For the higher cost of printing you could pay a professional such as myself to design for you and print at a lower cost and higher quality. The application is bad for the overall marketing industry because it has lowered the quality standard and impact of advertisements being created by business owners who think they understand marketing, design and printing. I recently said to one of my clients who owns a high end auto detailing business and tried to create some marketing materials on his own, "I don't now how to properly wax and detail my vehicle. I would probably ruin the paint job somehow if I were to do it myself. That's why I hire a professional. I wouldn't expect you to be able to handle a design, print and marketing job either because that's not what you do." In short, stick to what you know and leave the rest to professionals. It will cost you less in the long run.

PROS

It's very easy to use and offers a ton of design content for free. You don't necessarily need to search outside of Canva for images but you can if you want. It's great for designing simple social banners or marketing materials quickly but there is a catch. They are trying to sell you printing services and their pricing is not competitive with quality printers.

CONS

I recommend Canva to clients who need to create social media marketing images. I have worked with clients who need me to print postcards, flyers or brochures that they designed on Canva and there are issues. Canva is trying to sell printing services. Their design templates are sized and setup for the printer companies they outsource to. If you design on Canva and download the files to send to a professional printer then those files are not setup correctly and require alterations to be printed. That's if there is room for alterations, but not all designs will allow for easy alteration so therefore the customer is forced to print on Canva at higher costs.

Excellent for those who need to learn quickly

The overall experience is very good and worth every penny paid. Many features are offered in the pro plan and leave nothing to be desired compared to tools that perform the same task, being much more expensive.

PROS

Ease of use, numerous features and applications and features being added quickly. Usable items such as models, elements, photos, backgrounds, etc., hardly let us down. There are always good things.

CONS

Sometimes Canva presents errors when we try to edit photos that are too heavy. Sometimes I have to reduce the number of pixels in a photo so that Canva can work on it correctly.

Reasons for switching to Canva

Corel Draw is too expensive for the work I need to do. When my license ended, I didn't renew it.
