Canva Editor's Review

While designing becomes a requirement for millions of PC users at times, a majority of them do not feel comfortable about using mainstream design software. The steep learning curve associated with some graphic design and print publishing apps keep such users away. However, the good thing is that you can actually design eye catching brochures, cards and web graphics without using typical design apps. Canva is web based design software that has been made to eliminate the quirks and hurdles associated with the process. The online design service can be used by amateurs and professional designers alike.

Canva can be used on PCs with Windows XP and later versions. It is also compatible with Linux and Mac OS X as well. Since it is web based there is no installation required and you just need to sign up for using it. There is provision for using your Facebook account to log in as well.  

The UI of Canva is very appealing and uncluttered. Even a first time user will not need a lot of time to understand the workflow. The post launch tutorial is of great help as well. You get a number of pre made templates to work with and it is also possible to start with blank canvas. Using the Background and Layouts tab you can design your stuff pretty easily. The drag and drop working method makes things simpler for users. Editing content is also pretty simple.

You can search for thousands of images in its various categories and the results are displayed fast. The text options are aplenty but you cannot use downloaded fonts. However, seasoned users who are habituated using apps with grids and guides may feel a little out of place here. The photo filters are nice as well. The inbuilt filters are adequate but you can also customize the settings.

You need to remember many Canva elements can be used for free but the majority of images cost $1. However, you can upload your images for free. To save a design, you need to select Link & Publish. Available options are PDF and PNG. You can also share the designs on Facebook.

Positive Points:
•    Sleek, uncluttered UI.
•    Free to use.
•    Plenty of images, text styles.
•    Cross platform compatible.

Negative Points:
•    Many items are chargeable.
•    Lack of alignment tools.
•    No option to use own fonts.

Conclusion:
Canva is a web based design service that can be used to make stunning brochures, cards and multi page publications replete with text and graphics. The app is web based and requires no installation. It is incredibly easy to use and both beginners and seasoned designers can use the app. The uncluttered UI and drag and drop method speeds up workflow. You can use pre made templates or start a new design from scratch. While most images come with a price tag, you can choose to use your own images from PC or social media sites. Except for lack of alignment options and font limitations, there is no reason not to use this service.

Rating: 4/5
