Track the migration of users to Instagram and similar platforms over the last generation, and it’s easy to see that pictures are worth far more than a thousand words. They’ve got plenty of actual revenue potential as well, which makes the need for good graphic design more important now than ever.
It’s tough to quantify what makes an eye-catching image, though algorithms will continue to make ever more educated guesses. For now, graphic designers are in demand. And good graphic design software, even more so.
Ask any designer: A good piece of graphics software should allow the user to create quickly and without borders. By that standard, Canva Pro might be the platform to keep an eye on.
The software welcomes users with a clean interface that is intuitive for even the most casual users but begs experienced designers to explore. And there’s plenty to explore: Canva Pro has a library of over 4 million photos and individual design elements, all free with purchase and ready to use in any format you need.
But it’s hardly just a repository of stock photos. With this software, you can resize and crop images with a single click, then add it to your own brand library. You can import content from a ton of sources including Giphy, then incorporate and customize those assets to fit your needs. You can use one of Canva Pro’s imaginative templates, or customize it and lock in the specs for future projects.
Images and templates are hardly the end, though. The platform comes with more than 1,000 fonts, and you can add to that library by importing your own or designing them in the software. You can even create your own animated GIFs and video content, all ready to share in your choice of formats.
Care to take it for a spin? A three-month subscription to Canva Pro is now $12.99, down 66% from the original price.
Prices are subject to change.
