Canva is arguably the best graphic design application on the market. I recommend the application for users looking to learn simple editing skills. Canva enables you to edit, add text and stickers, borders and so much more. The app provides hundreds of templates for you to utilize for any purpose. There are many free photos available, but some images may require payment for use. The cost will run you about $1 for each photo. The program also offers credit packs which range from $1.99 to $99.99. That may be out of reach for many people, but the app still offers plenty of free options to choose from. If that isn’t enough, you could import images from your camera album or from free photo sites similar to Pixabay. The best part of the app is the ability to save the image and post it on any of your social media accounts.

In the app, you’re able to move, adjust, and reshape all the effects you apply to the image. You can customize your photos using over 500+ patterns and shapes from their library. A lot of the features are free but paying for additional features does give you access to a larger market. The Pro Pack has additional patterns, shapes, features for a flat rate of $1.99. The in-app purchases range between $0.99 and $5.99. If you enjoy photo editing, then this is the app for you. Just remember to share your exciting new images to your friends and family.

  1. I love using Canva to help supplement my posts. Most of the time, I’ll draft copy for a post and then use a graphic as a supporting element to draw attention. The surprising part is that many clients I work with have never heard of these tools and use Microsoft Word to create designs and then screenshot them. When we introduce the awesome Canva tool it’s eye-opening for them. I’ve never heard of Photocandy, but I’m excited to check it out. Thanks for your post!

  2. I am notorious amongst my friends as being a bad picture taker. For whatever reason, I just cannot take or post high quality pictures. I checked out both of those apps and already can see a difference in the quality of my images. I like that it is simple because I do not want to spend endless amounts of time editing and changing my original pictures. This will definitely help up my game on Instagram and other social media platforms. Thanks for the great information!
