Adobe’s Photoshop has become so iconic that it\u2019s used as a verb to mean the act of editing an image: \u201CThis image has been photoshopped.\u201D
However, Photoshop’s extensive range of functions can be overwhelming, which is why Canva, with its user-friendly interface, is a better choice for many users.
1. Ease of use
While Photoshop excels at pure photo editing, Canva is more suitable for a larger audience due to its intuitive operation and quick results, making it ideal for marketing, social media, and personal use. Canva’s ease of use is its greatest strength.
2. More than just image editing
Unlike Adobe’s specialized software, Canva offers a wide range of functions in one program, including visual documents, photos and videos, printing, and marketing tools, making it a versatile tool for various design needs.
3. Countless templates and layouts
Canva provides a diverse selection of templates for different platforms, allowing users to create a variety of posts with a uniform design more quickly. The ability to access Canva on multiple devices is also a convenient feature.
Canva’s subscription model, which includes a free version with limited features and paid Pro and Team versions, offers users flexibility and a cost-effective solution for their design needs. In comparison, Photoshop and Lightroom subscriptions are significantly more expensive.
