Content - Do you know when to use Canva?

Last updated by Camilla Rosa Silva [SSW] 5 months ago.See history

Canva is an intuitive online tool for creating images and crafty digital designs and is particularly effective for designing engaging social media memes.

While Canva is a valuable design tool, it may not be suitable for every design requirement. It is essential to complement Canva with advanced design tools and occasionally integrate AI image generators for a comprehensive design approach.

Don't use Canva for complex designs

For intricate and complex designs requiring advanced editing or branding designers, professional software like Figma, Adobe Photoshop, or Illustrator is more appropriate.

Do not use AI-generated images for social media content, as the current quality is difficult to match professional style.
Note: This may be updated as AI imaging technology evolves.
