Create Graphics in a Snap!

Can't believe I didn't know about Crello until this year, it has made managing my social accounts and creating graphics so SO much easier. It's a huge time saver and such a great source of inspiration day in and day out!!

Create Eye Catching Graphics without a Degree!

Some days the creativity is just not flowing. Crello ensures no one else knows that but you! Create content without digging to deep.


Hayden L.

An okay alternative to more professional software

Really like it. I used Canva as a portable tool when I was away from home, but it was way too barebones for me. Crello is better than Canva, but still easy to pull up on an iPad and fire off a quick design.


Anna S.

Good and easy

Easy to make posts for social media, emails and other small design products even without experience and special skills in design

Can't believe I didn't know about Crello until this year, it has made managing my social accounts and creating graphics so SO much easier. It's a huge time saver and such a great source of inspiration day in and day out!!

Pros

I love Crello mostly because of the no-fuss ease of use! Hands down the easiest way to create any, literally ANY style graphic for any and all type of social platforms as well as graphics for prints, e-books, business cards, posters, flyers, whatever you can dream, you can make it. Also the fact that there are never any hidden fees unlike some other graphics tools used in the past, which made you pay for extra elements used, once you sign up for an Advanced or Pro plan with Crello, you get access to a myriad of design elements in their library. That's it. All is there at your fingertips to use freely on your paid plans. I personally opted for a Pro plan as I manage various social accounts and create lots of graphics daily. Oh, you have loads and loads of your own design elements like fonts, backgrounds, patterns, images you'd like to use? Upload away and create to your heart's desire.

Cons

It could have been user error, but when I clicked on a project and went to pick a different design, it completely changed my project without the possibility of going back to the original.
In the e-book section, I don't like that it only gives you options to see designs for around 5- pages. But that's truly not a huge deal, as you can duplicate pages and page designs and keep on going.
The zoom option should be a bit more seamless instead of clicking the zoom button at the bottom, like a mouse scroll action of sorts.
Down the road I'd like to see a standalone app for Android and Mac, stepping away from using it in your web browser, but I know that's more in the realm of full software development. Just an idea. The Android app would be SUPER helpful though... Think about any and all social posts people make RIGHT ON their mobile devices!!
Very small things in the grand scheme of things, the software is pretty rad all in all.

Some days the creativity is just not flowing. Crello ensures no one else knows that but you! Create content without digging to deep.

Pros

Where do I start! The templates are fabulous! The animation posts are engaging. Graphics are sized properly for each platform. If you are doing any type of marketing this software is worth the price. And now they have an app!!

Cons

I'm incredibly appreciative of the app! My only real complaint is you cannot edit a graphic that was created on the desktop in the app and you cannot edit a graphic on the desktop that was created in the app.

Really like it. I used Canva as a portable tool when I was away from home, but it was way too barebones for me. Crello is better than Canva, but still easy to pull up on an iPad and fire off a quick design.

Pros

It's quick and easy. I have Adobe Creative Cloud and use that 95% of the time, but Crello is a quick and easy alternative. If I'm out at a coffee shop with just my iPad and don't have access to my desktop computer with Creative Cloud, and a client needs a quick something for social media, I can knock something out on Crello immediately rather than saying "I'll get to it when I'm back at my desk".

Cons

Lack of features. It's great as a portable tool, but doesn't hold a candle to Adobe Creative Cloud. It's a great supplement but I'm surprised when I hear it mentioned as a replacement.
