How I Use It
I use canva for all my graphic design needs! Wheather I am creating an Ad. or web page design, I know that I can accomplish what I need with the easy to use simplicity of canva.
My Take
If it was not for the upload your own images feature of Canva, I would not be able to recommend this product. That being said, you can use your own backgrounds, images, and designs that are saved on your drive already. Canva makes it easy to import and imbed them with in-app cropping and editing options. Canva has images and graphics that are free and paid, but that is what creative commons images are for.
