Canva

Fast and easy graphic design app. Use online through their website or create on the go with their smartphone app. You can copy your designs for easy creation of similar designs. They offer many pre-formatted templates for all your design needs–IG posts or stories, FB posts, Zoom backgrounds, PowerPoint, flyers, handouts, ads, and more. Download designs in various formats–PNG, JPG, PDF, video, animation, GIF. The free plan is versatile, and there are options for app purchases of images, graphics, and elements for $1 (you can also generate income by licensing your graphics and photos with them for other users to lease). The pro plan’s advantage is easy resizing existing designs, saving brand colors and logos, and free access to all of their premium images and elements.
