On December 13, 2021, Adobe released an updated version of Adobe Spark called the Creative Cloud Express, which is a browser and mobile application meant to rival Canva as a tool for producing content for social media.
Canva is one of the most well-known graphic design tools on the web. With its numerous free templates and tools, users don’t need to invest in complex software to create an attractive design themselves.
Adobe Creative Cloud Express is a cloud-based tool for creating visual assets that is available on browsers and your smartphone’s dedicated app store. It incorporates basic photo and video editing features included in other Adobe products and packs them into an intuitive UI that is also integrated with Adobe Stock and Adobe Fonts.
Canva offers three plans, including a free one, as well as Pro and Enterprise packages. The price for Canva Pro is $12.99/month. This plan is recommended as an annual subscription if you are an individual or small business owner. By the way, you can test this version for 30 days for free. The Enterprise plan offers advanced capabilities and controls and is suitable for large businesses and companies. You can find out its price by contacting the developers.
Adobe Creative Cloud Express is available in two editions - Free and Premium. The Free plan offers thousands of professional templates, graphic assets, and fonts, a limited selection of Adobe Stock images, and simple photo editing tools as well as background removal and animation features.
The Premium version will send you back $9.99 a month but is also available as a 30-day free trial. With this plan, you gain access to 175 million stock photos, 20000 fonts, and several premium tools included in Ps Express and Premiere Rush. Other notable inclusions are cutout, resize, and graphic group features as well as 100GB of free cloud storage. By taking advantage of regularly occurring Adobe discounts, you can get this application for an even lower price.
Both design platforms provide a mobile app and are suitable for any business that wishes to create consistent content for social networks. Since their functionality overlaps quite a bit, many users don’t know if they should use Canva or Adobe Creative Cloud Express. The best option is to prioritize the direction or shared use where the strengths of one product cover up the disadvantages of another.
Canva offers convenient features for non-designers, more integrations, professional templates, improved settings, and collaboration capabilities. Assuming that you will only create free graphics or want to have greater control over your graphic designs, use Canva.
Adobe Creative Cloud Express is one of the most convenient tools for creating content for social media. It enables even complete beginners to produce captivating videos, graphics, and web content in a matter of minutes. It also offers basic image editing tools and gives you a lot of space for implementing your creative graphic design ideas.
For excellent consistency, use Canva on the PC and Adobe Creative Cloud Express as one of Canva alternatives on your smartphone or tablet.
