Automatic Design Saving
Think for some moment that you have to travel suddenly for a business trip and you have not taken your PC with you in which you have created all your designs. What would you do? Obviously, you would not want to make all those designs repeatedly to present to your customers as you know how much time it already took the first time to make it perfect.
However, with Canva, you don’t have to go through all this trouble. It is made intelligent enough to automatically save all the designs that you have created on one PC. If you have made your account on the software, you can log in to it at any place and anywhere in the world, and it will take you to your already created designs.
This feature is helpful as it allows you to access your designs anytime, and you do not necessarily have to save your designs in the drive, and even you do not have to worry if your PC malfunctions or shuts down suddenly because your design gets automatically saved.
Easy Logo uploading
When you are working for a company and are busy making the design, you are required to use a specific logo, and Canva lets you upload the logo for free. Not only this, but it also lets you save the particular image/logo that you have just created in the drive of your account in case you feel the need for it again in the near future.
So, these were some of the most benefitting features that it provides to all its users. When you get used to Canva, you will not enjoy using any other similar software used for creating logos or images for the brands.
