Pros

I loved the templates, functionality and the easy navigation.I loved the integration of audio & video on the presentation that was awesome.
The best and easy to download, makes presentations easy because slides are easy to customize, it's ability to print each slide directly. Has advanced designs and has multiple templates to chose from.
This software is versatile, making simple or complex follow along with slides with text and pictures to give the best learning experience. The clever infographics and videos are amazing.

Pros

The templates, icons, animations and stock imagery that come with Crello are seriously impressive. The fact that the templates are constantly being added to is awesome.
They really create an impact and attract a lot of comments and engagement when posted. I love that Crello is affordable and easy to use yet delivers such impressive professional results.
The quality and range of posts and videos I can create using their templates have improved my engagement and really stand out. It's a brilliant tool and they've made it so easy to use - I love it.

Cons

The worst thing about PowerPoint is the lack of creativity in the included templates. They are very boring and repetitive.
There is not much I don't like about it except for the problem of it not being compatible with non-Windows systems. Errors often occur that corrupt files or the presentation does not display properly.
I am using PowerPoint for four years I did not find any flaw but there is one point on the products that suddenly they stopped working and I lost my files on which I was working at that time.

Cons

The software don't have the quality the competitors hav, but the worst is they are very dishonest. They promise the moon and after getting the money in advance they start to remove your features.
I used to spend hours designing social media posts. When you are starting with a blank canvas it can be a struggle to get started.
The production process has crushed more times than I would like it to- sometimes everything freezes because of this. And there is not a mobile version which makes life a bit difficult.

VistaCreate

Fantastic Tool

Reviewed 5 years ago

So we needed a tool that would allow us to design impactful and interesting images to accompany marketing material and social media posts and Crello has allowed us to do that with the minimal of time and cost to the company. As a small business, we need to maximise our "bang for the buck" and Crello has certainly delivered on that.

Pros

Easy to use with some really great video backgrounds. Fairly straightforward to design something and anyone who has used software like Powerpoint or Publisher can pick this up very quickly.

Cons

I love using this software but not mad about the "jumping" between screens when moving from account mode to design...could be improved and smoother but it is not a deal breaker in any way.

Easy to use Web graphics tool

Reviewed 2 years ago

Nice graphics design tool and available at a decent price.

Pros

I have been using VistaCreate for a while now (Since it was Crello). I really liked how easy was it to make stunning artwork and social media posts. Recently, I have been using it a lot to great powerpoint presentations using the unique images and elements that are available on VistaCreate.

Cons

VistaCreate needs more templates and needs to have an app that is compatible with iPad screens.

Vendor response

Good software, no customer support

Reviewed 2 years ago
Pros

Easy to use, lots of templates, inexpensive (bought an AppSumo L:TD deal)

Cons

There is no support. I created a ticket and all I received was a ticket number. I created another one August 6, mentioning the previous ticket number: "Using animations and transitions, I currently use PowerPoint to take still photos from networking events we run and turn them into videos. I was wondering if this was easy to do in VistaCreate/Crello? If so, can you please point me to some relevant articles?" No answer on August 11, so I asked again. As of today, I still have no response!

Vendor response

Hello John! We are sorry you did not receive a reply from the support team. We work 24/7, so probably the reply went to your Spam folder. We suggest you contact us in Live chat for a faster resolution of your question. Always happy to help!
