Pros

I love the amount of flexibility I have with design and formatting. I love that I can save as a high quality PNG or make a PDF presentation of my slides.
Beautiful design templates to start from, a lot of charts another interesting and useful tools for presentations, tutorial and tips to do a very professional personal or business presentation.
My overall experience with Visme was great. I was fascinated by how good the presentation templates look and how well presentations can be designed with the use of this tool.

Pros

Truly great, customer service is always on top of it. Never a billing issue, fair pricing on premium graphic upgrades for use, and a beautiful portfolio of templates and content.
And this is the perfect tool for that to happen. Themes, borders, text designs, music and more are included in this tool which will help you create the best posts to show the world your best moments.
My overall experience with Canva has been great and beneficial. I love being able to easily inset my photography into the templates, LOVE for art events and art sales.

Cons

I have only two problems with the software and it has not stopped me from using it but it causes me a lot of frustration and time wasting, which is never what somebody wants.
It can be very frustrating to change fonts or anything when you have more than 10 slides.
But once you go through your first presentation you realize how straightforward and "drag and drop it is.

Cons

There are some you have to pay for.). Canva autosaves the projects so I don't have to worry about my work being lost as I'm working on it.
It can get laggy and slow when you're putting your design together. M imagining the website has a lot of components to handle, but sometimes the lagging is unbearable and inefficient.
I look at the tracking info and they won't be here until MONDAY. They screwed us over so bad, I will NEVER use this service again.

Visme

Very Helpful for Infographics

Reviewed 2 months ago

We use Visme to update our monthly impact report. It has been very helpful.

Pros

I appreciate the variety of templates and pre-made graphics which make things like infographics easy to put together.

Cons

Many similar tools like CANVA have a nonprofit discount, it would be good to see something like this added.

Awesome infographic and slide creating software

Reviewed 3 years ago

Works well and easy to use.

Pros

I love the variety of infographic templates to be able to use and create fun. More and more intuitive now.

I think it's a useful tool like Canva but it still needs to be more easier.

Reviewed 3 years ago
Pros

Good functionality,excellent templates along with a good interface. The branding is also professional.

Cons

Not easy to use,drag and drop needs to be implemented instead of the complex layer system. Canva is much easier.

Visme

Great for creating work visuals!

Reviewed 2 months ago

Great experience so far - more functionality than Canva (which I use to use).

Pros

The system is fairly intuitive once you get the hang of it and I love the templates!

Cons

The area of using data to create graphs is tough to navigate - often the data I enter doesn't show up and I have to delete and start over.

Visme Review

Reviewed 5 months ago
Pros

I used this product to create a powerpoint. It is easy to use and I really like that it has similar features to Canva which I use for graphic design. The paid version, has a lot of resources to use including images and other things. One of my favorite things was that I could download the presentation in different formats including PowerPoint and Keynote.

Cons

Overall, it was easy to use. It is a combination of PowerPoint and Canva, and since I have experience using both, it was easy to use as a beginner.

Visme

Incredible Way to Visualize Data

Reviewed 2 months ago

My overall experience has been positive! I used Canva before and I think that Visme is a significantly better design and visualization software.

Pros

This is an impactful tool to visualize reporting data and revamp our presentation and proposals. I have been able to visualize data points in a creative and compelling way. I have design freedom, but I also have access to templates if I need inspiration. I also think that the ability to add data directly from an excel document is a feature I now cannot live without.

Cons

The only thing that I do not like about Visme is the presenting and downloading options. If I want the interactivity and animation to show, the project has to published on the web or downloaded at HTML5. The issue with published to the web is that you cannot go full screen, there is a web search bar at the top. With downloading for offline, the fonts I have used in my projects do not download correctly.

Visme

Great software with an ever-expanding set of features

Reviewed 3 years ago
Pros

Ease of Use, expanding feature set and all round very intuitive drag and drop interface makes building presentations a breeze. Much faster and more professional than Powerpoint and more features than Canva.

Cons

Small glitches from time to time that require work arounds. For example, usign Chrome, export to PDF sometimes doesn't export the same presentation and will skip a table. I then screen shot the table and import it as an image instead. Would be nice if this was fixed.

Great Product Always Getting Better

Reviewed 2 months ago

Overall, I really like this product- there are definitely needs and improvements - but I'm a much bigger fan of this than Canva. By a long shot.

Pros

I do appreciate that you can truly customer the product and their addition of animation was a game changer

Cons

Often because they're continuing to develop it feels like you're using a new product each time- so just needs more consistency

Visme

I actually didn't find it as intuitive to use as others. We had to stop using it after a while.

Reviewed 3 years ago
Pros

The templates make it easy for someone who isn't a designer. This program is very similar to canva. Great for small businesses and individuals who don't have a lot of designer know how to hit the ground running.

Cons

Doesn't talk to any other programs. This doesn't work offline. Hard to maintain our branding on it.

Visme

Great Substitute To Canva

Reviewed a year ago

We've created a lot of infographics outside of the usual videos that we produced to add onto blog posts. This has proved to be quite valuable to site visitors.

Pros

Like Canva, Visme has a ton of templates for presentations and graphics that I can prepare for social media posts. But the best part of it is creating infographics and how easily I can manipulate them without the use of more complex software.

Cons

Visme can improve a lot if there is a larger variety and amount of icons and graphics offered. Perhaps have community submitted ones.
