High Quality with Affordable Options

Review Source: Capterra

With Design Wizard's high-resolution, quality imaging and designs, I'm able to capture 20% more of my customer's attention, allowing me to grow my business and increase my market share. I'm so grateful for Design Wizard!

Pros
I love the simplified platform. It allows even non-designers to create beautiful work. I love the image database. It's almost always got just what I need to get my message across to my customers. I love that I can lock down certain parts of an image and play around with different layers. I love the video options, this is a novel idea that is eye-catching. I love the way I can download a preview of my image, before downloading a high-res copy and spending a credit. I love the freedom I have in each design, placing images, texts and numbers wherever I want to put them. Most of all, I love the quality of the images that I'm now producing on Design Wizard. My customers are raving about how professional they look. Thanks, Design Wizard.

Cons
If you're going to add multiple elements to your image, each one may end up costing you a bit.

A great graphics design tool for non-designers

Review Source: Capterra

Overall, Design Wizard has allowed me to decrease the amount of time I spend creating graphics for my content marketing efforts. It's been a great boon in creating high-quality images and it's easy to use. Their pre-made templates are also very well designed and make it easy for non-designers to create beautiful graphics for online or print distribution.

Pros
I like that I can create my own design 'templates' and update them when I create new graphics sets. It's very flexible and the stock photography they offer is top-notch! I love that I can find a vast swath of stock photos that aren't available elsewhere - that really adds to the value of this tool.

Cons
I wish I could have more than five boards per design. I like to streamline my design process by creating all the graphics in a set at once and having to switch between designs in order to access enough art boards is annoying. I also wish that the grid tool was more robust and that there was some sort of positioning feature. It's hard to tell if an element is properly aligned within a design, so most of the time, I just have to guess and it's frustrating.

An easy way to create blog and social media graphics

In addition to being easy to use, I like that you can share your creations directly from Design Wizard to Facebook, Twitter, LinkedIn or Buffer, so you don’t have to spend time and bandwidth downloading to your computer, then uploading to the other site. You can even embed your images or videos right on your website!

Pros
I’m pretty impressed with the extensive library of design templates. Every time I log in, it shows me a different collection, and the variety is fantastic. I had fun searching for images and designs that would meet my needs and found the app much easier to use than Canva.

Cons
It would be nice if there was a way to filter the search results to show only free options, but I understand that the business has to make money. If they made it too easy to create great designs for free, users would be less likely to purchase premium images or a monthly subscription.

Good tool to save time to publish to Social media

Review Source: Capterra

I recommend this tool for you if you don't want to use a comprehensive design program to create your social media posts, but you need professionally looking designs. It will save time for you.

Pros
It is a good tool for those who are not good at using comprehensive desktop publishing and designer applications. It offers templates and resize feature to Social media channels. So it is really easy to redesign a post to LinkedIn, Twitter, Facebook etc. for each the best fitting image size. It supports videos also. It has a free version, but it has really limited function with a few templates and you are not allowed to upload your own images. In the Pro and Business versions however you can easily upload your own fonts and images and you can publish directly to your Social media account.

Cons
The free version is really limited, and it is impossible to upload own images and the price for the business version is a bit high.

Design Wizard is missing many features that even free tools are offering

Review Source: Capterra

I bought DW in order to save time with basic designs like images for my blog posts and social media, but instead of saving time I just struggled with the lack of basic features and ended up spending more time on my designs.

Pros
In general I like the features that Design Wizard offers to create images and videos.

Cons
What I did not like is the lack of options to personalize some of the resources they have, many times after trying to design something on DW I end up using another tool because DW couldn't do the job. The look of the preset designs is old and do not catch the attention, so definitely it requires a lot of customization, I used other tools where many of the presets are ready to go and you just need to edit the text.

Pros
The ease of use, all the fonts and colors that are available. I also like that I can upload my own photos and use them as ads. The ads and provided templates give me a professional Facebook ad.

Cons
Sometimes the search function does not always bring the results I am looking for, also sometimes the program freezes up and I have to start over.

Taken the stress away from design

I'm really happy with Design Wizard and would go to it first, before considering hiring someone to do any design work at all.

Pros
It's so easy to use, without a need for documents, FAQ pages or customer support. I got started and found that I could create adverts, covers and other media really easily and quickly. In fact, each design takes the same time it would take to create an advert and hire someone to do it. With so many ready-made templates, you can click each section and re-write or switch out elements. Anyone could create a professional result.

Cons
There's nothing major. On one occasion I spent time making a FB cover with video background. FB didn't accept it because the video wasn't long enough. Not sure if that was an issue with Design Wizard (I think I was in the FB cover section) or if I should have known about the time constraint.

Fairly easy to find your way around, and has most functions needed to create designs.

Pros
Design Wizard has beautiful layouts that work well for desired outcomes. I love that complementary colours are automatically suggested.

Cons
Disappointed that my query was not responded to (I eventually solved it myself). I'd like a 'custom design' option to be able to choose a unique size, rather than only the template options. I would like to have folders available so that designs created for different projects can be easily located. If DW could work out a way that if you pay for design once, you can use it again, they'd have me as their regular customer. (At present if one creates and downloads a design, and then spots something that needs to be changed, it seems one pays again for the altered download! )

Response from Wave Break Media


Hi Val,

Thank you for your review and feedback, we really appreciate it.

I'm sorry that you didn't receive our response related to your customer query. You can download a free preview of your design to check alignment etc without using any of your credits.

I will send you information about this in my email to you.

Best regards,

Claire

Very smooth. Definitely worth sticking around to see what many more cool things they add up with time.

Pros
I came across Design Wizard very recently and I´m trying it out. The features I´m discovering are really amazing and the video resources are very accessible to buy. The animations are also a feature that I am enjoying.

Cons
Since I am used to other platforms, I have to look around for my favourite features to be able to work fluently. Also, you can't use your own images unless you upgrade (or use the 14-day trial which requires you to add a payment method).
