5 Canva Pro Features I Can’t Live Without

by | Feb 10, 2022 | Business | 2 comments

Canva Pro has been one of the best investments I’ve ever made. The platform is not only easy to use, but with all of the elements, stock photos, and templates, it has helped me create amazing images and content for all of my social media platforms and more. 

You don’t need to have your own team to use Canva. You can use it yourself (just like I’ve been doing for at least 8 years. It will truly boost your productivity and save you so much time. It’s also great because of the organization aspect of the platform with folders. They’re lifesavers.

Canva Pro Pin

Canva has a FREE version like many creative apps out there, but Canva Pro is a game-changer. It’s worth every penny I have paid because it’s easy, professional, and powerful to use as a blogger and business owner.

How much does it cost? Well, Canva Pro is $119.99 when paid annually or $12.99 paid monthly, for up to 5 people. Any additional team member is $60.00 per year (which comes out to roughly $5.00 a month) on a yearly plan or $7.00 per month on a monthly plan.

5 Canva Pro Features I Can’t Live Without

Brand Kit

I honestly have no idea how I lived without the Canva Pro brand kit. This stores all of your branding colors, fonts, and logos so you can easily apply it to every image to maintain consistency throughout your images. Say goodbye to the days of using that magic color dropper that’s installed on your computer and say hello to a one-stop shop for on-brand designs.

Magic Resize

I used to manually make the same images within different templates before Canva Pro introduced Magic Resize. This amazing tool allows you to create one design and magically resize it into different templates with the correct formatting and dimensions. This works wonders when creating multiple images for Pinterest, Instagram, Twitter, and Facebook. 

Background Remover

Removing backgrounds gives me some weird satisfaction I never thought I needed in my life. This feature works great for Canva Stock photos with a lot of blank space. For example, I created this pin (at the end of this post) using the Background Remover and added a complementary color so it looks like a cohesive image.

Premium Templates

If you’re looking to have the same templates for all of your images, you can use Canva Pro’s Premium Templates to make beautiful, memorable images that will be shared over and over again. Instead of spending more money on templates, you can use all of the built-in premium templates that you can customize to your brand over and over again.

Content Planner

This content planner feature is so great because Canva Pro now has the capability to post directly to platforms like Facebook, LinkedIn, Pinterest, and more. You can batch all of your content at once and then schedule everything out through one interface as opposed to using multiple scheduling apps.

    I am also a fan of Canva Pro. It just has so much to give. One thing that I haven’t used yet is the background remover. I will definitely have to give that a try. I have been finding more and more to discover. I could end up spending so much time using it. Thank you for the recommendation. I am going to give the background remover a try.
