@dmitriy_sergeev Hi! I extensively use canva and this looks amazing! The /home design could be improved with a bit more of whitespaces and contrasting colors I am new to front-end dev, it'd great if you could shine some light on how the /artboard editor was built and actually works, if possible. Thanks!
Adithya Shreshti
@dmitriy_sergeev Cool, just a quick question: most of the services like yours are moving towards animated visuals, when are you planning to bring creation of GIFs/MP4 as a feature (like Canva etc)

How is this different from Canva?
Sam McLaren
@brunohq Was just thinking the same, UI looks *extremely* similar
Lesia Isaienko
@brunohq @sammcpt Guys, we appreciate your feedback. Crello seems familiar because you've used Canva before. If you look at all our features on the website, you will notice that we are different from other online editors. Here are some of the advantages: - All of Crello’s 10,000 design templates are free - Free unlimited storage and folders to organize your work - 65 million stock images in comparison to Canva’s 1.5 million - 11,000+ free design elements (including images) - You can upload and use your images and fonts for free - No complicated subscriptions terms, everything is free unless you’d like to buy additional elements for $0.99. The usage of bought elements is unlimited. Please share your feedback and ask questions. ;)

@brunohq @sammcpt @lesia pretty clear thanks ! i was wondering the same
Lesia Isaienko
@brunohq @sammcpt @tlesenechal Thanks, we're working towards offering better solutions. ;)
Andrew Richard
@brunohq I was about to ask that myself, Same design and all. Am not putting Canva aside for a clone. Don't mean to be rude but have used Canva for over 2 years now and no issues so far.
Evan Kimbrell
@lesia so you're Canva but instead of 95% free, you're 100% free
Joshua Tiernan
@lesia sounds good. The million dollar question is "does Crello do transparent backgrounds"? That's a paid option in Canva
Lesia Isaienko
@joshua_tiernan Good question, thanks for asking! Yes in Crello you can save your design as PNG Transparent file. This option is free.
Joshua Tiernan
@lesia wow! That's a Canva killer. Will check it out
Jonathan Moore
@brunohq My first thought was to check to see if Canva rebranded as Crello. http://cloud.jonathanmoore.com/mFCH
Bryce York
@brunohq @moore glad someone did the side by side. this is blatant theft if you ask me.

@moore @bryce_york Guys, first of all, wouldn’t you agree that the functionality of many products has some similarities? You don’t rush to accuse browsers that copied Netscape. Bing also suspiciously looks like Google. Yes, we are similar to Canva but we took the best from what works well on the market. We really hope you take the time to explore Crello to see for yourself how we stand out from our competitors. Here is a quote by Jim Jarmusch that we thought you would find inspiring: “Nothing is original. Steal from anywhere that resonates with inspiration or fuels your imagination. Devour old films, new films, music, books, paintings, photographs, poems, dreams, random conversations, architecture, bridges, street signs, trees, clouds, bodies of water, light and shadows. Select only things to steal from that speak directly to your soul. If you do this, your work (and theft) will be authentic. Authenticity is invaluable; originality is non-existent. And don’t bother concealing your thievery - celebrate it if you feel like it. In any case, always remember what Jean-Luc Godard said: “It’s not where you take things from - it’s where you take them to."
@Bernardamus
@lesia I am another Canva user and there is a tool that I am missing in Canva and I am wonderig if Crello has it or not.... : a tool to remove backgrounds of an image in some smart way. Thanks in advance.
Liuda Nebozhak
Maker
@bernardamus Thank you for your question. At the moment, we don't have this option but it's definitely a good idea. We're working on introducing new tools and improving Crello so we’ll definitely try to make this option available sometime soon.
@Bernardamus
@lesia what I am strongly missing is the Drag & Drop of images that Canva has ... what are the MAIN advantages of Crello vs. Canva... apart from the "free gallery" of items?
James Heel
@lesia @joshua_tiernan Canva killer? I'll go check it out.
Abhishek Mishra
@moore @bryce_york @liudmylan Appreciate your honesty. Will give it a try for sure.
Bryce York
@bernardamus you should try using pixc.com and they'll just do it for you :)
@Bernardamus
@bryce_york thanks for the info.... but 79$ it's a bit expensive for a total amateur designer like me :)
Sam Cholera
@lesia @bernardamus this would be an AWESOME addition
Supratim Dam
@joshua_tiernan @lesia Probably the only reason why I will give Crello a spin
Leandro Thomas
Looks great! I like that you can just get started without signing up.
Lesia Isaienko
@leandrobthomas So glad you like it! We're hoping people will see the perks.
Denis Matveev
This totally kicks ass. In terms of functionality, looks like Stencil and Canva will soon be way behind.
Lesia Isaienko
@denis_matveev Thanks! We're aiming to be a few steps ahead ;)
Bogdan Ianatiev
Nice product! What new formats will you be introducing? Templates for CV maybe?
Lesia Isaienko
@ianatiev Great question! We actually have a lot of exciting updates that are yet to come. We'll introduce stickers, presentations, infographics and more design formats in the near future.
Daria Staverska
Congrats! This is so cool!
Lesia Isaienko
@daria_staverska1 Thanks for supporting us. We’re so happy you’re enjoying Crello!
Adi Goldstein
Amazing tool! What about drag and drop images feature?
Lesia Isaienko
@adigold1 Thank you for your feedback and question. Right after you choose your format and layout, you can change the background image to something from our library or your own uploads. This works using the drag and drop feature.
Adi Goldstein
@lesia that's nice but what about drag and drop for my own files into the "upload" section?
Liuda Nebozhak
Maker
@adigold1 We do plan to include this option in the next few months. We know it's a must-have feature and we'll try to add it asap.
cacarr
@adigold1 @liudmylan This is actually a deal-breaker for me at the moment, but I'll be checking back.
Bandela B. Mgoqi
This is cool. Congrats on your launch! By the way, love the video.
Lesia Isaienko
@bandelamgoqi Thank you! We tried to have a little fun with our video. Very happy to hear that people are enjoying it.
Bandela B. Mgoqi
@lesia who did it for you (if I may ask)?
Lesia Isaienko
@bandelamgoqi The video was actually a collective idea from our team. It's an in-house production, shot at the Lightfield Productions next door and the motion design done by our friend.
Bandela B. Mgoqi
@lesia oh, great.Thanks for your response.
Heiko Vogelgesang
Using it for two or three weeks now. Works fine so far. Hopefully an Android version will be available soon...

@webpassionist We’re so glad you’re enjoying Crello. It's a pity, but the Android app will be launched not so soon as we'd wish, but we'll do our best to release it in the nearest future.
Ahmed H
Will give it a try hope it's different from Canava
Lesia Isaienko
@meshoo12 Do give it a try, you'll find noticeable differences from Canva and please share your thoughts.
Amrit Aacharya
@dmitriy_sergeev @liudmylan - for the searches I made, 80-90% of the photos and icons ended up being paid icons. Why not give the first 5-10 icons/images chosen for free and get people addicted to your product rather than $0.9 per icon. Using the word'free' at multiple places and then seeing a small amount in front of an icon that you choose is a bit unfair. Its just that not being upfront about pricing is urhh..
Liuda Nebozhak
Maker
@amrit_aacharya1 Thanks for taking the time to review our product. Our free items include templates, fonts and images which adds up to 21,000 free elements in total. It would be a little misleading to advertise paid items instead of highlighting the great advantages of Crello. Yes, you do have the option of purchasing items but this is optional. For now, you can find images in the ‘Free Photos’ tab as well as some shapes, objects and illustrations in the 'Objects' tab that are free and ready to be used in your designs. In this tab, you will find free photos: https://prnt.sc/gehchf And here are the free icons: https://prnt.sc/gehd6g

I would never think this is a new product. It was recommended by a friend who is not from a "startup world". I used it to create a facebook cover for an event. Though Crello had several bugs *when downloading, a cover had several words just deleted from it - why? :'( * I definitely enjoyed using it – simple and fast tool as it should be when you are not a Photoshop professional and have limited time. At the end, I had to make a screenshot of a cover, because I couldn't download it with all that words I typed :D But it is cool anyway) Thank you, guys!

@alexandra_balkova We improve our product on a daily basis to make the users' interaction smooth and pleasant. I hope you'll excuse us for small instabilities. That issue with texts has been fixed, so don’t worry.
Alexandra Balkova
@liudmylan definitely :) The tool is cool, I enjoyed it even despite that issue)
Dre Durr💡
I love it 😍 Dope 🚬🚬 What's your business model? If you are morning driving revenue from .99 add ons.

@dredurr We develop new amazing features now and plan to add monthly subscriptions in the future. It will allow users get access to special tools and free content in addition to basic product functions. But we don’t have monetization as #1 priority in the list. Our team is focused on developing best-of-breed graphic design tool for everyone.
Emmanuel B. Lepage
It's look really cool, but it's look a lot like Canva to me.
Lesia Isaienko
@emmanuel_b_lepage Thanks for your comment. Even if from first glance Crello’s interface resembles Canva, we have a few huge advantages that make our editor outstanding. For instance, now you have access to a 65+ million collection of images in Crello.
 We analyzed similar tools and tried to build on them, working towards a better, more improved online editor for users.
