Snappa vs Photoshop

Snappa is the easy-to-use, fast, and free Photoshop alternative.

Customers call Photoshop “overkill”

If you’re here because Photoshop is slowing you down, you’re not alone.

Sometimes Photoshop is Overkill

...you shouldn’t have to open Photoshop, size the image and text correctly, ensure your file has the proper settings (so it doesn't become pixelated when shared) and then finally save the file and upload it.

Work Smart, Not Long

Photoshop and Illustrator are great, but sometimes I just need something quick and simple, no need for a full on graphic design. This looked quick and easy. Saving time is a god send. Work smart, not long.

Use Snappa to Save Time

My photoshop skills are "intermediate" at best. I can make lovely media posts, but they take me FOREVER. I was so excited to see that the templates made my life INSTANTLY a lot easier!

Cut Corners, Not Quality

I need to find all the corners I can cut without sacrificing quality. I could do graphics in Photoshop or Illustrator, and I have in the past and enjoyed doing it. But it just takes too much time.

Create online graphics in a snap

With Snappa, you can whip up graphics for social media, ads, blogs, and more in seconds. It’s easy to use, fast, and everything’s included.

Simple, clean, easy interface

To create an eye catching graphic, you don’t need to waste hours navigating Photoshop’s overwhelming selection of tools, effects, and menus within menus.

Snappa keeps the features you need in Photoshop, makes them easy to use (and find), and strips away the waste. Now you can create and share professional-looking graphics in seconds.

Never Watch a Tutorial Video Again

You know the drill. Run into a snag, Google “how to do xyz in Photoshop,” watch lengthy (and boring) tutorials, hack together a solution, and then do it all again.

With Snappa, you’ll create professional graphics without ever watching tutorial videos or reading how-to posts. It just works. Of course, help is always available if you need it (you won’t).

Edit Graphics in a Couple of Clicks

Have you ever spent a lot of time creating a graphic in Photoshop, only to have it look wonky and pixelated when you post it on social media or your site?

With Snappa, advanced edits are always a point and click or drag and drop away. Plus, ideal image dimensions for social media, websites, ads and more are available as presets. You can even resize a graphic for another platform in a couple of clicks.

Edit Graphics in a Couple of Click

I just finished creating my first image and I love Snappa already! I always wondered how people made these kinds of images, and just assumed I’d have to go through the painstaking process of learning Photoshop (the horror). This was perfect. Literally everything I needed was available, easy to find and self-explanatory.

Snappa is fast, loaded with timesavers, and you can share your graphics instantly

Snappa moves as fast as you do

Photoshop is made for designers with top-of-the -line hardware. For the rest of us, it’s cursors that freeze in place, loading screens that stay that way, and graphics that take forever to render.

By giving non-designers everything they need to make snazzy graphics (and nothing they don’t), we’ve managed to keep Snappa lightweight. Expect it to hum along in your web browser and move as fast as you do.

Everything you need in one place

With Photoshop, you’ll waste time looking for photos and graphics from other sites, downloading them, checking licenses, uploading to Photoshop, and finally editing them.

Fortunately, Snappa has everything you need inside. That’s 500,000+ HD 100% royalty-free stock photos, 70,000+ graphics and icons, and 200+ fonts. Plus, you get free access to our growing library of professionally-designed customizable templates.

Share to social media instantly

Without expensive upgrades, sharing your Photoshop graphics to social media is a chore. You need to manually resize your image for each platform, save it, open each social media account, upload your images, and craft your message for each platform.

In Snappa, you can resize your graphic and share it across platforms in a couple of clicks -- without ever leaving Snappa. And if you connect your Buffer account, you can pre-schedule your posts, too.

Let me just say that Snappa is making my life better. For years I purely used Photoshop but your templates and the ease of use of your software just makes it all so much quicker and nicer looking.
