Still, I will tell you something common that you will get in a similar platform to Canva.
Well, Let’s see the essential features that you need;
You don’t have to use another app, such as remove.bg or something else, to remove any image’s background.
Just upload the image in Canva, search for “Background Remover,” and click. BOOM.
The image background will automatically be removed without touching the cursor.
Even if you think it’s not perfectly done! You can erase comfortably.
It’s a helpful feature when you create an image and want to create for a different platform.
Smoothly, you can resize by clicking the “Resize” option.
By the way, you will only get options for the Pro or Edu plan.
You can upload almost everything you need, up to 5GB for the FREE plan, and if you are using the Pro or Edu plan, you can upload 100GB – 1TB storage.
You can upload images, videos, fonts, audio, and anything you need.
QR code Generator
When you are trying to create a QR code, you need to Google search for a QR code generator and find a random website.
It takes too much time, and you have to download and upload the QR code.
But in Canva, you can easily create QR codes with your own URLs.
And use it anywhere you need.
