Getting to Know DesignCap

DesignCap’s overall process is now almost the same as everything in its online category. You sign up (using a Facebook, Google or email address) and then follow the breadcrumbs. DesignCap prompts you to choose the type of graphics you want to create and then suggests various template visual effects for you.

DesignCap is very easy to use, even easier than Microsoft Paint.

Once you have selected the layout and template you want, you can customize it. Everything is drag-and-drop, and text can be edited like text boxes in any other graphic design software. I admit it is very easy to use.

My experience with DesignCap

Since DesignCap offers the option of a design manual, I was curious and tried it out. I’m interested because printed manuals often require higher resolution files so that they can be displayed well after printing. It is worth mentioning that once I tested the brochure template, the offered the option to download the file as a printable PDF.

I checked with a designer friend who agreed that although this booklet is simple (he is a designer after all), it can definitely be printed. This is a key point for those who want to use DesignCap as a tool.

In addition to downloading copies of your completed designs, you can also share them directly on Twitter or Facebook. You can also use this tool to email people and invite them to collaborate on the design of what you are doing.

Conclusion

Some of the people I talked to and talked to with DesignCap gave me quite interesting points. One of them was a teacher, and she mentioned that it can be a great way to create simple visual effects to help teach children. On the other hand, my designer friends have nothing to say about this, except for one thing it does not consume a lot of resources consumed by Photoshop.

Personally, I have been a writer or editor for most of my career, and I have considerable experience in layout and graphics, even if I did not make it myself. As a result, I quickly became bored with using DesignCap to run around.

Although it is very easy to use, I found that for the type of output I need to print, it turns out to be too simple. On the other hand, as long as you don’t mind sharing the template with about thousands of others, it’s great for creating instant visual effects.

From a small business or personal perspective, I think this is valuable, the former may be more valuable than the latter.
