Fotojet Designer Review: Offline Canva For Mac OS/PC

From printables to digital marketing posts, you can pretty much do everything using Fotojet Designer, and this mac/windows app allows you loads of customization options that can help you achieve the professional appeal that graphics designers are specialized to do. Following are some of the best features of this graphics design tool.

All In One Social Media Designer

As a blogger, I have always struggled to keep up with social media posting as I need more than 5 or 10 different posts for Twitter, Facebook, and Google+ all of which have different sizes. I can not rely on graphics designer for two things, the lead time is high and costs are not justified considering I will need over 30 designs in a month.

Starting from cover page designs of appropriate sizes to the daily posts, I can get started in seconds to create my social media graphics.

You can choose from 900+ templates available for different use, and build on top of it using your business logo and custom text. Once you find the right template, you can customize each and every thing about it starting from colors, text sizes, fonts and even the images used the templates can be replaced by double-clicking the image.

Once you’re done you can save your project, so you can use the theme with new text or images in coming weeks. The photos, however, doesn’t get saved into the app so you must add them everytime you create a new post.

It’s a convenient way to instantly create posts for Twitter, Facebook and Instagram with available templates, and you can also create custom sizes of graphics for other purposes.

Design Impressive Printables For Events or Marketing

Fotojet Designer has a vast library of print ready graphics templates for creating printable graphics for marketing, events or any other personal use. Creating posters, flyers, leaderboard ads or even business cards can be quickly designed to be print ready.
