Photoshop is a real deal. It is really great to use it. But I feel Photoshop is not a complete tool. For Social Media graphics I prefer a combo. Mainly Photoshop+Illustrator/Adobe XD if going for an all suite.

@thesohaibkhan yeah definitely the way to go. They all work so well together. I find that it can be quite difficult for beginners and people who don't want to shell out $20+ a month.

@michael_joseph_aubry Yes I quite agree. But you know what? I have seen people and worked under/with them who go for mostly one or two of the aforementioned. Like if they really want to design websites and mobile applications, they go for Photoshop solely, which is funny as the real goal of the application is something else. So what I can not stand, is people using applications for more than the intended purposes.

I use canva because it is handy and quite easy to use. However, lately they have started charging for almost every element which is making Canva difficult to use for a small startup.

@michael_joseph_aubry Sure. But, I am not a user of Instagram. Could you please send me a link or prototype (if you have any) and I can have a look and see if I can suggest something on that. Would that work?
