“The easiest graphic design tool you'll ever use” - that is how Snappa’s creators describe their product. You might think that “the easiest tool” is an overestimation, but making graphics in Snappa is REALLY very simple and fast. What I really like about Snappa is that the process of visual content creation here is thoroughly intuitive, which makes it comprehensible even for non-designers.
Apart from the fact that Snappa contains hundreds of stylish pre-made templates, this tool offers an access to the extensive library of free high-resolution stock photos, which provides an opportunity to be creative almost effortlessly. What a joy!
