There’s a new photo editing app in town: Stencil! It differentiates itself by it’s ease of use, subscription model, and speed!
Ease of Use
Stencil comes with a chrome & iOS extension that allows you to clip images and/or text from the web as you’re reading. This will make curating other great content a breeze!
Sharing is available directly from Stencil to Buffer, Twitter and Facebook currently – more are planned.
There are also 1.1M+ photos, 2k+ fonts, and 600 templates all available for commercial or personal use. And all included in the subscription!
With Canva you pay per media item, with Stencil, there is a monthly fee ($9) that includes all resources including the browser extensions. Another reason to opt in to the paid subscription: you can also upload a watermark/logo and your own fonts to maintain branding! You can save your own templates and favorite images.
This is definitely worth the $9/mo!
Speed of Image Creation
Ever notice that Canva gets bogged down if you have a lot of layers? And saving and re-forming images often slows the browser to a crawl? You’ll get none of that with Stencil!
Give it a try in their free version. Each and every month you can create 10 images for free.
