Snappa vs Photoshop

Snappa is the easy-to-use, fast, and free Photoshop alternative.

Customers call Photoshop “overkill”

If you’re here because Photoshop is slowing you down, you’re not alone.

Sometimes Photoshop is Overkill shouldn’t have to open Photoshop, size the image and text correctly, ensure your file has the proper settings (so it doesn't become pixelated when shared) and then finally save the file and upload it.

Work Smart, Not Long

Photoshop and Illustrator are great, but sometimes I just need something quick and simple, no need for a full on graphic design. This looked quick and easy. Saving time is a god send. Work smart, not long.

Use Snappa to Save Time

My photoshop skills are "intermediate" at best. I can make lovely media posts, but they take me FOREVER. I was so excited to see that the templates made my life INSTANTLY a lot easier!

Cut Corners, Not Quality

I need to find all the corners I can cut without sacrificing quality. I could do graphics in Photoshop or Illustrator, and I have in the past and enjoyed doing it. But it just takes too much time.

Megan - Director of Marketing


I just finished creating my first image and I love Snappa already! I always wondered how people made these kinds of images, and just assumed I’d have to go through the painstaking process of learning Photoshop (the horror). This was perfect. Literally everything I needed was available, easy to find and self-explanatory.

Snappa is fast, loaded with timesavers,
and you can share your graphics instantly

A simple, clean, easy interface

You’re an entrepreneur, marketer, or blogger -- not a professional designer. You don’t have time to search through a bunch of tools you don’t use or memorize keyboard shortcuts.

Snappa strips away all of the complexity. Everything you need is in plain sight (no menus within menus), and you can create professional-looking graphics, fast (no keyboard shortcuts required).

Easy-to-edit templates and graphics

Ever feel like ripping your hair out while trying to get your graphic just right? Perhaps you’ve even endured long tutorial videos and how-to articles to get unstuck.

With Snappa, advanced edits are only a point and click or drag and drop away. Of course, there’s all kinds of help if you need it (you probably won’t, though).

All photos and graphics are free

With Photoshop, you’ll waste time looking for photos and graphics from other sites, downloading them, checking licenses, uploading to Photoshop, and finally editing them.

Fortunately, Snappa has everything you need inside. That’s 5,000,000+ HD 100% royalty-free stock photos, 70,000+ graphics and icons, and 200+ fonts. Plus, you get free access to our growing library of professionally-designed customizable templates.

Snappa moves as fast as you do

Photoshop is made for designers with top-of-the-line hardware. For the rest of us, it’s cursors that freeze in place, loading screens that stay that way, and graphics that take forever to render.

By giving non-designers everything they need to make snazzy graphics (and nothing they don’t), we’ve managed to keep Snappa lightweight. Expect it to hum along in your web browser and move as fast as you do.


Let me just say that Snappa is making my life better. For years I purely used Photoshop but your templates and the ease of use of your software just makes it all so much quicker and nicer looking.
