DesignCap for Web – TechNadu’s Review

Before we start, you should know that we’ve tested DesignCap via Google Chrome (on a Windows 10 PC). Being a Web-based application, you don’t need a powerful system and you’ll always have access to the latest version of this app. With this said, there’s no need for us to list our PC’s specs – since that kind of information doesn’t relate to DesignCap’s functionality or performance.

Platform Compatibility

DesignCap Review - Website

Being a Web application, DesignCap lives entirely within your Web browser. As such, it’s platform-agnostic and be used across all devices. Our Score: 10/10.

The get the best possible experience, you should run DesignCap on a desktop platform (this includes both Windows, MacOS, Chrome OS, and Linux). Theoretically, you could also open this Web-based tool on mobile devices and even tablets. However, having a large screen and using a keyboard and mouse looks like the most suitable combination.

In addition, it should be noted that you can use any Web browser to open and launch this application. This includes Google Chrome, Microsoft Edge, Firefox, Safari – and pretty much any other.

Installation Process

DesignCap Review - Sign-Up Form

DesignCap doesn’t need to be installed on your system, saving valuable disk space and resources. Our Score: 10/10.

Getting started with this tool is quite easy. You need to open your Web browser and visit the official website of DesignCap. Then, you’ll get to see a button in the top-left corner, allowing you to sign up for the service. After entering your email and password, you’ll be ready to proceed.

As you can see, DesignCap is not a usual application. Instead, it fully relies on your Web browser. In turn, this also means that it relies on the company’s servers for all the computing – providing you with a flawless performance. And since you can save your work in the cloud, you can easily switch between different devise and platforms, and continue where you left off.

User Interface

DesignCap Review - Interface

This application strikes the right balance between complexity and simplicity. It’s great for beginners and somewhat advanced users alike. Our Score: 10/10.

Once you to get to the editor, you will see a few key areas around the screen – similar to how other graphic editors work. It’s clear that DesignCap uses a proven formula instead of coming up with something entirely different. In this case, this is a good thing.

On the left side of the window, you will see five major tools named Template, Photo, Text, Clipart, Background – giving you a glimpse into what kinds of interventions you could do. As you start using these elements, you will see a series of related tools that are mainly based on drag-and-drop techniques. The rest of the screen is reserved for the area where you create your posters and flyers.

It’s also worth noting that there are two toolbars surrounding the main art-creation area. At the top, you can save your design, share it via social media, and print it directly from the Web browser. And on the top, you’ll find handy tools for undo and redo, and you can zoom in and out.

Speed & Performance

DesignCap Review - Performance

Being a Web-based application, DesignCap relies on the website’s servers to process your input. As a result, this tool comes with a fluid performance. Our Score: 10/10.

As we noted in the introduction to this article, you don’t need a fast device to use DesignCap. Being Web-based, this application doesn’t require a lot of resources to run. As a user, you will get to see a very fluid performance, without any bugs. Adding a large number of design elements to your creations had little impact on the overall performance. In addition, you’ll get to save and export even high-resolution files in a matter of seconds.

Customer Support

DesignCap Review - Support

The official website of DesignCap offers a nice way to get started – but you’re on your own for mastering this graphics editor. Our Score: 8.5/10.

Let’s say that you start using DesignCap but you can’t figure out how to use a certain tool. So, you should first turn to the official support page where you’ll find two options. You can check out the official tutorial or you send suggestions and question to the team behind this application. And that’s pretty much it.

In all fairness, DesignCap is really simple to use. It comes with a self-explanatory UI that is designed for complete beginners. However, you’ll need to rely on your own creativity and intuition if you want to get the most out of this application. Sadly, the company doesn’t offer advanced help resources.

Pricing

DesignCap Review - Pricing

You can use DesignCap free of charge – and yes, without any hidden fees. What’s not to like about that? Our Score: 10/10.

This tool is free-of-charge and you only need to register to get started. This means providing your email address and coming up with a password. There are no hidden fees here – you’ll see that all of its options come fully unlocked. We have to say that we felt surprised by this since DesignCap is an excellent all-around solution for creating posters and flyers.

DesignCap is a close-to-perfect graphics editor. We are certain that beginners and advanced users are going to love what’s on offer. With this said, our team highly recommends it to those looking for a way to get nicely designed posters and flyers that can be shared online or printed.
