What are Photoshop, InDesign and Canva and how do I access to them?

Adobe Photoshop and InDesign are professional design programs that allow you to create and edit designs. You can download a free trial of either or both programs here or purchase a subscription via the Adobe website here.

Canva is an online web and mobile application which you can use to create and edit graphics. You can create a free Canva account online here. Canva’s basic software is free to use, while some of their more advanced features require a paid monthly subscription.

If you are new to design software, like with anything new, you’ll need to learn the basics of the software and how to use it. While InDesign and Photoshop are robust in their features, many people who are new to design find Canva faster to pick up and easier to use.

Both programs will allow you to customise our design templates however you like, so choose the software you feel most comfortable with!
