Best Canva Apps
While Canva offers an amazing selection of hundreds of unique apps, depending upon how you use Canva, only a fraction of these will directly help you improve your graphic design workflow. In order to help you find the best tools (without spending hours of your time trying each Canva App), we’ve put together a list of the best Canva Apps! We’ve also provided some examples of how these Canva Apps can be used.
1. Canva Image Background Remover App
Canva’s Image Background Remover App is without a doubt one of its best apps. With Canva’s Background Remover, anyone can remove the background of any photo or image in just seconds, with a single click, 100% automatically.
Cropping Photos. Canva’s image background remover tool allows you to easily crop photos. Using its built in eraser and restorer tool, you can easily choose which elements of a photo you want to keep, and which to remove.
Creating custom background. Sometimes you want to change the background in a photo. Canva’s background remover tool allows users to easily create a custom background for their photo.
As you can see, Canva’s Video Background Remover actually does a stunning job removing the background of this video! Even when overlayed on a bright orange background (extremely high contrast), there are few elements, other than the intended subject, that make it into the final video.
