What's the best alternative to Canva?

Both Canva and Linearity offer convenient templates for quickly creating marketing assets, but Linearity stands out with unmatched creative control and advanced animation features.

Design and animate without limits

Unlike Canva's limited raster tools, Linearity offers powerful vector-based tools, eliminating worries about size and resolution. Design and animate effortlessly for anything from Instagram stories to giant billboards.

Plus, we've got your back with raster support, including handy features like photo import, background removal, and soon, AI-powered background replacement.

  • Experience the advantages of both vector and raster tools.
  • Create versatile designs and animations for social media, billboards, and more.
