2019. Graphic design platform Canva raised $70 million



Canva has raised another $70 million to expand its graphic design platform. The round, which values the company at a massive $2.5 billion, brings its total raised to $166 million. The news comes mere days after the provider of design and publishing tools acquired the free stock image providers Pexels and Pixabay and launched a new subscription service for its premium image marketplace, Photos Unlimited. The new capital, however, will be used to fuel another new product, Canva Enterprise, which is tailored for larger brands and businesses seeking additional brand control and collaboration. Today Canva counts 15 million users in 190 countries.


2018. Weebly launched Photo Studio service



Weebly launched new service - Photo studio - for entrepreneurs who want beautiful, professional product photos for their online store. It works as follows: you ship your product (or products) to Weebly, then Weebly Photo Studio shoots professional product photos for you, you get a link to download product photos, they ship your products back to you. For now Weebly offers 3 professional product photos for $10 per product.


2014. Adobe Muse simplified professional website creation



Muse is the new kid on the block when it comes to the tools in Adobe’s Creative Cloud suite. It makes web design simple enough for those who aren’t professional graphic designers or developers to do it has been questionable. It has been around for less than two years, but Adobe has iterated major revisions roughly every three months - making significant strides in features and performance over a relatively short period of time. There are plenty of other Web design platforms out there. One that comes to mind immediately is Weebly. The primary difference is that you can use Weebly for free, while Adobe Muse is only available as a part of the Adobe Creative Cloud subscription. To be fair to Muse, though, there are fees associated with Weebly for more advanced sites that include multimedia elements or integrate e-commerce capabilities.
