One problem with PowerPoint is its default slide layouts, which make it all too easy to create slide after slide of boring bullet points.

You won’t have that problem with Canva. It’s a cloud-based design app with a slick drag-and-drop interface for creating presentations, infographics, flyers, advertisements, social media headers and more.

Being a general design app rather than a dedicated presentation tool, Canva may require more work than PowerPoint but it offers hundreds of templates and you’re likely to be rewarded with more creative slides.

Canva is free, although some templates require a small payment and there’s a business version with collaboration and other features for US$12.95 per month.
