DesignCap Review: Graphic Design Software Made Easy 4 You

DesignCap Review: Graphic Design Software

If you are a fellow web developer, we probably share something in common. What is that commonality you ask? I have basic graphic design skills and lack the creativity that some skills graphic designer have. That’s where DesignCap comes into play. It is a graphic design software aimed at making graphic design fun and easy. I’ve decided to give the DesignCap Plus Package a try.

InterServer Web Hosting and VPS

How Much Does DesignCap Cost?

I’m sure that’s the first thing that pops into your mind and that’s why I decided to start here. For the most part, DesignCap is free, but you can also from two other plans that give you premium features that I think you’ll find helpful.

DesignCap Monthly Pricing

Annual Pricing for DesignCap
Annual Pricing

One in particular is the High-End PNG & PDF Exports. PNG’s are often associated with the ability to have a transparent background. The PDF Exports are good if you have to put together a presentation or create an eBook. Depending on your budget, you can pay annually or monthly. I often pay annually for a service so I can get the payment done right away. For some services that have a high annual fee, I’ll pay month to month. Pick what works best for you or your team.   

There’s a Template for That

You get a template! You get a template! You get a template! DesignCap has several design templates that will have inspire your design needs. With over hundreds of templates to choose from, you’ll be able to customize one of the templates in just a few minutes.

With the plus package, you have access to unlimited stock images. These stock images have quality resolution that will make your designs stand-out. In addition, you do not have to worry about trying to capture your own photos unless you need to.

How Easy Is It to Design with DesignCap?

The moment you get started with a design, you will be presented with a blank canvas to your right and templates to your left. To the far left, you will have the option to choose between elements, photos, charts, uploads, text, modules, and background.

Elements

Listed under the Elements tab is various lines and shape types for one to use in their design.

Photos

If you have the Plus package you will have access to unlimited stock images. You can search in the search box or choose a category. This will allow you to choose the type of photo you want to use for your design with ease.

Stock Images

Charts

Charts is one of the most impressive features in DesignCap. When you click on any of the charts, a lightbox (pop-up) will appear. From there you will be able to edit the data set and it will reflect in the pie chart or line graph, whichever you choose. This feature is good if you need to prepare data for a presentation.

Uploads

You will be able to upload jpeg and png files into your design canvas.

Text

There are several text headings and fonts to choose from to give your design a fancy look.

Modules

Modules have ready-made designs such as “team members”—which displays a picture of everyone on your team rather in be at a job, etc. It also hosts a ton of other modules for YouTube and other social media.

Background

Change the background of the canvas by using any of the special type of designs presented in DesignCap. You can also change the background using the gradient and color table. There are a number of ways to be creative with the background of your design.

Downloading & Sharing Your Designs

DesignCap makes it easy to download, print, or share your designs. If you choose to download your design, you'll have the option of saving as jpeg, png, and PDF. Please note that the option to save as a png and PDF is available for the two premium packages and not the free version. You may also choose to print your design if needed.

If you choose to share your design, you can share by means of a unique link or post on social media. Social media platforms available to share to is Facebook, Twitter, Tumblr, and E-mail. If you share by link you can choose whether the share state such as public view, public and edit, or private view.

Sharing Options via DesignCap

Tutorials

If you should ever need help using DesignCap, there are several tutorials available on their site. These tutorials show you how to design various types of projects.

DesignCap Tutorials and Learning Center

Support

To get any support from Design Cap, you will have to visit the support tab on their website. There you will see call to action buttons to tutorials and tips, FAQs, and a suggestions and tips. If you click on Suggestions from our Team it will simply take you to a contact form to fill out any concerns you may have. I have not had to contact support yet so I do not know at this time how long it will take to get a response back.

Overall Impressions

DesignCap really is a simple design platform that will allow one to design graphics very quickly. They have some very good templates available. If you get the free version of DesignCap, you will be very limited on what you can do. If you need to be able to do more, I suggest upgrading to one of the premium plans. The best bang for your buck would be Plus package, which can be paid monthly or annually.

Give DesignCap a try for free to get familiar with how to use it and then make the decision to upgrade to one of the paid plans as you see fit. I use DesignCap for social media use for the church I attend and it makes a difference when you posts have quality graphics! If you have used DesignCap before, please let me know what your experience has been like! If you have any questions, contact us and we will try to get you an answer.

InterServer Web Hosting and VPS

When it comes to choosing a web hosting company to host a website, one of the main selling points is the amount of time the company has been in operation. Often times longevity may signify that the company has a product and excellent customer service. Interserver caught our attention because of their years in business and their reputation. As a result, I decided to try out their Standard Web Hosting Package.

About Interserver

Interserver.net is one of the best web hosting companies with 21 years in operation.

Interserver has been in the web hosting business since 1999. They pride themselves on three cores principles: quality, service, and support. Interserver has two data centers operating in Secacus,New Jersey and a data center in Los Angeles, California .

What I Love About Interserver?

There a plenty of things to love about Interserver. I will discuss the features I love about Interserver the most.

Pricing Model

One of the first things that stood out was the pricing for the various service types. I paid for the Standard or Shared Hosting Package. Let’s see how the pricing compares with other services below:

Price Lock Guarantee

The upside of the pricing structure is it allows one to pay either annually or monthly. We tend to pay annually but as of late paying monthly has been beneficial especially if you are on a tight budget. You can cancel at anytime as well. Having used services like GoDaddy, you will often see a low introductory rate and then a price hike a year later. With Interserver you can take advantage of their price lock policy. You won’t have to worry about any extreme price hikes after year one. Prices are likely to stay locked for a great length of time.

Free Migration Services

This is something you do not see often even with some of Interserver’s competitors. I’ve seen this with one other hosting company but not many others. If you do not have the time or know how to migrate your website data from your old host to Interserver, you can contact support and they will handle it for you free.

Customer Service and Support

One of the features I look for on a site is a chat feature. It saves so much time versus waiting to speak with someone. Interserver offers 24/7 chat support and 24/7 telephone support if you need to talk to someone. One neat thing I learned is that they will not take any more than 100 new clients a day. The reasoning may seem strange to some but I like it. Interserver wants to focus on their new customers to help them and let them know that their needs are a priority. What’s not to love about the type of customer attention!

To help cut down on users contacting support on some issues, you can find common solutions to various issues. There 1000's of support articles to choose from to assist you!

99.9% Uptime

All companies state that they have reliable up-time! So far with the WordPress site I setup (which is in basic form), I have not experienced any down-time. So far so good! From their website they state: “Industry-leading reliability of service and content delivery. We partner with Cloudflare and utilize its global network of caching data center.“
I have used Cloudflare and I can assure you the speeds are fast!

Easy to Setup Cloud Apps via cPanel

I setup a WordPress site easily via cPanel. You can also setup Joomla, Drupal, Prestashop, and many more content management and eCommerce platforms. If you don’t want to use any of those you can use the site pad website builder. There are plenty of options to choose from.

What I Don’t Like About Interserver?

Although there isn’t anything that would stop me from using or recommending Interserver, it has its drawbacks.

Domain Purchase with a Web Hosting Can Be Misleading

Disclaimer: I am not suggesting Interserver is trying to purposely mislead anyone. They have a different approach on domain purchasing when signing up for web hosting.
Upon signing up for the web hosting, I was asked to register a new domain or use an existing domain. I chose to register a domain. Unlike most hosting companies, if you register a new domain you, you end up paying for it along side hosting. Since I was prompted at check-out to pay for the domain, I thought it was included for free.

What you have to do is buy the domain after you have purchased your web hosting.

It’s definitely not a deal breaker. It’s that I have grown accustomed to signing up for hosting and the domain at the same time.

Final Thoughts and Overall Impressions

I must admit that I am impressed with the Interserver. Own major feature I love and I think you’ll love is the price lock guarantee. This means you will not have any surprise price hikes after year one—prices should be consistent year to year. This is encouraging.

You can pay monthly or yearly depending on your budget needs. When compared to the likes of GoDaddy you will save some money.

For me navigating the website was not challenging and I was able to find the pages I needed. If you have used cPanel with another host, you will find it easy to setup your website whether you choose to install WordPress or use the SitePad website builder.

With guarantee uptime and reasonable speeds, I recommend Interserver to anyone looking for a proven company that has quality customer service and quality services such as WordPress Hosting, Windows ASP.Net Web Hosting, VPS, and Dedicated Servers.

Top 3 WordPress Templates for January 2020

Happy New Year! To start the new year off, I would like to introduce to you the top 3 WordPress templates for the month of January.

The Generisys Business Consulting Multipurpose Template is ideal for a small to mid-size consulting business. I love the color scheme of the template--white background with splashes of orange and blue text.

2. Adam Smith - Creative Personal Tattoo Pro WordPress Theme

The Adam Smith Creative Personal Tattoo Pro WordPress Theme has a nice and subtle design. With its white background and black text, it will surely make the website stand-out to the viewer.

Divi 4.0 Coming Soon

Divi 4.0 Coming Soon

Today, I opened my email and saw an email from Elegant Themes. At first, I thought it was a tutorial of some sort. Boy was I wrong.

Come to find out, the email was about Divi 4.0. I clicked on the link to the announcement in the email. I then saw the heading below:

The Divi 4.0 Countdown: Win A Free MacBook Pro While You Wait For The Official Launch of Divi 4.0 The Divi Theme Builder

I immediately scrolled down and began to submit my entries via the Gleam entry form. Guess what? You can do the same thing. Go ahead and head over to the Elegant Themes website and enter to win a MacBook Pro. They also put a countdown clock counting down to the official release date.

What I’m looking forward most is the theme builder. Like Elementor and Oxygen Builder, you’ll be able to create your header and footer with ease.

I’m hoping I’m the winner of the new MacBook Pro and I wish each entrant the best of luck. Oh, and I can’t wait to see what additional features will be released.

Why You Should Use NordVPN?

Why You Should Use NordVPN?

VPN stands for virtual private network for those of you are not familar with what it is.

VPNs are useful when surfing with internet to make online transactions. A VPN will keep you anonymous online and will mask your actual IP address. To check your IP address, I'd suggest you try the website https://www.myip.com

When checking your IP address, you will typically see your Internet Service Provider (ISP) and a unique ip Address. When you browse the web your IP address is visible and some websites are able to log that information.

In order to keep your information and data secure, you'll need a VPN. Use an Amazon firestick to stream? You'll need a VPN to ensure that your device doesn't get hacked. Want to keep your ISP from throttling your internet speeds? We recommend NORDVPN. It is one of the most trusted and one of the best vpn providers.

With NORDVPN you will be able to browse the web with peace of mind. NORDVPN does not log your info and has high-speed servers to ensure that you're able to stream content via NetFlix and other streaming services.
