If you’re looking for graphic design software to create your own designs, whether it’s a simple logo or more complicated print materials and web-based graphics, we recommend starting with a tool we use here at WestStar, home to “The Kim Komando Show.”

Our sponsor, Capterra, allows users to browse and compare software across numerous services, programs, and categories. Think of it as a one-stop resource that saves you time comparing and contrasting a vast range of software options.

Instead of visiting five websites from five separate companies and building a spreadsheet where you have to create your own comparisons, you need only visit, which gives side-by-side comparisons and user reviews.

But with so many software options out there, it’s important that you pick and choose one that meets and possibly exceeds your needs. If you’re a newbie in the field of graphic designing and you’re searching for the best software to learn on, do what us Komando staffers do and start with Capterra.

There are a lot of important traits and attributes to look for when searching for the right graphic design software that will best serve you and your vision. Now, most people want to just go with the cool software and call it a day, but there are a few important details you need to consider before committing to one graphic design program.

Capterra has dozens of options on its website for you to choose from and compare. Here are some examples we found when we went searching for graphic design software on Capterra’s website.

You can compare traits such as:

  • Price (always an important factor)
  • Features
  • Free trials
  • Deployment (web-based vs downloaded)
  • Number of users

Each software solution includes a brief description of the product and real user reviews. It’s best to compare only three or four options at a time — that’s what fits best on your screen. We love the side-by-side simplicity that lets you decide which option fits your needs.

Even if you’re not looking to use graphic design software, head over to and peruse through over 750+ categories of software. It’s free to use and you can even read through the more than 800,000 real user reviews before you make a purchase. Find the right tools to make 2019 the year for your business.
