Crello – An Intuitive and Content Rich Video and Graphic Design Platform

We have recently become aware of an interesting video and graphic design platform called Crello. At just two years old this successful platform is aimed at freelancers, photographers, bloggers or novices. It is available on desktop PC/Mac and also on mobile within the Apple App store. It is also soon to become available within the Google Play store on Android too.

Crello have a vast volume of content and have recently expanded their range to include half a million premium images. To achieve this volume of stock, Crello partnered with professional photographers and private photo studios. Resulting in unique content that is not available within other free stock agencies.

Crello represent a compelling and very easy to use platform in order to source images and videos. Their future impressive plans include increasing the number of new videos to 3,500.

Currently, the stock images themselves can be edited to include motion effects, it’s also possible to add photos within a design.  The premium photographs are organised clearly within 22 categories, including, pets, beauty, business and finance, food and drinks etc.

The 20,000 ready to use templates themselves are a real boon and one that I think will appeal to many users and not only to the market that Crello are specifically aiming at. If you need to promote your work, the preset templates can be a good idea on which to base your design and then further edit. There is also a new option coming soon allowing budding designers of templates to create and sell them within this platform too.

Celebrating their 2nd anniversary, Crello have created a special offer – in addition to the new editing feature, all paid subscribers will receive FREE access to 500,000 premium photos (total worth estimated at $7M). For more information on this, please go here.
