As of June 2022, Can­va with­out a VPN is no longer avail­able to users in Rus­sia. And sub­scrip­tions to many ana­logues (for­eign) can­not be paid due to the lim­i­ta­tions of the bank­ing sys­tem. This arti­cle has col­lect­ed Can­va ana­logues that work in Rus­sia. They will be use­ful for design­ers, SMMs, stu­dents and every­one who uses graph­ic edi­tors.

We have col­lect­ed in this arti­cle pro­grams that can be used not only by pro­fes­sion­als, but also by begin­ners. Pho­to: blog.lapid.de

What services are included in the list

one. Domes­tic.

2. For­eign. Those who have a free sub­scrip­tion — since it is still impos­si­ble to pay the required tar­iff with a card from the Russ­ian Fed­er­a­tion. There­fore, we will high­light the advan­tages of free sub­scrip­tions.

3. With pre-made tem­plates. The most impor­tant cri­te­ri­on is that not only pro­fes­sion­als can use it.

A good alter­na­tive to Can­va is pro­fes­sion­al edi­tors. For exam­ple: Pho­to­shop, GIMP. These are con­ve­nient pro­grams with a large set of tools. But work­ing with them is more dif­fi­cult than with edi­tors-con­struc­tors, since you have to do every­thing your­self, from scratch, there are no ready-made built-in tem­plates, pho­to data­bas­es, etc.

But online edi­tor Can­va was used not only by pro­fes­sion­al design­ers and artists. More stu­dents, teach­ers, peo­ple of dif­fer­ent pro­fes­sions — the ser­vice allowed you to make pre­sen­ta­tions, diaries, home­work tem­plates, action plans, and much more.

There­fore, our goal is to offer sim­i­lar resources that not only pro­fes­sion­als can use.

A sim­ple edi­tor with a lot of ready-made tem­plates. Not quite a famil­iar moment — what is usu­al­ly called “Project” or “Design” in sim­i­lar pro­grams is called “Doc­u­ment” (“My Doc­u­ments”) here. You can cre­ate fold­ers that con­tain dif­fer­ent doc­u­ments. For exam­ple, for each project, you can cre­ate a fold­er and cre­ate sep­a­rate doc­u­ments in it.

This is what the start page of the Lucid­press edi­tor looks like. Illus­tra­tion: Eliza­ve­ta Chupiko­va, Photostore.Expert

The ser­vice is entire­ly in Eng­lish. Per­haps this is its main dis­ad­van­tage. But the inter­face is intu­itive. There­fore, even with min­i­mal knowl­edge of the Eng­lish lan­guage, you can deter­mine where which but­ton is locat­ed.

The pro­gram has sev­er­al thou­sand ready-made tem­plates. Part is avail­able in the free ver­sion. Illus­tra­tion: Eliza­ve­ta Chupiko­va, Photostore.Expert

Even in the free ver­sion, you can give anoth­er user a link to a doc­u­ment. The paid ver­sion has more fea­tures. For exam­ple, you can imme­di­ate­ly insert a ban­ner on your site.

All ele­ments of the select­ed tem­plate can be replaced, rotat­ed, enlarged or reduced. You can also embed videos from YouTube, Vimeo. But you can’t add an audio track. Illus­tra­tion: Eliza­ve­ta Chupiko­va, Photostore.Expert

What’s included in the free version

  • Abil­i­ty to cre­ate 3 doc­u­ments (they can have sev­er­al pages).
  • Lots of dif­fer­ent tem­plates.
  • The abil­i­ty to cre­ate your own doc­u­ments from scratch (use ready-made frames, shapes, add your own pho­tos, videos from pop­u­lar ser­vices).
  • Pos­si­bil­i­ty to down­load the doc­u­ment in PDF, PNG, PNG (with trans­par­ent back­ground), JPEG.

Suit­able if:

  • adding audio tracks is not impor­tant;
  • Three free doc­u­ments are enough. For exam­ple, you just need to make a new ban­ner every week using one tem­plate;
  • you need a sim­ple edi­tor with­out a large data­base of icons, logos and pho­tos.

For a pro­fes­sion­al tool design­er, I would like more.

Gravit Designer

A share­ware ana­logue of Can­va in Russ­ian, which works in Rus­sia. The num­ber of ready-made tem­plates is less than in the pre­vi­ous edi­tor. But they are all free.

In Grav­it Design­er, you can imme­di­ate­ly cre­ate your own unique design or use ready-made tem­plates. Illus­tra­tion: Eliza­ve­ta Chupiko­va, Photostore.Expert

You can add your own fonts, view the his­to­ry of changes, enable design man­age­ment on touch devices (you can zoom in with your fin­gers, call up the quick menu, etc.) only in the paid ver­sion.

The free ver­sion allows you to use built-in fonts, styles, and shapes. The edi­tor has many tools that will help you refine the fin­ished design or cre­ate your own from scratch. Illus­tra­tion: Eliza­ve­ta Chupiko­va, Photostore.Expert

What’s included in the free version

  • Abil­i­ty to cre­ate an unlim­it­ed num­ber of designs.
  • Ready-made tem­plates for dif­fer­ent pur­pos­es.
  • You can add com­ments to the project, high­light prob­lem areas — use­ful if sev­er­al peo­ple are work­ing on the project.
  • Pos­si­bil­i­ty to down­load the doc­u­ment in PDF, PNG, SVG, JPEG.
  • A very con­ve­nient fea­ture — when mov­ing (pho­tos, shapes), the dis­tance from the object to the edges of the can­vas, the near­est objects, appears on the screen.

Of the short­com­ings:

  • you can not add video and audio;
  • no data­base of pho­tos.

Suit­able for:

  • non-pro­fes­sion­als — sim­ple tem­plates, easy to edit, saves in the desired for­mat;
  • design­ers, SMM-spe­cial­ists — there are many tools for cre­at­ing ban­ners, design­ing posts.


Con­ve­nient edi­tor in Eng­lish with the max­i­mum amount of con­tent. The free ver­sion has:

  • more than a thou­sand free tem­plates of var­i­ous types (ban­ners, posters, pre­sen­ta­tions, sto­ries, etc.);
  • ani­ma­tion for dif­fer­ent ele­ments (more than 10 types);
  • stock icons.

Huge library of over 125 mil­lion images, icons and videos from Shut­ter­stock is includ­ed in the paid ver­sion. But the free one also has a lot of pho­tos that you can use for design.

Desygn­er is the edi­tor that is most sim­i­lar to Can­va. Illus­tra­tion: Eliza­ve­ta Chupiko­va, Photostore.Expert

You can down­load ready-made files in dif­fer­ent for­mats: PNG, JPEG, PDF, GIF. Plus edi­tor — shows the dis­tance from the ele­ment to the edges of the can­vas, oth­er ele­ments.

This is an ana­logue of Can­va, which works in Rus­sia, and it can be installed on your phone (iOS and Android).

The edi­tor has tools for chang­ing all design ele­ments. Illus­tra­tion: Eliza­ve­ta Chupiko­va, Photostore.Expert

Suit­able for pro­fes­sion­al and ama­teur use. There are almost all the tools that are need­ed to cre­ate visu­al con­tent. Excep­tion — there is no way to add audio.

Russian analogues of Canva

Next, we will talk about domes­tic ana­logues of Can­va. Since you can pay for a paid sub­scrip­tion in such ser­vices, we will men­tion its dif­fer­ences and advan­tages. The com­mon advan­tage of all domes­tic ser­vices is that they are in Russ­ian. There­fore, it is easy to deal with them all.


Online edi­tor, ana­logue of the Can­va web­site in Russ­ian for PC. Suit­able for indi­vid­ual users, small and large com­pa­nies. The free ver­sion includes:

  • unlim­it­ed num­ber of designs and down­loads;
  • free tem­plates and con­tent;
  • no water­mark on the pho­to.

Of the short­com­ings: videos can only be made up to 40 sec­onds at 480p res­o­lu­tion.

If you are not inter­est­ed in work­ing with video and using audio effects, then the free ver­sion of Supa is a great choice.

This Russ­ian ana­logue of Can­va is suit­able for pro­fes­sion­al and ama­teur use.

Hey teaser!

Free ana­logue of the Can­va appli­ca­tion in Russ­ian. The project is inter­est­ing, it is con­stant­ly being final­ized, new shapes, images, fonts are added. This is a mod­ern online graph­ic edi­tor that is suit­able even for those who have nev­er worked with design.

If you need inter­est­ing con­tent that you don’t want to work on for a long time - you can use ready-made tem­plates. You can edit them min­i­mal­ly: change the size of the can­vas, change the back­ground image (to an acces­si­ble one), change the font.

If you want to cre­ate some­thingyou can do every­thing from scratch. Of the minus­es — while there is no way to add audio and your own pic­tures. But the devel­op­ers active­ly com­mu­ni­cate with their audi­ence, lis­ten to the wish­es, and update the edi­tor. So in the near future it is quite pos­si­ble to com­pli­cate and improve the pro­gram.

This is how chang­ing your tem­plate in the Russ­ian ana­logue of the Can­va pro­gram looks like — “Hey, teas­er!”. Illus­tra­tion: Eliza­ve­ta Chupiko­va, Photostore.Expert

We hope that in the list of these ana­logues of the Can­va site you will find the right edi­tor that will meet all your require­ments.
