Speechify is absolutely brilliant. Growing up with dyslexia this would have made a big difference. I’m so glad to have it today.

Shutterstock Editor reviews

Working with shutterstock is amazing. First the images come in different resolutions and formats that it really makes you life A lot easier. Also the resolution is amazing. Honestly shutterstock is the best place for images

- Patricia C. Account Manager

Shutterstock customer has responsibly priced for content and the categorization of the assets and other production materials is easy to source.

- Jermaine R. UX Designer

Shutterstock editor is only available to desktop users and some laptops, not very convenient. If you don't have a Shutterstock subscription the watermarks will remain on any Shutterstock photos you use in the editor. Some templates require a subscription as well. The faunt and icon libraries are okay but not the best. There's no option to search for icons with keywords or tags. The editing dashboard is different than what I'm used to so it took some time to get used to.

Opal reviews

I find the simplicity of the interface very user-friendly. Esthetically pleasing! Unlike many content management systems, there are not overused steps for a simple action. Customizable workflows & tracking capabilities are extremely useful. I also like that the platform easily integrates with other popular tools.

- Angelic C. Project Manager

The visuals & integrated content/copy layout are super user friendly & helpful.

- Madelaine W. Copywriter

The customer support is very slow and they can add more integrations to the software.

Pros & cons

Shutterstock Editor

An easy to use drag and drop editor that lets you create designs from facebook posts to catalogues and greeting cards
The Shutterstock Editor is a powerful tool that you can use if you have a shutterstock image plan.Shutterstock editor allows shadow enhancement which is often left out in other free editors.

It's just a snapshot and an incapable choice.You can't upload your own images to be used in the editor, you need to rely on the Shutterstock library
The template library is just getting started, right now it feels a little limited, but it keeps growing every day adding new templates.


One of my favorite features is the ability to create shareable Opal content presentations in just a few clicks
Opal employs wonderful humans
The questions on features and benefits and opportunities are far less important when dealing with wonderful humans
I really enjoy the mockups that can be made
The fact that some posts look like they will when they're posted is critical to our work
The ability to have approval paths ensures that the proper eyes are seeing out content and making sure everytihng is perfect before it gets published."

Poorly designed and difficult to use
Simple tasks are made complex by poor navigation
Presentations are sometimes hard to navigate and if you do not have an account, you cannot leave feedback within the presentation
Multi-day campaigns can be hard to track
Organization using the platform must enforce naming conventions for content or calendar view can look very confusing and unorganized quickly
I dislike that everything is based around one timeline."
