You will have millions of photographic images, vectors, and illustrations at your disposal, or you can upload your file. You can edit your photos with predefined filters, or you will have advanced editing tools at your disposal. You will also have icons, shapes and elements, and hundreds of fonts at your disposal. Perfect for students to use both in class and in an online classroom to present the work materials attractively.
