Stencil it's a great tool for image creation in a fast and effective way. I love it because it's a very simple but powerful tool, and it permits me to get good results, even if I'm not a graphic designer!

In additions, it has a lot of pre-defined templates, images and icons to choose from, to use in your creation. Review collected by and hosted on G2.com.

What do you like best?

First off you can save multiple brands, you can upload your own fonts, you can save and resize your workspace sizes and you can save transparent backgrounds without any issues. I love the fact stencil has a chrome extension that allows me to open up the designer over pretty much any page that I may be working on and create graphics on the fly. I also love that I can highlight text on the internet and right click to access a stencil extension that takes me into the application instantly with the text I highlighted already pasted inside ready to be made into whatever graphic I need. Stencil has a massive amount of photos and icons built into the application which is extremely helpful. I use stencil everyday because it makes design so easy. It has most of the features I need for a quick cloud-based design program. Review collected by and hosted on G2.com.

What do you dislike?

One of the main things I find myself reaching for to no avail sometimes I am using the app is the ability to group elements so I can move multiple elements at once. Also they have a lot of templates but they're are not that great. I always start from scratch. Review collected by and hosted on G2.com.

What do you like best?

Stencil makes it easy for our marketing team to create engaging posts in minutes. With no need to navigate to an additional appliation or web app, Stencil.app lives directly on every web page I visit giving me direct access whenever I need it. Review collected by and hosted on G2.com.

Stencil is definitely an application built for everyone. As someone who is familiar and works with high-end photo manipulation tools. I find myself reaching for traditional keyboard shortcuts which at times has me digressing in my workflow rather than progressing in my workflow. Review collected by and hosted on G2.com.

What do you like best?

Stencil is very easy to use and includes templates for several social media services. This allows you to optimize images for each platform and generate multiple images quickly. The built-in icons and stock photos are also extremely handy. Review collected by and hosted on G2.com.

What do you dislike?

I wish there were more support for creating image collages a la PicMonkey. I've found that turning on the Facebook Ad grid can help but a drag and drop tool with a template would be great. Review collected by and hosted on G2.com.

Recommendations to others considering the product:

Even if you don't see Stencial as a one-and-only tool, it can be helpful when used in conjunction with Canva, PicMonkey, Adobe Spark or other solutions. Review collected by and hosted on G2.com.

What problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

I use Stencil to create Pinterest images as well as other social media platforms. Although I sometimes combine tools to get the results I want, Stencil is likely my most-used service. Review collected by and hosted on G2.com.

What do you like best?

If you ever felt you need the speed to start creating fast and well-crafted images for social channels, Stencil may well be it. The user interface is intuitive and ux-friendly. No messy confusion on where to find what. Selecting the font type and images is a breeze. Use their preset template as a starting guide. Stencil comes with a huge library of free stock images and icons. In fact the icon library is not only huge, it comes organized with the related set icons. Oh, they just launched their wordpress plugin to work along within the WP media library! Sweet. And for chrome users, be sure to take advantage of their extension to quickly pull out Stencil's design interface and start designing efficiently. Review collected by and hosted on G2.com.

What do you dislike?

The design Templates variety seem a little out-dated but then again, visual design is subjective. Nothing much to complain about. Review collected by and hosted on G2.com.

Recommendations to others considering the product:

If you're managing social media brand accounts for clients, Stencil may be a good fit. Review collected by and hosted on G2.com.

What problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?
