I think Canva is a great graphics program, it is SUPER easy to use! Although I am a rabid(pun intended) of Inkscape, for people that are less graphically inlclined CANVA is a wonderful workaround.
Especially the proprietary photos that are only $1, yes ONE dollar! I chatted with a CANVA representative and he said YES, if you use the KINDLE cover template in canva, you can indeed use the $1 pics for your cover and publish in amazon, copyrights and all.
That means for you Romance authors out there, you have hundreds of naked torsos to choose from for your covers! Sure you can get them in $1 pic club etc. too, but here you don't have to leave the tool. You can really whip up a cover real quick with a lot of skin for that romance cover!
I'm a real proponent of Inkscape and Gimp, and GRAPHIC eye-catching covers. But some authors (especially Romance) just have to have a photo. I think CANVA solves this problem for a lot of situations now. Also check out their own demonstration video, type in "Lion" for example and see all of the high quality pics!
Notice that the downloaded .jpg is 1410px width, so this will meet KDP's requirements just right.
