There are 2 common issues when using these online editors :
They don’t allow local storage of your designs. Thus when the site goes down you need to wait.
We cannot download the image files in formats like in Photoshop/ Adobe. So if any other person needs to edit these designs, they must have an account on the same site.
But keeping such issues at bay, these websites surely provide a good start to your designs rather than doing it from scratch.
Once your design is ready, you can use it directly for your ads.
However, I recommend you to first create a Facebook ad mockup, preview it and share it with your team or clients.
This helps you get
An idea of what the actual ad will look like in various placements,
Insight into what would and wouldn’t work for advertising purposes, and
Reviews or edits from your team / clients.
Once finalized, you can proceed with publishing the ad.
Facebook Creative Hub lets you design these ad mockups.
