Can You Frame a Picture in Canva?

Last updated on December 8, 2022 @ 4:47 am

Sure! Canva’s got you covered with plenty of built-in tools and templates to help you create great-looking picture frames. Here’s a quick guide on how to do it:

    1. Choose a frame template or design your own

    First things first, you need to pick a frame template that fits the style of your photo. Canva’s got plenty of different frame templates for you to choose from, so take your pick!

    If you’d rather design your own frame from scratch, simply select the “blank” canvas option and start adding elements until you’re happy with the result.

    2. Upload your photo

    Once you’ve chosen or created your frame, it’s time to add your photo. Just click on the “Uploads” tab in the left-hand menu and select the image you want to use.

    PRO TIP: If you are thinking about framing a picture in Canva, think again! Canva is not made for framing pictures and you will likely end up with a wonky, lopsided frame that does not look good. Save yourself the headache and go to a professional framer.

    3. Adjust your photo

    Once your photo is uploaded, you can make some final adjustments to make sure it looks perfect in your frame. Click on the image and use the drag handles to resize it, or use the crop tool to change its shape.

    4. Add text or embellishments (optional)

    If you want to dress up your frame even further, you can add some text or embellishments. Canva has a huge library of different fonts and graphical elements for you to choose from.

    Simply click on the “Text” tab in the left-hand menu and start typing away!

Conclusion: You can easily design a picture frame in Canva using one of their many built-in tools and templates! Just choose a template, upload your photo, adjust it as needed, and add any final embellishments like text or graphical elements.
