How Do I Add a Color Overlay in Canva?

Last updated on December 7, 2022 @ 2:47 am

Adding a color overlay in Canva is easy!

First, open Canva and sign in. Then, click on the “Create a design” button.

Next, select “File” from the top left corner, and then click on “New design. ”

PRO TIP: If you are not familiar with Canva, we strongly recommend that you seek help from a qualified professional before attempting to add a color overlay. This tool can be tricky to use, and if not used correctly, can result in your design looking unprofessional.

Once your design is open, click on the “Background” tab from the left sidebar. Here, you will see the option to “Add a color.” Click on this, and then select the color you want to add to your design.

Now, your design will have a color overlay! To style text using HTML tags, simply select the text you want to style and then click on the “<>” icon from the top toolbar.

This will open up the HTML editor. From here, you can use < p >, < b >, and < u > tags to style your text.

That’s all there is to it! Adding a color overlay in Canva is quick and easy.
