How Do I Crop a Circle Shape in Canva?

Last updated on December 3, 2022 @ 9:28 pm

There are many ways to crop a circle shape in Canva, but the most common and easiest method is to use the Ellipse Tool. With the Ellipse Tool selected, simply click and drag your mouse cursor around the area you want to crop.

The resulting shape will be a perfect circle. You can also use the Circle Frame tool to crop a circle, but this method is not as accurate.

If you need to crop a circle with more precision, you can use the Pencil Tool. First, select the Pencil Tool from the toolbar.

Then, click around the area you want to crop, making sure to click evenly spaced points. Once you’ve clicked around the entire area, right-click and select “Close Path” from the menu that appears. This will create a smooth, curved line that you can then crop with the Ellipse Tool.

PRO TIP: If you are not careful when cropping a circle shape in Canva, you may end up with an oval or an irregular shaped circle. Be sure to use the cropping tool properly and to keep an eye on the circle as you crop it, in order to avoid this mistake.

Once you’ve cropped your image into a circle, you can add text using the Text Tool. Simply click on the “T” icon in the toolbar and then click and drag your mouse cursor to create a text box. Type your text into the box and then use the formatting options to change the font, color, and size of your text.

You can also style text using HTML tags. For example, if you want your text to be bold, you would use the < b > tag.
To underline your text, you would use the < u > tag. And to put your text in a paragraph, you would use the < p > tag.

    To crop a circle shape in Canva:
    1) Use the Ellipse Tool and click+drag mouse cursor around desired area
    2) For more precision, use Pencil Tool to click around area
    3) Right-click and select “Close Path”
    4) Crop with Ellipse Tool
