How Do I Curve an Image in Canva?

Last updated on November 29, 2022 @ 7:28 pm

Curving an image in Canva is a great way to add some extra flair to your design. There are two ways to curve an image in Canva: using the “Warp” tool or by adding a “Border”.

To use the “Warp” tool, simply select the image you want to edit and then click on the “Warp” icon in the top toolbar. From there, you can use the slider to increase or decrease the amount of curve applied to your image.

Curving a text in Canva is one of the creative ways to add some spice to your design. As a designer, you are not limited to having your text as simple, boring, and straight texts.

Curves are important for their fun effect as it attracts attention and impacts your audience.

Here are the easy and simple steps you could follow to make stunning curved texts:

1. Select the desired text you want the curved effect to be applied then click the “Effects” tab.

Select the Effects Tab in Canva to add the curved effect text.

2.  Search the Curve Effect in the left panel and click it.

Choose the Curve Text Effect under Shape Category

3. After clicking it, your text will be curved automatically. You can adjust the curved effect in your text by playing with the curve slider beneath. A positive value creates an upside-down curve while a negative value creates a U curve.

4. That’s all you need to create a curve effect in your text!

Now, It is up to you how you can utilize this effect in your design. Below is just a simple design that utilizes the curve effect in Canva.

PRO TIP: If you are not careful, curving an image in Canva can result in distortion. Make sure to check your image after you have applied the curve to make sure it looks the way you want it to.
