To overlay your camera in Canva, first make sure that you have the latest version of the app. Then, open the app and sign in.

Next, tap the ‘Create a design’ button, and select ‘Use custom dimensions’. Enter the desired width and height for your design, then tap ‘Create design’.

Once your design is open, tap the ‘Elements’ tab, then select ‘Photos’. You will see a list of options for adding photos to your design. Tap the ‘Uploads’ option, then select ‘Camera’.

You will see a preview of your camera feed. Tap the ‘Capture’ button to take a photo, or tap the ‘Record’ button to start recording a video. Once you’re done, tap the ‘Done’ button.

PRO TIP: If you are not careful, it is easy to accidentally overlay your camera in Canva. This can result in a distorted or blurry image.

Your photo or video will be added to your design. You can move it around or resize it just like any other element. To add text or another element on top of your photo or video, simply tap the ‘Elements’ tab and select the desired item.


Overlaying your camera in Canva is a great way to add personal touches to your designs. Whether you’re adding a photo or video, it’s easy to do and only takes a few seconds. With just a few taps, you can add unique elements that will make your designs stand out.
