How Do You Get Shapes in Canva?

Last updated on September 27, 2022 @ 6:54 pm

Shapes are one of the most versatile tools in Canva. With over 1 million built-in shapes to choose from, you can find the perfect one for your design, or upload your own for more personalization.

There are a few different ways to add shapes to your design in Canva:

1. Click the “Shapes” icon in the editor toolbar.

2. Select a shape from the menu that appears.

3. Use the search bar to find a specific shape.

4. Click and drag the shape onto your design canvas.

5. Resize and rotate the shape as needed.

6. Add color or texture by clicking on the “Fill” icon in the editor toolbar and selecting a color from the palette, or uploading your own image.

7. To add a border, click on the “Stroke” icon in the editor toolbar and select a color from the palette, or upload your own image.

8. Save your design and share it with the world!

PRO TIP: Shapes in Canva can be a great way to add interest and visual appeal to your designs. However, it’s important to be aware that not all shapes are created equal. Some shapes, like circles and triangles, are fairly easy to create. Others, like octagons and hexagons, can be a bit more challenging. And then there are some shapes, like stars and hearts, that can be downright difficult to create. So if you’re not careful, you could end up spending a lot of time trying to get the perfect shape for your design only to end up frustrated.
