How Do You Put a Border Around a Picture in Canva?

Last updated on April 13, 2023 @ 6:57 am

When you are creating a design in Canva, you may want to add a border around your image. This can be done in a few simple steps:

1. First, go to the Elements tab and type in “border frame” in the search tab, then press “Enter” on your keyboard.

2. Next, scroll down to the Frames section and click on the “See all” link beside it.

3. The Frames menu with several border options to choose from will then be shown.

4. Select the one that you would like to be the border of your image from the Frames menu and drag it to your canvas.

5. Finally, click on the image and drag it into the added frame.

6. Your image will then be absorbed by the frame and a border will be automatically applied to your image depending on the type of frame you selected.

PRO TIP: If you are planning to put a border around a picture in Canva, be aware that there is a potential for the image to become distorted. This is because the border may not be of an even width all the way around the picture. To avoid this, make sure that the width of the border is the same all the way around, or else the image may become skewed.
