note: Canva currently supports dimensions within 40 px to 5000 px and their equivalents to inches, cm and mm. Creating designs smaller than 40 px or bigger than 5000 px will result to an error warning.

Using custom dimensions in Canva standard


For Canva standard users, existing designs cannot be resized. Let’s say you wish to create an infographic in landscape orientation, you can do so with the Use custom dimensions option to start with.

note: For designs in landscape orientation, please ensure the width of your design is greater than the height.

To do so:

  1. From the Create a design page, click on the Use custom dimensions button.
  2. Enter the page dimensions of your design and choose the correct unit of measurements.
  3. Click Design!
