Resize and crop your photo

note: All stock photos in Canva are high resolution, so you’ll be able to resize them as large or as small as you need. The image size will appear once you drag the photo while resizing.

Resize your photo

You can resize photos while keeping the same dimensions or resize it freehand if you wish to resize in any way you want.

Proportional – Proportional resizing lets you keep the same dimensions or ratio of a photo no matter how much you enlarge or reduce its size.

  1. Click on the photo you want to resize.
  2. Drag the circle resize handles on the photo’s corners.
  3. Release the handle once you reach the desired size.

Freehand – Resizing freehand lets you resize the photo freely.

  1. Click on the photo you want to resize.
  2. Hold down Shift on your keyboard while dragging any of the photo’s circle resize handles.
  3. Release the handle once you reach the desired size.

Crop your photo

You can easily crop your photos using the Crop button or simply by doing a quick crop.

To crop your photos using the Crop button:

  1. Click on the photo and click Crop from the toolbar. You can also double-click on the photo.
  2. Hold and drag any of the photo’s corners to adjust the image.
  3. Drag the photo around to set a placement.
  4. You can also drag the inner corners for more specific cropping.
  5. Click ✔️Done on the editor toolbar to complete the action.


To do a quick crop:

  1. Click on the photo.
  2. Hold and drag any of the photo’s flat resize handles by moving it inwards or outwards to adjust the size.
  3. Release the edges once you reach the desired size.
