Adding and removing frames

Frames allow you to crop photos into a particular shape or form — sometimes even with a border depending on the design you choose.

Adding frames

To add a frame to your design:

  1. Open the Elements tab in the object panel.
  2. Click on the Frames folder found in the first row of folders.
  3. Scroll through the selection of available frames and click on what you’d like to add to your design. This will appear instantly on your canvas.

Removing frames

If you changed your mind on using frames, you can easily delete them from your design. To remove frames:

  1. Click on the frame you wish to delete.
  2. Click on the Trash icon from the toolbar. The frame will instantly be deleted.

Adding Canva images to a frame

To add a Canva image to the frame:

  1. Select the frame.
  2. Open the Elements tab in the object panel.
  3. Click on the Free Photos folder found in the first row of folders.
  4. Type in a keyword in the search bar or scroll through the selection of available photos.
  5. Select a photo you’d like to use and drag it into the frame.

Adding an uploaded image to a frame

To add an uploaded image to the frame:

  1. Select the frame.
  2. Open the Uploads tab in the object panel.
  3. Click on the folder that has the uploaded photo you’d like to use.
  4. Select the photo and drag it into the frame.

Customizing colors in frames

Frames that have shapes or borders can have its colors customized.

To change the color of a frame:

  1. Select the frame.
  2. Click on the color tile found on the left side of the toolbar.
  3. Click the + button and use the color picker to select a color or choose a color from one of the available color palettes.
