Change Canva Size

Canva is a versatile design tool that offers various sizes for different projects, including social media posts, business cards, and presentations. However, there might be instances when you need to adjust the Canva size to meet your specific needs. This blog post will guide you through the process of changing the Canva size in a few simple steps.

Step 1: Open Canva

First, open Canva on your browser. Log in to your account, or if you don’t have an account, you can create one easily. You can also use Canva without logging in, but you will not be able to save your projects.

Step 2: Start a New Design

Click on the Create a design button at the top right corner of your screen. You will see a dropdown menu with various design types. You can choose any of these options, but for the purpose of this tutorial, we will use the Custom dimensions option.

Step 3: Set Custom Dimensions

Click on the Custom dimensions option at the bottom of the dropdown menu. You will see two boxes: one for width and one for height. Enter your desired dimensions in pixels, millimeters, or inches. Then, click on the Create new design button.

// Example of setting custom dimensions
Enter 1080 in the width box
Enter 720 in the height box

Step 4: Resize Existing Design

If you’ve already started a design and want to change its size, you can do this by clicking on the Resize button on the toolbar at the top of your screen. Enter your new dimensions, and Canva will automatically adjust your design to the new size. Keep in mind that some elements may need to be rearranged to fit the new size.

Click on "Resize"
Enter 1920 in the width box
Enter 1080 in the height box


Changing the Canva size is a straightforward process, whether you’re starting a new design or resizing an existing one. You have the freedom to set the dimensions according to your project requirements. Now that you know how to change the Canva size, you can create designs that perfectly fit any purpose.
