How To Collage In Canva

If you have ever needed to create a design, whether it be a flyer or a resume, you are likely familiar with Canva, an online design and publishing platform. In this guide, we will be focusing on one specific feature of Canva: the collage maker. Let’s get started!

Step 1: Create a New Design

Navigate to the Canva website and log in to your account. If you don’t have an account yet, you can easily sign up for free. Once you’re logged in, click on the “Create a Design” button on the top right corner.

Step 2: Choose Your Design Type

After you’ve clicked the “Create a Design” button, a drop-down menu will appear with various design types. For collages, I recommend choosing the “Custom dimensions” option and entering your preferred dimensions.

Step 3: Use a Template or Start from Scratch

Once you’ve set your dimensions, you can either use a pre-existing collage template or create your collage from scratch. To use a template, just click on the “Templates” tab on the left panel and choose a design that suits your needs.

Step 4: Add Your Images

If you’re starting from scratch, click on the “Elements” tab on the left panel, and choose “Grids”. You can select any grid that fits your design vision. Now, it’s time to add your images. Click on the “Uploads” tab on the left panel, then click on “Upload an image or video”. Here, you can choose images from your computer to add to your collage.

Step 5: Finalize Your Collage

Simply drag your images from the “Uploads” tab to your chosen grid. Resize and rearrange them as you please. You can add text, effects, and other elements to your collage as well, making it truly unique.

Step 6: Save and Download

When you’re happy with your collage, click on the “Download” button on the top right corner. Choose your preferred file type and quality, then click the “Download” button again.

And that’s it! You’ve just created a beautiful and unique collage using Canva. Remember, practice makes perfect. Keep experimenting with different designs, and you’ll be a Canva pro in no time!
