With Canva being one of the most user-friendly graphic design tools available, you can accomplish many tasks smoothly and easily. One such task is creating mirrored text. This action can add a unique touch to your designs and make them more engaging and attractive. In this blog post, we will guide you through the process of mirroring text in Canva, step by step.
Step 1: Create or Open a Canva Project
The first thing you need to do is to create a new Canva project or open an existing one where you wish to add the mirrored text. You can do this by navigating to the Canva homepage and clicking on the ‘Create a design’ button located on the top-right corner of the page.
Step 2: Add Text to Your Design
Once you have your design open, select the ‘Text’ tab from the left panel. Here, you can choose from a variety of font styles and sizes. Simply click on the style you want, and it will be added to your design. You can then click on the text box to edit the content.
Step 3: Mirroring the Text
Unfortunately, as of now, Canva does not provide a direct option to mirror text. But don’t worry, there’s a workaround for this! Here’s how you do it:
A. Download the Text as an Image
First, you need to hide all other elements in your design except for the text you want to mirror. This can be done by clicking on the elements and pressing the delete button on your keyboard. You then have to download this text as an image. To do this, go to the top-right corner of the screen, click on the Download button, choose the file type as PNG or JPEG, and then click on Download again.
B. Upload the Image and Mirror It
After downloading the image, you need to upload it back to Canva. You can do this by going to the Uploads tab in the left panel and clicking on the Upload media button. Once uploaded, add the image to your design and click on the Flip button located on the top toolbar to mirror it.
Step 4: Finalize Your Design
Now that you’ve mirrored your text, you can unhide the other elements in your design and adjust the position and size of the text to suit your needs. You are now ready to download and use your design!
Although mirroring text in Canva requires a few extra steps, the process is still fairly simple. We hope this guide has been helpful and has made this task easier for you. Happy designing!
