Step by Step

 

 

1. Open Canva and create a New Project. There are two options:
  • If you press the “Poster” button, Canva will create a new document with default dimensions (42 x 59,4 cm).
  • You can set the dimensions yourself. Press “custom dimensions” and set the width and height.
2. Open your new canvas and press “Uploads” on the left toolbar.
 
3. Click “Upload an image or video.” Browse your device until you find the file you want. Select and upload.
 
4. Add the background to your Canvas.
 
5. Apply a bit of transparency so the poster text will have better contrast.
 
6. Click “Text” on the left toolbar. Press “Add a Headline.” Write your message in the text box.
 
7. You can change the font, the text size, the alignment, and the kerning.
 
And there is your poster! Click “Download” to save it to your device.
