How to use Canva’s Magic Resize

You really do have a touch of magic at your fingertips with Canva’s Magic Resize. I used the original design on Instagram and resized it after I made the video to a custom size for this blog post header! I did need to add another image to keep my design balanced though.

Here’s how to use Canva Magic Resize

Canva Magic Resize (only available in Pro) is a useful feature that allows you to quickly and easily resize your designs for different platforms without having to recreate your design from scratch. This means you can create a collection of consistent looking visuals over all of your channels. Here’s how to do it.

  1. Open a blank design and create a compelling visual to sell your brand.
  2. When you are happy with the result, click on the ‘Resize’ button which is located at the top left corner of your screen.
  3. A drop-down menu will appear, which provides you with different options to resize your design for various social media platforms. There is also a custom size option which allows you to create a post for any other dimensions that you may need.
  4. Select the platform(s) that you want to resize your design for and click on the create button. Canva will open each of your resized items in a different tab.
  5. Your posts won’t be perfectly resized so you will have to edit each one as necessary to make it look perfect, but this process will still save you a huge amount of time and ensure brand consistency.
  6. Once you are happy with your designs, you can download them or (with a pro account) share them directly from Canva.

I hope that was helpful.
