How To Resize A Design On Canva

Do you want to use one of your designs for your different social media accounts? Use the resize option to create a design that fits the recommended size for uploading on a specific platform. Follow our guide, and we’ll show you how to resize designs in Canva.


You can use Canva to create designs you can post on different social media websites like Instagram or Facebook. These apps have different image size recommendations to avoid skewing or change in quality.

As such, you need to resize your designs on Canva to make sure that you can display your creations properly in different social media apps. Thankfully, there’s a resize option for premium subscription users to adjust the size of their designs.

With the help of the resize feature, there’s no need to copy your design elements to a different-sized design.

Here’s our guide about resizing on Canva.

How to resize one of your designs in Canva

If you want to post your designs on different social media platforms, you can resize them to match the recommended post size for the specific app. As long as you have a Pro, Teams, or Education subscription, you can use the resize option on all your designs on Canva.

You can resize designs whether you’re using Canva on your phone or computer. Check our tutorials below, and we’ll teach you how to use the feature on your account.

On your computer:

  1. Launch the Canva desktop app or visit their web client and sign in to your account.
  2. Open one of the designs that you want to resize.
  3. Click the “Resize” option on the upper left side of the app.

  4. Choose from the available size presets or set a custom size for your design.

  5. Choose whether to resize the current design or create a copy.

If you choose to use a custom size, the minimum dimension you can use is 40 x 40 px, while the maximum is 8000 x 3125 px. If you see that the Custom size fields appear red, it means that the app doesn’t support the value you entered.

On your phone:

  1. Launch the Canva mobile app and sign in to your account.
  2. Open the design you want to resize.
  3. Tap More options (three dots icon) on the upper right side of the design editor.

  4. Once the menu appears, select the Resize option.

  5. Choose from the available size presets or enter the custom size dimensions you want for your design.

  6. Tap Resize to apply the changes to your current design or “Copy & resize” to create a new resized design.

That’s how you resize designs on Canva. If you don’t have a subscription on your account, you can’t use the resize option whether you’re using the web, mobile, or desktop app.

Can you resize specific pages on your design on Canva?

Unfortunately, there’s no option to resize certain pages within a design on Canva. All pages within a design have one size.

If you want to group designs with different sizes together, you can add them to a folder on the app.

To wrap it all up

Now that you know how to resize designs on Canva, you can create copies of your design with appropriate sizes for different social media platforms. As such, there’s no need to create new designs if you’re planning to use the same content for them.
