Create professional designs on a budget

Canva is a free drag-and-drop design tool that makes it easy to design Facebook covers without any graphic design experience. Our library of professional layouts is free to use as many times as you like. Simply choose your favourite design and change the images, fonts, and colors to your liking.

Never worry about image dimensions

Between social networks like Facebook, Twitter, and Pinterest, it’s hard to keep up with the correct image dimensions for each network. All of our layouts are pre-formatted to the optimum size for each network, meaning your Facebook cover will always look its best without any tricky image formatting.

Create your Facebook cover in a team

Sometimes, the best creativity comes from working in a team. Create a Facebook cover in a team by simply inviting fellow collaborators via email. Then you can start designing together instantly in real-time.

As well as uploading your own images for free, Canva gives you access to over 1 million premium images, graphics, and illustrations. Many of these images are free, while the rest are all priced at just $1. This allows you to create professional graphics at a fraction of the cost of hiring a designer.
