How to make a meme

  4. Once you’ve finished your meme, simply download or post to your social media page.

Choose from thousands of customizable templates

Share with the world in minutes

Whether you’re on your iPhone, iPad, Android or desktop, Canva’s meme generator has easy share buttons that allow you to instantly download (JPEG, PNG, PDF format available) or share your memes straight to social media.


Can I add my own photos to the meme generator?

Yes! It’s easy to add photos and images to Canva. Simply drag your image from your desktop to upload it to your image library. From there, drag the image into your meme template. Simple!

Does Canva leave watermarks on my meme?

If you use your own photos, or free images from the Canva image library, you won’t have any watermarks. Premium images are watermarked – if you pay a small fee (less than your daily coffee) these will be permanently removed.

Do I need to download Canva to create my meme?

Nope. Simply head on over to www.canva.com to start creating your class schedule. You don’t need to download Canva, just create an account and log in.

If you want to design on the go, download our iPhone or iPad app. They’re free to purchase from the Apple store.
