How to make a photo video

  1. Launch Canva
    Open Canva and type “picture videos” or “photo videos” on the search bar. Choose which format you’re creating your video for so you’ll find the template with the right aspect ratio.
  2. Start inspired
    Narrow down your search with ready-made templates by category, style, theme. If you have a concept in mind, you can start with a blank template.
  3. Customize your template
    Make the template yours. Browse our library for logos, colors, fonts, and other graphic elements to make your video dynamic. Use our font combinations and color palette generator. Upload your own assets and drag-and-drop them onto your template with ease.
  4. Add a soundtrack, transitions, and effects
    Add audio to your picture video to make it even more moving. Choose from prelicensed stock audio or upload your own. Apply transitions and effects to each page or a single element.
  5. Share and post with ease
    Preview your photo video. Then download it in high-quality mp4. Post it on your social media, blog, or website straight from our dashboard.
