How to make a reel

Create a reel

Open Canva and search “Reels” to make IG reels.

Begin with a free, customizable reel template. Narrow down the designs according to theme, style, or color using our set filters. Then, click your chosen reel layout. You can also start with a blank canvas.

Upload the videos and photos you want to include in your Instagram reel. Then, drag and drop the clips and images onto the video timeline. Alternatively, you can explore our stock photos and stock footage.

Polish your Instagram reel with our powerful reel editor. Trim each video, rotate each clip, or add quick transitions. Add tracks from our free music library, then use Beat Sync to automatically sync the video to the beat. Personalize it further by adding text, icons, animations, and other graphic design elements from our media library.

Download your Instagram reel in high-resolution MP4 video and post it on your Reels tab or Stories. Or share it directly from Canva. If you’re on Pro, you can queue it using our handy content calendar.

Go beyond Instagram tools

Instagram has tools and features for users to create stunning reels, but if you’re looking to stand out, head over to Canva’s free Instagram Reels creator. Our reel editor lets you create more elaborate-looking reels without complex video editing software. You have free, editable reel templates and ready-made graphic design elements to bring your reels to the next level.

Looking for a specific music track? No worries. Pro and Education users in the US, UK, Canada, Australia, and other territories (see the complete list of territories here(opens in a new tab or window)) can add trending tracks and iconic hits to their videos by accessing our popular music library. Now, you can upload your personal reel to your social media profiles or use it as an educational video piece—with the perfect background music!

Take things further by automatically syncing your video to a beat with Beat Sync(opens in a new tab or window) to highlight peak moments and engage your audience. You’ll also love features that automate manual editing tasks, like speeding up(opens in a new tab or window) or slowing down videos(opens in a new tab or window), to make your content more accessible to an array of people.

Create reels in no time

Juggling several things at the same time? It’s challenging to keep track of all the content you publish for yourself, your clients, or your brand. But with our Instagram reel maker, you can bet that, even in a rush, you can still produce multiple high-quality reels.

Make IG reels on the go with our mobile app or a laptop. Get your entire team onboard, too. Give them access to your projects, collaborate on the reels, and edit them in real time. With ready-made templates, music tracks, animations, and a media library of illustrations, graphics, and clips, you can easily make reels in minutes.

Cross-post across platforms

Every social media platform has its own take on reels. Reach a wider audience by cross-posting your work on other social media platforms, like TikTok and YouTube Shorts.

Upload your reels as is or tweak them on Canva's AI video editor(opens in a new tab or window) on our free reel creator before cross-posting. Rest assured that all elements you’ve added will remain on your layout, even if you change the dimension, scale, or file format. Additionally, you have the option to download the reel and post it manually or share it on several platforms directly from Canva's reel editor.


You can also make custom animations with Create an Animation and transform your reel from a simple video into a dynamic, engaging content piece. Once you’re finished editing, you have a stunning reel ready for downloading and sharing.

Compile photos into a reel using our free reel editor. Either upload images from your gallery or choose from our free stock photos. Then, add or drag and drop them onto the video timeline. Don’t forget to add music and dynamic elements for a video-like feel before downloading.

The quickest way to make a reel from your long-form videos or IG stories is by uploading them to our reel maker. Once uploaded, either crop the clips or split them before merging them. Instagram Reels has a video length limit of 15 to 90 seconds, so make sure to select the best parts of your video clips.
