Once you’ve got a template to start with, you can begin personalizing your design. Upload your own photos or images by going to the Uploads tab and dragging and dropping files from your computer and into Canva. Once the images are saved on your uploads folder, they will remain there, ready to be used for your next designs.
At the same time, you can add icons, illustrations and even more photos by browsing through Canva’s amazing media library. Drag and drop new design elements into your workspace, move them to where they need to be, and resize by dragging on any of the image edges.
One of the easiest ways to create a theme or cohesive look for your scrapbook is to apply filters to your photos. Want to add a vintage feel to your design? Or how about a black and white themed scrapbook? Take advantage of Canva’s extensive photo editing features. Just click on your image and apply any of the pre-set filters or add photo effects like vignette, blur and x-process. You can even experiment with more settings like adjusting contrast, brightness, and tint.
Many hands make light work — and add to the fun! Get help from friends and family on your latest scrapbook project by sharing editing access with them. Just click on the share button, tick the box allowing them to edit your work, then send the generated link. Since Canva is stored on the cloud, you and your collaborators can access your design anytime, from anywhere, on any desktop, laptop, iPhone, iPad or Android device.
