If you are anything like me; you need to do what seems like a bazillion graphics modifications. I know I struggled with knowing how to go about resizing photos quickly with canva, it always seems like you need a new graphic size for something. I have found that I personally prefer to use Canva (I’ve found most people are either securely team pic monkey or team canva.) for my graphics. I just like the interface on Canva the most so it’s the one I use. However, I about drove myself crazy creating multiple graphics of basically the same image in different formats for the different social media platforms. Then I found a trick…
Resizing Photos quickly with Canva
Log into your Canva Account
I typically create my graphic as a Pinterest sized graphic first. This is purely personal preference you could start anywhere.
Once you are happy with your graphic, click on Resize in the upper left corner.
Then check the boxes based on what size graphics you are trying to create in canva. I typically create a Social Media graphic and a Facebook post graphic when I am resizing items. Social Media graphic gives the graphic a square shape which can then be used on Instagram as well.
Next you are going to click on the little green wand that says “Abracadabra – Resize!”
Canva will then open new tabs for each items you picked.
Go to each tab, resize slightly if needed. Then make sure you give your graphic a unique name so you know why you created it. I like to name mine all the same with a – at the end and some sort of description. For example: Social Media Graphic – PIN, Social Media Graphic – Instagram, Social Media Graphic – FB.However you can do whatever you find easiest.
Make sure you visit each tab and SAVE your images.
Then like magic! You have all the graphics you need!!!!
