Canva’s Grids feature is a powerful tool that allows you to organize and layout your designs in a structured and visually appealing way. The Grids feature enables you to easily create a grid layout of your design, making it easy to add and arrange images, videos, and other design elements.
In this tutorial, let us discover the steps to add and customize the grids in Canva.
Step 1: Open a blank page on Canva or a previous design to which you wish to add a grid. We used a blank design page with a background color for this tutorial.
Step 2: Click on “Elements” in the left side editor panel and search “Grids” in the search bar. You see a section called ” Grids” in the search results, as shown in the below screenshot. You need to click on the “See all” option.
Step 3: In the left side panel, you see various grids available in Canva to use. Canva offers several Grid layout options that you can choose from, including Grids with two to five columns or rows and Grids with a combination of both columns and rows. You can also choose to have different sized grid boxes or have them all the same size.
Step 4: Click a grid that matches your requirement to apply it to your design.
Step 5: If you want to resize the Grid, select the Grid, and click on the white circle handles available at the corners of the Grid. Now move the circular handle to reduce or increase the size of the Grid.
Step 6: Once you have selected your preferred Grid layout and adjusted the grid size, you can then start adding your images, videos, or other design elements, including color fill.
Canva offers a vast collection of stock photos, illustrations, videos, and other design elements that you can choose from or upload your own media files to use. To add an image or video to the Grid, drag and drop the media file onto the grid box you want it to occupy.
Step 7: If you wish to resize or reposition the image or video added to the Grid, just double click on that particular Grid and make the adjustments.
Step 8: Lastly, if you want to increase or decrease the spacing between the grids, click the “Spacing” button on the top toolbar after selecting the Grid and move the slider as per your spacing requirement.
Using the Grids feature in Canva can save you time and effort when creating designs that require a structured layout.
Also, you can ensure that your design elements are aligned and properly arranged, creating a professional and visually appealing design.
In conclusion, Canva’s Grids feature is a versatile tool that can help you create stunning designs quickly and efficiently.
