We are talking about the shape crop. Sometimes, instead of adding a simple square or a rectangular image, we want it in a different shape. Suppose you are creating a card for your friend in Canva and you want to crop an image in heart shape as such Canva doesn’t provide a direct option for that. However, there is a workaround.

Whether it’s a heart, circle, or any other shape, here you will get to know how to crop images into shapes in Canva. Let’s start with the basic crop first.

Basic Crop in Canva

The method is different for the website and mobile apps. We have covered both.

There are two ways to crop the image. The method varies if you are replacing an existing image or adding a new image.

Crop a New Image

When you add a new image to your template, click on it once. Then, click on the Crop option present at the best.

Your image will be cropped. Interestingly, if you press on the Crop option again, you will see the original image too. Canva saves the original image, and you can go back to it anytime.

Replace an Existing Image

If you choose an existing template and want to replace its image, Canva will automatically crop your image to fit the template design. However, if you aren’t satisfied with what Canva has chosen, simply click on the Crop option. Then drag the image to crop it according to the requirement. Hit the Done button to save the changes.

Mobile Apps

There are two methods to do it on mobile apps (Android and iOS).

1. Use Search to Find a Frame

Canva doesn’t provide a proper option for frames in mobile apps. You do get other things such as illustrations, text, image, and even shapes. But the shapes are different from frames. So, we will be using a workaround.

Step 1: Open a blank or an existing template.

Step 2: Tap on the add icon at the bottom-right corner.

Round Is a Shape

You can use the circular crop feature to generate profile pictures for various social networks. If you have used an existing template, simply delete all other elements except your shape. That way your template will only have the shape on a white background. You can also use other shapes to design creative graphics.
