How Do I Add a Frame to a Photo in Canva?

Adding frames to your photos in Canva is a great way to make your images stand out and draw attention. Frames can be used to give your photos a unique look, or they can be used to highlight certain details or areas of the photo. Canva makes it easy to add frames to any photo, whether you’re using the desktop version or the mobile app. Here’s how you can add frames to your photos in Canva.

Step 1:

The first step is to open up the photo that you want to add a frame to in Canva. You can either upload your own image, or choose one from Canva’s library of free images. Once you have your image open, click on the “Frames” tab at the top of the page.

This will open up a selection of frames that you can choose from.

Step 2:

Once you have opened up the “Frames” tab, scroll through the selection of frames until you find one that fits with your image. You can also customize the color and size of the frame if necessary. When you are satisfied with your selection, click on it and it will be applied to your image.

Step 3:

Once you have added a frame to your image, you will be able to adjust it further if necessary. You can resize and rotate it as needed, as well as move it around on the page so that it appears exactly where you want it on the image.

Step 4:

When you are satisfied with how your frame looks on your photo, click “Done” at the top of the page and then save your image as normal. Your frame should now appear around your photo when viewed in Canva or exported elsewhere.


Adding a frame to a photo in Canva is an easy process that only takes a few steps. All you need to do is open up an image in Canva, choose a frame from the “Frames” tab, customize it as needed, and then save it once finished. With these steps complete, you will have successfully added a frame to any photo in Canva.
