How Do I Add a Vignette Effect in Canva?

Adding a vignette effect to your design can be a great way to give it some extra impact and make it stand out. Vignettes are a classic photo editing technique that adds an oval or circular frame to the edge of your image, giving it a softer, more subtle effect.

The simplest way to add this effect is with Canva, an online graphic design platform. Canva has a number of easy-to-use tools for creating stunning visuals quickly and easily.

To get started, open up the Canva website and log in to your account. From there, head over to the “Designs” tab and select “Create New Design.” You can select one of their layouts or upload your own image. Once you’ve selected or uploaded your image, click on the “Effects” tab in the top menu bar.

In the Effects panel, you will see several options including Blur, Brightness & Contrast, Color Balance and Vignette. Click on Vignette to open up its settings.

You will be able to adjust the size of the vignette using the slider bar on the right side of the window. You can also choose between oval or circular frames by clicking on either of those options at the bottom.

Finally, adjust the opacity and blur to get desired look for your vignette. When you are happy with how it looks, click “Apply” in order to save all of your changes.


Adding a vignette effect in Canva is a simple process that just takes a few minutes. All you need to do is open up Canva’s “Designs” tab and select “Create New Design” before heading over to the Effects panel and selecting Vignette from there. Then use the slider bar on the right side of window as well as adjusting opacity and blur until you are happy with how it looks before clicking apply in order save all changes made!
