How Do I Add a Vignette in Canva?

If you’re looking for a creative way to add a special touch to your designs, then look no further than Canva’s vignette feature. Vignettes are a classic way to add depth and texture to any design, and Canva makes it easy to do so.

A vignette is a soft-edged, feathered darkening of the edges of an image or design element. It can give an image or design an interesting frame as well as add focus and emphasis. By adding one in Canva, you can draw attention to the center of your design, creating a subtle but powerful effect.

To get started with adding a vignette in Canva, open your design file and click on the “Effects” button in the top toolbar. This will open up the Effects panel where you can choose from several options including Vignette. Click on “Vignette” and you will see several different options for adjusting your vignette’s intensity, size, shape, and color.

The intensity slider lets you adjust how dark or light the edges of your vignette should be. You can also adjust the size of your vignette by dragging the slider from left to right; this will make it bigger or smaller depending on where you set it.

The shape slider lets you adjust how round or square the edges of your vignette should be; simply drag it up or down to change its shape. Finally, you can also adjust the color of your vignette by selecting from one of Canva’s preset colors or creating a custom color using RGB values or HEX codes.

After making all your adjustments to your vignette, click “Apply” at the bottom right corner of the Effects panel and voila! Your design now has a beautiful vignette added to it that will enhance its overall look and feel. You can always go back into Effects panel anytime if you want to make further adjustments or remove it altogether.
