How Do I Change the Infographic Size in Canva?

When creating an infographic, you want it to look perfect. You want all of the elements to be in the right place and the size of the infographic needs to be just right. This can be difficult when using programs like Canva, which don’t give you a lot of options for size and scaling. But there are some tricks and techniques that you can use to make sure your infographic is sized correctly.

The first step is to decide on a size for your infographic. The most important thing to keep in mind when choosing the size is that it should be appropriate for the medium in which it will appear. Will it be used as part of an online article? Then it should probably be no bigger than 800px wide. Will it be used as part of a presentation? Then you may want to consider a larger size, such as 1000px or even 1200px wide.

Once you have decided on a size, you can begin adjusting the elements in Canva accordingly. The best way to do this is to use the “Fit” settings for each element in Canva. These settings allow you to specify how much space each element should take up on the canvas, which will help ensure that everything fits nicely within the desired size range.

You can also manually adjust elements by dragging them around with your mouse or using keyboard shortcuts like “Shift + Arrow Keys” to move them around more quickly and precisely. This technique may take some practice but it can be very helpful when trying to get everything just right.

Finally, if you are having trouble getting everything sized correctly, you can always use Canva’s “Resize” feature. This allows you to quickly resize an entire graphic or individual elements with just a few clicks of your mouse.


Changing the size of an infographic in Canva doesn’t have to be difficult or time consuming if you know what tools and features are available. By deciding on a specific size range for your infographic, utilizing Canva’s “Fit” settings, manually adjusting elements with your mouse or keyboard shortcuts, and using Canva’s “Resize” feature when necessary, changing the size of your infographic becomes much simpler!
