How Do I Crop a Custom Shape in Canva?

Cropping a custom shape in Canva is a great way to make your photos stand out. By cropping a custom shape you can add a unique and creative touch to your images. There are many different shapes you can choose from, including circles, rectangles, triangles, and more. With the help of Canva’s easy-to-use tools, it’s easy to crop your images into any shape that you desire.

First, open the image you want to crop in Canva. Once the image is open, select the “Crop” option at the top of the screen. You will then see a selection of shapes appear on the right side of the screen. Choose whichever shape you want your image to be cropped into and drag it onto your photo.

You will then see that some parts of your photo are now outside of the chosen shape’s boundaries. To adjust this, click and drag on any corner or edge of your chosen shape until it covers all parts of your photo that you want kept in the final result.

Once you have adjusted your chosen shape to fit over all desired parts of your photo, click “Crop” at the top right corner of Canva’s interface. Your photo will then be cropped into the exact shape that you specified earlier.
