How Do I Resize a Frame in Canva?

Resizing a frame in Canva can be done quickly and easily. It’s an incredibly useful feature that allows you to adjust the size of an image or text box on the canvas. Whether you need to make a frame larger or smaller, Canva has you covered.

When it comes to resizing a frame in Canva, there are two different methods you can use. The first is to use the resize handles on the canvas.

When your cursor hovers over the edge of a frame, it will transform into arrows pointing inwards and outwards. By clicking and dragging these arrows, you can change the size of the frame.

The second method is to use the Properties Panel. When your frame is selected on the canvas, look for the Properties Panel on the right-hand side of your screen. There you will find an option for changing size and position, where you can manually enter values for width and height.

It’s important to note that when you change one dimension (width or height) of a frame, it may cause changes in other dimensions as well; this is because aspect ratio is automatically preserved when resizing frames.


Resizing frames in Canva doesn’t have to be difficult. With just two simple methods – using resize handles or entering values into Properties Panel – anyone can quickly and easily change the size of their frames on the canvas.
