How Do I Shadow Text in Canva?

Shadowing text can be a great way to make your Canva designs stand out! It adds a bit of depth and dimension to text, which can be particularly helpful when you’re designing posters, flyers, and other print materials.

Shadowing text is also a great way to add a subtle but effective highlight to your work. Fortunately, Canva makes it easy to add shadows to your text with just a few clicks of your mouse.

To begin shadowing text in Canva, first open the Text tab in the editor. You can then select the font and size of text you’d like to use.

Once you’ve chosen a font and size, type out the words or phrase that you’d like to shadow. Then click on the “Shadow” button at the top of the menu bar.

The Shadow menu will now appear with several customizable options. You can choose from various effects such as Inner Shadow, Outer Shadow, Perspective Shadow and Drop Shadow.

Each effect has its own set of customization options that allow you to adjust the angle, distance, spread and color of the shadow. You can also adjust the opacity of the shadow if desired.

Once you’ve adjusted all of your settings according to your preferences, click on “Apply” at the bottom right corner of the window and your text should now have a beautiful shadow effect! If you don’t like how it looks or want to make further adjustments later on, simply click on the “Edit” button next to “Shadow” for further customization options.
