Making Carousels In Canva For Instagram

CREATE A NEW FILE

SETUP YOUR TEMPLATE

What I would recommend is to layout your branding first along with a light and dark template that can be reused in the future.

DUPLICATE ORIGINAL

Pro Tip: After you have your branding, repeat the slide 2 and use the original as your starter template.

2. Click on All your designs

4. Click on Make a copy

SEAMLESS IS TRICKY

Getting a seamless carousel from Canva is tricky since you can't align your artboards up side by side. However, with a little trial and error, you can work wonders. I would recommend downloading and testing the alignment.

OPERATION SEAMLESS

1. Click on Uploads, upload your image and select it.

2. Align it to the Right edge

3. Duplicate the page

4. Move image and align it to the Left side on new page

5. Download and test alignment

TYPE AND EFFECTS

Add bold text that is readable from 24' away on your device. My theory behind this is that when a user is swiping through their feed, it needs to be able to be quickly read and understood — or else you will lose their attention.

FINISHED DESIGN

When you're finished with your design, you'll have something that looks like this. All that is left is to export your designs.

EXPORTING

1. Click on Publish

2. Click Download

Pro Tip: Leave is as PNG for Instagram or use PDF for LinkedIn

DO YOU USE CANVA?

Yes, I made a Canva tutorial. and to be honest...

I kind've liked it.
