What are frames in Canva?
Frames in Canva are design tools that allow users to add a creative touch to their images or photos. They come in various shapes and sizes, such as circles, squares, rectangles, and more abstract shapes. Users can simply drag and drop their chosen image into the frame, and Canva will automatically crop the image to fit the shape of the frame. This feature makes it easy to create professional-looking designs without needing advanced graphic design skills.
In addition to basic shapes, Canva also offers themed frames, such as holiday-themed frames, frames with decorative borders, and frames designed to look like Polaroid photos or film strips. These frames can be used to enhance the aesthetic appeal of social media posts, presentations, posters, and other designs. Users can also adjust the size, color, and orientation of the frames to suit their specific design needs.

This will open a variety of frame options for you to choose from.
To use a frame, simply click on the one you want and it will appear on your design. You can then resize and move the frame to fit your design as needed. To add an image to the frame, go to the "Uploads" tab, select the image you want, and drag it to the frame. The image will automatically adjust to fit the frame.
