On social networking platforms, circular profile images are quickly becoming fashionable.

Cropping the image may be done in two ways. If you’re updating an existing picture or adding a new one, the approach is different.

Cropping a new image

Once you’ve added a new picture to your template, double-click it and crop right away or you can click on the picture once and at the top, click on the Crop option.

The picture now has white corners, as you can see. Drag any of the corners inside the image to crop it to your specifications. Finally, at the top, select the Done option.

Cropping will be applied to your image. If you select the Crop option again, you will see the original image as well. The original image is saved by Canva, and you may access it at any moment.

Ta da! Your image has been beautifully cropped to suit your desired appearance.

Replacing an existing image

Canva will crop your image to match the template design if you pick an existing template and wish to change its image. If you don’t like what Canva has decided, simply select the Crop option. Then drag the image to crop it to your specifications. To save your changes, click the Done button.
