There are times when you need to change the orientation of your design from portrait to landscape, or vice versa. If you’re using Canva, you can easily do this by following the steps below.
Select the design you want to change the orientation of, then click “Resize” in the top menu.
In the Resize dialog box that appears, make sure “Custom size” is ticked. Enter the dimensions you want for your design in the Width and Height fields. Input the measurement unit you want to use for the dimensions (px, in, cm, mm). Make sure that the width is greater than the height for a landscape orientation.
To make things less complicated, just interchange the width and length values.
Once you’re happy with the new dimensions of your design, click “Resize” and Canva will automatically apply the changes for you. Adjust the size of the elements according to your liking so it matches the ratio. That’s it! You’ve successfully changed the orientation of your design.
Changing the orientation of your design is just a matter of a few clicks in Canva. So the next time you need to make a landscape poster or a portrait invitation, remember these steps and you’ll be done in no time!
