How to Create Custom canva frames?

In the Canva library, You can find hundreds of beautiful frames. Canva creative team is adding new frames in their library frequently. Sometimes available frames do not fulfill our requirements. So we need to create them from scratch.

To create customized canva frames, we need to get support from photopea, an online version of Adobe Photoshop.

Step 1 – Select your desired shape and turned it into complete black. In the case of an image, use brightness with reduced saturation. For elements, change all the colors into black.

Step 2- Download this slide as a PNG/JPG image.

Step 3- Upload this image in photopea. Apply the magic Wand effect on a specific area that you need to cut out or make transparent. Download this image now as PNG from photopea.

Step 4- Upload it again into Canva. Now your custom-made frame is ready. You can use it over any image or element as per your design need. Once you adjust it over your design, remove the background to get a clear look of your frame from the borders.

I have also contacted the canva support team to add this feature "Magic Wand" to their platform. They did not only appreciate the suggestion but were quite willing to add it in the future. See below a snippet of my communication with the canva team for your reference.
