How to blend photos in Canva?
Follow below simple steps below to blend photos into your designs.
Step 1 – Place your photo on the canvas.
Step 2 – Bring the second photo on top of your main photo. Go to the Transparency bar and reduce the intensity by moving the slider backward. You will notice the merging of your second photo into the main photo While reducing the transparency. It depends on the design where you visually feel it appealing, adjust the transparency in that point.
Selection of photos and the position is important, where you merge both the photos in this design technique. See the below example for your reference.
We have selected two photos from the Canva photo section against the keywords “Beach” and “Pineapple”.
You can even find both photos with the same keyword. We first place the beach photo on the canvas and then the pineapple photo over it. After that, we reduce the transparency of the upper photo and apply some adjustments. See the below snippets for your understanding. You can see that the final results are entirely different from the original photos.
